NASA warns: Humans ARE NOT READY for a surprise asteroid impact
NASA 警告:人類還沒準備好迎接一個意外的小行星撞擊

NASA has warned that the human race is still not ready for a surprise asteroid attack and that ‘there’s not much we can do about it at the moment.’ Surely w have developed enough technology to defend our planet against cosmic threats, right?

NASA 警告人類還沒有準備好迎接一個意外的小行星撞擊:「 我們目前對那種狀況幾乎一點辦法都沒有。」

我們真的已經發展出足夠的科技保護我們的星球不受宇宙危險的威脅了嗎?

Even though the chances of a massive asteroid crashing into our planet are extremely rare, scientists warn it may be a matter of time before this threat from space becomes a reality, pointing to several close flybys in the past.

Furthermore, experts warn that the human race is still not prepared for an asteroid impact, and should we discover one heading our way, there’s not much we could do to prevent a catastrophe.

雖然大規模的小行星撞地球的機率非常小,科學家警告我們應該把它當一回事,或許哪天就成真了,而且過去有許多次以極近距離擦身而過的紀錄。

而且,專家警告,人類還沒準備好承受小行星撞地球,當它成真,我們沒有辦法阻止災難的發生。

Dr Joseph Nuth, a NASA scientists at the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland commented that the best thing we can do to protect Earth is to build ‘an interceptor rocket’ to keep in storage that could be used –in the future— in so-called deflection mission during the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union .
‘The biggest problem, basically, is there’s not a hell of a lot we can do about it at the moment,’ said Nuth.
Even though Dr. Nuth clarified that asteroids and comets rarely collide against our planet, the threat is always there.
‘They are the extinction-level events, things like dinosaur killers, they’re 50 to 60 million years apart, essentially. You could say, of course, we’re due, but it’s a random course at that point.’

NASA 在馬里蘭州( Maryland )的高達德太空飛行中心(Goddard Space Flight Center)的科學家 Dr Joseph Nuth 在美國地球物理聯盟(American Geophysical Union, AGU)的年度會議上表示:「 我們所能做的最能保護地球的事,就是建造 “ 一個攔截火箭彈 ”,保存它,然後在未來需要的時候,在所謂的 “ 偏向任務 ” 中使用。基本上,最大的問題是,我們目前沒有什麼真正能做的事。」

雖然 Dr Joseph Nuth 澄清,小行星和彗星撞地球的機會很小,但依然有威脅的可能性。

他說:「 它們是可以導致滅絕的事件,就像恐龍殺手,事實上它們相距五千到六千萬年。你可以說我們差不多要遇到了,但是這是一個隨機的事情,我們無法確定。」

If we look back at the history of our planet, we will realize that several comets have come really close to colliding with our planet.

Dr. Nuth explained that in 96( in 96 這裡無法翻譯 ), a comet came dangerously close to Earth, instead flying into Jupiter. In 2014, another comet came ‘within cosmic spitting distance of Mars,’ according to Dr. Nuth.If you look at the schedule for high-reliability spacecraft and launching them, it takes five years to launch a spacecraft.’
‘We had 22 months of total warning,’ added Dr. Nuth.
In order to prevent a catastrophic event, Dr. Nuth has advised NASA to build an interceptor rocket that could launch within a year. Dr. Nuth says that it ‘could mitigate the possibility of a sneaky asteroid coming in from a place that’s hard to observe, like from the sun.’

如果你回頭看看我們星球的歷史,我們可以發現一些彗星已經來過,並且差點撞到地球。

Dr Joseph Nuth 解釋:「 一個彗星曾非常危險地靠近地球,最後飛向木星。在 2014 年,另一個彗星到來,與火星擦肩而過 。 如果你看著一個可靠太空船的計劃表並且執行它,要花五年的時間才能發射太空船。我們已用 22 個月的時間發出全面警告。」

為了避免災難性事件, Dr Joseph Nuth 建議 NASA 建造一個可以在一年內發射的攔截火箭彈。Dr Joseph Nuth :「 這可以減輕從難以觀察的地方來的星體撞擊地球的可能性,例如從太陽來的。」
