Asteroid Misses Earth By Inches...Spotted Only Monday

That's right, an asteroid discovered only this Monday will whiz past only 85,000 km away or so this morning.

We didn't see it coming.

It didn't hit - this time. But had it been slightly closer and slightly larger, we would have had sufficient time only to rethink our transgressions. Nothing more.

I reiterate and I can not say this in a more serious or forthright manner: If you do not support the space program and Near Earth Asteroid intervention, please select another phylum to inhabit. Mine does not need you.
