“Near Earth Object (N.E.O.)” | SUNG SCIENCE


Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! I am an asteroid orbiting in space in the belt between Mars and Jupiter. I will collide and go spinning out of place, towards the stars or back towards Earth. I’m made of rocks and metal. Elemental dust that settled. Four and half billion years ago! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! I am a comet orbiting much farther out than Neptune or Pluto. The path I’m on brings me towards your star, heats up my core, a tail of gas begins to show. I’m made of rocks and frozen gas. Looking like a shooting star as I go past. Sling shot and then back out I go! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh! I’ll never be a ‘Near Earth Object‘ I’ll never be an ‘NEO’ NASA’s got my trajectory projected like the two million four thousand objects they know. I’m a meteorite! I killed the dinosaurs! I was an asteroid or a comet or piece of a planet and I crashed. I sort of bumped my head… I’m in New Mexico!! I am an asteroid. I am a comet. AND I’M A METEOR!! I know I started out the size of a VW Bus, but then I hit the Earth’s atmosphere and now I’m about the size of a microwave oven… Hey, you guys wanna hang out? I’ll never be a ‘Near Earth Object’ I’ll never be an ‘NEO’ I’ll never be an ‘NEO’ (so thats a no?) NASA’s got my trajectory projected like the two million four thousand objects they know. is it a soft maybe? Yeah, but you know where I am? I’m in field, or a museum, or sometimes on a pretty lady’s necklace… ENJOY THE VACUUM OF SPACE!! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
