    Wild, wild drug. Very dangerous for kids though.

    Amazing... I’m reminded how small we are even while I fly.

    Already felt beyond small and insignificant in the universe a long time ago. This is just a reminder.

    I get a kick out of how the article says there’s a 1 in 2700 chance the asteroid will hit earth...ah no.
    It will either hit earth (1 to 1 chance) or miss (1 to infinity chance).
    It’s more like a 1 in 2700 chance we can predict which will happen.
