How come I didn't hear about NASA landing on an asteroid 100 million miles away until now?
It wasn't very well publicized earlier in the mainstream media, was it ?

NASA has a website. Visit it more often if you're interested in things like this.

Our 'news' services would rather talk about twitter reactions and Kim Kardashian than things like asteroids.

Because you haven't bothered following science news?
Yeah, I'm going with that.
People who are interested in things like that have been following the Bennu mission for literally years. It launched four years ago.

Someone at NASA finally saw the movie Armageddon.
They want everyone to think it was their idea.
FWIW, like Trump said...he didn't want to alarm people.
By "alarming people", it means some people (and groups of people) will think the world is coming to an end and they will reek as much havoc as they can until they get taken down themselves. Think...The Purge.
