On July 16, 1994, the Hubble tele- scope made it possible for scientists to observe a comet striking a planet, reinforcing our ideas of the effects such a catastrophe would have on Earth. The victim was Jupiter. One fragment alone of a string of 21 striking that distant giant hit with a force 75 times all the nuclear weap- onry in existence, creating wounds the size of our own mother planet. But bey, notto worry. After all, we possess nuclear capability! All you have to do is view the movie Arma- geddon to witness our mighty de- fense. If an asteroid or meteor proved menacing to our little planet, we simply send our own version of nuclear laden space cow- boys on their merry way to intercept the thing and blow it to smithereens. Guess what. Such a protection from judg- ment day is a hoax. Our demise from those planetoid space invaders is a real possibility, because we are inca- pable of mounting a defense. Bill Bryson's latest book A Short History of Nearly Everything effec- tively demythologizes the myth. Lis- ten to his description of what science tells us about these potential threats to human existence, and how men- acing they really are. First: Would we have a warning? Unless spotted by a telescope, no. By the time a naked eye saw the thing, it had already hit the atmo- sphere - and that would be one sec- ond before it hit Earth. But suppose a telescope saw one bearing down on us? Even ifa nuclear warhead could hit it, the fragments remaining would be intensely radioactive as they plunged our way. Such planetoids (100 million of those larger than 10 meters cross Earth's path) are traveling "many tens of times faster than the fastest bullet." At such speeds, if one hit us, air beneath it couldn't get out of the way, so the air would compress re- sulting in temperatures "ten times the surface temperature of the Sun. Every living thing within 150 miles that hadn't been killed by the heat of entry would immediately be killed by the blast." Within minutes, if the meteor hit a place like Manson, Iowa today (as it did millions of years ago), the entire Midwest would be flattened or on fire. Devastating earth- quakes would result, vol- canoes become active, tsunamis head for shores. One and a half billion people would die the first day. Dark- ness would cover the planet, burn- ing rock and other debris would set the planet afire. It strikes me that given such de- structive possibilities, we must owe something to God's protective provi- dential shielding of us so far. An~0" yet, we don't know what the future holds. All we see and live with can be gone in an apocalyptic flash. It certainly makes more persuasive the words of Jesus: You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come (Matt. 24: 44). We want to welcome Mr. Kenneth Coo- per to our calendar each month on the third Sunday. He will be bringing a spe- cial guest, "Singing Hands" Marlene Fox. The Glenville Elementarty School will be coming over on the 25th to fly kites in our backyard. We look forward to hav- ing you!
