"eight billion kilometers" Discussed on SpaceTime with Stuart Gary

"Tori is seen in the southern night skies as the more distant of the two point stars from the southern cross. The system consists of three stars. This office story a in bay which each other and proxima centauri which opened the pair and four point two five light is distant is currently the closest out of the earth other than the sun like the sun office story as a spectral type g yellow dwarf star. It's about ten percent more massive than the sun and around fifty percent more luminous it's binary office tori be is a type k orange dwarf star a little smaller cooler than the sun with about ninety percent of the sun's mass and about half its luminosity alpha centauri a and b orbit each other around a common center of gravity every seventy nine point nine hundred earth years at between eleven point two and thirty five point. Six astronomical units an astronomical unit is the average distance between the earth and the sun about one hundred and fifty million kilometres or eight point. Three line minutes. There isn't between the two stars varies from about that between pluto and the sun and satin the sun. The third star in the system is proxima centauri. It's a spiritual type. M red dwarf star with a better seventh diameter and about an eighth mass of the sun. It's loosely gravitationally bound to alpha centauri a and b orbiting the pair and average distance of around thirteen thousand astronomical units or bad zero point two. Why is the put that another way. It's about four hundred and thirty times. The size of niche over around the sun it takes proxima centauri approximately five hundred and fifty thousand years to orbit alpha centauri a in bay in two thousand sixteen. Astronomers confirmed the existence of an earth sized terrestrial planet orbiting in the habitable zone around proxima centauri making it the nearest known extra solar or exo planet to earth the planet notice proxima b. is a super earth with about one point three times earth's mass it orbits proximus and tori and average distance of zero point zero five astronomical units. It's about seven and a half million kilometers and because proxima centauri's a red dwarf. That happens to be in the stars habitable zone. The region around us with temperatures would allow liquid water central for life as we know it to on terrestrial planet surface proxima b. takes just eleven days to complete one orbit around its toaster. That's far close to the mercury's eighty eight earth day orbit around the sun then in two thousand nine hundred twenty. Astronomers combined several independent measurements to confirm the existence of a second planet around proxima centauri the new planet proxima see as about seven times the mass of earth and circles a toast our at a distance of one and a half astronomical units with an orbital period of one thousand nine hundred and seven earth days. And now this office story. As new planetary candidate won it was the using a newly developed. Mid infrared krona graph excite planet imaging system developed by the european southern observatory and physicist yuri milner breakthrough watch initiative. It allows astronomers to directly capture images of exoplanets about three times the size of the earth within the habitable zone of nearby stars by blocking out most the lot coming from that star and it's optimized to capture infrared wavelengths signatures emitted by the warm surface of an orbiting planet and now with the discovery made. The real work begins trying to confirm it. This space time still to come confirmation of what could be the solar system's most distant planetary object and what the moon phobos could tell us about the red planet mauve all that and more coming up on space time. Astronomers may have just set a new record for identifying what looks like the most distant body now solar system the object officially designated as two thousand eighteen eighty thirty seven and unofficially named far far out is orbiting the sun at a distance of nineteen point eight billion kilometers that some four times further out than pluto and about one hundred thirty two astronomical units. It's will beyond the helium. Pause the theoretical boundary with a sun solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium judah still lewin's from surrounding stars at one hundred twenty one and a half astronomical units that's been the officially designated badge of our solar system and once the is one and two spacecraft past that point birth will consider to have left the solar system and flying through interstellar space initial estimate suggests that firefighter out. It's a great name isn't it is about four hundred wide. It was first detected in two thousand. Eighteen and scientists have collected enough observations to pin down. At least out of its orbit. Suffer routes name clearly distinguishes it from the previous record holder. Fire out which is found by the same team of astronomers also. In two thousand eighteen the newly discovered object is a highly elongated all of it ranging from as much as one hundred and seventy five astronomical units down to around twenty seven astronomical units which is just inside the orbit of neptune around the sun. Father routes journey around the sun is estimated to take around a thousand years crossing neptune's orbit every time and that means that it's probably experienced strong gravitational interactions with neptune over the age of the solar system. And it could be the reason why it has such an elongated orbit. Five was discovered by the eight