News post – Catch-23 No. 920 Asteroid detection

Space is a big place so it’s not surprising that we don’t always see the rocks that nearly hit our planet. The asteroid that passed by us a few days ago – approximately half the distance from the Earth to the Moon – was the size of a 10-storey building. Not large enough to close the book on humankind but certainly large enough to wipe a city off the map.

Referencing Michael Bay’s meteor “masterpiece” Armageddon isn’t exactly topical (it will be 20 years old next year), but making fun of his films never seems like the wrong move. He even apologised for Armageddon a few years ago. When Michael Bay admits something is bad, that’s telling you something.
