In January 2016, NASA established a Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), tasked with ensuring the early detection of potentially hazardous objects – asteroids and comets whose orbits can bring them within about 5 million miles (8 million kilometers) of Earth, and of a size large enough to reach Earth’s surface. PDCO is responsible for tracking and characterizing any potentially hazardous objects, issuing warnings about potential impacts, and providing timely and accurate communications about any actual impact threat while leading the coordination of U.S. Government planning for a response.
To mark International Asteroid Day on June 30, PDCO has aired a special television program with information about the work our Planetary Defense Coordination Office and other NASA-funded programs (as Near-Earth Object Observations Program) do to find, track and characterize Near Earth Objects (NEOs; these are asteroids and comets in the vicinity of Earth’s orbit - between 1.3 and 0.3 Astronomical Units - that could pose an impact threat to our planet).
In 2017, the first “test” of a global asteroid-impact early-warning system took place. The observation campaign was conceived and organized by NASA-funded asteroid observers, overseen by NASA, and included participants from the International Asteroid Warning Network and other international partners. The target of this observing campaign was an asteroid known as 2012 TC4. While scientists knew enough from the short period of discovery observations back in 2012 that it would safely pass Earth this last October, its precise path was uncertain, so it was an ideal target for a planetary defense exercise.
This early-warning-system test went well. Kelly Fast noted, “This was a successful real-life exercise for NASA and for the International Asteroid Warning Network, with smooth recovery of the object, precise prediction of the orbit and tracking of the asteroid as it passed about 27,000 miles from Earth’s surface on October 12th.”
While no known asteroid is predicted to be on an impact course with Earth for the next 100 years, the search goes on, and preparations for planetary defense continue. Lindley Johnson said: “We must keep looking for what we know is still out there to be found.”
It sounds fine. However, not so any longer, after we have realized that we are seeking only across the proverbial "lantern-light spot". We are looking for asteroids because we know where they are. We are not looking, for example, for KBOs (Kuiper Belt Objects), because we cannot see the most of them. However, what is much worse, we are not looking for any objects from outside of the Solar System. We are still believing that our Solar System is an isolated isle of Humanity in a huge galaxy, the hypothetical Milky Way, being itself just one of myriads of generally independent other cosmic objects. The highly dangerous result of this short-sightedness is that such objects like the Chelyabinsk meteor cannot be found before they reach Earth. They are simply not expected because the reason for their existence has still not be accepted by the traditional physics and cosmology. If our Solar System is a member of the huge Cosmic Hierarchy (which Unified Physics has proved it to be), there are millions of cosmic objects in those regions of the cosmic space we are "visiting" periodically together with the entire Solar System. Chelyabinsk meteor could be an object from the Asteroid Belt or Kuiper Belt. But the reason why it was catapulted out of its belt just in 2012 or 2013 towards Earth has to be searched for in the recent cosmic quantum jump of level 1 of the Cosmic Hierarchy.
I am so strongly convinced about this extrasolar connection that I have finished my recent book ("Unified Physics") with the following warning.
We see indeed that the coincidence of the Earth's orbital turning points
with the quantum jumps of level 1 results always in enhanced
frequency of the strongest earthquakes. The next point G of the Earth's
orbit will be reached on 28th October 2018, and point K - on 5th July
2020, just a few weeks after the next cosmic jump of level 1 on 3rd
March 2020. If I would live in a seismic active region, I would be very
careful on all full-moon and new-moon dates around those three dates.
And after 3rd March 2020 I will scan the sky above my head after the
next "Eiffel Tower" falling down.
I hope the next "Eiffel Tower" will not explode above my own city. I hope it will not reach Earth at all.