meter subaru telescope atop monaco in hawaii with additional observations made using the gym and i northern magellan telescopes in order to better define its orbit based on it slow motion across the sky. This space time still to come. What the moon. Ferber's could reveal about the red planet mars and a new skyguide for jeremy buffs in the southern hemisphere. Only come on space time. That is found that. The martian moon phobos orbits through a stream of charged particles being eroded from the red planet's atmosphere by the solar wind the findings based on data from this as mars atmosphere in volatile evolutional maven spacecraft suggests that these particles could be building up on phobos surface thereby providing a record of the past mush atmosphere. Mavens orbit crosses four buses orbit around five times a day and it super thermal in thermal ion composition instrument or static measures martian ions info buses environment static measures the connecticut aegean velocity of incoming particles thereby allowing us jeronimus determined the mass and consequently what types of particles they are astronomers identified charged particles including ions of oxygen carbon nitrogen and on which had been escaping the martian atmosphere for billions of years as a report in the journal nature science suggests that if the regular from foe boss were analyzed in labs on earth. It could reveal cain formation about the evolution of the martian atmosphere today. Mars is a freeze dried desert less than one percent of the atmospheric density of the earth but roll the clock back four billion years and the red planet warm wet world with a thick atmosphere. Eh one capable of supporting life for bus is the larger of the two minutes orbiting is the origin of the to martian moons. Remains a topic of great debate among astronomers with a hypothesis that they both captured asteroids being the leading contender for now just twenty two kilometers wide. I hope it's the red planet. At a distance of just six thousand kilometers and like the earth's mood fergus is tidally locked to mars with the same side always facing the planet so the regular on the knees side of boss has been bay th for millennia in marsh and atoms and molecules the data from even suggested between twenty and one hundred times. More martian ions would've coated the near side of the moon compared to the far side. That makes it a potentially rich scientific harvest which the japan aerospace the exploration agency jaksa hopes to secure with its upcoming amex or myers moons expiration. Sample return mission. Amy makes slated for launch in twenty twenty four collecting. A drill core sample of four buses regular would allow astronomers to see how the masha atmosphere and its climate have evolved and will also help resolve that question about the true original phobos will to find out more andrew dunkley speaking with astronomer professor fred watson what was mas like before its atmosphere was kind of you know unable to hold it. Hold its integrity. I think i think that would be the best way to describe it. The most highly supported view is that there was a time in moses distant past probably three point eight to four billion years ago when its atmosphere was essentially woman wet very likely this atmosphere with an average temperature about fifteen degrees celsius over the whole planet with plenty of moisture in the air and on the ground because the overwhelming evidence is that miles had river flows had lakes eight had sees. The northern hemisphere is very flat and very smooth was a large body of water. There sometime in the past the only thing that changed that view is the idea that maybe some of these water features could have been formed underneath huge glaciers. So that you've got this sort of almost lights. Noble house but with the river rivers made of milwaukee effectively flowing the threes sheets. So that's a slightly new ideas. Scott some support but i think the overwhelming view is still sometime even if it might have been only for brief periods of warm and wet climate. The trouble as do you probe into mazdas climate and that's where it begins because there isn't i be able to do so or are they looking at ways of doing so. Yeah it's it's a future possibility but one this really intriguing and with good reason to believe that this will be very successful venture when it finally gets going so we know from a spacecraft already. Nobody around the house is called marvin or maven somewhere. I've got hit the akron which is mars atmosphere and volatile evolution. The you are. You've got to stick the travel but mars atmosphere volatile evolution. What it means is sensing. The upper atmosphere of mars been there for six years actually collecting data but one of the things. That maven has uncovered. Is that there is a flow of actually charged particles what we call ions in science iowan s which particles that have lost electrons and these particles of oxygen carbon nitrogen argon. These have been coming off the surface of mars for billions of years maven detected. I've seen results from those detections which really interesting. But i watch new and this is the work that we're talking about today. It's actually come from university of california berkeley and other institutions. What's new is the recognition that those islands. Those charged particles found their way not just into space but also onto the surface of mars largest moon a larger moon there only two which is phobos phobos and objects thirty forty kilometers across really interesting in. Its own right because it's