Still sleep easy at night?
A slightly sobering view of just how precarious our local neighborhood is.

And we have been blissfully unaware up until a couple of disaster movies and a few decades ago.

This is truly amazing. We take it for granted that we live day in and day out without being hurt. Let alone the single fact that we as a conscious species seemingly exist alone in the universe is a wonder.

It's hard to have a grasp of just how large the space is in that image though. We consider an asteroid that comes with Earth-Moon distance as extremely close, but if you were to put the Earth and Moon on a dartboard with the Earth at the center and the Moon at an edge, both would be too small to see for the dart thrower. A huge number of large asteroids could come within that area of space with none of them ever hitting Earth.
