One of the biggest science stories of the day is that it has been discovered that 1998 QE2 is a binary asteroid - i.e., it has it's own little 'moon.' A lot of people are freaking themselves out about this, pulling out the Nibiru word and stuff, but it seems like it's not uncommon for these big asteroids to have little satellites. It will be making its closest pass tomorrow, so we'll see what the what pretty soon Smile

This is brilliant - I just saw this a few minutes ago and was going to post tomorrow.

I've always thought this was possible - now it looks like the evidence will support many people's suppositions over the years.

Thanks!

It's cool to see how much we DON'T know about what we think we know LOL - I'll see if I can find a live feed of this thing whizzing by tomorrow, I'm sure there will be at least a couple...

Indeed - we are making scientific breakthroughs at an exponencial rate over the last few years - what with particles that should effect NOTHING effecting something that should not be effected by ANYTHING!

Cool times!
