A New near-earth object was first spotted on Friday, 20 January 2017. Asteroid 2017 BX — called it — flew past us at a distance of about 260 million kilometers from Earth. The average distance from our planet to the moon is only 384 with small thousands of kilometers.
For the First time information about the asteroid came from the service , which broadcasts live from space online. Later the site launched a stream dedicated to the asteroid 2017 BX. According to experts at Slooh and NASA, near-earth object 2017 BX similar to another asteroid 2017 AG13 flew around the Earth 9 January 2017.
But if 2017 AG13 was the size of a ten-storey building, the new friend is much more modest in its size — only about fifteen feet, and he flew slowly, at a speed of about 26,000 miles per hour. This asteroid is too slow and small, so a threat to Earth, he is not, but space «desyatietazhki» — this is no joke. Fortunately, she, too, flew past. However, fallen from the sky stone the size of a truck just one would not be pleased.
Currently, astronomers know of fifteen thousand celestial objects flying towards Earth. Many of them represent a danger to our planet.
the Speed of light is one of the most important constants in physics.
the Cultivation of living artificial organs — really a difficult task.
