Space Matters – especially if it hits your head

This story about the meteor strike in Indonesia is pretty interesting because it appears to have caught everyone by surprise – astronomers, military etc. despite being the largest object to hit earth in a number of years.

Our relationship to the skies above – our understanding, how we explore it, how we care for it and how much we respect it will be perhaps the most important part of our future. Based on our track record with our own planet, we obviously have some improving to do since our self-absorbtion with matters trivial and short-term keep us in the dark about the really big stuff.
