Hitch a ride ...

This would have been a great opportunity to hitch a ride on an asteroid. The darn thing was only a "couple of miles" away when it went by. And we've known it was coming for a while too.

Someone should have launched a probe that would get trapped in it's orbit and follow the blighter into deep space. Let's see where it's going.
