Bizarre 'Alien' Asteroid Discovered Orbiting the Wrong Way Near Jupiter

Late last year, our solar system received an unexpected visitor from interstellar space: The asteroid ‘Oumuamua that was discovered suddenly in October and then just as quickly disappeared, passing briefly through our solar system on the way to somewhere else. But now we have a better chance to study a visitor from beyond our solar system.

According to scientists from the Côte d'Azur Observatory and São Paulo State University, there’s at least one interstellar asteroid already here. They found an interstellar asteroid near the planet Jupiter, and unlike ‘Oumuamua, this asteroid is here to stay.

Asteroid 2015 BZ509 was discovered a few years ago by the Pan-STARRS sky survey, the same one that discovered ‘Oumuamua last year. This new asteroid, 2015 BZ509, is a pretty strange one because it orbits in retrograde—in the opposite direction as pretty much everything else in the solar system.

New Earth-Sized Planet Found 11 Light-Years Away Could Support Life

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO’s unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b.

It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope, which will be able to search for biomarkers in the planet's atmosphere.

With the data from HARPS, the team found that Ross 128 b orbits 20 times closer than the Earth orbits the Sun. Despite this proximity, Ross 128 b receives only 1.38 times more irradiation than the Earth. As a result, Ross 128 b’s equilibrium temperature is estimated to lie between -60 and 20°C, thanks to the cool and faint nature of its small red dwarf host star, which has just over half the surface temperature of the Sun.

Many red dwarf stars, including Proxima Centauri, are subject to flares that occasionally bathe their orbiting planets in deadly ultraviolet and X-ray radiation. However, it seems that Ross 128 is a much quieter star, and so its planets may be the closest known comfortable abode for possible life.

Although it is currently 11 light-years from Earth, Ross 128 is moving towards us and is expected to become our nearest stellar neighbour in just 79 000 years — a blink of the eye in cosmic terms. Ross 128 b will by then take the crown from Proxima b and become the closest exoplanet to Earth!

#F1 Formula 1 sporting boss Ross Brawn says simulation work being carried out to assess the technical changes being made for 2019 is showing "tangible" effects that should improve the racing.

Brawn: "Our simulation work and from what the teams, with which we have worked closely on this, tell us [is that] the effects are tangible, even though we are well aware that the real proof will only come next March in the Australian Grand Prix."

Journey from Earth to the Edge of the Universe - A Mind-Blowing Trip Through the Cosmos

On a beautiful, clear night, the stars seem so close you could almost reach out and touch them. How far away are the stars? What lies beyond them? How large is the universe as a whole?

Without knowing distances, the sky is just a starry bowl over our heads – like the dome of a planetarium.

If we can figure out the distance to the stars, we will begin to see what the universe looks like in three dimensions, and we will begin to answer some of the greatest of questions: How old is the universe? Is it infinitely large? What is our place in the cosmos?

Evidently the office of the first lady has some powers to intervene in WH matters but it chooses to do so only in the case of personal enmity... some say this is a Balkan-style spat between a Slovene and a Croat, and I am inclined to believe it. Not that I am expressing sympathies towards a Bolton associate, but yeah - anyone out there still feeling sorry for "imprisoned" Melania?
