#1 Sorry, but I'll trust God + my ancestors + NOstradamus + Madonna before I rely on "agree to disagree" waffling Perts.
Iff its NOT an impact ala APOPHIS which causes Guam, Earth-observed lunar explosions in the future then it could be VOLCANISM, which given the status of the Moon's core + its general composition it could only be vee the SUN.

"That possibility has dropped to one in a million that this object will hit in 2036, so we can breathe a sigh of relief,"

#3 How can it be both a "doomsday asteroid" and not pose a risk?

#8 APOPHIS 2029/30-2036 remains a viable threat because our super-PCorrect, "agree to disagree" future OWG Govts-Perts can't agree on "the Math" or effects.
ADVANTAGE = GOD + GHOSTS + NOSTRADAMUS + MADONNA.

#9 CHINESE MILITARY FORUM [old] > IS OBAMA A NUT? NO DEATH STAR FOR AMERICA | [PCMag.com] WHITE HOUSE: SORRY, WE'RE NOT CREATING A DEATH STAR, starting in 2016 or any other time.
'Tis would cost US$850.00Quadrillion, IMO not counting anti-Rebel TIE Fighters???
Not counting the fact that US Debt-to-GDP is at 175%, not that far off from Japan's 250% but way better than the pre-2014 UK's 600%.
FEAR NOTTETH, AMERIKA, RUSSIA IS ONCE AGAIN TO THE RESCUE, SAVING AMERIKANS FROM AMERICANS ...
* TOPIX > [Russia Beyond the Headlines] RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS COME UP WID PROJECT TO SHOOTDOWN APOPHIS ASTEROID.
Apparently, not everyone on Earth trusts NASA-JPL.
Russian Project would divert or deflect smaller asteroids onto the path of bigger ones, thus inducing certain space rocky oblivion - hilarity to ensue.
[Lest we fergit, TOM CRUISE = "FRANCIS" + "ITS THE WAY THAT YOU USE IT" 1980's MTV Video here].
* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > 2033: A MANNED MISSION TO MARS [ESTIMATED COST: US$1.0TRILYUHN).
* IIRC DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS [old] > CHINA PLANS TO GROW VEGGIES ON MARS.
First thingys come first - US-World Perts = future OWG-NWO have to settle the controversy over "Peak Oil/Resources" lest the only thing that will be accomplished in the Mars mission is sending Astronauts + similar to their inevitable deaths on Mars due to lack of Earth relief as due again to Earth's + OWG's lack of available resources for such. THE EARTH-NAUTS WILL BE LOOKING OUT OF THEIR PORTALS FOR SIGNS OF INCOMING RESUPPLY ANDOR REPLACEMENT SPACE SHIPS THAT MAY NEVER COME???