got the very low density probably something a bit like pumice in. Its ooh makeup and space sciences. That sure where it came from and how it got to be like it is but the bottom line is that phobos is in the flow of these islands and they will essentially deposit on the surface of loss which is not subject to any other kind of phenomena apart from radiation from the sun which is well understood and you can deal with that so the suggestion that has been made as that a future spacecraft could go to phobos and collect samples from its surface them bring them back they might tell us not only about the origin the phobos butts the material come from particularly if and this is the crux of the mission if you landed the spacecraft on the side of phobos always face. his mom's christmas four bosses like it always has the same face long-term tightly locked exactly in fact it's even more tightly locked in the move because phobos is actually sixty times closer to buzz for the moonies to the earth. it's very very closely actually with israel. One of the curious things about bosses. It's all it'll period is so short cut remember. It's a matter of hours. So short that phobos rises in the west and sets in the east which must be quite entertaining to watch these things. Do things the other way around. Anyway if you send a space probe to land on the mouse facing side of boston bring back samples. It is just possible that what you might get his Timeline history of the atmosphere of mars. Which might tell us what the atmosphere was like in these ages ago these times three point eight four billion years ago when mars is thought to have been warm and now the good news to this story is that there is already a spacecraft plan to do that. We've got to ask you. yeah jackson. The aerospace exploration agency. They have something called. Mx annex is a conduct information moves exploration. It's approved this going. To focus the is that it will collect samples from its surface of bringing back to. The japanese are very good at that. They've done it twice with asteroid samples. We've we've seen the the the most recent one landing australia. The end of two thousand twenty from the high. The two spacecraft took two emission with a high chance of success would be very very interesting. Brilliant if we could just to the vote can a book archive of past fear of mars. That says yes back in three point. Eight billion years before the common era. Mas this this climate is particular level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That's basically what you're looking for because that will be what kept warm so it's fantastic possibility. Supposed what mystifies may to a certain degree is how was that. Mas was able to mind tying for some period of time a wit warm environment. And then it couldn't i mean what changed or was it. Just you know. It was always destined to file. It was because it's too small to hold onto a thick atmosphere so this another aspect to it as well and that's that it doesn't have a magnetic field but these are the two factors they'd come about because mas is small smaller than the earth by too so it's time it's his half. The diameter of the earth dot means call would have cooled much more rapidly than the earth's core has done that means that there will be no chance of supporting plate tectonics which is one of the crucial things that stabilizes atmosphere in fact would have stabilized mars atmosphere plate. Tectonics are driven by internal heat. There is some evidence from sort of residual magnetic field on mass here and there that look so they might informed around the boundaries of continental place. But they must have solidified very very long time ago because we believe the marci's his cross these now so have continuous like an orange and orange peel and we believe it's been like that for a long time. Because that's the explanation. As to how. Mazda's volcanoes gruesome particularly months of east volcano in the solar system is because there was no plate tectonic shuffling around over the the nine till hotspot. That was driving as the hawaiian islands have done. They've moved around above the hot spot. So you've got these chain of islands. They're still mounted k. Still the biggest mountain in the world when he recognized from the sea floor. It's nothing like olympics martin's and olympia. Small thoughts have got to that size because there is no plate tectonics so plate tectonics one of the things that stabilizes the carbon in an atmosphere but if you get rid of that then you've got this risk of losing the atmosphere disgrace plus the fact that as a said mouse does not have a magnetic field so it doesn't have a my greatest fear protecting it from the radiation of the sun and not too is a driver for the evaporation of atmosphere. So if he probably lost his wall atmosphere quite early on in the piece but the trickiest to go to mars with them makes them find out me we will. Yeah so it would have developed that warm wet atmosphere while it had a Continental tectonics and warm interior but as that cooled off and everything sort of set in stone literally with him to do this. Dr watson and astronomy with the department of science speaking with andrew. Dunkley sister program space knots. And this is space. Time still to come the twenty twenty one. Australasian sky guides being released providing its annual tour across the night skies and later in the science report. And you study finds that people hospitalized with covid nineteen a still likely to show some symptoms for months later all that and much more still to come.

