Close to a fulfilled prediction

Many times on this blog I've talked about a bit of concern that we might get smacked with enough of an asteroid to cause major civilization problems.  Back at the beginning of the year, in my 10 undangerous predictions, I didn't choose to predict that we'd get hit with a notable asteroid.  But I did predict this:

 10. A major satellite collision in space emphasizes the space debris problem.
-- The odds of this keep increasing every year!

Oh, how I wish I'd predicted "a major bolide event will emphasize the danger of NEOs".  But I didn't.

However, as we now know, we HAVE been reminded of the danger of NEOs.
