Comet ‘Armageddon’ less likely than previously thought

Well, this is good news! An astronomer has calculated that there are seven times fewer comets in our solar system than previously thought, and thus the chances of us being wiped out by a collision with a “continent-busting” comet are also less than previously thought; such a thing probably only happens once every 150 million years or so.

I like this quote:

“So I don’t lose sleep over it, but you’re still more likely to be killed by a comet than win the jackpot at Lotto.”

I always appreciate a good dig at lottery-ticket buying.
