Heads up NASA

November 11, 2009

Apparently NASA failed to notice that we nearly got wiped out by a blasted asteroid:

Although no one noticed at the time, the Earth was almost hit by an asteroid last Friday.

The previously undiscovered asteroid came within 8,700 miles of Earth but astronomers noticed it only 15 hours before it made its closest approach.

Hey, shake it off NASA — we know you are busy with bigger things like shooting the moon with missles and irradiating monkeys, you can’t be distracted by Kamikaze asteroids.

    But the town has no need to be nervous.

    I read about that, the asteroid was very small, the type that burns up in our atmosphere all the time, nothing to worry about…

    I’m more interested in the upcoming close encounter with Apophis (2029). I hope its as small as possible, if not, then we’d better start thinking about rehabilitating Mars and move there…
