What's so great about J002E3?

January 08, 2014 Benjamin Gray

In 2002 a small asteroid known as J002E3 was discovered on a near earth orbit. Under further scrutiny J002E3 turned out to be the third stage of Apollo 12's Saturn V rocket! It's currently on a heliocentric orbit and expected to come back around the mid 2040s. In the mean time lets watch a cool gif the last time it came to visit.
