Should we be funding some space defence?
Nearby asteroid found orbiting sun backwards - space - 01 May 2009 - New Scientist
Is it orbiting backwards around the sun or has Michael Jackson taught it the moon walk?It could be that we are familiar with this object but it was previously on a different trajectory. Since it's in retrograde its orbit may be more frequently effected by the gravity of the planets as it passes.
Oh, don't you know it.I imagine your kids are used to rolling their eyes and groaning....that was awful!!
