Asteroid fly-by

Another asteroid is whizzing by earth this week. It was only discovered on Saturday, according to Discover Magazine’s website. It’s the size of an SUV and will miss earth by 28,000 miles.

The comments section of the post, filled with wonderful nerdiness, calculates that the asteroid’s chances of hitting Earth at some point are on the order of eight magnitudes less than this.
