Hi all some questions

 

for the asteroid on April 30. According to NASA it will be 16 times further than the earth to the moon.

 

 

1- How can they know this for sure?

 

2- How do we know they are being honest with the distances?

 

3- are they the Only ones able to make these calculations?

 

4- Several news sites had articles that it would hit and this was secret info from NASA?

 

5- another site claimed that the Coronavirus was brought up to keep people isolated because of this asteroid to avoid mass panic, so how do we know what’s real vs fiction on this?

 

These things make it hard to determine what is right dosent it?

 

thank you

1 Cosign and tangent.

2 if you use cosign and tangent

3 no, most highschoolers can technically make them if they put in a bit of effort.

4 makes me wonder if those news sites have telescopes, or access to telescopes. Also weather they can use cosign and tangent.

5 get access to telescopes, or at least their historical archive, then use cosign and tangent.

 

Depends on what you define as hard; the ability to determine who actually has credibility when speaking on things, or the ability to make and parse datasets for yourself.

Also depends on what you define as "right."
