Lauren Maher: Laurie
Laurie : Em, you seem to be the comet expert here. What happened the last time?
Em : This one passed over a hundred years ago, but much farther.
Laurie : But do we know about anything that happened?
Em : Nothing happened then, it was too far away.
Laurie : So, is there any reason we should be freaked out right now?
Em : Well, I mean, it is a lot closer this time.
Laurie : What does that mean?
Em : Okay. I read one more thing...
Lee : Oh, another story!
Em : Just one more. It's called the Tunguska Event, and, um, it was a comet or a meteor or something like that, that entered the atmosphere over Siberia and exploded over Earth. So it didn't actually have physical impact. It didn't touch Earth, it didn't leave a crater or anything, but the force of that explosion flattened trees for hundreds of miles. But it only killed about one to two people.
Laurie : It's Siberia. There were probably only two people there.
Em : Yeah, but they don't necessarily...
Mike : [jokingly] It wiped out the population of Siberia.
Laurie : Basically, yeah.
Em : Right.
Laurie : Well, that doesn't make me feel better.
Kevin : And when was this?
Em : It was like, in 1908, 1903...
