An asteroid half the size of a football field will give Earth the ultimate close shave this month, passing closer than many satellites when it whizzes by, but it won't hit the planet, NASA scientists say.

The asteroid 2012 DA14 will fly by Earth on Feb. 15 and zip within 17,200 miles (27, 680 kilometers) of the planet during the cosmic close encounter. The asteroid will approach much closer to Earth than the moon, and well inside the paths of navigation and communications satellites.

"This is a record-setting close approach," Don Yeomans, the head of NASA's asteroid-tracking program, said in a statement. "Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, we've never seen an object this big get so close to Earth."

Asteroid 2012 DA14 was discovered last year by an amateur team of stargazers at the La Sagra Sky Survey observatory in Spain. Yeomans  stressed that, while the asteroid's approach bring it closer than the geosynchronous satellites  orbiting 22,245 miles (35,800 km) above Earth, 2012 DA14 poses no threat of a deadly collision with the planet. [See Don Yeomans Explain Asteroid 2012 DA14 (Video)]

"2012 DA14 will definitely not hit Earth. The orbit of the asteroid is known well enough to rule out an impact," Yeomans, who heads the Near-Earth Object Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. He added that the odds it will slam into a satellite are "extremely remote."

 

A fairly typical asteroid like 2012 DA14 — which measures 150 feet (45 meters) across — zips by Earth about every 40 years, but only strikes every 1,200 years, Yeomans estimated, and the impact of such an object would not be catastrophic over a wide area.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 is about the same size of the object that exploded in the atmosphere above Siberia in 1908, leveling hundreds of square miles in what scientists now call the "Tunguska Event," NASA officials explained.

Yeomans said an asteroid similar in size to 2012 DA14 slammed into Earth 50,000 years ago to create the famed Meteor Crater in Arizona. But the Meteor Crater asteroid was made of iron, which made its impact especially strong.

When asteroid 2012 DA14 zooms by Earth, NASA scientists will be tracking the space rock closely. The space agency plans to use its Goldstone radar in California's Mojave Desert to follow the asteroid from Feb. 16 to Feb. 20. The observation campaign should help astronomers build a 3D map asteroid 2012 DA14, as well as refine estimates on the space rock's shape, spin and reflectivity, NASA officials said.

Since the object will be moving across the sky so fast, only the most experienced amateur astronomers are likely to catch its close pass. But it could be a challenge.

"The asteroid will be racing across the sky, moving almost a full degree (or twice the width of a full moon) every minute," Yeomans said. "That's going to be hard to track."

Belle Star (1848)

Though her only criminal conviction was for the theft of a horse, Starr associated with numerous
criminals throughout her life and was portrayed after her death as a notorious
American outlaw, earning the nickname "the Bandit Queen." Two of her husbands
were killed in the course of their respective criminal careers, and days before
her 41st birthday, Starr herself was ambushed and shot in the back as she
returned to her Oklahoma ranch. Her murder was never solved. Who were some of
the suspects?

Her murder was never solved. Who were some of

On February 3, 1889, two days before her 41st birthday, she was riding home from a neighbor's house in Eufaula, Oklahoma, when she was ambushed. After she fell off her horse, she was shot again to make sure she was dead. Her death resulted from shotgun wounds to the back and neck and in the shoulder and face. There were no witnesses and no one was ever convicted of the murder. Suspects with apparent motive included her new husband (Jim July Starr) and both of her children (Eddie Reed and Rosie Reed aka Pearl Starr), as well as Edgar J. Watson, one of her sharecroppers, who was afraid she was going to turn him in to the authorities as an escaped murderer from Florida with a price on his head. Watson, who was killed in 1910, was tried for her murder, but was acquitted, and the ambush has entered Western lore as "unsolved". One source suggests her son, whom she had allegedly beaten for mistreating her horse, may have been her killer.

"Expressing one's love to another is a celebrated custom on Valentine's Day;
whereby sweethearts and family members present gifts to one another, such as
cards, candy, flowers and other symbols of affection. Opinions differ as to who
was the original Valentine, but the most popular theory is that he was a
clergyman who was executed for secretly marrying couples in ancient Rome. In
A.D. 496, Pope Gelasius I declared Feb. 14 as Valentine Day. Esther Howland, a
native of Massachusetts, is given credit for selling the first mass-produced
valentine cards in the 1840s. The spirit continues today with even young
children exchanging valentine's cards with their fellow classmates."

Asteroid Flyby: Realtime Coverage - Asteroid 2012 DA14 has
safely passed by Earth, according to NASA. The closest approach was 17,500 miles
above Indonesia. "It has passed closest approach and this asteroid is going
away," said Paul Chodus of the Near Earth Object team. The asteroid is estimated
to be about 150 feet (45 meters) across with an estimated mass of 130,000 metric
tons. Its flyby was the closest ever for an object this large, according to
NASA. Related site

Potato Cannons

Also known as spud guns, potato cannons are inexpensive and often homemade devices that use air pressure
or combustion to launch potatoes—or other projectiles—at high speed. Typically
built and used by hobbyists, potato cannons are usually made of plastic piping,
which is readily available at hardware stores. They are inherently dangerous but
are generally not illegal. Similar devices include hail cannons, bird-scarers,
and chicken cannons, which are used for what specific, practical
purposes?

I've seen propane cannons used to scare birds, to keep them out of vineyards in Vancouver area, and
to keep water fowl out of the tailing ponds up in the oil sands.

They're also used to scare birds away from active runways at military bases.

Today in History

 

The Creation of the Peace Symbol (1958)

Historically, the idea of peace has been represented by symbols that attempt to transcend differences of culture, such as the white dove, the olive branch, and the broken rifle. The now-familiar line-drawing of a crow's
foot in a circle was created specifically for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament by British artist Gerald Holtom, but it quickly caught on as a general, international sign for peace. Holtom has stated that it is derived from
the semaphore flag signals for what two letters?