"The first pristine samples of an asteroid have been safely returned to earth with japan. Aerospace exploration agencies high butcha to re entry capsule parachuting down onto the woomera rocket range in outback south australia. The capsule was seen streaking across the sky of essential australia. In the lead to its touchdown the early hours of sunday morning and crew aboard the international space station also reported seeing the fireball during the re entry once safely back on the ground the reentry capture was quickly located by helicopter mounted recovery teams from the australian space agency and jaksa launched back in december. Twenty fourteen on an h. To a rocket of the tengiz sheamus space center south of tokyo. I butcher to arrived at the near earth asteroid riot in june twenty eighteen. The probes but eighteen months studying the kilometer wide diamond shaped asteroid sending down four small land aerobics to explore the surface. However the primary goal of the mission was sample return. Both from the surface and from deep down material hadn't been subjected to space weathering the first of two planned surface. Sample collection operations were so successful collecting. Quite a significant amount of regular the plan second attempt was eventually cancelled sampling involved firing a small projectile into the surface to kick up some debris ejector which was then retrieved by a catcher on the spacecraft that collecting material from david down inside the asteroid involved the far bigger impact that was fired by a small spacecraft deployed by. The high was attuned mothership which should move to a safe location. During the firing sequence and impact the impact excavated a huge crater ten meters wide exposing pristine material which was then collected by high butcher to its mission. Completed high was a two part of the asteroid in november two thousand nineteen for the three hundred million kilometer journey back to earth and on saturday at a distance of two hundred twenty thousand kilometers from the earth. High bush to really states flying-saucer-shaped sample return capsule at an altitude of one hundred and twenty kilometres forty centimeter wide. Captial hit the that is for at twelve kilometers per second protected by tate. Yield it successfully deployed. It's red reflective parachute and To ten kilometers. Ejecting its chilled and transmitting a position. Bacon signal allowing recovery teams to quickly retrieve the spacecraft and its valuable cargo. Meanwhile high busta to retains enough fuel for a follow on mission. Jack is now targeted. A high speed fly by the apollo group asteroid two thousand and one c. Twenty-one that slated for july twenty twenty six and there'll be a rendezvous with the near earth asteroid nineteen ninety eight k y twenty six in july twenty thirty one doctor really sanson from the universities. Desert fiber network was part of a team of scientists in south australia for the spacecraft's return to work following. It's three point. Eight billion kilometer journey. She says the four point. Five billion year old samples contained in the re entry capsule provide new clues about the origins of amino acids the building blocks of proteins. Essential for life as we know it exactly on time glowing just about the horizon. Doctors getting brighter and brighter and dreams. I've had this gorgeous tail as it kind of flew off into the southeast and we were stationed at I was stationed at cuba. Pd and it was amazing to watch. Did many the luck was by the having a look. I mean there are pretty rough mov. Add pedia bain there and see any place with a drive round with the woods explosives over their trucks because they carrying explosives for the athol mining. How many like around to what. We were Stationed quite far out of town to get away from the light pollution of pd so our team actually had nine stations of highway to observe this event from from different position to try and get an idea of what was happening to stop at the the middle and and i'm a member of the desert fiber network to the. I'm you have cameras across australia. Designed to take pictures of these. She's things that we could file and read it. I've never seen one myself in real life so this is amazing experience to see in person not for my screen. Of course. this wasn't really a five on the sense. That was a meteo. this was a human made. Object returning to earth are the dynamics similar they actually come through the atmosphere very similar. And that's basically what we were out trying to do with us. On scene is to use this amazing event from jackson actually test out our science for natural so we have cameras straight taking pictures of these bibles that from different positions. We can figure out where these they trucks are coming through our atmosphere and from the different positions. We can get an idea of that trajectory and figure out where something might land on the ground. Dmitri which is pretty cool the other thing we can do is we can backtrack figure out what and associates. It came from and we have lots of data and we have recovered matrix. We know that side work but we don't have very many cases of figuring out how well we can calculate all the and this is an amazing example that we can use that we knew exactly when it was coming in we could have everything set up we could take images. Can we can now use this the test. How well we can calculate the army. And what sort of equipment did you bring with you for something like this. He actually had a lot of stuff out. Had over fifty pieces of equipment out bet and not only from identifiable network team take pictures and video but we actually were had an incredibly on to begin the responsibility actually performing science on behalf of our japanese colleagues able to come over australia because this is something all these instruments that we had planned been planned over a year and then as we've been going through the year we've been be a plan b c. And i think we're on food g or something find now that we had size moments out. There had schooled. In for sound basically microphones the both the seismic and the imf sound. We're listening to the finals. They were trying to listen that. Sonic boom when