October 29, 1991

On October 29, 1991, the asteroid 951 Gaspra was surprised while taking a shower by the American spacecraft Galileo. The spacecraft asked Gaspra if it has taken the Lord Jesus Christ as its personal savior. It then tried to leave several Watchtowers and Chick Tracts with Gaspra, but Gaspra huffed away and slammed the front door in Galileo’s face. Gaspra called up Earth and complained about being visited by the humans’ scientific probe. Earth said that people were a rambunctious lot and that Gaspra should be excited at being the first asteroid ever visited by a spacecraft. And did it know that Halloween and D&D were exposing the youth of the solar system to demonic influence.
