An asteroid is approaching Earth – AZERTAC

Baku, January 16 zertaj

NASA maintains a list of “Near-Earth Objects” that can affect our planet. A new celestial body has been listed in the first place for a few days: the asteroid “2022 AE1”.

It was spotted on January 6th. According to NASA, “2022 AE1” has a diameter of about 70 meters. It can hit the ground. There are two possible dates for the effect. The second was introduced in July 2028, and the first will be less distant in the future – it’s July 4, 2023.

The Turin scale and the Palermo scale help with the classification – but that doesn’t mean the condition will happen either. The probability of an impact is given a value of 1 in 1500. There is no acute cause for panic, as many of the main characters appear.

The so-called Palermo Scale provides a scale for sorting near-Earth objects in relation to their danger to Earth. It summarizes the various variables—impact probability, kinetic energy, time remaining until potential impact—into a single number. So how does the Palermo scale assessment work? A value of 0 means that an object has the same probability of impacting the Earth as any other celestial body of the same size or greater. If an asteroid is assigned a value of +2, then this means that the risk of collision is 100 times greater than the risk of collision with a random object. Events with a value between 0 and -2 are unlikely to have consequences for Earth.

The second tool for assessing the risk of an asteroid impact is the Turin Scale. It combines various parameters in one class. Class 0 means. The probability of collision is virtually zero or the object is too small to cause any damage. Class 10 means: collision is certain, global catastrophe is imminent. If you’ve seen the movie “Don’t Look” – it’s close to ten.

“2022 AE1” results 1 of 10 – So how is “2022 AE1” rated? On the Palermo scale, the new asteroid scored -0.89 – remember, negativity is good in this case.

On the Turin scale, experts rated the newcomer at 1. NASA defines it as: “A routine discovery in which an over-ground flight is expected and poses no unusual potential hazard. Current calculations show that the probability of a collision is highly unlikely and there is no cause for public concern or His concern. New telescopic observations are likely to result in a reclassification to level 0.”
