"Proving that you don't need Google's billions or the BBC weather centre's resources, the four Spanish students managed to send a camera-operated weather balloon into the stratosphere.

Taking atmospheric readings and photographs 20 miles above the ground, the Meteotek team of IES La Bisbal school in Catalonia completed their incredible experiment at the end of February this year"

It's so worth it dude! I printed them off on photo paper and laminated them (so I can put them in the dishwasher periodically).

I'd hit is so hard... Well, let's just say SpaceGuard would pick me up eight years in advance. Nations would be evacuated, and underground shelters would be built. Movies would be made about it, and scientists would theorize and debate about the nuances of it - whether the damage would be limited or extensive.

I love it when individuals manage to do things that the government is blowing millions if not billions of dollars on. To be fair, the government doing it first allows people to see what needs to be done, and how it can be improved on, but it always seems to require those plucky few to actually improve on it. Governments seem fine with stagnating.
