Added 1 new A* page:This could very well be the single most action-packed page I ever make. : o Probably should have been two separate pages (the shot from the satellite, then the retaliation from the staff), buuuuuut what the heck. Also, if it looks darker than usual, I went back this weekend and darkened up all the pages since I switched to my current gamma adjustment method, or anyway starting with page 18, and am now kind of erring on the side of pages being too dark rather than too light; I *had* been trying to do the least amount of gamma adjustment possible, but in flipping through the last four or so episodes over the weekend I realized that, at least against the site's dark background, darker pages are easier on the eyes...as long as they aren't so dark you can't see them, which hopefully isn't the case.|
The article doesn't note whether or not it fired back, but Meteorite leaves crater in Nicaraguan capital Managua (BBC) talks about a large object that just fell to Earth and left a crater not too unlike the one Selenis is looking at right now! (Hm well okay, maybe it was a little larger.) Hopefully someone had a super taser staff on hand just in case it turned out to be a dangerous robot, because, well, you never know, do you? Anyway in this case it was pretty lucky nobody was hurt, because it left a 12m crater in a city of 2.2 million people! They think it might have broken off from a house-sized asteroid that just passed within about 25,000 miles of Earth ("about one-tenth of the distance from the centre of Earth to the Moon"), and which scientists hadn't even spotted until a week ago; a meteor about the same size as that one exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia a year and a half ago, "injuring more than 1,000 people"; its total kinetic energy amounted to "20–30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima."
