ghostofme: "How is 1 billion years the near future?"

pretty much exactly what i was going to say.

I told myself I`d resist, since someone else had to have done this, but here goes:

It wouldn`t be a very "neat" future if these planets collided, now would it? It would be rather messy, if you ask me... XD

I`d be more worried about smaller rocks, like asteroids, colliding with Earth. Plus, like everyone else has been saying, we`ll be long gone from this planet; either from destroying ourselves or moving to a new planet.

By then, humans will have left this dump called earth for better horizons.

Why do you think they put so much efforts in the orbital space station?

Humans will destroy themselves by that time. But I will still be alive on some other planet in some other galaxy....because I will because a ghost and float forever in space. o.o I canz do tat.

It was like watching Rosie O`Donnel and Rush Limbaugh share an embrace, and I recon we`d have the same result. It`d be like combining matter and anti matter but really, neither of them matter.

Wouldn`t that make a new planet? or would it just make a huge mess and asteroids?

I hardly see how colliding with Mars in a billion years makes our future neat.

wait, seriously? 1 billion years? DROP EVERYTHING GUYS! REEK HAVOC ON THE STREETS! STEAL EVERYTHING! DO THINGS YOU CAN`T NORMALLY DO! STREAK! HAVE SEX WITH A !2 YEAR OLD! THE EARTH WILL COLLIDE WITH MARS AND VENUS AT THE SAME TIME IN ONE BILLION YEARS!

1 billion years? those so called "scientists" are wasting their time, that`s a guess, an estimate on natures course of action, with the smallest sway of power this could not happen, this Will not happen. too bad i wont live long enough to see my words in action...unless, anyone wana cryo-freeze me?

In a billion years.

Hopefully, if the idiots don`t keep trying to turn the world into an idiocracy, we`ll figure out the warp drive and find one of the other 34,000 earths.

Hmm, it seemed like Earth`s orbit became smaller than Venus, but I couldn`t tell if our orbit was smaller or Venus bigger.

Anyways, what are the odds of the perfect head on collision they showed? It`d be 100,000,000,000 times more like to be an off-center hit, I`m sure.

Tachiinii, billion years isn`t "the near future" in scientific terms.
At tops they think the universe is 14 billion years old.
Another billion years will be a 15th of the entire existence of the universe..... that`s not small

Calling the orbits unstable implies a completely different physical phenomenon, he would have been better off saying perturbed, or something similar.

Just as the Earth is dynamic and can surprisingly "fix" problems, its just as possible that the orbits would react similarly. Of course its been a couple years since I`ve studied orbits, but it seems like a very unlikely scenario. I`m personally more worried about the Sun`s constant increase in luminosity. It only needs to increase a fraction and then it can boil of the oceans and Earth will be the next Venus. That`s probably on the timescale of a billion years too.

THIS is on topic dont worry.

another pointless research made by there. who the hell give scientists all this money to work out that teh planets will collide in a billion years, and to analyze what amstrong said when he landed on the moon?

i want my money back!!

Well if Humans exist a billion years from now, we will not only have the technology to go to another planet, but we will likely have the technology to simply move the planets into whatever pattern we see fit to. No collisions on our watch.

"Why did the earth look like it does now? In a billion years the continents would have shifted a lot."

True, but they are scientist, not psychics. Plus, most people aren`t smart enough to realize that the planet would look different, and if they made it look different, people would be like "but that`s not the Earth."

If Humans by some chance still existed in a Billion years I would have thought wed have sufficiant technology to go to some other planet.

Technikal, the sun is gonna supernova. It`s still a star and it`s gonna follow the cycle of stars.

Thatwasfunny:
For starters:

Secondly: "In the mantle, temperatures range between 500 °C to 900 °C (932 °F–1,652 °F) at the upper boundary with the crust to over 4,000 °C (7,200 °F) at the boundary with the core."

Thirdly: Much of the kinetic energy will result in heat. Whilst the exact physics of planetary collisions escape me, I`m fairly sure there`s enough energy floating around that a hell of a lot of heat will be generated.

"Isn`t like, Venus a huge ball of gas?"

Venus is a rock planet, the only gas planets are the `gas giants` Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

Bataleon27: if you believe that crap, you are an idiot. Plain and simple. Global warming = natural cycle.

Humanity = cant do poo to the earth. Its too big.


Also, I call BS on this video, anyways. OH MY GOSH, TINY FLUCTUATIONS, IT MUST MEAN THE EARTH IS GOING TO COLLIDE WITH VENUS OR MARS!!! BETTER SPREAD THIS CRAP AROUND!!

Also, the title is misleading for two reasons.

first, a billion years is hardly the near future.

second, it said mars OR venus.

Besides, two years ago they were saying that the sun would go supernova in a billion years, but I guess Mars and Venus are co-conspirators of the sun and they`ve decided to change the plan or something.

No, the earth will have destroyed us. Believe me, it has survived far worse things than little human beings in it`s past.
