Moving Target

These guys must have really pissed off the big man upstairs:

New Delhi – A suspected meteorite killed two nomads and injured five others on Thursday in the northern Indian desert state of Rajasthan, a report said.

Police told the Press Trust of India news agency that the group of nomads were sitting in a field in Rajasthan’s Bundi district when an “unknown flying object”, thought to be a meteorite, hit the ground and exploded, leaving behind a crater.

How unlucky do you have to be? This reminds me of a Terry Pratchett quote from Small Gods:

Gods like to see an atheist around. Gives them something to aim at.

    So a meteor shower is god’s way of kicking sand in your face?

    Smite away, O Myopic One, smite away.

  3. Something more physics related for you (as I work at a company where no-one will appreciate the wow factor).

    Harvard physics professor (who previous succeeded in stopping light), has now converted it into a matter and back.

  4. Andy – awesome news, but the opening paragraph of the report is a bit irritating with its inaccurate sensationalism. I may need to blog about it. Thx for the heads-up
