is the risk that a hidden asteroid in a stealth-path
will hit the earth of December 21, 2012?

There are thousands of asteroids in hidden orbits
that scientists cannot observe. Many of them were
seen after they kissed the earth and went by in
galactic scale. The known danger from the asteroid
is in 2028. But some scientists are watching the
possibilities that a hidden asteroid in a stealth-path
can destroy human civilization by hitting the
earth on December 21, 2012. This is the same date
when Mayans predicted the end of the world.
The probability that a ‘50-300 Meter (150-1000
Feet) Diameter Asteroid Hitting the Earth’
is 1 in 250. It can actually happen any time.
The estimated fatalities would be 5000. The probability
that a ‘1.5 Kilometer (1 Mile) Diameter
Asteroid Hitting the Earth’ is 2 in 1 million
with estimated fatalities of 1.5 billion. A similar
catastrophe by a ‘10 Kilometer (6 Mile)
Diameter, or greater, Asteroid Hitting the Earth’
has a probability of 1 in 100 million with 10
Some scientists are concerned that Mayans in
their time could see some hidden asteroid paths
that are stealth today. The alignment of Sun,
Moon and the earth on December 21, 2012 is significant
because gravitational release of hidden asteroids
can take place. The probabilities shown above
are in normal circumstances.
However, the probabilities go thirty times higher
during galactic alignments. This means that if
there is a lose asteroid in a stealth path, it
can deviate from its path and come towards the
earth. The biggest problem with the terrestrial
science is that we cannot see these stealth asteroids
till they hit us or go past us.
