NASA announces that an asteroid the size of a bus is set to pass extremely close to Earth today. Asteroid 2012 BX34 will pass within 36,750 miles of Earth at about 3:30 p.m GMT/10:30 a.m. EST Friday, January 27, tweeted astronomers with NASA’s Asteroid Watch program. Even though this is more than five times closer than the moon, at 11 meters wide, the rock won’t be any threat to Earth. “It...

Asteroid 2012 JU passed within nearly 119,000 miles of Earth on May 14, just a whisker away from us in astronomical terms

Asteroid 2012 JU passed within nearly 119,000 miles of Earth on May 14, just a whisker away from us in astronomical terms. Indeed, the bus-sized asteroid came closer to us than the moon does, with our celestial partner spinning around us at a distance of 238,000 miles. Luckily, we were never in any danger from the 12-metre wide asteroid, but it is another reminder of the risk we face from these r...

There are only 981 of these objects near Earth, and NASA has found 911 of them.   Related search articles:Asteroid Hit Earth 2014 2019 asteriod 2018 asteroid to hit earth in 2018 asteroid 20...

Prof. Alan Fitzsimmons said: “While [the asteroid] is relatively close to the Earth, astronomers can ping it with radar. Radar measurements are incredibly accurate: we get the distance to the asteroid very, very prec...

Asteroid 2012 DA14, as large as an Olympic swimming pool, has raced past the Earth at a distance of just 17,200 miles – the closest ever predicted for an object of that size. The asteroid passed far closer even than the geosynchronous satellites that orbit the Earth, but there was no risk of impacts or collisions. Its closest approach was at 19:25 GMT. For regions in darkness, it should rem...

European scientists are developing a system to protect Earth from the giant asteroids which travel around the Milky Way. The NEOShield project is run out of Berlin with funds from the EU. The project, which will look for a way to protect Earth from the space rocks, is expected to take three years to complete. Some of the ideas being tossed around at the moment include repelling asteroids with pro...

But an asteroid that size would not make a 200 km-diameter crater,” said Dr. Jason Moore. “So we said: how do we get something that has enough energy to generate that size of crater, but has much less rocky mate...

NASA’s Dawn satellite has left the giant Asteroid Vesta after 13 months of study. A signal from Dawn probe confirming that it had escaped the gravitational bounds of the 530 km-wide rock was received by NASA on Wednesday.

Cheap sensors that help cars avoid collisions could emerge from research into a lensless imaging system. US scientists have used metamaterials to build the imaging system, which samples infra-red and microwave light. Metamaterials are materials that have properties purposefully designed rather than determined by their chemistry. The sensor also compresses the images it captures in contrast to cur...
