Come join us at 3pm in the Northwest Building at the Harvard Campus (52 Oxford St, Cambridge, MA). We’re booked in Conference Room 169 and if you ask the guards in the front of the building they will let you know where to go. Or you can just follow the directions here.

Come and listen to the various (and true) ways in which the Earth may meet its end as we discuss Phil Plait’s Death from the Skies. Fortunately, the End Isn’t Near! (Now, who’s going to correct all those people with the signs?) Bring a snack if you want and come join us this afternoon.

Mary, that video is fantastic! When you described it, I thought it was the same as a picture I had seen previously on Bad Astronomy, where the asteroids were color-coded for when they were discovered, but it wasn’t dynamic like this. There’s over half a million of them by last year!

Of course what really matters isn’t how many they’ve found, but how many they haven’t found. Sleep well.

If you like the song, the artist is Trifonic.

I’ll try not to have nightmares about asteroids closing in on me! Ack! (Or little spider aliens)
