An asteroid hit earth yesterday. Actually, it mostly broke up as it entered the atmosphere so there was nothing very Hollywoodish about it, but it was notable because it was a decent size – around 2-5m – but more significantly, it was the first earth-impacting rock to have been tracked before it hit us. It was discovered about a day in advance of the impact.
This story, in comparison, was discovered by me about a day after it happened. But no doubt, with a comparable rate of progress, I’ll soon be able to bring you news stories before they actually occur.
