News Headline: “Killer bus-sized asteroid flies dangerously close past Earth.”
But that was almost a year ago.
And only 16 killer bus-sized asteroids have been discovered since then, just as they were passing between Earth and the moon.
Which isn’t to mention Asteroid 2015 HD1, which was discovered last week as it passed lower than the altitudes of some man-made satellites.
Give or take.
Keep in mind that the lifetime odds of being killed by an asteroid impact are only 1 in 700,000–about the same as a cow giving birth to quadruplet calves.
And the quadruplet calves born last month to a Texas farmer’s cow last are doing fine.
The calves are named Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Moo.
