I live in Pittsburgh. In Pittsburgh, the local TV media station is KDKA. Maybe you knew this, maybe you didn't. But that's not important. What's important is that there may be a meteor crashing into earth as you read this very thread........I think.

Ok, Ok, enough being melodramatic. (melodramatic means overly dramatic, or too dramadic. An example of a melodramatic person would be a drama queen).

As I, the great BLITERSETY, was finishing dinner, I heard 2 words: meteor and earth. Now, this was not said by my parents, and it appeared to be coming from the living room. There was a TV in the living room. That particular TV was tuned in to the local news station, KDKA.

Ever since I had read somthing in a Smithsonian Institute magazine about a meteor that would come in contact with earth in a few centuries, I was interested in the subject. So I immediately rushed into the room to see what they were talking about.

Unfortunately for yours truly, however, all I heard was somthing about a probe or something that collected dust from this meteor and will be down to earth with the samples in, oh...say 2 years.

So here I am wondering if anyone has any links or information on the subject and if so, what your opinion is on it. Personally, I'm not sure what to think, but I'd be more concerned about a dull pencil point during a test in math class at Finley Middle School if the dust sampls still aren't going to arrive for another 2 years....

The Stardust probe has begun gathering dust from the tail of the Wild 2 comet.

Thats true. I bought one for my wife last year as she is an expert in gemstones and hadn't got one.

Sorry to be so off-topic, but I must just say that's the funniest title I ever saw for a thread!

And please don't ever post text in pink like that, it's torture!! Why would anyone want to do that anyway?!?!

But seriously, I'm still not sure if I spelled approaching right...

And I threw that pink text thing in as a joke.

Yes, I know this. But those are always small and almost never get news coverage, so I figured since this one got on the news, it might be just mediocerly big, so that's what I posted.
