sixty symbols: asteroids

there has been quite an excited buzz around the internet about the recent video showing asteroid discovery from 1980 to 2010. what you gain from watching is that there are LOTS of asteroids out there, which is "cool and mildly terrifying" as a friend so succinctly described it.

it just so happens that sixty symbols released a video describing asteroids today which describes, ironically, why individual asteroids are no longer given unique symbols.

Had to laugh at the 'Asteroids' reference at the end... I was thinking 'There Is A Moon In The Sky' by the B52's, because of the line about the Van Allen belt!!
