NASA on comet Elenin: It won’t kill us all

Rest easy, Earthlings. You will not be obliterated by a comet.

At least, not right now.

NASA is fighting back against rampant Internet rumors that the comet Elenin is going to strike the Earth or screw up its gravitational pull in October. Stopping just short of rolling their eyes at the doomsday rumors, NASA astronomers had this to say: It’s just not happening. Period.

“Any approximate alignments of comet Elenin with other celestial bodies are meaningless, and the comet will not encounter any dark bodies that could perturb its orbit, nor will it influence us in any way here on Earth,” said NASA scientist Don Yeomans in a Q&A released this week.

Phew. Had me worried there for a while.

The Q&A feature addresses most of the rumors you’ve probably seen bouncing around the Internet. For instance whether Elenin will block out the sun for three days (ummm, no) or that NASA is covering up concern about its impact on Earth. (For the record, NASA wants you to know it’s really, truly not concerned.)

The final word on what will happen when Elenin passes by in October? Here’s NASA’s definitive statement: “Comet Elenin will not come closer to Earth than 22 million miles (35 million kilometers). That’s more than 90 times the distance to the moon.”

truth or fiction? thank God that we as believers trust not in man. our trust is in our Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent God!! Hallelujah!! Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

..Let us keep watch

I agree with your assessment pookaloo! We should also remember that our government is capable of anything. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:12. You should take a look at this site: If this it true regarding 911, then our government is truely in control by the enemy.

NASA sure has been busy

Is this the same NASA that came out yesterday and said Earths could be decimated by Aliens angry with our CO2 emissions? I personaly think it's a disinformation campaign. After the rapture people will be looking for answers and those who don't know the Lord will be sent a "strong delusion."

Guardian not "completely" honest...

Notice "the last statement of disclaimer" at the bottom of the page added after NASA complained...apparently attributed to them (NASA) in the original article...when in truth it was written "for" them by others wanting to mis-lead...and make it seen it was from NASA. Welcome to the nimrodian news standards...

"• This article was amended on 19 August 2011. The subhead said the report was "for Nasa". This has been corrected."
