Asteroid Near-Miss

Asteroid Near-Miss

Asteroid TU-24 (pictured in a low-res. image from NASA) passed us by(1) on Tuesday at around 1.4 times the moon's distance from Earth. First hour guest David Sereda (Link 1(2), Link 2(3)) said that according to his contact at Lockheed, we may have sent a craft to divert the orbit of TU-24. Recent fireballs seen in the skies could have been fragments from the asteroid, Sereda suggested.He also referenced a Rand Corp. report Astronomical Odds (PDF file), which indicates that 30% of the public wouldn't want to know if an asteroid impact was imminent.
