Re: I don't think it's a spoof
side topic rising 2 points off the stbd bow .... thar she blows!!!

the ocean current that drives the warming Gulf Stream flow to Britain has decreased by 30% in 12 years.

this slowing down would also mean that more temperature is lost from the current while along the east coast, warming us more, and that more warm temperature water is backed up in the hurricane belt?

might need a new topic.

The problem for Walt is the specific distribution of the asteroids and meteors versus the "global" distribution of his launch mechanism.

To get them into stable orbits that match current positions and speeds and orbits, there can only be a small segment of the earth where a vertical launch could achieve it.

All the rest would be wasted (would not contribute to the observed distribution), and this would be about 99% ...

Rocks launched vertical to the plane of earths orbit, and rocks lauched along the line of the earth/sun, and any others launched in the plane of these two lines, would have the same orbital inertia as the earth, which means that they would all have intersecting orbits with the earth.

Now we could calculate the energy needed to launch the rocks into those stable asteroid orbits and then use that same energy to calculate when the returning perpendicular plane rocks would impact ...

And I'll bet that one could also find some curious orbits that should have asteroids in them if this model were true (retro-grade, eccentric, etc) that do not exist...

If we were really interested in such nonesense.
