selected bits:
An asteroid expected to fly past Earth in 2029 will be visible to the naked eye, scientists projected Thursday.

It's a once-in-a-millennium event. And you may want to buy plane tickets now, as the flyby will be visible only from Europe, Africa and western Asia.

The 2029 event will be the closest brush by a good-sized asteroid known to occur. The rock will pass Earth inside the orbits of some satellites. No other asteroid has ever been clearly visible to the unaided eye.


So, a once in a gazillion years event. Witness an asteriod fly by.


This article is for the astro-geeks. ;)

Slightly off calculations and I can cheer on the asteroid as it smashes in to Europe.

If you start now, you could send a rocket up to make it crash into Europe for pretty cheap, Venom.

Do you have a rocket I can borrow?

Sorry, sure don't. But I bet the Air Force does. It's easy to get in to most Air Force bases. Just grab a janitor uniform, and go in the servants gate...

Come on. Like NASA is doing anything with their rockets these days. All you guys do now is coordinate for other space agencies that don't have the fancy comm gear you guys have.

We are doing something with our rockets! We are getting ready to shoot them up to the Shuttle, and have the astronauts climb in them if the next Shuttle gets a hole in it.
