It is stories like this that keep me saying that we need to get the heck off this rock asap.  We walked on the moon in 1969 and then proceeded to take a 50 year vacation that we can’t afford.  Luckily it appears that 2020 will mark the US return to manned space flight.  About damn time.

  2. We don’t tend to think about frequency on time scales like this. We should. This is our most vulnerable time as a civilization, where we are highly advanced,, but still limited to one place in the universe. Even if a hard hit didn’t wipe us out, it would surely set civilization back hundreds if not thousands of years.