something coming in at twelve comas. The second is going to create. It comes through the atmosphere and we had quite a few those old way. Almost you highway. Like i said actually off the definable event also. I think that was the most incredible part about it was sitting. I really really quietly about five minutes waiting to see if we could hear the sonic boom with our news. And i wasn't expecting to be able to but but we did and it was really really cool it was like someone that's a mind blah copier columbus's away and that was amazing as well so it wasn't a crack like you normally get when a spacecraft comes down get a double crack. It wasn't like very similar. Is it very similar concept you. You're getting the sonic boom from that. What we call a hypersonic. It might even supersonic hypersonic trajectory as as it's coming in but that's actually a really good question that we don't know sonic boom was going to do different points in the trajectory is. It can be a double bang. Is it going to be a single bang. Are we going to be able to hear tool and off patient in cuba. Beauty hood it but The those stationed up in malla didn't and those station qubit the down in bombay didn't either so that's why we had these sensors all the way along so we can actually try and maybe characterize what actually happening we also had some. Uhs receivers so just listening to the radio waves so any who radio away being transmitted by the plasma basically budding atmosphere behind this captial to see if we could we could see that in the radio the yeah we had quite a few things out that and it was. It was quite nerve racking because we've been given amazing responsibility out this equipment. How colleagues and it was quite stressful. Hoping that We've done a good job. But.

"Of the voyager two spacecraft. The agency's seventy mehta camera deep space network radio dish. The only antenna capable of contacting the forty three year old spacecraft successfully set a series of commands to the probe the dish officially known as deep space station forty three has been undergoing a major upgrade and refurbishment since mid march with the dish out of action mission managers could receive data from voyager two through the three thirty four meter wide radio antennas at the camera complex but couldn't send commands to the far-flung probe which is now lift our solar system and he's flying through interstellar space among the upgrades to the ds's forty-three dish with tinny radio transmitters one of them which is used to talk to void you to hasn't been replaced in more than forty seven years engineers have also upgraded heating and cooling equipment for the electronics. The power supply equipment and other technology needed to run the new transmitters. The successful cold avoid the to is just one indication that the dish will be back online showed in february next year located knee camera. The antennas part of a network of three radio antenna ground stations. The other two being goldstone in california and madrid in spain the network up primarily used to communicate with spacecraft operating beyond earth orbit the position of the three facilities around the planet ensures that almost any spacecraft line of sight with earth can communicate with at least one facilities at anytime voice to is a rare exception launched in nineteen seventy seven just days before its twin void you won the spacecraft was designed to achieve nothing lists than the grand tour of the outer solar system visiting the gas giants jupiter and saturn and the ice giants. You're innocent neptune. In order to make it close fly. By of neptune's moon triton in one thousand nine hundred nine the probe flew over the planet's north pole the gravitational impact of that dejected deflected it southwards relative to the plan of the planets. And it's been heading in that direction. Out of the solar system and interstellar space ever since now more than eighteen point eight billion kilometers from earth the voyager two spacecraft e so fast south it no longer has line of sight with radio antennas in northern hemisphere. So this is forty. Three's the only dish in the southern hemisphere with a transmitter powerful enough and that broadcasts at the right frequencies to send commands to the distant spacecraft voyages fast moving twin void. You one took a different path past satin and can communicate through the antennas at the to dsm facilities in the northern hemisphere. The antennas need uplift commands to both voyagers in radio frequency range code s band and the antennas downlink data from the spacecraft in a range known as the x band. The probes are constantly sending back science data from interstellar space that is the region of the galaxy immediately outside the sun's helius fear. The protective bubble of product was a magnetic field created by the sun that surrounds the pilots and the copperbelt a collection of small icy bodies beyond the orbit of neptune. This forty-three began operating back. In one thousand nine hundred seventy two five years before the launch of the voyage attune voyager one spacecraft back then. It was only sixty four meters wide the same size as the packs radio telescope dish. It was expanded to seventy meters in nineteen eighty seven and received a variety of upgrades and modifications since then the is overseeing the counter. Work say this is being one of the most significant makers the dishes received and the longest. It's been off line in thirty years. Philip baldwin operations manage if nasa space communications and navigation program says the assist forty-three antenna is a highly specialized system. He says there are only two other similar. Antennas in the world so having the antenna down for a full year's not an ideal situation for voyager or any other major s emissions currently in operation. The camera deep space. Communications network complex is managed by the ceasefire siro on behalf of nasa complex spokesperson. Glenn nagel says. The refurbishment of dc's forty-three will benefit other missions including nasr's mars perseverance rosa which will land on the red planet on february eighth next year. And the upcoming optimists missions which will return humans to the surface of the