only 125 times more at it would disappear (Speed of light) - pretty dam fast - if that hits "something" at that speed and mass(e=mc2) that will be quite a show - hope its no us - love the jet stream its leaving.

Yeah, that coming in your direction would put a crimp on your day. It's fascinating stuff, it almost seems that nothing is impossible out there.

That's scary and amazing at the same time. If this were heading for us, I wonder how easily we would have identified the fact. (it would get bigger, but would we have noticed?)

I don't know if we would. There is a good few things we have up there that are tuned to detect minute movement, or fractional changes in light output. But something coming straight towards us, would be a barely imperceptible change, maybe until it was too late. 


 


Look how many Asteroids have been near miss events, and we didn't see them until they were going away from us.

Oh Well we will never know what hit us  :)


 


Think there are things closer to home that might be more dangerous  :(
