The link doesn't work well because DS is seeing two symbols together and turns it into a smiley. So I broke down the link. Just copy and paste the whole thing in your toolbar, put it all together with the www that goes with youtube. Thanks! </b>
It's beautiful video albeit slightly scary.
One comment in there caught my eye: Not likely to happen. This scenerio was more common billions of years ago</b>
So is this guy implying we're safe from this? Large meteors only roamed the galaxy millions of years ago? Hmmmm... don't think so. In the 90's there was a big scare when meteors bigger or the size of the Earth entered our Solar System and was heading straight for us. Know what saved us? Jupiter. It's gravitational pull had the meteors crash into the gas giant. We got lucky because if Jupiter had not been in the right orbit, we wouldn't be here right now.
So it could happen at any given time. Luckily, scientists and astronomers have come to the same conclusion: there is no threat for now.
