Update 2/15/13

Hello everyone.

I meant to post this earlier, but my internet was being spotty. I had physical therapy today, and I believe I am finally on the road to recovery. Thanks for all the well-wishes!

In case you haven't heard, two major events happened today. The first was that an asteroid passed over Earth less than 20,000 miles above the surface. That seems like a lot until you realize that the Moon is actually over 200,000 miles away from Earth. The second event is related to the first, and you have probably already heard about it. A meteorite fell to Earth in Russia, causing a crater and injuries to over 1200 people.

The first link talks about the relation between the two events (freakily, there apparently isn't any.) The next link discusses the Russian meteorite in detail, and even includes video of the freak incident.

Next up, this link is from Chuck. A few days ago, the Sierra Club held a civil disobedience action against the Keystone pipeline at the White House; their first in 120 years according to the second link.


To contact me, email Thanks.
