Asteroid Expect To Miss Earth By 300,000 Miles On Halloween

CNN reports that an Asteroid is expected to miss earth by 300,000 miles on Halloween, which is “slightly farther away than the moon.”

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

  1. So basically this asteroid is not even going to be as close to earth as the moon? How is this a news story again? Because people like reading sensationalist apocalyptic stories?
  2. Isn’t this like saying your flight from Milwaukee to Appleton, Wisconsin is expected to miss Hong Kong?
  3. What kind of Halloween Costume will this asteroid be wearing? (We hope that it won’t be dressed as an over-sized asteroid with a 300,000 mile diameter.)
