Asteroid impact predictionEdit

The Asteroid impact prediction article has just moved from Draft to the main article space. Reviewers suggested that I should add some of the text from the Asteroid impact prediction article to this one (I have linked the Asteroid impact prediction article to this one already). Looking at the avoidance article it seems that it already contains some text on impact prediction, but is not currently identified as such. I.e. the avoidance article does not currently differentiate between the two separate stages of 1. predicting an impact, followed by 2. taking action to prevent the impact from happening.

I can see from comments in the avoidance article that there are some issues with the existing prediction text in that it is now quite out of date. Conveniently the new prediction article is lacking information on the history of impact prediction and could do with some of the text currently in the avoidance article. Can I suggest that we separate out the prediction text in the avoidance article to make it clear it is about prediction (adding a main article link), and then the bulk of the avoidance article can focus on the actual avoidance, which is a separate topic? Correspondingly an "Aftermath" section can be added to the prediction article detailing the options in the event of a predicted impact, which depending on the severity will include avoidance.

It's been a couple of months, and no objections or comments during that time, so I soon plan to start 1. copying the asteroid impact prediction text into the Asteroid impact prediction article, and then 2. removing it from this article, with an ultimate aim to leave this article focused on impact avoidance and the prediction article on prediction. Any last minute comments or objections, please shout up, otherwise I will go ahead under the assumption any interested parties are in agreement.

It's now three months so I have begun work:

  • copied Impact probability calculation pattern Rafflesgluft (talk) 17:28, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
  • copied (and edited) history and deep impact Rafflesgluft (talk) 19:00, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

2019 PDCEdit

Anything about 2019 PDC, which was part of a NASA simulation? -- (talk) 10:25, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

I think it's just the latest of a biennial tabletop simulation series by IAA with minor NASA support, of which Talk:2013 PDC-E seems to be the first. So, one article for the whole series ought to be enough. Jim.henderson (talk) 22:23, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
