    I’m watching it live now, it appears pill-shaped.  Could this be a huge drug capsule being thrown across the galaxy into the waiting mouth of a giant flying spaghetti monster in space?

    And what will this giant beast do once it’s high?

     We’re all gonna die.

    The ACLU has produced a study showing that video surveillance will not reduce the risk of being killed by an asteroid.

    The “geosynchronous” orbit should have been labeled the “geostationary” orbit.  It’s indeed true that a geostationary orbit is also geosynchronous; however the reverse is not true.  There’s an infinite number of geosynchronous orbits, but only one of them is geostationary.  By extension, there’s an infinite number of geosynchronous orbits that intersect the trajectory of the
    DA14 asteroid.