moon. Twenty twenty four and eventually onto mars part of the ongoing upgrade. Or how big seventy made a dish one of those with that that we could send commanding through the voice of food place craft that again tenant they spray the only intern around the world have bullet doing and why is it. The anyone that can reach voyage to avoid you just space craft and kind of neptune back in nineteen ninety nine. Victory took southwood below the ecliptic plane. And so come now by. Yeah the in out there in california literally. The earth is in the waste so they're able to see that by take the thirty four dishes simply aren't big enough not capable to transmit with high power transition type ability like still can receive if we combined two of them their data from georgia to we've still they never for the last eight months that we've been off line since manning's so now it's forty three half the facts online speaking send those bottled commands again. And what was the refurbishment done to the big dish joining upgrade equipment that has been operating on ten and a further four years. But some of the transmitters were in that device group. And i desperately need all been up right so we built two new high palestine's minutes to the dinner. One of those needed for the void vice crop other it will be used for future missions of mazar humans to the moon and so on and also played electrical pride house cooling systems Refurbishment of the pedestals basically a top to bottom inside out an afraid of the ditch. And what. People don't often realize especially australian listening. Because i hear a lot about the cease iras pox radio telescope the sixty four minute dish. They this was actually bigger. The given bill affecting station is the largest in southern hemisphere. Seventy majors in about the twenty two story building and just the dish moving structure. Why some full thousand. Tom physically moods with position. Any quietness guy communicate. Spice pops hundreds of millions billions of kilometers. Why is the refurbishment process of big job has been the entire project is eleven months for the upright. Does the end. Santa the eight months which might be named tactic by things like sizes and other bush flies. Taxes of twenty twenty Has entailed a hundred and fifty people different contractors around engineers technicians expert. Coming out from the pulsing labs in pasadena california. Polls do this work on this. Really great workforce of the nation. How big dishes hambro now. Literally this sort of thing have been working dying not seven days a week. They get the antennas where it is now and so also make sure complete. Do back online. I already to joke with some of the missions. Bribing mas in february next year to get those next few months already because perseverance just past the halfway mockup beliefs. Yes that's correct so we continue to track on own journey. Demand north side of the nodded arab emirates missions. Pope this is also going to miles around the same time period planning on the surface. Tell us about tidbinbilla old. The digs network camera station as as nasa coolest. The camera date by communication complex. Of course is part of nafta states by three stations around the planet that probably about the will the provide twenty four seven communications. They're all dozens of robotic missions that are solar system folks when we talk about where we're talking about things hundred thousand kilometers and beyond so there are networks handle the much closer stops and there's been satellites and she a stationary stuff like really candle. Everything else but you is now backyards so like the i have these antennas around.

"Effectively, we've got the TNT thirty meter telescope coming up, we've got the LT, the European extremely large telescope, which will have a mirror thirty, nine meters in diameter that will far outstrip the Hubble in terms of the detail it we'll see because of this adaptive optics technique. So we figured out how to essentially eliminate the deleterious effects of the atmosphere. That's that's. The blurring there is one effect that you can't get rid of though that is that the atmosphere absorbs wavelengths in particular in the ultraviolet. That's one of the great strengths of the. Telescope S- above the atmosphere. So it's very sensitive to the ultra violets. Region of the spectrum and you can't deal with on the ground. You've got to go into space for that and maybe the moon maybe mas. Eight it's probably cheaper to put something in orbit around the Earth or in orbit around the Sun, which is what we've been doing. But eventually when you know when humans are a woking on Mars. In woking on the move, we probably will have telescopes that to. So. When we do ultimately have telescopes might be on the moon maybe on. Mars. If they do go that way, will it make much difference to APP perspective as we say things from Earth, given the skype and size of the universe will. Be Now miniscule variation. Yes Y- The sitting on Mazdas. The same was sitting on the of his father's the universe is concerned. Because even not even far enough really to see a difference in the positions of the nearby stars. There is one there's been one example those great question drew. About some two months ago new horizons, the new horizon spacecraft observed. A star which was simaltaneously observed from Earth and the the baseline of those two observations because new horizons is now I can't remember how fine seven or eight billion kilometers away. So they got a huge baseline. For for what we feel power measurement, the idea that you're looking from one position and another two to see how a star a nearby star changes relative to his background, and so some of the was both Southern Hemisphere Star under northern hemisphere observed with those observations. Remarkable could see the difference because the spacecraft is so far away from Earth. Interesting very good and Ozzy, thanks for the question. The short answer is yes. We could have just done that despise, but wouldn't have been nearly as interesting but appreciate the question thanks for throwing it up Now, let's move on to our next question from will in Phoenix. Outright. My name is. Phoenix Arizona, Arizona United.

