Earth vs. asteroids: humans strike back


Bild/Foto

Bild/Foto

Incoming asteroids have been scarring our home planet for billions of years. This month humankind left our own mark on an asteroid for the first time: Japan’s Hayabusa2 spacecraft dropped a copper projectile at very high speed in an attempt to form a crater on asteroid Ryugu. A much bigger asteroid impact is planned for the coming decade, involving an international double-spacecraft mission.

Getting ready to chart sea level


Bild/Foto

Bild/Foto

Records show that, on average, global sea level rose by 3.2 mm a year between 1993 and 2018, but hidden within this average is the fact that the rate of rise has been accelerating over the last few years. Taking measurements of the height of the sea surface is essential to monitoring this worrying trend – and the Copernicus Sentinel-6 mission is on the way to being ready to do just this.

Pictured, the dark central region is not the event horizon

Aha! I always felt the typical representation of a black hole was mistaken, that all the material falling into it from all directions would glow and radiate while still outside the Schwarzschild Radius and thus we would see a glowing disk area, not a circular black space. That black dot in the middle does not have the radius of the black hole but is a narrow area where lensing and other gravitational effects make the surrounding glowing gas invisible along the direct path between us and the black hole.
