A huge asteroid speeding through space at 30,000 miles per hour was projected to come so close to Earth on Tuesday that it would at one point travel inside the moon's orbit.
This is the closest encounter of its kind in more than 30 years, and while scientists say we have nothing to worry about, astronomers and stargazers prepared for a pretty exciting night.

For Nick Brandt, the animals are far more than subjects of his camera. The UK photographer has dedicated his life to depicting Africa's animals and nature. Through his craft he grants us an intimate glance into the private world of these gentle beasts. It began in 1995 when Brandt was directing a music video for Michael Jackson in Tanzania, that he fell in love with the country's flora and fauna.

When did it happen? How? A small gathering in Zuccotti Park? Ten sleeping bags? Or was it Cairo? A different language. Same problem. Even worse. Was it the 2008 Crash? Or the hope of Obama, dashed as the Geithners and Summers swept in after the swearing in? Or was it Reagan sworn in, followed by his parade of massive deregulations, buttressed by Clinton, then Bush, while CEOs salaries skyrocketed and war was (more or less) declared wherever there was oil? And greed became our religion, presided over by a bought and paid-for Congress, White House, Media?

The statement at issue:I would instruct the national security officials in a Gingrich administration to ignore the recent decisions of the Supreme Court on national security matters, and I would interpose the presidency in saying, as the commander in chief, we will not enforce this. And by the way, for our liberal friends, the source of that is Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In 1942 a group of German saboteurs were landed in Florida and Long Island. They were all picked up within two weeks.
