Asteroid on its way to strike earth reported by NASA,

According to NASA an asteroid as larger as two story house named Asteroid 2018 WN. This giant space mainstay is anticipated to skim past Earth advancing to our planet when it zip past at 11.49am GMT. Though NASA astronomers have  calculated the is not on an a route to  smash our world, its disparaging potential is however is overwhelming

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientists presume the asteroid lies somewhere in the range of 12m to 28m

Asteroid 2018 WN may not curse the end of life on earth as we know, but  the lower end of NASA’s evaluate spells possible threat to profoundly inhibited areas

After the 2013 incident in which more 1000 suffer from injuries when a 65ft wide space rock break out over the Russian City, Chelyabinsk

The follow on impact traumatized windows, sending wrecks of glass into victim’s bodies

According to Dr Matija Cuk Cornell University, New York, the effects of smaller asteroid are rare and there are no known case of then being deadly
“ Regarding smaller meteorites that hit the ground, they are not lethal and they didn’t kill anyone yet not even by small meteorites, said by space expert
In 1911 in Nakhla, Egypt a dog was killed by meteorite and there was also possible material damage
“Still, traffic, pollution and even lightening are much damaging than small meteor

Astronomers recently known the presence of hidden asteroid in our galaxy- some of which post a threat to life on earth
University of Madrid researchers  tried to calculate the prospect of huge asteroid fragmenting into smaller pieces which will bash our planet
The product of catastrophic collision are near impossible to track because of their untidy pre-impact orbit
And if an massive asteroid made a trajectory with earth it would leave no time to abandon those in the firing line

The researchers write; “Asteroids may transport meteorites to the inner planet when their path encounter of the planets at the appropriate time, leading to an influence
Meteorites collected after the observation of bright fireballs have occasionally been uncertainly traced back to the near earth object population or collisional event in the main asteroid belt

The scientist debated a current impact by an object named 2018 LA, between 9 to 12ft wide, which hit earth just hours after detection

The asteroid strike Earth’s atmosphere at 38,000 mph, causing horrible fireball streak across the sky over Botswana
According to Lindley Johnson, NASA Planetary Defense Officer “This was a much smaller object than we were tasked to detect and warn about”
Two Spanish researcher in their new paper cautioned that just “three natural object have been discovered before colliding the with the earth
It is likely that 2018 LA formed during a huge collision between two or more rocks in the asteroid belt meaning more meteor are on the way

Stephen Hawking's Final Book gives brief Answers to Big Questions

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

Stephen started his book last year to answer the common question which he encountered many times from public. The title of the book is ''Brief Answers to Big Questions''.

His daughter, Lucy Hawking, said he was regularly asked for such question and this book contains his clear and most authentic answers. We all wish he was here to see it published, she added.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?

Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Human flights to ISS will begin in 2019

NASA has confirmed that manned space flight will be carried by SpaceX and Boeing in the mid of 2019.SpaceX rocket for ISS will depart in June 2019 while Boeing spacecraft will go in August 2019.
It will be the first US mission since the retirement of the shuttle in 2011.NASA's astronauts are currently using Russian made Soyuz spacecraft and its contract will end in June 2019.NASA said on 4th of the October that it will give monthly updates 

Phil McAlister who is the director of commercial flights in NASA said in Blog that 

New Updates schedule is better but launch schedule may be uncertainHe also said these are new spacecraft and lot of engineering work has to be done before take off.

Back in 2014 both the SpaceX and Boeing received $6.8bn from NASA to build spacecraft that will take humans to ISS.

Boeing has said they will be ready for Orbital Flight Test in March 2019.
The Success of this manned space shuttle will be a great achievement of the commercial space industry, and NASA will …

The Mystery of ISS leak

A leak was found on Russian made Soyuz MS-09 Spacecraft on International Space Station by Astronauts which caused loss of oxygen on 30 Aug. First, it was thought it was due to a Meteorite hit to ISS but Russia rejected saying this leak was man-made.

Recently NASA's head Jim Bridenstine said that investigations will be done soon to determine the cause of leak to ISS which caused a brief deficiency of Oxygen to astronauts there. He also rejected the rumor that the U.S is trying to pull back Russia from ISS.

He further added;
"I strongly believe we're going to get the right answer to what caused the hole on the International Space Station and that together we'll be able to continue our strong collaboration,What we've got to do is we've got to very dispassionately allow the investigation to go forward without speculation, without rumor, without innuendo, without conspiracy." Russian agency said they will not accept any mythical reason until solid proof given…
