Tucked away safely down here on earth, the limits of our imagination is confined to sci-fi films, and the odd natural disaster – ok increasingly natural disasters, but sometimes we do need to be reminded we are a part of something more…
July 2011 to date has been a busy time with that something more when it comes to comets. The preoccupation with comets Elenin and Nibiru also takes away from the comet show that has been taking place since the beginning of the year, but has particularly busy in July 2011.

Rocks recently found in Morocco are recent migrants to Earth.
“The rocks not only are rare because they came from Mars — of the roughly 24,000 meteorites that have been discovered on Earth, only about 34 hail from the red planet, NASA says — they also just arrived. The biggest of the 15 rocks weighs more than 2 pounds. They’re worth 10 times the price of gold.”
