Elon Musk Warns ‘God of Chaos’ Asteroid May Hit Earth In 2029

A decade from now, a huge potentially hazardous asteroid, named after the ancient Egyptian deity of evil and destruction, will whizz by the Earth with a one in 45,000 chance of hitting our planet.

NASA has already begun preparations for the impending arrival of asteroid 99942 Apophis, also known as the “God of Chaos”, which will pass within 31,000 kilometres of Earth’s surface on 13 April 2029.

God of Chaos

Set, also known as Seth and Suetekh, was the Egyptian god of war, chaos and storms, brother of Osiris, Isis, and Horus the Elder, uncle to Horus the Younger, and brother-husband to Nephthys. His other consort was the goddess Tawaret, a hippo-headed deity who presided over fertility and childbirth. He is one of the first five gods created by the union of Geb (earth) and Nut (sky) after the creation of the world. His name is usually translated as “instigator of confusion” and “destroyer” and he was associated with disorder, foreign lands and people, and the color red.

Potential danger

Roughly the size of four football fields (approx 340 meters across), if the space rock were to hit Earth, it would smash us with the force of 15,000 nuclear weapons detonating simultaneously.

However, Musk rightly cautions that the entire Apophis narrative is a little overblown: during its close flyby in 2029, the asteroid will come within 37,600km (23,363 miles) of our planet, just a tenth of the distance between Earth and the Moon. Scary but not quite apocalyptic.

The scientists suggest while it will travel more than the width of the full Moon within a minute when it screams past Earth on April 13, 2029, the giant asteroid will more likely provide a magnificent spectacle for stargazers than the doom of all life on Earth.

NASA’s preparations

While NASA scientists have been preparing to study the giant rock as it swings past Earth, one particular space connoisseur has been unfazed by the issue.

Elon Musk, Tesla, SpaceX and The Boring Company CEO, took to Twitter to reassure his pal, podcast host Joe Rogan, who had retweeted an article about the “God of Chaos” that 99942 Apophis was not a subject of concern – for now.

In fact, NASA and Musk’s SpaceX are working together on the space agency’s first spacecraft impact asteroid redirect mission, which will be a key test before the actual need to protect the planet from a giant rock approaching the planet.

Under the so-called Double Asteroid Redirection Test, which is scheduled for June 2021, one of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets will launch in the direction of asteroid 65803 Didymos (or “Didymain”) and its tiny satellite Didymoon to see if it could redirect the rock from its intended path. To that end, the space agency has paid $69 million to Musk’s venture.

Aside from this, NASA announced earlier this year that it had teamed up with international partners to perform a “tabletop exercise” on how to handle a hypothetical asteroid on a collision course with Earth.

This is the largest asteroid that will probably hit Earth, the NASA Impact System warns

NASA’s impact monitoring system has detected the largest and most dangerous asteroid that could hit Earth. If this asteroid collides with Earth, it could cause an event of extinction partial on the planet.

The dangerous asteroid has been identified by NASA as 29075 (1950 DA). This asteroid is currently being tracked by Sentry, which is the automated asteroid impact monitoring system of the POT. With an estimated diameter of approximately 1,320 meters, 29075 (1950 DA) is currently the largest asteroid on the list of Sentry that has the possibility of hitting the Earth.

According to NASA, 29075 (1950 DA) is classified as an Apollo asteroid, which means it has a wide orbit that surrounds the Sun and Earth. Occasionally, the asteroid’s orbit intersects with Earth’s when the planet cycles around the giant star.

Due to its natural orbit that crosses the Earth and its gigantic size, 29075 (1950 DA) has been labeled as a potentially dangerous asteroid.

NASA explained in a release:

Potentially dangerous asteroids are currently defined based on parameters that measure the potential of the asteroid to make threatening approaches to Earth. Specifically, all asteroids with a minimum orbit intersection distance of 0.05 astronomical units or less and an absolute magnitude of 22.0 or less are considered (potentially dangerous asteroids). ”

Unlike the other asteroids that are on the list of Sentry, only a potential impact on Earth was detected for 29075 (1950 DA). Depending on the monitoring system, this impact event could take place on March 16, 2880.

Sentry He noted that if the asteroid ends up hitting Earth on this date, it could do so with a speed of more than 64,374 kilometers per hour. The speed of the asteroid, combined with its massive size, indicates that an impact event in 29075 (1950 DA) would cause high levels of destruction on Earth.

Although this asteroid is smaller than the one that caused the extinction of dinosaurs millions of years ago, 29075 (1950 DA) is still large enough to completely eliminate entire cities and even states. The energy that will be released from its impact could be powerful enough to cause extreme environmental effects.

As we have already said, the question is not: will an asteroid collide with the Earth? The question is when will it do so?

Giant asteroid 2000 CH59 will pass near the Earth on December 26

While science is developing a planetary defensive weapon to protect the Earth from asteroids, a giant space rock 620 meters in diameter will pass near the Earth on December 26, 2019. The large asteroid 2000 CH59 travels in space at a breakneck speed of 44,200 kilometers per hour. It should be noted that the Chelyabinsk asteroid in 2013 had a diameter of about 17 meters, but caused very serious damage.

Giant asteroid 2000 CH59 will pass near the Earth on December 26

Giant asteroid 2000 CH59 will pass near the Earth on December 26

If the asteroid 2000 CH59 bombards the Earth, then this will cause enormous destruction around the world, millions of people will die in a split second. Experts classified the 2000 CH59 facility as Apollo class asteroid. Such cosmic bodies have wide elliptical orbits and are often affected by the gravitational forces of nearby planets.

A gravity “keyhole” is an area in space where “invasion bodies,” such as asteroids, are subject to the gravitational attraction of neighboring planets. But as space researchers say, the asteroid 2000 CH59 on December 26th will not be so close to us. And as a consequence, probability of an asteroid collision can be completely ruled out.

According to the US Space Agency, the asteroid will pass about 7 million / km from Earth. Not to say that this is a safe distance, although experts do not see this as a threat. But this does not prevent some responsible scientists from assuming that we should protect ourselves.

Natalie Starkey, a space scientist at Open University, suggested that a nuclear weapon preventive attack is the best way to protect the Earth from asteroid impacts. She believes that asteroid bombing at the last moment can lead to fallout, while a preventive attack on the asteroid threat is much more effective.

The prediction of the end of the world.

As we published earlier, David S. Montaigne, a freelance writer and researcher, said the Mayan apocalypse was misinterpreted in 2012. According to his spring predictions, the day of final decision will be at the end of 2019.

According to Montaigne, the end of the world in 2012, based on the Mayan calendar, was only the beginning of a seven-year period of disasters. 2019 marks the end of this time period.
So, according to Montaigne’s one-year prediction, the end of the world will begin on December 21, 2019. Interestingly, seven days after December 21, an asteroid with a diameter of up to 620 meters will approach our planet.

“December 21, 2019 ends seven years and the heavenly wedding week begins,” Montaigne explained … December 26, 2019 the bride receives the groom’s ring … December 28, the wedding ends the final court day with a pole shift that will create a new heaven and new earth. ”

Not all biblical prophecy experts agree that the asteroid 2000 CH59 is an apocalyptic sign. Some consider this a mere coincidence.
They also say that this has nothing to do with the Second Coming of Christ, since Jesus was not born on the widely celebrated Christmas, December 25th.

The Bible does not indicate the exact date of Jesus’ birth, but some clues indicate the spring. The date of December 25 was adopted by the first Christians of pagan traditions in an attempt to facilitate the transition to a growing religion.

Do you think the Montaigne prediction and the Mayan calendar are fulfilled?

Hundreds Of Earthquakes Rattle The U.S. As The Level Of Seismic Activity In North America Continues To Rise

(Michael Snyder) Why is the mainstream media being so quiet about all of the seismic activity that has been happening all across the United States?

During the last 7 days, there has been an earthquake swarm directly along the New Madrid Fault zone, Kansas and Oklahoma have been hit by a very unusual number of significant quakes, and there have been several sizable seismic events in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano.  But of course the west coast is getting hammered more than anyone else.  According to Cal Tech, there have been more than 1000 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last week, but of course most of them have been very small.  Overall, the latest USGS numbers tell us that there have been more than 2,000 earthquakes nationally during the last 7 days, and apparently we aren’t supposed to be alarmed by that.  But could it be possible that all of this seismic activity is leading up to something really big?

Over the weekend, we witnessed some very unusual quakes in the middle of the country.  On Sunday, a magnitude 3.2 earthquake rattled Kansas…

The Kansas quake hit at 9:08 p.m. Central time near South Hutchinson, northwest of Wichita, according to the USGS. About 175 people reported feeling the tremor, some as far away as Osborne and Concordia, Kansas.

Thankfully that quake hit in an area with a very low population density, and so it didn’t affect that many people.

