    I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post something from FB (so Mods, please delete if I’m breaking rules), but given all the ridiculous rumors that are all over the internet about the C8 and production issues, this just cracked me up as one of the funniest things I’ve seen posted yet! I wanted to share it with everyone.

      Neil deGrasse Tyson says asteroid could hit day before election

      Biba Adams
      TheGrioOctober 19, 2020A fridge-sized space-rock is headed our way, he tweeted, one that ‘may buzz-cut Earth on Nov 2.’

      Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson posted a picture of an asteroid approaching Earth saying that it could strike the planet before the election on Nov. 3.

      “Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 40,000 km/hr,” he wrote in a tweet Saturday. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov 2, the day before the Presidential Election.”

      It’s not big enough to cause harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it won’t be the fault of the Universe.

      He noted that the asteroid is “not big enough to cause harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it won’t be the fault of the Universe.”


      Despite the warning, NASA has previously confirmed that the asteroid has a less than 1% chance of actually striking the Earth.

      In a reply to Tyson’s tweet, a user asked him: “Do we have a plan if a larger asteroid was on a path to strike Earth?”

      “Nope, ” he replied. “Actually, we do have plans, but none of them are funded.”

              A big asteroid would "impact" (pun intended) demand as well as supply. Many people would see their orders cancelled when they no longer responded to e-mails.
