We all know what science does for us on a daily basis. Everything that we use came from the minds of people who fervently want to understand the universe around them.
So, it’s pretty amazing when a group of scientists have already gotten busy researching the data to find the origins of the Chelyabinsk meteor that hit Russia on February 15, 2013. I just read this BBC article linking to the research completed by Jorge Zuluaga and Ignacio Ferrin. They’ve discovered that it is part of a known class of Apollo asteroids and have provided a path it took around our solar system.
Needless to say, it’s amazing to think that the tools we’ve created are capable of understanding such complex actions that go on in our universe. Science tracks not only our history on our planet, but the entire history of the universe around us so that we can better understand our place within.
Today would be a great day to go out and see what else science does for you. Maybe you’ll discover the next budding scientist hard at work on a new discovery that will change life as we know it. It happens…everyday.
