Asteroid near Earth on Jan 29, 2008

I know this is not about rockets and/or robots, but it is pretty cool.

On January 29, 2008, Asteroid 2007 TU24 will pass by the Earth at just 1.4 lunar distances from the Earth.

Space Daily article:

Cool 3D Java simulation of orbits.
(Use the Forward, Pause, etc to turn the auto simulation on…)

The image above was captured from the simulation.
