    Another TV series that I suspect was sponsored by the powers-that-be to debunk UFO's was 'Project UFO' of the 1970's-
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077065/

    On paper it sounded good; two fictional Air Force officers go around investigating close encounters that were based on true real-life incidents, BUT each episode usually ended by them concluding with something like- "It could simply have been a 'X', we can never know for sure"

    (At 'X' insert weather balloon/hallucination/trick of the light/natural phenomena/mirage/drunk or druggy witnesses /hoax/scam etc etc)

    In other words, every episode subtly introduced an element of doubt.
    Also, the actors who played the two Air Force officers were too squeaky-clean, polite and inoffensive, as if they were told to bust a gut to make the AF look good.
    There were still a few epis floating around on youtube last time I looked like this one-

      Speaking of asteroids...

      https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/techn...cid=spartandhp

      By the way, this is the stupidest poll I have seen on this forum in nine years.

      Did any of you actually see the interview on CNN? Or do you just rely on Fox, Breitbart and other far right 'news' agencies.?

      Incredible.

      The comment on CNN was not the issue or main subject of the discussion. It was a comment, with an illustration, made at the end. The subject of the discussion was the shut down and the asteroid they were discussing was not the current one.
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          Did you read anything? From your link:
          And while NASA calls the rocky mass known as 2002 AJ129 a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid," fear not: It's not slated to crash into Earth.

          "We have been tracking this asteroid for over 14 years and know its orbit very accurately," Paul Chodas, manager of the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, said in a statement.

          "Our calculations indicate that asteroid 2002 AJ129 has no chance — zero — of colliding with Earth on Feb. 4 or any time over the next 100 years."

          So what makes the asteroid "potentially hazardous"? NASA uses a preset criteria to define such bodies. Any that come within 4,650,000 miles of Earth and measure more than 500 feet in diameter become categorized as "Potentially Hazardous Asteroids."

          2002 AJ129 is the same asteroid the CNN re****s were babbling about.

          CNN (rhymes with petard)...
          FOREMAN: “Meanwhile many services would be stopped or delayed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would back down its flu tracking program even as the nation faces the worst outbreak in years. Some senior nutrition programs would be paused. 200,000 passport applications went unprocessed in 1995. Congress funds much of the scientific research done in this country. In 2013, that meant some experiments went on hold in 2013 and suffered costly losses of data. In space, that same year, for more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids. A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th.

          Did the CNN (rhymes with petard) think that the asteroid might suddenly change course because the government shutdown? Or is he just a total fracking (rhymes with petard) suffering from terminal TDS?

          The Chucky Schmucky Schumer Shutdown amounted to a long weekend, yet it caused the TDS world to freak out...
          Scientists in the United States are bracing for impact after lawmakers in Congress failed to agree on a plan to fund the government, triggering its indefinite shutdown on 20 January.

          [...]

          But worst of all, many researchers say, there is no clear sign when the shutdown will end.

          […]

          Nature


          Science survived all 19 funding gaps and 8 shutdowns from 1976-2013... but, but, but, TRUMP!!!!

              TOM FOREMAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Roughly 1.9 million government workers would be considered essential and stay on the job.

              Air traffic controllers, security officers, food inspectors, prison guards, Social Security checks would go out. The post office would be open. But

              at a steep price to many workers.

              be patrolled. They will not get paid.

              FOREMAN: Meanwhile many services would be stopped or delayed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would back down its flu tracking program

              even as the nation faces the worst outbreak in years. Some senior nutrition programs would be paused. Two hundred thousand passport

              CNN Anchor Wonders To Bill Nye: Is A Near-Earth Asteroid The Effect Of Global Warming?
              (No, it isn't. No.)
              By Colin Lecher February 11, 2013

              A huge storm lashed the Northeast this weekend, which meant we got to see news anchors talk about global warming for half a news cycle. (Yay.) But that also led to an awkward moment when CNN anchor Deb Feyerick tried to segue into talking about a near-Earth asteroid that's expected to fly relatively close to Earth later this week by asking: "What's coming our way? Is this the effect of, perhaps, global warming? Or is this just some meteoric occasion?"
