Astronomers have shown the absence of large asteroids near the Sun

Astronomers NASA, working with data sets STEREO, failed to detect so-called vulkanoidov - asteroids, traded near the sun, news agencies reported. According to scientists, if there are heavenly bodies, their diameter does not exceed 5.7 km. This is the conclusion the researchers came from observations, which were conducted between December 2008 and February 2009. At this time, two identical STEREO project staff to observe the behavior of the Sun. It was assumed that during this period of time should double vulkanoidy pass near the spacecraft, but it did not. Four experts analyzed data sets Read more [...]

Megaizverzheniya, epidemics, asteroids and aliens: so many threats to the Earth after the Mayan predictions

Compiled by the World Economic Forum report, which lists the natural phenomena that can destroy our planet, suggests that worry is meaningless, says Elena duzi in an article published on the website of the newspaper La Repubblica."We thought we escaped Mayan prophecies. However, we have little reason to stay calm when you take into account all the disasters that can destroy life on our planet. This is a natural phenomena, such as megaizverzheniya, storms on the sun, gamma-ray bursts in space, epidemics, and of course, asteroids, tsunamis, or meetings with extraterrestrial beings. All these Read more [...]

Scientists propose ram asteroids spacecraft

To prepare for the meeting of a massive asteroid that could threaten Earth in the future, scientists propose to ram his spaceship in order to move an object with a dangerous orbit.According to the proposal presented on Wednesday, December 5, at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union, Andrew Cheng, a physicist from the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University, the asteroid are encouraged not to send two spacecraft, one would have to crash into the asteroid, while the second will be watching this event and transmit to Earth on its findings.At present, the scientific community Read more [...]

Mysterious mini-satellites: how many of them at the Earth?

Perhaps the gravity of the Earth and is not as powerful as gravity of Jupiter, but our planet regularly pulls into his orbit small asteroids that pass by her. These mini-satellites will not stay with us for a long time. For about a year they renew their motion on loop-like, curved path around the sun. But in their place with the other space guests arrive.Simulation shows that the two asteroids the size of the machine dishwashing detergent and about a dozen half-meter rock orbiting the Earth at this time. Every fifty years to orbit the Earth comes asteroid the size of a truck."We would like Read more [...]

Scientists propose deflect asteroids spacecraft

10/12/2012 As you know, thousands and thousands of asteroids travel through the solar system, and some of them have come close to the planet that sometimes encounter it. New plan to save the Earth is another interesting alternative in the fight against the apocalypse. This has already happened many times in Earth's history, but also in the history of its satellite - the Moon. If many of the "scars" of asteroids and meteorites relatively quickly "delayed" due to, for example, geological processes, the expansion of the territory of the plants, or as a result of human activity, Read more [...]

Killer dinosaurs could be double

Notorious meteorite, which has helped to clear the land of dinosaurs, in fact, could be a double, that is, two asteroids hit the planet. Generally considered that the diameter of the giant killer lizards ranged from 7 to 10 km, but it can be a total diameter of a system of two bodies. The basis of the new hypothesis - revaluation of the share of craters that were formed as a result of a double exposure.Among the scars that are left in the world of double strokes, we should first call the Clearwater in Quebec (Canada) near Hudson Bay, formed about 290 million years ago. Such examples are rare: Read more [...]

Near the Earth swept large asteroid

April 1. Today near the Earth swept a large asteroid. He is 46 meters in diameter, and was the closest to our planet in half of the fourth Tbilisi time. The asteroid was on a safe path at a distance of 230 thousand kilometers from Earth. This is almost twice closer than the orbit of the moon. But much farther than the distance to two asteroids that pass by Earth on March 26, with a difference of several hours. NASA notes that this — quite a rare phenomenon, and such asteroids pose no danger to people. To threaten the Earth can only celestial body with a diameter of more than one Read more [...]

Asteroid threats in the context of technological development

It is easy to see that the direct risk of a collision with an asteroid decreases with technological development. First, they decrease due to more accurate measurement of the probability itself - that is, by more accurately detect dangerous asteroids and measure their orbits. (However, if the assumptions are true, we live in a cometary bombardment during the episode, the risk assessment will increase by 100 times the background.) Second, they decrease by increasing our ability to deflect asteroids. On the other hand, the effects of asteroid strikes are becoming more and more - if only because Read more [...]

Asteroid

Asteroid and comets is often regarded as one of the possible causes of the extinction of mankind. Although such collisions are possible, the chances of total extinction as a result of them probably exaggerated. See articles Pustynsky "The consequences fall to Earth asteroids large" [Pustynsky 1999] and Wisniewski "impact events and extinction of organisms" [Wisniewski BD]. In the last article concluded that "asteroid diameter of about 60 km can kill all highly organized forms of life on Earth. " However, this size asteroids fall to Earth very rarely, once every Read more [...]

Asteroid deflection

Buduschie Space technology has sent from Earth asteroids as well as to her. Asteroid deflection allows to organize an anonymous attack on the country you have chosen. But in this case it is not a global catastrophe, leading to human extinction. At close to the Earth orbits no asteroids that could lead to the extinction of the people guaranteed, ie asteroids with more 10 km in diameter (and sometimes much more - see the following section of the power of the explosion asteroids), and that can be easily dismissed. (However, reject small, 10-300 m in diameter, "stone" and hit them selected Read more [...]

Bombs and lasers in space: the solution to the problem or create a new

Anyway, little by little, the problem is perceived as real, and the separate systems to detect and deflect an asteroid tested. Deep Impact probe struck the comet Tempel copper disc, an ABM technique worked through shooting fast-moving targets. In this connection, however, there is a natural fear that such system can be used for harm. For example, in the near future can be secretly reject an asteroid, sending him to the ground, so that he fell down in a certain place. Of course, the probability of such an action by any party to be slight, but chance naturally fall to Earth asteroid is also very Read more [...]
