The Earth has been getting hit by asteroids and comets its whole life. The planets formed from collisions of smaller objects, and even our water may have come largely from comets. Heavy bombardments may have continued until as recently as 4 billion years ago, making it difficult for life to get a foothold at all (the “Late Heavy Bombardment”).
Is there an asteroid or comet out there that poses a risk to life on Earth? Many in science would answer, most certainly…”yes.” But where?? Do we know when? What does it all mean? Can it impact every aspect of mother earth?? How can we prepare? Do we really stand a chance of discovering meter-sized rocks while they are still in space before they burn up in our atmosphere, as many mainstream movies predict? Can we really begin to link meteorites that we study in our labs with the data on orbits and compositions that we amass with astronomical observations??
Indeed we can! Every meteorite, every tiny asteroid has a story, and we can combine these stories together to answer fundamental questions about our solar system, such as:
Can asteroids serve as stepping-stones for human travel to farther destinations? Considering end time bible prophecy reveals that asteroids are a sign that precedes the rapture, can NASA protect us from a dangerous asteroid strike?
Scientists in the know, say yes.
Revelation 12 Timeline to Asteroid MUST SEE!
The best way to innerstand it all and reduce this uncertainty is to search the skies for these crumbs of the solar system for ourselves. There are many science and alternative media sites that were created to discover and track potentially hazardous near-Earth objects. (see more on this in the links below)
This is useful not only for planetary defense, but also for learning about earths solar system, its origin and the evolution of it all.
John Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy claims that NASA will play a leading part in protecting the United States and the world from the threat of a dangerous asteroid strike.
According to Matthew 24:29: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
The word “star” that is found in the New Testament is translated into English from the Greek word astēr. One of the signs in the heavens that will take place after the tribulation is that asteroids will fall to earth.
During the judgment of Noah’s day, all the springs of the great deep burst forth. Just as the waters beneath the earth were held in reserve as an outpouring of God’s judgment, so the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter is held in reserve awaiting the outpouring of the final plagues of Revelation. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:30-31
Jesus replied to his disciples’ inquiry concerning the sign of his second coming and the end of the evil world system by telling of the signs of his return. After the time of great persecution commonly known as the Great Tribulation, the signs in the heavens will include asteroids falling from the sky. After those signs, God’s elect will meet the Lord in the air as they are captured out at the Rapture.

FACTS: Every thing in the solar system spins, from the biggest planets to the smallest asteroids. And nearly everything that spins, spins at an angle to its orbit. Therefore, nearly everything in the solar system has seasons. Remember Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko? It was no exception when Rosetta arrived there last year, it was summer in the comet’s north. Winter darkness covered the comet’s south, leaving a large chunk of it invisible to Rosetta’s cameras. Since then, the season has shifted…bringing sunlight to more and more of the southern hemisphere. As Mattias Malmer pointed out on Twitter, a recent Rosetta image has revealed a good part of that southern terrain to the public for the first time. (see image below)

NEAR EARTH OBJECTS RESEARCH
In terms of orbital elements, NEOs are asteroids and comets with perihelion distance q less than 1.3 AU. Near-Earth Comets (NECs) are further restricted to include only short-period comets (i.e orbital period P less than 200 years). The vast majority of NEOs are asteroids, referred to as Near-Earth Asteroids (NEAs). NEAs are divided into groups (Aten, Apollo, Amor) according to their perihelion distance (q), aphelion distance (Q) and their semi-major axes (a).
