    We're Doooooooomed!!! Well not really.



    • NASA says asteroid that's 2.7 miles wide will make 'relatively close encounter'
    • Dubbed ‘Florence,’ the space rock will pass 4.4 million miles from our planet
    • This is the closest an object this large has come since NASA began NEO program
    • It hasn't come this close since 1890, and won't be this close again until 2,500

    May the FORCE be with you!

    Everything smashes into everything-else eventually.

    Still 16 times farther out than Lunar orbit, though. I'll worry about collisions when the object gets inside that quarter-million mile radius.

    Why don't you take the Death Star and destroy it?
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
