NASA's Somewhat Inconsistent Approach to Comet Elenin

Comet Elenin Poses No Threat to Earth, NASA

"Often, comets are portrayed as harbingers of gloom and doom in movies and on television, but most pose no threat to Earth. Comet Elenin, the latest comet to visit our inner solar system, is no exception. Elenin will pass about 22 million miles (35 million kilometers) from Earth during its closest approach on Oct. 16, 2011."

Keith's note: But if you visit you will see that NASA allows people to openly engage in conspiracy mongering on a page - including claims that the agency has been covering up the real story behind comet Elenin. Go figure.
