Sensationalist Press to be destroyed by killer asteroid.

17/08/19

Just as I was carrying out a search for some sizeable asteroids coming within viewing distance over the next few years I noticed lots of click bait on google about ‘killer asteroids heading our way’, some of the articles quoting scientists out of context coupled with units of measurement most people would not understand would lead many people to believe that mass extinctions by asteroids will commence in the year 2027 with a series of hits from space rocks. How about we gather all the sensationalist press, squeeze them all into a tin can and send them on a deadly collision course with one of these asteroids.
