Geeks Unite

Spent some time listening to NPR's Science Friday this afternoon. During their first hour they were giving live coverage to the close encounter of the asteroid that came within earth's satellite ring. The excitement from the scientists around the world was incredible. In one of the segments they were talking to a scientist at a gathering to watch and "celebrate" the event. As they were broadcasting live, the moment came when the asteroid approached its nearest point to earth.

They counted it down, just like New Year's Eve in Times Square.

A truly awesome Geek moment!
