    Some folks are worried about it hitting the earth, but NASA has only been talking about it possibly colliding with Mars.
    Right now, there's a 1 in 10,000 chance that the asteroid will hit Mars.

    Very interesting.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Glad you clarified that.

    It would be pretty cool to see what would happen.

    if in the wrong mood I might say that I hoped that it hit earth- I really don't hope that it does though- that would kind of suck- I want to live until I'm at least 50!

    if we could see the aurora borealis at mid latitudes bc of it though- THAT would be awesome!

    That rock isn't a global killer, even if it hit Earth.

    I don't understand what the point of the last part was, where they showed the orbit of Earth with the asteroid in vector graphics. The intro to it said "Ready for the impossible?" and I expected some kind of cataclysm. Then I just saw little graphics of the asteroid in our neighborhood. Am I missing something?
