Edward Joseph Herlihy, (August 14, 1909 - January 30, 1999), was a radio announcer whose mellow voice was familiar to moviegoers in the 1940s for Universal Newsreels. He touched Americans' hearts and souls everywhere with his description and narration of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to the Allied fighting Force's earliest moves during WWII.  He narrated President Roosevelt's death,  detailed the detonation of the atomic bomb and the launch of Sputnik.

Asteroid And Comets Passing Near Earth Are Mapped

VAV!/January 26, 2014 NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft has been collecting data about asteroids and comets passing near Earth since December 2013.   NEOWISE has discovered and characterized 40 near-Earth objects (NEOs) in the first year after the mission was re-started in December 2013.*  Eight of the discoveries have been classified as potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs), based on their size and how close their orbits could come to Earth's orbit. The mission has further observed and characterized 245 previously known near-Earth objects. From December 2013 to December 2014, NEOWISE discovered three new comets and observed 32 others. One of the others has turned into the brightest comet in Earth's night sky in early 2015, comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy). Now, NASA has compiled the data to create the below video, that shows the progression of NASA's NEOWISE survey in the year after its Dec. 2013 restart. Each dot represents an asteroid or comet that the mission observed.
