There’s good news in what seems like bad news in today’s news.
Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any stranger, a two-headed snake was discovered in Florida. This after we learned that the first nest of murder hornets was found in the US.

Now to the good news: The two-headed snake in Florida is not venomous. The murder hornets in Washington were tracked down and destroyed by entomologists. And only two naked mole rat pups are known to have been stolen, at least so far.

In more bad news that isn’t, noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson warned recently that an asteroid could strike Earth the day before the November 3 election. However, he said the refrigerator-sized space rock is not large enough to do any serious damage. And data from NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies suggests there is zero chance that the asteroid will actually hit our planet.
