The folks at NASA say they are tracking some “space junk” that is expected to hit Earth on Sunday.

Space junk. The stock market has its worst month in a generation, and now we greet November with the prospect of somebody’s trash falling on our heads.


That’s just great. What’s next? A rain of frogs?

Actually, there’s not too much to worry about with this space junk. By the time it comes screaming into the atmosphere, it’ll burn up and break apart and fall to Earth like snowflakes — just like little hot metallic toxic manmade snowflakes from space.

Enjoy, but don’t hold out your tongue to catch a piece.
