NASA better have it's calculations right, as a large asteroid that was only discovered recently will come so close to earth in February that it will pass between the earth and the point at which satellites are placed in geosynchronous orbit.  The NASA people act very certain that there is no risk of an impact, or that earth's gravity will unexpectedly suck the large asteroid in.  I wonder what the margin of error is in the scientist's math?


  1. WHat if the asteroid breaks in two and the broke off pice hits Earth? Enquiring minds want to know!

    1. Ha! Excellent question! One gets the Moon, the other devastates Earth. Maybe this is really what the Mayans were talking about all along.

  2. I'm thinkin' that as this thing is only 150' across I'll only need to run 75' in any direction and I'm golden!!
