Waiting for Armageddon

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — How many centuries has mankind existed, how many centuries has it awaited the end of the world. For different nations, professing different religions, the end of the world is just an obsession. Its forms may be different, but the essence remains the same: on earth, everything will perish. Or almost everything …

Theologians, forecasters of the future, science fiction writers, magicians – all and sundry try to interpret the text of the Apocalypse, correlating it with real events, achievements of science and technology, political trends.

Moreover, the interpretation is both literal and generalized. And every time, starting, probably, from the moment the Apocalypse appeared, there were analogues with one or another day of human life.

People have seen more than one Antichrist in human guise, experienced terrible disasters, very similar to those predicted, but nevertheless the world has not collapsed. Will it crash this time? “You bear the name as if you were alive, but you are dead.” Are we alive or already dead? Maybe a block sweeping through the abyss of the Universe counts our last months, weeks and days? Or maybe universal death will appear to us in the form of a more dangerous virus than AIDS? Or will global warming begin to grow exponentially? Nobody knows that …

Among miraculous disasters, of course, include floods, volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters. However, the likelihood that the Flood began without any prerequisites for this, as well as the appearance of tens of thousands of active volcanoes, seems very negligible. All this, again, may be the result of a global space catastrophe.

What else can be attributed to such a concept as death miraculous? Certainly a threat from outer space. Thousands of cosmic bodies move along dangerous paths close to the Earth, whose sizes range from tens of meters to several kilometers. So the plot of the sensational Armageddon film, shot in 1999, is not so far-fetched.

Moreover, in the summer of 2000, a giant asteroid at a distance of no more than two hundred kilometers flew by Earth absolutely real. And if, God forbid, he collided with the surface of the Earth, the consequences would be akin to the extinction of the dinosaurs: a gigantic emission of dust and smoke into the atmosphere, as a result of which the cooling of the Earth’s surface and – two ice age. In addition, from the impact of such a significant cosmic body, the inclination of the earth’s axis could well have changed, which, in turn.

By the way, NASA (United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is more than serious about this threat. So, the department developed a program of landing and delivery of cargo to the comet. However, work in this direction was recently suspended. NASA Space Program Manager Edward Weiler said that this is not due to the underdevelopment of science or human capabilities. The reason for the suspension was an unsuccessful timing. Currently, NASA is simultaneously implementing a number of expensive projects, as a result of which banal financing problems have arisen. So ST-4 “Champollion” – the so-called apparatus for landing on Comet Tempel-one – will not go into space soon. Another NASA American scientist, Brian Muirhead, believes That this project is very important. The density of the comet’s substance ranges from concrete to cotton candy. Muirhead noted that comets – clods of ice, sand and metals – do not have clear orbits and therefore often deviate from their trajectories. Collisions of comets with the Earth have already happened, they are not excluded in the future. Muirhead, in particular, said: “If humanity is serious about its defense, then it should know much more about it.” Probably, sooner or later, funds for the ST-4 program will be sought. The only trouble is that NASA’s financial problems are completely indifferent to asteroids and comets. In the meantime, the likelihood of a critically dangerous approach of the Earth to the asteroid 1997XF11 in 2028 is very high. Before that, Eros (433), Chiron (2060), Matilda (253), and a lot of smaller bodies, will “visit us”. The density of the comet’s substance ranges from concrete to cotton candy.

Do not forget that the process of turning the Earth into a giant garbage dump continues. Climate warming over the past decades is nothing but the result of human industrial activity. If a year ago there was one “ozone hole” in the planet’s atmosphere, now there are two of them – at both poles. And the sun’s rays breaking through them slowly but surely melt the ice caps of the planet. In the summer of 2000, giant “lakes” were formed at the poles, which were formed in the thickness of the ice shell.

So it’s hard to say what scale environmental disasters must reach in order for humanity to reflect on its activities. In November 2000, the Hague hosted an international meeting on global warming. In front of the building where she was passing, environmental demonstrators built an improvised dam as a symbol of the fact that warming will inevitably lead to an increase in water levels in the oceans.

At least for states such as Britain, Japan and the Netherlands, even a relatively small increase in the level is fraught with disaster. And our St. Petersburg will be in a critical situation.

There are other ways in which humanity can take its own life. In September 2000, an article appeared in the Internet network under the optimistic title “Doomsday is postponed to March-April?” It talked about a grandiose physical experiment to simulate the conditions of the emergence of the universe, which American scientists are going to put on at the Brookhaven National Laboratory.

In fact, we are talking about reproducing in terrestrial conditions the parameters of the so-called “black holes”, or, in physical terms, a quark-gluon plasma. A number of scientists expressed concerns about this, that as a result of the experiment, something like a chain reaction may occur, as a result of which the “black hole” will begin to absorb earthly matter.

The experiment, scheduled for November 1999, was delayed due to minor displacements of the magnets inside the ring tunnel, as well as due to leakage of helium from the refrigerator valve. As a result, humanity, apparently, received a short timeout. Whether such experiments will lead to an irreversible process of absorption of terrestrial matter or not, no one can say this.

At one time, scientists working on the Manhattan atomic bomb project were extremely serious about the danger of destroying the Earth’s atmosphere in a nuclear explosion.

Then nothing happened. There were similar concerns when testing the hydrogen bomb. And although the power of the explosion was incomparably greater, everything, fortunately for earthlings, ended happily. However, is it possible to guarantee that the next experiment in little-studied areas of physics will not lead us to a man-made end?
