85. Pop-Culture-Corn: Music: Meco - Dance Your Asteroids Off
Review by Matt Springer, 4 of 5 cheerios. There isn't a bad track on Dance Your asteroids Off, but there isn't really a good track, either, and that's what makes it a priceless gem.
Meco, Dance Your Asteroids Off
Record Label: Mecoman April 2000 Review by Matt Springer
What's the kitschiest CD you own? Go ahead; take a look. Flip through the racks of your personal collection and pick one out. Is it Milli Vanilli? Vanilla Ice? Regis Philbin? It should be Dance Your Asteroids Off , the new compilation disc from Meco. Do you remember Meco? He did a series of inexplicably successful revisions of classic film scores throughout the late seventies and early eighties, including the Close Encounters theme and The Wizard of Oz . This collection focuses solely on the work he did using John Williams' music from the Star Wars films, and man, it's a doozy. The disc opens with what was probably his biggest hit, his blowout number for the first Star Wars film, replete with sound effects from the film and swingin' disco beat. Hearing the now-seminal strains of Williams' Star Wars main titles music pumped out over a wah-wah guitar and slammin' dance groove is so deliciously awful that it's good. Real good. This tune alone makes the disc worth a purchase; it's got all the Lucasian embarassment value of the Star Wars Holiday Special But it doesn't quit there! No, Meco takes us on a tour of his music from all FOUR

Asteroids - The Classic Video Game of the '70's
Here is an old time favorite that was loved by many, and still is judging by the high volume of visitors! Only problem was, me being a kid back then, I couldn't afford to pay a quarter a game. Fortunetly for you, this one is free so you can play to your hearts content. Although this isn't the most educational game on this site it isn't completly devoid of educational value. You must be able to prioritize and track multiple targets, forcing your brain into hyperthink mode. You also must learn to lead your target. And if the planet Earth is ever attacked by a swarm of alien guided projectiles, your services will be in instant demand. Wait for the applet and sounds to finish loading, this may take a minute or two. The Asteroids game screen will show "Game Over - 'S' to Start" once everything is ready. In the meantime you can review the instructions below. Note: If Asteroids doesn't seem to be responding to key presses, click your mouse pointer in the game area. Playing the Game Use the keyboard controls described below to maneuver your ship, destroying as many asteroids as you can while avoiding collision with them. Also watch for the flying saucers armed with guided missles.

Thursday, 12 April, 2001, 10:36 GMT 11:36 UK Asteroids 'affected human evolution'
A threat to our early ancestors?
By BBC News Online science editor Dr David Whitehouse Impacts by asteroids may have affected the course of human evolution, according to two researchers studying how often the Earth has been struck in the past. They say that rather than gradual and uninterrupted human evolution, the ascent of mankind could have been influenced by frequent cosmic catastrophes.
It is sobering to realise that we are alive due to cosmic luck rather than our genetic make-up
Dr Benny Peiser, John Moores University, UK Their work, they say, explains one of the biggest problems that has puzzled researchers for generations: why almost all human-like creatures or hominids, have become extinct during the past five million years. According to traditional theories of evolution, our early ancestors were slowly and gradually replaced because they failed to compete with other human species that had superior "fitness". But according to Dr Benny Peiser, a social anthropologist at John Moores University in Liverpool, UK, and Michael Paine, an impact researcher from the Planetary Society in Australia, the most likely cause of hominid extinctions may be more than 20 globally devastating catastrophes that occurred over the last five million years.

Experts say asteroid information should be shared
A small asteroid could accidentally trigger a nuclear war if mistaken for a missile strike, experts have warned. An asteroid explosion over India or Pakistan could unleash nuclear war
Scientists and military chiefs studying the threat are calling for a global warning centre to be set up to inform governments immediately of asteroid impacts. The risk is seen as particularly grave if an asteroid blast were to happen in areas of military tension, such as over nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan Each year about 30 asteroids several metres in length pierce the atmosphere and explode, with even the smaller sized ones unleashing as much energy as the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in Japan. 'Panic' reaction Earlier this month, an Israeli pilot flying an airliner over the Ukraine reported seeing a blue flash in the sky similar to the type of blast caused by a surface-to-air missile, despite Ukrainian authorities saying no such missile had been fired.

