Once again, the likelyhood of predicting any exact impact point on Earth of any fragment of Comet Schwassmann Wachmann 3 in 2022 if it is headed our way then is nil. zip. zero. 0.
This is a comet, not an asteroid. In point of fact, if the fragment is dead, it will be a Dark Comet, as reflective as a chunk of charcoal. Likely size ranges: 30, 60, 90 meters diameter. It is going to take Infra red or radar to pick any of those up. Even if the fraagments are still outgassing, their travel times will be very fast, and unlike an asteroid no arc will be swept. They'll just be inbound, coming straight head on.
As for Astronaut Schweikert's efforts, right about now I'm wondering if he needs driver for his golf cart. The ASE is focused on this now, and my hats off to him. Deflection discussions will be undertaken by the UN soon.
Damn it, Damn it, Damn it, Damn it, but I'm tired of this. It's difficult for me to type, and I'm simply exhausted. If Benny had not taken the Cambridge Conference over to promoting anti-global warming propaganda, somebody else who you believe would've told you this, and that would've been the end of it.
