Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

December 07, 2005

Numbers Game

The Gonad reports on a 390 metre wide (how long?) asteroid that has a 1 in 5,500 chance of hitting us in 31 years.

Apparently it will pass close in 2029, at which time the scientists (if they haven't discovered something else that will secure them government funding) will know whether it will hit in 2036.

Maybe they should just let it hit? Because the dust thrown up will block out the sun and reduce the threat of global warming, and then everyone will be happy. So... no funding for this, and no funding for global warming research, everybody wins.

  • Wonder what odds Labrokes will give us on whether this will be turned into a programme for Horizon before the end of the year.
