Andromeda: Big meteor that fell from the sky but didn't do anything? Meh, call me when windows shatter again.Listen guys, tens of thousands of meteorites that are >10 grams hit the Earth every day. Just because you didn't stop to think about it doesn't mean this is a new thing, just usually they fall over unpopulated areas like the ocean (and in normal circumstances no one would bother to search Cuban Twitter feeds for meteorite reports- this one happened before the Russia one per the article).Don't get me wrong, I'm glad many people are learning about the dangers today and becoming more aware, but we do get hit by a lot of space rocks./astronomer

spidermilk: IRQ12: beautifulbob: Thank God this didn't happen 30 years ago. No way the nukes would have stayed on the launching pads.Wow, that's a really good point. Scary when you think about how close we were to a completely different world back then.On the news this morning Neil DeGrasse Tyson said that something like this did happen like something-ish years ago and at first WAS interpreted as a nuke until they could prove that it was an asteroid and that is what prevented nuclear war.Uh does anyone know what exactly he said because I clearly wasn't awake while I watched.
