The following url will whisk you away to a forum page with an embedded link of a rather nifty asteroid strike simulation. (The reason I'm linking to the link rather than embedding the video myself is that the forum page has a translation of the original Japanese narration which once accompanied the video but has since been removed).

A three minute excerpt of Discovery Channel footage on current ideas about how we might avoid  a future asteroid strike. (Alas, you have to sit through an annoying thirty-second advert at the beginning.)

Not funny, just a couple of fabulous videos of Wednesday's solar eclipse over Asia. If you haven't seen these videos I urge you to watch them as some of the pictures are amazing.


No English commentary, just footage of the eclipse as seen in several different Asian countries:

And this one comes from the Chinese National Observatory.
