Los Alamos to be hit by 10 km asteroid late in 2014
Or, more precisely, a roundabout. See Carol Clark's article for details. There will be some very unhappy people here. My main concerns (and I think similar concerns have been expressed by former County Councillor Robert Gibson) are that the County continues to lack a comprehensive master plan for the downtown that integrates transportation and development with a cohesive, objective set of goals (such as limiting sprawl, making Los Alamos less car-dependent, and broadening our economic base beyond LANL). Otherwise, I think the roundabout will be kinda cool. Until and unless, of course, we build more stuff on the East side of town the clogs our traffic.
