    I’ll go with the first calculation. The guys in question who first released their data were probably pretty scrupulous with their calculations before releasing that kind of announcement. While chances are 1-60 I am interested in hearing the new calculation after the Dec. 26 Indo earthquake that actually may have altered with rotation calculations and tilt. NASA’s later release is well, very wordy and safe with no detail. And I agree with that philosophy in this circumstance because humanity can’t comprehend its impact both physically and mentally.
