A moment of our time – part 14

Part 14 starts off after part 13 where I was discussing the movements of Earth, the solar system, the galaxy and all the other physical objects moving relative to each other.

“Why is this important in our short lives of sequential moments? Many people now know the story of the extinction of the dinosaurs and how a ten kilometre wide asteroid hit the Earth creating the conditions to wipe them out. NASA and other space agencies map all the large near Earth objects. Or at least they believe they map all or most of them. How safe are we? Should we be worried in our short lives of finite moments? On the 30th of June 1908, known today as Asteroid Day, an object, now regarded to be a meteorite or small icy comet flattened two thousand square kilometres of forest with a force equivalent to that of one hundred and eighty five Hiroshima bombs. Then in 2013, on February 15th, Chelyabinsk and for an area of some five hundred square kilometres around it daily life was interrupted by a twenty metre meteorite exploding around thirty kilometres up in the atmosphere. Almost fifteen hundred people were injured many by broken glass. NASA by the way is looking for objects seven times the size and more than the object exploding over Chelyabinsk. So as each of our precious moments passes, spare one or two to ask the question on why we develop better ways of killing each other because of the ideology sitting behind those imaginary lines drawn on Earth’s surface, than on protecting us from the potential of celestial objects doing far worse. Time to mention six degrees of separation, an idea that dates back to 1929 by Frigyes Karinthy suggesting that we are all connected to each other through six human contacts. A lot of research still looks into this and if true why do we have fear of the other?”
