A NASA spacecraft has found evidence of ancient rivers. On an asteroid. Specifically, Bennu. And like, holy shit. Right?
Asteroid Bennu is exploding rocks out into space and astronomers don’t know why. The Cosmos continues to confound!
Asteroid Bennu more active than a motherfucker. Astronomers have spotted the asteroid exploding rockers out into space, and they’re stumped. Goddamn, the Cosmos is so damn interesting.
Hygiea was an asteroid! However, it may actually be the smallest dwarf planet in the solar system! The finding comes courtesy of the European Southern Observatory.
NASA is aiming to do some dope shit in the 2020s. Expecting to launch spacecraft to study Jupiter’s asteroids, and also another one made of metal. Sounds dope! I’m, uh, just not optimistic about us/them making it until then.
Hey, yo. Yo, hey! You can doubt the efficacy of the United Nations, but at least they’re fucking trying. The Nations United have formed an asteroid-monitoring group that is ready to seriously fucking laserize (I made both the method and word up) any errant space rocks. Sorry you hunks of shit, you’re not going to doom us. Well uh, not without a good try.
Did you know about the April Fools Day asteroid? I sure as fuck didn’t. I didn’t know about it when it was considered no big fucking deal, and I doubly didn’t know about it yesterday when it passed far closer than anticipated.
