It is only when we are exterior to a problem that we can see a resolution. You might even say that we get enough space to observe things in their proper perspective. Though we each feel independent of others, we are actually dependent on them as an assurance to our future survival. Maybe it’s time we get some SPACE!
On Feb. 15, comet DA14 will come within 21,000 miles of earth. In cosmic terms; close enough to hear it whiz by. While not particularly large, at 150 odd feet, it could do considerable damage. Remember – a beach ball sized meteor could make a crater almost 20 feet deep and over 60 feet wide. There is no chance DA14 will collide with earth, at least not this time around.
Countless close calls populate our fragile existence. On April 13, 2029 Comet Apophis, at well over 500 feet; will come within a projected 19,400 miles of earth.

I wish more of us pondered the cosmos. Governed by nothing but science; physics is the universal God
