I just had this picture in my head of it working like a pool table. They knock them, they get re directed into others. one hits another and the next one, until the last one comes straight at Earth. I have that kind of luck.

Make sure you have the sappiest Aerosmith song in your collection playing in the background when you do the search.

It was good, but I could've used some audio effects. Watch it again while listening to the video below.

I too do not often use The Google. (DDG for me, except for maps).  But you should take care to always refer to The Google with proper deference. Because whether or not you use it, The Google is always watching.

Not to really worry though. The Google is your friend. The Google is here to help.

So far there has been zero news about LICIACube which is the tiny satellite following the DART to record the impact.  Hopefully it didn't fail.

I was expecting something else.

*shrug* worked for me on FF. I did go to actual google.com first though. I've found in the past that their Easter eggs tend not to work if I do the search from FF's interface.

It worked in Chrome on my phone.

It should work on all major browsers that are even remotely up to date.  They're just applying a css transform:rotate() of 1 degree.  That said, it's applied by a script after the page load, so if you have javascript limited in any fashion it may not happen.

I think it's the first time NASA has celebrated a space probe crashing ;D

I think it's awesome really, because ordinarily Americans would not want to bother with a defense against meteors until an Everest-sized bolide was 5 miles over New York.

Saw it, wanted to see it again. Browser-relaod. Browser crashed. Nope again google.

Orbital dynamics, I thot, said that bodies tend to return to a round orbit, even when bashed by other bodies... Sorta like a mosh pit. This asteroid is likely to come around and some day be the one that destroys us.

Didn't NASA collide with an asteroid about 10 years ago?  As I recall, they released a copper projectile from a mother ship and then analyzed the ejecta.

Nice one Goog.

That was Japan's JAXA.
