    socalrider pathetic and rude

    news radio im listening to said 19 miles per second.

    i dont know the conversion rates and dont really care but that is crazy to think about.

    Lawn Dart Difficult. With a big D.

    So, I was a few miles per hour off...

    I thought everything slowed down to "hundreds" when it hit the atmosphere due to friction and burnoff... shows what I know...

    19 m/s X 3600 s/hr = 68,400 m/hr..........sounds way too high to me?

    Unbelievable...was just watching 'The Universe' on H2 last night and they were doing a one-hour block on meteor strikes. Apparently we're due for a potential doozy in 2036.

    Edit: Here ya go http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99942_Apophis

    68,400 miles per hour. I saw one quote that said 19 miles per second.

    I wonder if this has to do with that BA meteor that's going to pass the Earth later today and if there will be more.

    For perspective the Apollo capsules entered the atmosphere at approximately 23,000 mph, shuttle around 17,000 mph. This piece of rock was hauling a$$.

    One of the better explanations I have seen was on NBCNews.com
