Dog bone asteroid – say what!?

Dog Bone Asteroid

I love astrophysics – because of the physics, of course, but also for the way things are named and looked at. It’s just awesome and sometimes also just a tad inappropriate.


Space imagery. Food for thought. Sometimes, the story is right there. Sometimes, it will develop after a while.
