Beware of asteroids

Mission: STS-41-B Film Type: 70mm Title: Views...Image of something sort of jetpack-like via Wikipedia

Jewish date:  29 ’Elul 5770 (Parashath Ha’azinu).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  International Literacy Day, World Rabies Day.

Worthy cause of the day:  “Protect us from toxic coal ash”.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is “Asteroid Discovery From 1980 − 2010”:

This should give some idea how much in the way of rocks there are flying around the inner Solar system.  If you feel worried about the prospects of collision, do note that the size of objects are not shown to scale.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
