Asteroids and Meteors, Oh My!

I support the space program, and I always have for many reasons.  The dangers posed by asteroids and other cosmic objects are as good a reason as any to consider the future of the space program and how dependent we are on this planet of ours.  

People complain that the space program is a waste of money.  I say that if we want to ensure the continuation of our species, this isn't an issue we can afford to ignore.  We can't afford not to invest time, money, and intellect in space.


  1. Those videos are insane! I was glued to screen when I heard about the meteorite strike. It's crazy that it blew out the windows of buildings miles away!

  2. A nuclear blast! Tyson is one of my favorite speakers and he always explains thing so well.
