The famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said today that space rock 2018 VPC1 is hurtling
toward Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on November 2.

Kawai ... you're in BIG trouble. smile

That's an old news. It landed on Earth many many years ago and many "Kawai James" beings originated from the impact.

I guess now we know why Kawai isn't bothering to make an updated VPC-2. Who knows what kind of disaster that might bring?

Let me put it this way: I'm surprised that the impact didn't make the VPC1's action become a folded one. :-)

@thread:

I searched online for "Neil deGrasse Tyson + Kawai" and "asteroid + Kawai" but couldn't find any information.

Am I missing something?

Kind regards,

Technically it's 2018VP1, but maybe Kawai can rename the VPC1 to VP1 to fit this thread. grin

Ahhhh, okay!

But, surely this would have been a better candidate for Mac's Photoshop artistry?