But then on Sunday, a series of relatively large earthquakes hammered Oklahoma

3.0-magnitude earthquake hit near Fairview in northern Oklahoma, at 1 a.m. Sunday, followed by a 2.6-magnitude quake at 1:37 a.m. near Quinton in eastern Oklahoma, the USGS reports. A 2.7-magnitude tremor rattled Waukomis in northern Oklahoma at 4:25 p.m. Saturday

Overall, there have been 143 earthquakes in Oklahoma in the last 30 days, and the increasing level of seismic activity in that part of the nation definitely has a lot of people on edge.

But of much greater concern is what has been happening along the west coast.  The two major quakes that hit California in July were followed by more than 100,000 aftershocks, and scientists are warning that this “may have increased stress on parts of a major dormant fault line”

A series of earthquakes which shook Southern California earlier this year may have increased stress on parts of a major dormant fault line which has not produced any significant activity since records began, according to a study.

Scientists from the University of Iowa examined the so-called Ridgecrest earthquakes, which began with a 6.4 magnitude foreshock in the Mojave Desert on July 4, followed the next day by a 7.1 magnitude quake—the largest in Southern California for two decades. In addition, more than 100,000 smaller aftershocks were recorded.

The “dormant fault line” which they are talking about is the Garlock Fault.

And the Garlock Fault runs directly into the San Andreas Fault.

One day there will be a massive quake that fundamentally alters the geography of southern California, and let us hope that day is delayed for as long as possible.

Meanwhile, we have also witnessed some unusual rumbling off the coast farther north.

In fact, five large earthquakes were detected off of the Oregon coast last month.  The following comes from a news story that was posted on October 21st

A magnitude-4.6 earthquake Monday morning became the fifth to strike off the Oregon coast since the beginning of the month.

The quake rumbled around 6:47 a.m. about 120 miles west of Bandon and at a depth of roughly 6 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

On Thursday, a magnitude-4.7 temblor struck about 95 miles from Port Orford — just hours after students in Coos and Curry counties participated in an annual earthquake drill.

The reason why these quakes are so alarming is because they happened in the vicinity of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

As Steve Quayle recently told Greg Hunter, someday the Cascadia Subduction Zone will suddenly come to life, and it will be the greatest natural disaster that we have seen so far in all of American history…

What’s the worst case scenario if the Cascadia Subduction Zone lets loose and volcanos, earthquakes and tsunamis are unleashed? Quayle says “The amount of damage, and I am going to choose my words carefully, is going to be precedent setting. It’s going to be the combination of volcanos going off that are inland from the subduction zone where the plates meet, coupled with tsunamis. . . . When this happens, you will lose eight million to twenty million people. When it happens, you will lose all productivity in the electronic field, obviously Silicon Valley, and all food production in all of California, Oregon and Washington. When it happens, you will have a State of Emergency unlike any other. How about the refugees? There will be 3.5 million refugees to take care of. When this happens, what happens to the underground aquifers, and where does everybody go for fresh water? There will be years of drought, years of famine and years of water, water where did it all go? It is a very dire situation painted by computer models. This is not a sensational thing. It is a reality based, scientific study with the application of what happens.”

Quayle warns that the public would likely have roughly “15 minutes to get to safety,” and “the tsunami waves would be 500 to 1,500 feet tall.”

You can see the trailer for the new film that is being produced about the Cascadia Subduction Zone right here.  I am so glad that this movie is being made, because I have been trying to warn people about what is going to happen for a long time.  For example, the following comes from one of my previous articles entitled “You Have Been Warned: Experts Tell Us That A Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake And Tsunami Will Destroy Everything West Of Interstate 5”

One day it will happen. With little or no warning, the Cascadia Subduction Zone will produce a catastrophic earthquake and accompanying tsunami that will essentially destroy everything west of Interstate 5 in the Pacific Northwest. It will be the worst natural disaster up to that point in American history, and as you will see below, the experts are saying that we are completely and utterly unprepared for it. Of course the San Andreas Fault gets more publicity, but the truth is that the Cascadia Subduction Zone is capable of producing a quake “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything the San Andreas Fault can produce.

Scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before such a disaster takes place.

So essentially those living right along the coast are taking a huge gamble.

Day after day, they hope that there is still at least a little bit more time before the Cascadia Subduction Zone absolutely devastates the Northwest.

Of course up until now that gamble has paid off, but one day their luck will suddenly run out.
