Scientists Mistakenly Warn of Asteroid Collision - 28th of April, 2018

Scientists Mistakenly Warn of Asteroid Collision

Mike:Good evening and welcome to concave news, your most trusted news source on the interwebs. This is Mike.

Dana: And this is Dana.

Dana:Hey Mike, it's good to be alive isn't it? Well, tonight we're all breathing a sigh of relief as it turns out that the alert we received on our mobile phone about the impending apocalypse was just a system glitch.

Mike:That's right Dana. Just a glitch. These things happen. People make mistakes, and sometimes they can be alarming but we're all only human after all.

Dana:According to the reports we're getting it seemed that one of the laboratory assistants didn't know how to use a piece of software on their system and managed to accidentally find their way to the panel that controls the serious security alerts and accidentally clicked the mouse in the wrong part of the screen.

Mike:Dana, I find that hard to believe actually that with our modern technology and systems we don't have more intricate checks and balances in place but then these are scientists, those wacky inventors with a penchant for mass destruction in interesting ways.

Dana:Perhaps Mike, but then if you thought there was a good chance of an asteroid wiping us out at any moment it makes sense that the alert button is right under your nose - just in that event that you need to push it. Better than having it hidden beneath a mountain of security checks.

Mike:It certainly made for some interesting scenes though as complete strangers began hugging and kissing on the city streets thinking it would be their last day on Earth.

Dana:Certainly Mike, don't get any ideas.
