asteroids have visited earth more often

Asteroids may have struck the Earth more often than we've realized until now. Scientists are developing a system to detect such rude visitors.

We had a couple of blasts here in Alabama. One in Nov. (11?) 1986, the other Dec 3 1999 IIRC. Tagliaferri reported the folks behind the DMSP didn't want to cooperate with meteor experts any more. I suppose this has changed.

On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
