A tiny asteroid discovered just hours ago at an Arizona observatory will enter Earth's atmosphere harmlessly at approximately 10:46 p.m. Eastern time tonight (2:46 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time). There is no danger to people or property since the asteroid will not reach the ground. It is between 3 and 15 feet (1-5 m) in diameter and will burn up in the upper atmosphere, well above aircraft heights. A brilliant fireball will be visible as a result. [...]
Wow.. I wonder if that $700 billion spent on the bailout wouldn't have been better spent on deep space killer asteroid detection?
Nah... They're not a threat. Not really.
PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE DINOSAUR FOSSILS.