"But it certainly is exciting to me. It's exciting because we see this new measurement. I'm a black hole size. Depth of what it may be. And. I was reading the diameter of this is thirty eight billion kilometers. And the black hole, spins clockwise, m eighty seven. They're calling it the monster. It's a supermassive black hole. It's a massive black hole by eighty black holes standards. And it's the first image. It's a sign in the heavens again. Where we're told that signs in the heavens, certainly are things to be aware of so many things were reported today that I just don't know where to begin and. We have such special guests to that on the program. I can't hold back. I'll be lobe is going to be on the program tonight. It's first ever radio interview on a show like this show. I guess it's it's. Quite amazing because of all the. Interesting things transpired since October twenty seventeen when we first saw the messenger, I saw Rama when we first saw a momoa. Is object that came in from interstellar space in the war? I read in the more.

The first time we've realized that something. Something amazing is happening space. Something wonderful is happening in space. Black holes are quite literally hard to see their gravity is. So extreme that nothing not even light can escape across the boundary at a black holes edge, and that of course is the event horizon. And my gosh, I saw another headline today that gave me the chills somebody said that the event horizon is literally the gates of hell that when you're looking into the abyss where you're looking into that black hole. You are seeing what would be considered the gates unto hell. But it's of course, is nothing more than fuzzy asymmetrical ring out in space for the first time. We've seen the dark abyss of one of the universe's. Most mysterious objects. Being shown to us. And just think of what it is. And it does live up to the hype I would say because this image aligns with the expectations of what a black hole should look like based on Einstein's general theory of relativity, which predicts house space-time is warped by the street massive black hole. And so this picture that's going around Google made a big deal out of it. This picture that is going around the internet right now. Is one puzzle piece, but it is is a strong piece of evidence supporting the existence of black holes. And of course, it helps to verify general relativity. And the only thing that I regret is the season Hawking's not alive to see this. He would so excited to see this. I'm sure. And so we're saying area where perhaps general relativity would likely breakdown or. I'm not much of a astrophysicists by any stretch of the imagination. But it certainly is exciting to me.

"Okay. Let's take a break from our show now for a word from our sponsor the great courses. Plus I know that you love looney about the mysteries of the universe just as much as I do, which is why I now you'll love the great courses plus with the great courses. Plus you get unlimited access to fascinating audio and video lectures on thousands of topics presented by award-winning professors and experts. You can dive deeper into string theory find out about dot meta dwarf planets or explore. Other interests, like history of photography courses is being added all the time. So there's always something new to learn, even joy, watching or listening to these lectures. Anyway, anytime with the great courses plus app available in both IOS and Android, I just been listening to black holes tides and curved space time, understanding gravity. It's presented by the brilliant professor of physics, duct Benjamin shoemaker. It's just great the way he takes complicated theories and breaks them down into easy to understand Lang. Guage and each lecture run through about thirty minutes. So it's not too taxing on the brain, and you'll come away with a better understanding of how gravity affects our lives in the science. We see so many ways or enjoy any of it. Ten thousand other lectures without special offer a free trial with unlimited access to their entire library. So get started now by signing up without special URL that way, they know you came from us and you'll be hoping I'll show sign up for your free trial at the great courses plus dot com slash space. That's the great courses plus dot com slash space. And of course, will include the URL the show notes, the great courses plus dot com slash space. And now back to our show. You're listening to space time space time with Stewart, Gary. After a genuine lasting almost two years Nashes Cyrus wreck spacecraft is finally caught sight of its target, the near-earth asteroid Banou and is now beginning its final approach. The probe will arrive at Banou on December third Cyrus, Rix. He's Nashes first mission to a near earth. Asteroid. It'll survey the surface, collect samples and deliver the samples back to worth. The name is Cyrus. Rix stands for Arjun spectral interpretation resource identification security regular explorer, the two thousand