An asteroid doesn't need to be massive to cause serious damage. The Chicxulub asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs is estimated to have been about 6 miles in diameter. That may sound like a pretty big space rock, but relative to Earth it's pretty tiny. But what's the likelihood of an asteroid of that size coming into contact with Earth again? The following is from NASA's website: "Every day, Earth is bombarded with more than 100 tons of dust and sand-sized particles. About once a year, an automobile-sized asteroid hits Earth's atmosphere, creates an impressive fireball, and burns up before reaching the surface. Every 2,000 years or so, a meteoroid the size of a football field hits Earth and causes significant damage to the area. Only once every few million years, an object large enough to threaten Earth's civilization comes along. Impact craters on Earth, the moon and other planetary bodies are evidence of these occurrences." -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Two Asteroids Buzz Earth in One Two Punch - They will Pass Extremely near our Planet, at 0.1 and 1.0 LD. Asteroid 2017 BH30 is Set to Pass extremely close to Earth Jan. 30. The space rock was first observed by Catalina Sky Survey on 2017-01-29. It will fly by Earth on Jan. 30 at 0.1 times the distance to the Moon at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 15.6 km/s. It is estimated to be 4.6 m - 10 meters in size. Condition code of 6. http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=2017%20BH30;orb=1 Another newly discovered asteroid is going to pass close to Earth on Jan. 31. Asteroid 2017 BJ30 was first observed on Jan. 29 and it will fly by Earth on Jan. 31 at 1.0 times the distance to the moon at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 22,210 km per hour. It is estimated to be 13 - 28 meters in size. http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=2017%20BJ30;orb=1 Some of them are passing undetected. A small asteroid (7-16 m) made a close approach at 1.1 times the distance to the moon on Jan. 26. 2017 BA7 passed at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 11 km/s. http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=2017%20BA7;orb=1 Upcoming Close Approaches to Earth http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/ca/ Clips credit: NASA/JPL Music credit: Broken Reality by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1400010 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

On July 20, 2015, NASA released to the world the first image of the sunlit side of Earth captured by the space agency's EPIC camera on NOAA's DSCOVR satellite. The camera has now recorded a full year of life on Earth from its orbit at Lagrange point 1, approximately 1 million miles from Earth, where it is balanced between the gravity of our home planet and the sun. EPIC takes a new picture every two hours, revealing how the planet would look to human eyes, capturing the ever-changing motion of clouds and weather systems and the fixed features of Earth such as deserts, forests and the distinct blues of different seas. EPIC will allow scientists to monitor ozone and aerosol levels in Earth’s atmosphere, cloud height, vegetation properties and the ultraviolet reflectivity of Earth. The primary objective of DSCOVR, a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force, is to maintain the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities, which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of space weather alerts and forecasts from NOAA.

Trivia: Saturn's rings were created using Voyager data and Cassini Data, and tables from the IAU, and nasa Interestingly enough, the voyager data and Cassini data did Not completely match each other, More interestingly the differences between the two data sets were not consistent along the ring, specifically the small Gaps along the rings are inconsistent between voyager and cassini. there are 3 conclusions i can reach from this, 1, the data is simply not perfectly accurate, 2, I interpreted the data incorrectly, 3, the Rings have actually changed a bit between voyager and cassini. To create the rings, I interpolated between the two data sets, so the rings are a mix between voyager and cassini data, there are multiple textures used, for scattering, translucency, transparency, and color, I think I probably have some of the highest resolution textures in use anywhere on the web(over 19k pixels across), in Part 1, (the 2d blue print video)the Planets are all correctly scaled to each other, except the SUN.. The Orbits are also all correctly scaled to each other (except the Moon's)However the planet size, and the planet orbits are not scaled to each other. The orbital speeds are also all correct relative to one another, In part 2, The illumination between the moon and Saturn is reasonably accurate, In case you didn't understand, This is Saturn as Far away as the closest approach mars would get in Part 3, the meteors ramp up and down in response to going through the very distended outer rings E, and G the Meteors are Greenish, I've actually seen a Number of large daylight meteors, all of them had flashes of green and blue, The velocity and direction they are in the video is accurate to the motion of Saturn in this video Disclaimer: This will.. never never ever happen, ever (probably).

A number of people who've seen NASA's annual lunar phase and libration videos have asked what the other side of the Moon looks like, the side that can't be seen from the Earth. This video answers that question. The imagery was created using Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter data.

Learn the difference between an asteroid, comet and meteor. Our dear planet Earth is the hotbed of cosmic activity this year. Let's recap some recent news - a meteor explodes over Russia, an asteroid barely missed crashing into Earth, and later this year, we will see a comet in the skies that will shine brighter than full Moon. Asteroids, Comets, Meteors - ever wonder the difference among those 3 celestial bodies? Asteroids are usually made from space debris like rock, although some are comprised of nickel or iron. The bodies range in size from a boulder to hundreds of miles in diameter. They orbit around the sun. Some asteroids have struck the Earth in the past, but most don't survive passing through our planet's atmosphere. Comets are essentially space's equivalent to snowballs. Unlike the asteroids that are mostly found in inner part of the solar system, comets begin their life outside the solar system. The cosmic balls consist of frozen gases, dust and rock. Measuring the size of a quaint town, comets' temperatures increase when their orbit brings them close to the sun, resulting in the spewing of gas and dust which creates a glowing head along with a tail that sprawls away from the sun for millions of miles. Meteors are mistakenly referred to as shooting stars, but they are actually comprised of dust grains or rocks. They are generally smaller than the Asteroids. When they get near Earth's gravitational pull, they are sucked into the atmosphere and descend downwards. They usually burn up before hitting the ground, but often let off a flash of light. Sometimes they are big enough to make it to Earth, and are then known as meteorites.

Asteroid 2017 BX, nicknamed after the late actor Fred Berry whose played ‘Rerun’ on the show ‘What's Happening,’ will pass between the Earth and the moon on Jan. 25, 2017. It is estimated to be between 13 and 46 feet (four and 14 meters) in diameter and will fly within 162,252 miles (261,119 km) of Earth.

Scientists working with NASA's 230-foot-wide (70-meter) Deep Space Network antenna at Goldstone, California, have released the first radar images of asteroid 2004 BL86. The images show the asteroid, which made its closest approach today (Jan. 26, 2015) at 8:19 a.m. PST (11:19 a.m. EST) at a distance of about 745,000 miles (1.2 million kilometers, or 3.1 times the distance from Earth to the moon), has its own small moon.
