Last night I was rewatching "3 Minutes To Impact" on the Discovery Channel. They have updated some, including scenes of landing NEAR on Eros. Good stuff!
The thing that disapointed me was they left in a bad astronomy point. They are talk about an astroid about 15 miles across hitting the Earth and releasing as much energy as 100 nuclear bombs. As TBA pointed out in his review of the original show, they are short of the mark by a couple of orders of magnitude. I find it strange that they left this error in the show while removing/correcting other things.
Anybody else see this?
