It Came From Outer Space

And Did Not Want Our Women

One year after a meteor sliced through our atmosphere over Chelyabinsk, Russia and exploded, we escaped being hit by yet another really big piece of primordial space rock. This asteroid measured roughly 885 feet wide (nearly the length of three football fields) and raced past us at about 27,000 mph.

The good people at SpaceWeather.com reported on it, and other Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (or, PHA's), giving us all food for thought.
