Live stream of mountain sized asteroid passing earth

26 January 2015 - 02:03 PM

 

A mountain-size asteroid will zoom past Earth Monday (Jan. 26), marking the closest pass by such a large space rock until 2027.

 

Asteroid 2004 BL86, which is about 1,800 feet (550 meters) wide, will come within 745,000 miles (1.2 million kilometers) of our planet Monday — about three times the distance between Earth and the moon. While this flyby poses no threat to Earth, it does present a rare opportunity to get a good look at a near-Earth asteroid, NASA officials say.

Went to the movies last night and saw this trailer.

 

Besides the fact that Blomkamp is a very competent Sci Fi director Im genuinely excited to see Yolandi and Ninja (Die Antwoord) on the screen.  Something tells me that they are going to prove to have above average acting chops.

Maybe that Gettleman dude knows something about evaluating talent...


Barnwell's take on the game and the Panthers

The Carolina Panthers became the first team in NFC South history to repeat as division winners by blowing out the Falcons on Sunday, completing a stunning comeback from the bottom of the NFL barrel in the process. After the Panthers lost at home to the Falcons before their Week 12 bye to fall to 3-7-1, they had just a 7.6 percent chance of winning the NFC South. They came out of that bye and promptly lost by 18 points to the Vikings … and then won four straight by a combined 68 points to claim the division.

 

How did they do it? Well, on Sunday, they completed their transformation back into the 2013 Panthers by eating Matt Ryan’s lunch. In one of the most impressive performances by a pass rush I’ve seen all season, the Carolina front four simply destroyed the Falcons offensive line and took Atlanta’s playoff hopes down with them. Ryan came into Sunday’s game on a streak of 98 pass attempts without being sacked. The Panthers sacked Ryan six times, knocking him down on 12 occasions while forcing him into scrambles and pressuring him into the first of Carolina’s two pick-sixes.

 

 

Barnwell is always a good read
