NASA Map of Killer Asteroids

NASA has released its map of 1,400 killer asteroids—that is, asteroids that could possibly strike the Earth.

In reality, none of these are on a path to strike the Earth.  They pass somewhat close, and they would have to have their orbits disturbed to hit us. 

It’s actually kind of pretty.  It reminds me of the Spirograph designs I used to make as a child.

The ones that pass us by. Thankfully.

It is rather beautiful.

Spirograph was a lot of fun. Had one of those. Do they still make it?
