Re: To further calms the nerves
Yes but that little turdlette, came in high and on an almost "just miss" trajectory.
Had there been a SMALL difference in time and location, it may well have come down more or less vertically, onto a big city etc...
THEN the truly hysterical shit would have hit the fan.
LOTS of dead, LOTS of damage.
And to think it was only a teeny little rock.....
The other one that was the near miss, only a day or two earlier.. was also very small rock... but as small as it was, it was also way bigger - than the one that went BANG in the upper atmosphere...
And to think, there are squillions of them... in the city destroying size..
Probably far fewer in the continent destroying size.
And perhaps even less in the eradication of all life on earth size.
But they are still bobbing around in space, like blow flies in a huge jar.
Statistically, mathematically, eventually, all sorts in all sizes, are going to hit again, - eventually.
