Charges of corruption leveled against three state senators brought a rare bit of bad news to a party that has come to thoroughly dominate politics in that state.

There is a huge range of asteroid sizes, so the next time someone asks you "what is the chance of an asteroid hitting Earth?"  tell them it depends on what size.  
 
"The Asteroid Threat: Visualized": Just in time for the Chelyabinsk anniversary, check out this great infographic from Popular Mechanics. And keep supporting your local privately funded infrared deep space telescope mission (ie., us)!

Thanks for your support Ron!  Folks like us who have been lucky enough to see the Earth from space know how important (and achievable) Sentinel is.  
 
If the dinosaurs had a space program (and an opposable thumb) they'd still be here. Help defend the planet from hurling space rocks. Please consider supporting +B612 Foundation's Sentinel Mission.

What's your favorite aviation book?  

Mine are 
"Fate is the Hunter" by Ernest Gann,  "West With the Night" by Beryl Markham, "Wind, Sand, Sea and Stars" by Antoine St-Exupery, and for good measure I'll throw in a space book too: "Carrying the Fire" by Michael Collins.  

If you haven't read any of these, go lock yourself in a room with them and spend an enjoyable couple of days being transported along with these amazing author/pilots.
