The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit hosts an annual judicial conference that is among the biggest in the United States. The crazy liberals (…not) of the Ninth Circuit have decided to host their annual glory-fest in Honolulu this year in order to get a free vacation out of the whole ordeal. During conferences like this one, various speakers give seminars on different topics from analysis of appropriate judicial behavior to the admissibility of expert testimony. One seminar however, stands out. “Killer Asteroids And What We Can Do About Them.” When I first heard about the topic, I thought it was a funny topic to a hidden boring topic. I was wrong. Here is the official description:

Killer Asteroids and What We Can Do About Them
(Wednesday, July 18, 10:30 a.m.)
Three astronomers from the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy will discuss the risks and probabilities of the earth colliding with a wandering asteroid, and whether anything can be done to avert such a potential catastrophe.

…at a judicial conference? I can’t explain why but I do know that I’m excited to see if this turns out to be as awesome as it sounds.
