DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

As it turns out, a lot of asteroids are doubles or lose but touching close doubles like dumbbells. Not that unusual.

It means everything in space has gravity.

Everything.

Brilliant headline, subby.

You said Asteroid twice

It means somebody shot a big one and it split into two.
And the UFO is worth 1000 points

"they were well positioned in the autumn sky and were scientific paradoxes"

Scientific paradoxes? What does it mean?

Ishkur: It means everything in space has gravity.

Everything.


False.

Every particle with mass has gravity. But lots of things in space are massless. Photons, neutrinos, underwear models, etc.

I thought this was going to be a whatdoesitmean link. Disappointing.

Well, sure, if you want to be pedantic about it. But we're not talking about quanta-level objects, we're talking about asteroid-level objects.

Neutrinos have mass. The 2002 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the solar neutrino problem.

I have a problem with "a binary asteroid" as the way to referr to these things.   my brain just cant take it...  there are two of them!  they are not a asteroid...   We dont call 2 stars orbiting eachother a binary star, no, we call them a binary star system...   can we just like add an s to the end please?  PLEASE?  binary asteroids!

When one of the two asteroids obstructed the telescope's view of its cohort, the result was an asteroid eclipse - and a sharp dip in the light curve.

I know this is the internet and anyone can be a journalist, but why is this the last sentence? It was like the article just suddenly stopped.

+1.  Would read again.

Last Man on Earth: Brilliant headline, subby.


Whoops.  Meant to agree with this comment.  Although the thing about saying asteroids twice was ok too.  I guess.

Do a Google maps view of Lac a Eau Claire in Canada near he eastern edge of Hudson's Bay.  The geologists theorized that the twin lakes were the result of a binary asteroid hit.

It's gonna hit Earf!

GORF was better than both.
