Asteroids

I must admit, despite all of the family vacations we took out west over the years when I was a kid, to the best of my knowledge we never saw a crater. It’s actually only been since we got our family cabin that I think I really began to wonder about space and what is out there.

So I found this article quite interesting about asteroids and the apparent increased frequency of them, according to this article entitled “We are living in an era of high frequency asteroid strikes” by Bryan Nelson over at Mother Nature Network.

Sort of reminds me, in a strange sort of way, how we’re way past the average time between an eruptions at Yellowstone National Park. Kind of scary when you think about it.

Sincerely-
