### Re: ZetaTalk and Spaceguard UK

```Ms Lieder,

Having read your responses, I am afraid that I will need some more
convincing answers before I publish anything in an internationally
distributed journal.  For example:

> Deflection requires pushing it OUTSIDE of the current area it is in,

Agreed

Motion is constant unless a force acts to change it, so NEOs are trucking
along on their current trajectories simply because they were pointed in that
direction at some time in the past.

> It's in an orbit, and STAYING there, for dozens of reasons, and would return

Agreed, though "removed from the area" is a very vague term.  Once an orbit
has been changed it remains changed unless something else applies a force to
change it again. See above.

No.  That's obvious.

See above.

Based on what evidence?  Common sense and observation dictate that Newton's
Laws of Motion have stood the test of time, and no macro-experiment has yet
disproved them.  I'm afraid that your statement requires rigorous proof
before it becomes credible.

Did it?  I would be grateful for references.

Momentum is a function of mass and velocity, the latter being produced by a
force - in this case, gravity.

Only if another force is applied.  See above.

> Mankind's deflection will be a momentary DELAY, not a redirection.

A "delay" can only be produced by applying a force in a direction opposite
to the velocity.  There is, therefore, no reason why a similar force cannot
be applied in a different direction adding a velocity vector at an angle to
the original - a deflection.

This is sadly convenient, for without evidence one could claim anything,
attracting only the gullible.  But surely the object would also have been
detected elsewhere if it is as obvious as you indicate?  With only a maximum
of 18 months to close approach it should be clearly visible - even small
comets are visible to amateurs at thi time to perihelion.

Binary system?  Surely we are not invoking the old "Nemesis" hypothesis?

The NEA population evolves through well understood mechanisms that do not
involve a rogue planet, so I am unsure about the results to which you refer.

It always has done, it's a chaotic mechanism.

The gravitational attraction between two bodies is calculated using the
standard gravitational formula.  Compositions are irrelevant, only mass.

Sorry - this is meaningless.  At the surface of the Earth?  I fail to see
the thrust of your argument here.

Knowing the people at NASA and JPL I think that you are barking up the wrong
tree here!  In fact, if you knew these individuals, you would know that they
would find this sort of thing laughable!
