Now a Cuba Meteor

That meteor exploding over a city in Russia was spectacular. The near Earth fly-by of a dinosaur extincting asteroid was kinda scary. Last night there was another meteor exploding, this time over Cuba.

Imagine if these exact things had happened exactly 50 years ago, in 1962, during the Cold War when the US and Russian nuclear arsenals were on a hair trigger. We all wouldn't be obsessed with things like sequestration or the  Kardashians. We'd be plotting how to steal that fresh meat away from a gang of mutant cockroaches.
