space is so cool but so fuckin scary. we’re just a floating rock and there’s so much…. “out there” that could make me cease to exist at any given moment
I was thinking about this the other day, what if I’m the nigga that’s just pumping his gas when the big meteor hits, it’d be such an inglorious way to go out.
Realistically though, we have enough warning systems in place that we’d most likely all know we were doomed for several days in advance, and it would be chaos.
The size of the rock determine the amount of time we have to say our prayers. Large earth killers are easier to track, but smaller ones are harder because they smaller and harder to see.
Even though they’re smaller, they can still wipe out a large area, like the one that smashed up that town in Russia.
