What is the free press there for? To challenge, to illuminate, to educate, all three? If so, please will someone tell the Daily Mail. In the Science and Tech section of today's paper is this headline: "Astronomers spot "potentially hazardous" asteroid just one month before it is due to pass close to Earth"
Suffice to say that the poor maligned asteroid is no where near us; "potentially hazardous" seems to mean before the universe ends. Even if the Mail is way off in terms of scientific accuracy, it's spot on scaring the shite out of its gullible readers. Read their money page and it's full of people complaining that this nice man in Nigeria promised to send them a billion pounds of stolen government funds if only they'd hand over their bank details.
