Will life on Mars go the way of the dinosaurs before we have a chance to discover it? Incoming Comet C213/A1, discovered on January 1st, is expected by some astronomers to pass within 28,000 miles of Marsin 2014. But cometary trajectories change, and an impact is not impossible, although NASA estimates that the object will pass Mars at a distance more like 80,000 miles.
Should it hit the planet, it will cause a spectacular explosion, releasing the equivalent energy of billion megatons of TNT. This is roughly the size of the blast that climaxed the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
If a comet of similar size were to strike Earth, civilization, along with most human and other life, would end. At present, though, there are no known celestial bodies of such size likely to hit our planet in the near future.
Are the Visitors which our "contactees" keep experiencing "refugees" from some similar catastrophe on another planet? (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to these provocative interviews, which were recorded just for THEM).
It's only one of the MANY scenarios we'll discuss at our Nashville Symposium in May. To get your tickets, click here. The price includes breakfast Saturday and Sunday and lunch on Saturday.
