A Rare Sight: Hubble Space Telescope Sees Asteroid Falling Apart
by Mike Wall
In a cosmic first, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has photographed the disintegration of an asteroid in deep space.
Astronomers have seen comets break apart as they near the sun, but they’d never witnessed anything similar in an asteroid in the main belt between Mars and Jupiter — until now. Hubble images show that the asteroid, known as P/2013 R3, has fragmented into as many as 10 pieces. Scientists created a video of the rare asteroid P/2013 R3’ breakup based on the Hubble views to chronicle the space rock’s demise.

“I couldn’t handle school. I just felt like it wasn’t for me. I felt like the outcast. No one understood me. So I dropped out. Don’t judge me for that, but you already are. I wanted to follow my dreams. School wasn’t for me. Well, I followed my dreams. I’m successful too. The girl I loved was still with me. The only other girl in the world that cared about me was with me. I was on top of the world. I was touching the sky. I felt good. I was the best and I wanted people to know it. People began to judge me. Telling me I’m arrogant and self centered. Why? Well, because I poured my soul into my art and spoke from the heart. I didn’t let that faze me. The unexpected then happened. The only girl that truly loved me past away. The other one that I loved broke my heart. My life began to go into a downward motion. I was lost. Heartbreaks took over my life. I was still judged. I was the self centered egotistic jerk off everyone loved to hate. Then I found another girl and I let her into my life. It’s hard to open up when you’ve gone through what I have. But I did and I loved her and she loved me. I regrettably made bad mistakes. I’m human and I learned from them. Apparently the girl that I loved, The girl that I let into my life didn’t see it that way and left me. I was heart broken again. I left. I wanted to disappear. I did just that. Now I’m back and loved by some and hated by others because I’m human and I’ve made mistakes. Mistakes of speaking my mind and mistakes of letting others into my life. I am Kanye West. I’m just like you, human.”
