You wrote ...Hi Dru,
You seem well educated from your posts. Let me try to explain to you why both Comet E and the asteroid at I AU from Earth will be non events. Baring a collision, which nobody expects, the relative masses of the comet and the asteroid are so infantesimally small that nothing can happen.
Do you understand scientific notation? The ocean tides are caused by the effect the Moon's mass has upon the Earth's oceans. To a.much lesser degree the Sun also has an impact. Knowing these truths, we must consider objects of similar mass, or distances before we can expect to observe anything profound.
Do you follow me Dru? The asteroid is roughly one AU from Earth. It's mass is less than 7000 tons. Before an object can effect the tides here on Earth, it's gotta be half the Moons mass Dru..
Comet might be more mass-ive, but I doubt it. Size and distance Dru. Space is very, very, very empty and objects are very very very small. Don't expect much folks. Sorry Dru
Yes - I follow you, Mike. And I almost didn't respond to your letter due to how patronizing it is! But then I realized that your beef is actually with the individuals producing the Youtube videos on the subject of Comet Elenin, etc, not with me; so may I suggest that you contact the people producing these videos by writing them with your opinions on the subject.
Keep in mind - I only report, you and others decide ...
Also, here is a letter I wrote on April 27, 2011, which includes a 10-minute video you should watch:
Dear Doves ...According to Mike "Comet Elenin" couldn't possibly be a comet ...so please watch this video and decide for yourself:ysic,Dru~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Mike, after watching this video then please contact "Mike" with what you wrote to me above, since he is the one putting forth this information, not me. And do not write me again because I will not read it.Agape? ...really