Asteroids, Comets, and Meterorites: Their Intimate Relation with Life on Earth

Contents of Curriculum Unit 96.06.03:
To Guide Entry
This curriculum unit presents an interdisciplinary approach to the study of science, bringing together information from astronomy, earth science and ecology. The unit, written as part of the seminar “Outstanding Problems in Contemporary Astronomy and Cosmology,” addresses the question, “how is and how has life on Earth been influenced by events occurring in our Solar System?” More specifically, I present information on the relation between asteroids, comets and meteorites and life on Earth. I review current scientific thinking about how our Solar System’s asteroids and comets interacted with a young Earth to create the necessary conditions for the origin of life, and how meteoritic impacts have altered the evolution of life through Earth history. Sample teaching strategies are presented to suggest ways of presenting the subject matter to students. In developing this topic, I have drawn on my deep interest in ecology and an interest in earth science, including the fields of paleontology and mass extinction theory. The Teachers Institute seminar has been an excellent vehicle for learning more about astronomy and cosmology, especially solar system astronomy and planetary science. It has given me an opportunity to read and talk about issues in astronomy and to combine pertinent information from the fields of astronomy, earth science, and ecology.

Asteroids Asteroids Future/Past Missions Instruments ... Comets Did you know?
Asteroids are small, have very little gravity and are hard to see in space because their rocky surfaces don't reflect a lot of light. Nevertheless, NASA's Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous spacecraft achieved a tricky landing on asteroid Eros in February 2001.
The Asteroid Belt: Is it the planet that never was? The space between Mars and Jupiter is filled with a population of irregularly shaped chunks of debris called asteroids. Objects in this asteroid belt are made of rock and metal, mostly nickel and iron. Scientists believe the asteroids are pieces of a planet that never formed. An ongoing gravitational tug-of-war between Jupiter and Mars may have prevented the pieces from bonding together. Other asteroids are not part of this belt and some have paths which cross Earth's orbit. ( More More Images JPL Instruments and Data:

Near-Earth Objects are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth's neighborhood. Near-Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT)
NEAT is a camera observing system on a ground-based telescope located on the rim of the Haleakala Crater in Maui, Hawaii. It tracks asteroids and comets that come near Earth's and Mars' orbit.

asteroids. asteroids are small bodies that are believed to be left over fromthe beginning of the solar system 4.6 billion years ago. Table of asteroids.
Asteroids are small bodies that are believed to be left over from the beginning of the solar system 4.6 billion years ago. They are rocky objects with round or irregular shapes up to several hundred km across, but most are much smaller. More than 100,000 asteroids lie in a belt between Mars and Jupiter. These asteroids lie in a location in the solar system where there seems to be a jump in the spacing between the planets. Scientists think that this debris may be the remains of an early planet, which broke up early in the solar system. Several thousand of the largest asteroids in this belt have been given names. The chances of an asteroid colliding with Earth are very small! But some do come close to Earth, like Hermes (closest approach of 777,000 km).

Playing Instructions:

Use the keyboard controls described below to manoeuvre your ship and zap as many asteroids as you can - and watch for the flying saucers armed with guided missles. If you warp into hyperspace, your ship will momentarily disappear then reappear on another part of the screen, gradually fading in. During this time the ship is invulnerable. Likewise, when your ship is destroyed, a new one will appear in the centre of the screen. You can still manoeuvre and fire during this time so if you are in imminent danger, you have a couple of seconds to get out of it.

RPGLounge - Software - Rasteroids
Rasteroids - a Portable Asteroids clone for DOS and LINUX (under the GNU GPL) Rasteroids is a game of my own creation, created originally on a trip with my family where the only computer I had access to ran Windows. I brought with me, on a portable backpack hard drive, a copy of DJGPP for DOS. I wrote a good portion of the base code here and set the stage for a modular framework, but by the end of the four day excursion, I had little more than a ship on the screen that could be moved. In the next week, I added asteroids, rules, a title screen, and now at home, a Linux port of the game. The Linux port and the dos port use the same codebase, but different Makefiles. I used Cygnus Codefusion for an IDE for the Linux port, as well as JCC... There are three distributions of this game (as of v0.1). The source distribution, the static linux distribution, and the DOS binary distribution. For the source distro under Linux, you will need:
