For sure I hope everyone reads that Cosmiclog web page, if not a possible disaster to Earth, it is certainly a science project for the whole family.
The web page in that link above has links to other resources such as live telescope images, on-line live chat related to the science of this and other asteroids. It's actually a bigger event than one would believe if they didn't at least click that link above to learn that even the Whitehouse in Washington D.C. is excited about it.
Mention is also made in that article that we want to land on an asteroid and explore it. Imagine parking on one of those things and taking a free ride around the universe, wondering where would it take us?
The purpose of this thread is not create panic, but to get our members interested in what is possibly out there and the fact that the cosmos can tell us a lot about ourselves.
E.T. call home? Some day we may actually learn we are not the only intelligent beings in the universe and E.T. and close encounter of the third kind may someday be a reality.
Have fun everyone with your exploration of outer space and be sure to invite the cat and dog to your space peering activities.
