Talking Smack: The Asteroid Collision Quiz
Asteroids are like sharks. They're pretty common members of the solar system, but they rarely take a human life. So why do we tremble with fear every time astronomers spot one of these space rocks cruising near Earth? Because humans, for the most part, are fascinated with death and dying. We love car crashes, murder scenes and civilization-ending cataclysms. Now you can put that morbid curiosity to good use. Take this quiz on asteroid collisions and see if you have a knack for smack.
