We're becoming better at identifying meters yes, historically these things would hit unpopulated parts of the Earth and get unreported.
It's somewhat worrisome ... it would be disastrous if this were to hit New York or Shanghai. Fortunately, there are people working on better identification systems.
This ~1 billion dollar project is largely being funded because it will give us a better asteroid map of the solar system:
In case people are serious, the mathematical root of this hologram idea is that any amount of information in an n-dimensional space can be encoded onto a 2-dimensional plane. In contrast, you cannot encode 2D information onto a 1D line.
I don't expect measurements of the Milky Way's mass to converge until the 2020s. It's a hard problem and people are using oversimplified models.
what is the poll asking about?

Probably the first post in the thread.

Massive Storms Ripping Through Uranus' Atmosphere Leave Scientists Puzzled
LoL.....really? Ripping through Uranus! LMAO! No pun intended.
They need to rename that poor freaking planet.

Or at least teach people to pronounce it correctly - Your eh ness.
A shame the Rosetta Mission may be cut short due to probe battery life. They're apparently drilling the comet as we speak.
They need to teach people how to pronounce it. 'yu-rin-is'
Really? Last I read they were afraid of doing so because the lander wasn't stable enough, I guess they managed to get it secured?
And yes it's a shame that it happened to land in the shade.
They pressed ahead regardless because of how little battery life remained, if there was no chance of saving the battery and getting the probe into sunlight they had nothing to lose really in the end. Wired updated a few hours ago that all the primary objectives of the mission were completed and the probe has been put into hibernation with the hope it may recharge itself with what little sunlight it is getting later on.

Either one's a step up.
Aaaand speaking of our favorite comet chaser, to expand on what jmc said...
Check out that page. Lots of awesome pics and info on there.
I know I shouldn't be but I'm weirdly emotional about Philae. I know the trip was mostly a success but the idea of it snoozing on a comet for ever is a little sad
Little Philae will forever dream of stars... and comets.
