We have our first list of the Top Ten Reasons Why We're Not Scared of a Meteor Strike sent to us by the Supernovas (Donovan, Jeff, Robert and Taylor) of Ms. Carter's classroom, Pueblo Elementary, Scottsdale, Arizona.

You will find it at

Check it out. How does your list compare? Anyone make a list of 10 reasons why we SHOULD be scared? (I think there are some nervous scientists who would have some things on such a list.)

Send me your lists, comments, etc and I will share with the group.

Speaking of group we have a small but hopefully active group of participants. See for current list of registrants.

Also if you can send me a "letter of introduction" from your group and I will post it on the website and share it with the others. It will be nice if we got a chance to get to know each other a bit.

Today is Valentine's Day and it also is the anniversary of a famous rendezvous between a space craft and the asteroid Eros. Anyone want to share about this special event?

Best wishes,

PS Here's a cartoon you may like that has to do with the extinction of the dinosaurs.

I'm buying a t-shirt. :-)
