Every two years, the international government and space agencies take part in a tabletop scene as part of the Planetary Defense Conference. In this exercise, a space rock was found to be advancing towards Earth and can defeat team members and what are the best things to do to avoid disaster. In 2019, a bold deflation mission expressed concern about the dire consequences. An asteroid that about to affect Denver moved to New York.
The Big Apple fell to the ground. The whole scene played out eight imaginary years of technical perspective and political dissent. For 2021, there was a completely different idea of the urgency of the selected scene. The discovered asteroid is only going to be effective in six months.
At the beginning of the conference, members of these organizations received a report of a fictional asteroid called 2021 PDC and discovered the report that our planet arrived on October 20, 2021 with a five percent chance of reaching our planet. At first there are many uncertainties. We don’t know if it will hit (but let’s practice a tabletop of it will definitely hit it), where and how big. The first estimates, based on a fake weekly study, suggest a body within 35 meters (115 feet) but could probably grow up to 70,000 meters (2300 feet).
On the first day the team is monitoring how this can be done and how serious the situation is. International groups are urged to consider a possible deflation mission. With more than a week of observations, astronomers believe they may have a better idea of whether or not it is hitting. Currently, the target region extends to two-thirds of the planet, securing Southeast Asia, Australasia and Antarctica. The second day begins after this imaginary week. In such a short amount of time, astronomers have been tracking it almost continuously and it is certain that it will have an impact. The team also knows it will end up anywhere in Europe or North Africa.
This was possible because the asteroid was actually caught on previous observations but was not actually recognized. The second day saw a detailed look at what missions could be sent to remove such an asteroid. And that’s not good news. The asteroid is too close and too fast (and probably too big) to correct the course. So you should hit it hard. Either a nuclear weapon as the largest of all time during the Cold War, or it fired like dozens of rockets with the risk that it will break and still crash on Earth.
