The boys in Linkin Park are working with their charity, Music for Relief, to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy relief in the U.S. and Haiti. As if donating to a charity isn’t enough of a reward, Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and the gang are sweetening the pot.
For every $10 or more donation gets you entered into a drawing to win a trip for two to LA to spend an hour with the band in their private studio. Linkin Park are currently working on their new album, so the winner will be able to watch the process firsthand. Airfare and a hotel stay will be included in the prize package. The deadline to donate and enter is May 31.
Linkin Park’s Music for Relief charity has raised nearly $4 million dollars since its kick-off in 2005. In the past, the charity has stepped in to provide aid for relief efforts for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the earthquake in Haiti, Habitat for Humanity and beyond. Thanks to their longstanding charity efforts, Linkin Park have been honored by the United Nations Association of the United States of America with a Global Leadership Award.

For the first time ever, an asteroid has been photographed breaking apart in space. NASA's Hubble telescope was able to capture images between October and January showing the asteroid gradually crumbling into 10 smaller pieces.
