The meteor, which blazed across the southern Ural Mountain range in February , was the largest recorded meteor strike in more than a century, after the Tunguska event of More than 1, people were injured by the shock wave from the explosion, estimated to be as strong as 20 Hiroshima atomic bombs. In preparation for a possible impact, NASA and other international science organisations will participate in the Planetary Defense Conference next week. A 'tabletop exercise' will play out the realistic—but fictional—scenarios for an asteroid and a comet on an impact trajectory with Earth.
The asteroid scenario begins with the premise that on March 26, astronomers 'discovered' an asteroid that they consider is potentially hazardous to Earth. In the fictional simulation, NASA claims the asteroid poses a one in chance of colliding with Earth and it may land on April 29, Weeks of observation found it more and more likely it would impact Earth in but details of the asteroid's shape, size and composition remain scarce.
All that is known is the asteroid's average size could be anywhere from feet to 1, feet meters to meters. More than a month after first spotted it continues to fly towards Earth and passes Earth at a distance of 0. The conference will pick up the event at this point and decide on the best course of action. Experts will discuss the dangers posed by NEOs and actions that might be taken to deflect a threatening object. This diagram zooms in on the intersection point of the orbits and shows the uncertainty in the predicted position of the asteroid red dots reveal potential spots for where the asteroid will pass Earth.
The uncertainty region is several times longer than the diameter of the Moon's orbit but will shrink as more data is gathered on the asteroid's path and trajectory. Intersection of the uncertainty region with the Earth creates a'risk corridor' across the surface of the Earth.
The corridor wraps more than halfway around the globe pictured, red dots are potential landing locations on the risk corridor. NASA is conducting planetary defence drills to see what would happen if an apocalyptic asteroid was heading straight for Earth. The Manicouagan impact crater in Quebec, Canada circled right , is one of our many reminders that asteroids have impacted Earth. The conference will also discuss a hypothetical comet impact scenario.
This fictional event states a comet was spotted on April 4 and could collide with Earth on February 28, It has an orbital period believed to be several thousand years and astronomers speculate that its core is possibly only about 0.
It has an orbital period believed to be several thousand years. Astronomers speculate that its core is possibly only about 0. On April 11, the space agency announced that its radical mission to fire a small spacecraft directly into an asteroid now has SpaceX on the roster, too.
The groundbreaking mission will be the first demonstrated attempt to deflect an asteroid by purposely crashing an object into it at high speed. The DART mission relies on what's known as a 'kinetic impactor' — in this case an eight foot long 2. DART will be targeting the binary near-Earth asteroid Didymos, which measures roughly 2, feet m across.

Which is different from the waters of a sea, which is to represent many nations and people, like that of Europe.
The 'Euphrates' in Revelation 9 is pointing to the setting up of the Ottoman Empire. The 'Euphrates' in Revelation 16 is pointing to the final demise of the Ottoman Empire. So the 'drying up' of the Euphrates River in Revelation 16 is the drying up of the area where Turkey and it's Arab coalition now reside. And this will happen in fulfillment of Daniel , when Turkey and it's Islamic coalition makes war with Israel and moves into Jerusalem to take control. This will leave the area of the Eurphates river 'dried up', ready for what happens next:.
That the way of the kings of the East might be prepared? The way to what? Verse 14 and 16 tells us that the kings are gathered to that place called 'Armageddon' or the 'Hills of Megiddo', near Jerusalem, which overlook the plains of Esdraelon, where mighty battles have been fought before by Barak and Deborah destroying Sisera's army, and where Josiah was routed by the Egyptian king Pharaoh-Necho. This final gathering will be 'the battle of the great day of God Almighty'.
So once Turkey moves to set up camp in Jerusalem, as Daniel prophesies, and comes to his end, probably by the hands of America and the nations of Europe, then the passage way for the 'kings of the East' will be open to come and claim Israel for themselves - Russia, China, Pakistan, India, etc. The Turkish power designated as the River Euphrates , which has separated between the East and the West, gives way; and like the rushing together of mighty storm clouds, the armies of the earth, striving for the territory, meet in the valley of Jehoshaphat , -the ancient meeting place for Egypt and Assyria, known in the Hebrew as Megiddo, and in Greek as Armageddon.
Haskell, Seer of Patmos, p. The answer is obvious.

