Celebrating the NEO Arrival
Interested member of the public (IMOP) - There's a NEO coming!
Outdoor Look Blogger (OLB) - A what?
IMOP - A NEO!
OLB – What some new and exotic type of waterproof lining? I know, you’ve been shopping our amazing range of waterproof boots again haven’t you?
IMOP – No, well not that I don’t always like checking out your comprehensive and reasonably priced range of waterproof boots but the NEO’s nearly here!
OLB – The rogue hacker and hero from the Matrix? It looks as if your confusing Hollywood with reality again
IMOP – No NEO is an acronym for “Near Earth Object”
OLB – Nope, none the wiser. I’ll be honest you lost me with “accro” thingy unless thats the new Craghoppers Jacket?
IMOP – Sigh! OK with thanks due to wikipedia “A near-Earth object (NEO) is a Solar System object whose orbit brings it into proximity with the Earth. They include a few thousand near-Earth asteroids (NEAs), near-Earth comets, a number of solar-orbiting spacecraft, and meteoroids large enough to be tracked in space before striking the Earth.”
In this instance there’s a swimming pool sized rock that’s coming within 17,000 miles of the earth this evening.
OLB – 17,000 miles that’s miles and miles away. Further than the sun anyway
IMOP – Actually Australia’s only 12,000 miles away, it’s coming quite close to us, closer than many earth orbiting satellites.
OLB – Well it’s not very big
IMOP – Big enough to destroy a city
OLB – We are all doomed!
IMOP – Apparently it’s going to miss
OLB – Well that’s OK then, meanwhile what about these waterproof boots. Ideal wear in the event of a NEO based disaster or just great for walking when it’s a bit wet. They look great too and you won’t need a telescope to see them.
IMOP – Look this is really exciting………… Mind you some of these boots do look very good; maybe I should just have a little look around. Waterproof you say?
OLB – Guaranteed. Though not in the event of being hit by a NEO!