one hundred ten kilograms spacecraft has traveled. Approximately one point, eight billion kilometers since its launch abort an Alice five rocket from the Cape Canaveral. If we'll station in Florida back on September, the eight th twenty sixteen the Cyrus Rix principal investigator professor Dan Taylor Reta from the university of Arizona says, now that the spacecraft's close enough to observe Banou the mission team will spend the next few months learning as much as they can. About the asteroid size shape, surface features and surroundings the boosted. So from the bananas orbital plane Asaraha's Rex performed a slingshot maneuver gravity assist around the earth eleven months ago. The spacecraft's now fly almost fifty two thousand kilometers per hour relative to the earth, and he's closing in on Banou at around two thousand kilometers per hour relative to the asteroid. The probes Polycom camera obtained its first images of Banou at a distance of two point, three million kilometers Polycom is so named because it's poly functional. It is two jobs. One is the long range acquisition camera, and the second reconnaissance camera wants. The spacecraft gets close to Banou obtaining the first visual tag of the steroids meticulously planned ever since the early development of the mission. Almost every action. The spacecraft executes is preceded by a nine week planning process that consists of program development. Multiple tests in reviews before the Kurds finally uploaded to the spacecraft. By way of Nasr's deep space communications network. And once the spacecraft's begun, executing a command is very little. If any ground communications involved. In fact, when a Cyrus Rex, rich, the predetermined position on that strategic diary and turned on its camera for a series of thirty exposures. The asteroid was exactly where mission planners predicted it would be weeks earlier right now Banou just looks like a star, a single point light source, but all that will dramatically changed by mid-november. When mission managers begin detail. Observations, looking for criticism boulders as a Cyrus. Rex approaches the asteroid space craft will use it science instruments together, more information about Banou to prepare for its arrival in addition to the camera sweet. The craft science payload also includes a thermal spectrometer, a visible and infrared spectrometer. A laser altimeter and an x Ray spectrometer. During the mission's approach phase Cyrus, Rex will observe the area around the asteroid searching for dust plumes natural satellites and studying the news. Light and spectral properties. It'll also executed series of four asteroid approach maneuvers beginning October, the first slowing the spacecraft in order to match Banou speed and trajectory. It'll vengeance in the protective cover of the spacecraft sapling. I'm in mid-october and extend an image the for the first time in flight by late October Cyrus. Rex will use it science instruments to reveal the asteroids of raw shape, and it should begin detecting Banou surface features by mid-november after its arrival at the no. Besides Rex was spend the first month performing fly bys of bananas, North Pole, equator and south pole at distances, ranging from seven to nine hundred kilometers above the asteroid surface. These maneuvers will also allow the first direct measurements of Benin's mass as well as close up observations of surface and these trajectories will also provide mission navigation, team members with experience navigating the of the asteroid. You see the news, low gravity will provide a unique challenge for the mission. At just four hundred ninety two meters diameter Banou. We'll be the smallest object that any spacecraft has ever orbited the probe will extensively survey the asteroid before mission managers identify two possible sample sites, sample collection slated for July twenty twenty with a spacecraft. Then heading back towards earth before ejecting the sample return capsule for landing in the Utah does it in September twenty twenty three provisionally name nineteen thousand nine nine occupy thirty six and now formerly cataloged as ten nine hundred fifty five Banou the name of mythological Egyptian bird.

Earth about once every one hundred thirty thousand years. The two thousand and ten amical study predicted a series of eight potential impacts by Banou between twenty one sixty nine and twenty one nine thousand nine. The cumulative probability of impact is dependent on the physical properties of Banou. There were pulling at the time but will find not to exceed zero point zero seven, one percent for all eight encounters the authors of that study recognized that an accurate assessment of the news probability of earth impact would require a detailed shape muddle as well as additional observations in order to determine the magnitude and direction of any kofsky affect. The kofsky effect is caused by sunlight. Warming the day side surface of a rotating body such as an asteroid as the asteroid revolves.
