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
- 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?
- Isn’t this like saying your flight from Milwaukee to Appleton, Wisconsin is expected to miss Hong Kong?
- 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.)