For what is the way of these kings to be prepared? Answer: To come up to the battle of the great day of God Almighty. Where is the battle to be fought? Near Jerusalem. This is the battle of Armageddon spoken of. A literal battle that will take place under the sixth plague between the nations of the world to gain control of that small piece of land in the Middle East. And what does this mean? It means that another destruction is coming to the nation of Israel and the Jews, contrary to the popular false belief that literal Israel is still God's chosen.
The 'armies' of the Arab nations are surrounding Israel today, and the armies of the nations are also getting ready in position, ready for that final battle! For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Friends, this process of the unclean spirits coming out of the mouths of the dragon, beast and false prophet is already happening today, and will continue building up to the final conflict during the sixth plague.
The dragon represents Pagan Rome and the devil himself, as in Revelation So this represents Paganism, the false religious world. So out of the mouths of the false religious world, the Vatican and the church-state image of the beast in America are coming spirits of demons, deceiving the kings of the earth, in readiness of that final battle. And what has come out of the mouth of the false prophet [apostate Protestant America] recently? The signs are all there to see, so that we will have no excuse not to be ready.
Take a look at these recent news articles regarding a possible 'move' of Turkey and her desire to conquer Jerusalem and make it an Islamic capital:. Turkish President Erdogan tells his citizens that Muslims need to assert dominance over Jerusalem.
Armageddon Soon? ECS**
Turkish Govenor declares that Turkey's forces would soon march into Jerusalem! It is interesting to note that the Papal Church of Rome and the world have long tried to control Islam.
But as God prophesied in Genesis concerning Ishmael There is no taming the Arab world, and one day soon the Arabs will once again come together to make war and conquer Jerusalem, with Turkey, who is by far the most powerful Muslim nation in the world, as the leading nation. But as Daniel says, he will come to his end this time and none shall help him. THEN Jesus will return! They are seeking for 'peace and safety' 1 Thess.

Aerosols soot keep much of the sun's energy from reaching the surface, which means the monsoon doesn't get going with the same force and takes longer to gather up a head of steam. Less rain makes it to crops. At the same time, the buildup of greenhouse gases, coming mainly from developed countries in the northern hemisphere, has a very different effect on the Indian summer monsoons: it acts to make them stronger.
These two opposite influences make the fate of the monsoon difficult to predict and subject to instability.
What Is Armageddon?
A small influence—a bit more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and a bit more brown haze—could have an out- size effect. Lenton believes that the monsoons could flip from one state to another as quickly as one year. What happens then is not a question that Lenton can answer with certainty, but he foresees two possibilities.
One is that the monsoons grow in force and intensity, but come less frequently. We have already seen hints of this in the newspapers. In the last few years rains have grown erratic and less frequent, but when they do come, they tend to dump an enormous amount of water, and in places where they wouldn't normally do so. This is almost as bad for farmers as drought, since the rain falls on parched ground with extra force, and much of it runs off without soaking into the ground, and it causes damage to boot by washing away soil and plants.
The flooding that devastated Pakistan in is a case in point. If this trend continued and strengthened in intensity, it would be bad news for the two thirds of the Indian workforce that depends on farming. It would be nasty for the Indian economy—agriculture accounts for 25 percent of GDP. A permanently erratic and harsh monsoon would depress crop yields, increase erosion on farms, and cause a rise in global food prices as India is forced to import more food.
The other possibility is even worse: the monsoons could shut down entirely. This would be an unmitigated catastrophe. A sudden stopping of monsoon rain, which accounts for 80 percent of rainfall in India, could throw a billion people into danger of starvation.
