The Earth has been battered quite significantly over its time. It's also why NASA has spent real money on tracking celestial bodies as well as figuring out how to stop a potential extinction. We know the Dinosaurs got wiped out by one. We know that large areas in the past have been devastated. I believe there's a place in Virginia (Tennessee?) where a mountain range pass exists because a meteor hit it with massive force. Basically carved out an entire passage.

    Scary stuff. Enough so that it's actually a viable space weapon.
    Floating around there in space is kind of like playing Russian roulette.

    This is probably the biggest news story of the year but it is being treated as a funny matter by the media. The Harlem Shake is getting more media attention.

    Pres Obama should put sanctions on space for their meteor program.

    Pretty much. At least on Earth we have the atmosphere to prevent small items from hitting us at the surface. Up there in space, a single piece of sand can do serious damage. Many of them are flying around at truly immense speeds. A grain of sand going 6,000 mph can really mess your day up.

    Why won't Congress outlaw meteors hitting the USA?

    Didn't Hillary say it was due to Obama.....and that the Rivers would be bountiful, the Sun would shine, and that the Oceans would Rise?
