I just thought of that movie Armageddon just now. I'm sure if something like that threatens earth the Japanese will have a giant robot ready to go into space and push it out of the way while Congress is still voting on the color of a very big rocket to shoot at it.

Megamanx00 I don't think Japan has enough room to build the size of robot needed, most likely they'd design it, and the Chinese would build it, and Australia would provide the majority of the resources required.

So when they say that there are potentially thousands of planets with the right conditions for life do they take into account the fact that Earth is extremely lucky to have shields like Jupiter taking hits for us.

"Jupiter, you're my hero. You make all the heroes in the world look weak."

I wanted to say some sort of cheesy Chuck Noris joke but I could not think of any that where funny...

Anyway its cool I just wish there was a youtube video of it happening :)

No not really. Volunteer storm spotters help give the National Weather Service information on conditions to get a more accurate picture of whats going on in the sky.

No because nasa is focused more on other parts of space rather then looking at a planet they already did in the past. Im sure they would of picked up on it eventually

They already made a 1/1 scale model of a Gundam. Lights, mist out of the verts, and the head moves. Check it out:

NASA needs to put Chuck Norris in a space suit to protect us. Then next time an asteroid comes near Earth he can round-house-kick that sucker out of the way. :)
