Giant Asteroid hitting on Earth by March 16, 2880 to wipe out humans

asteroid 1950 DA

Scientist says Asteroid 1950 DA will be hitting on Earth on March 16, 2880, and its potential destruction is so huge that will wipe out humans on Earth.

The asteroid will follow a trajectory path that will cross planet Earth on the specified date. Once it hit the Earth surface, it could be the largest asteroid that brought permanent damage to all living and non-living things.

The discovery was made by researchers at the University of Tennessee (UT), Knoxville. Ben Rozitis, a postdoctoral researcher; Eric MacLennan, a doctoral candidate; and Joshua Emery, an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, although they believes that asteroid will disintegrate and break apart but this one keeps it from breaking and possible hitting the Earth surface, and the target is the Atlantic Ocean forming giant tsunami that brought unprecedented destruction.

‘We found that 1950 DA is rotating faster than the breakup limit for its density,’ said Rozitis.

‘So if just gravity were holding this rubble pile together, as is generally assumed, it would fly apart. Therefore, interparticle cohesive forces must be holding it together.’

‘Following the February 2013 asteroid impact in Chelyabinsk, Russia, there is renewed interest in figuring out how to deal with the potential hazard of an asteroid impact,’ said Professor Rozitis.

Facts about Asteroid 1950 DA

The asteroid, named 1950 DA, is a rock two-thirds of a mile in diameter, travelling at about 15 km (nine miles) per second relative to the Earth.

It is approximately 3,280ft (1,000 metres) in diameter, but rotates once every two hours and six minutes.

At this rate, the rock should break apart and eventually disintegrate, but it is not showing any signs of doing so.

In fact, the rotation is so fast that at its equator, 1950 DA effectively experiences negative gravity.

If an astronaut were to attempt to stand on this surface, he or she would fly off into space unless he or she were somehow anchored.

The presence of cohesive forces has been predicted in small asteroids, but definitive evidence has never been seen before.

It is due to swing so close to Earth it could slam into the Atlantic Ocean at 38,000 miles per hour.

It is estimated that if 1950 DA were to collide with the planet, it would do so with an force of around 44,800 megatonnes of TNT.

Although the probability of an impact is only 0.3 per cent, this represents a risk 50 per cent greater than an impact from all other asteroids.

Ebola virus, the fear and not to fear

The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak in West Africa an international emergency, killing more than 900 people and spreading.

That’s scary and serious. But it also cries out for context.

The outbreak began in Guinea in March before spreading to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia. A traveler recently carried it farther, to Nigeria, leading to a few cases in the giant city of Lagos.

Ebola emerged in 1976. It has been confirmed in 10 African nations, but never before in the region of West Africa.

Lack of experience with the disease there has contributed to its spread. So has a shortage of medical personnel and supplies, widespread poverty, and political instability.

Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, predicts that within a few weeks, Ebola will sicken more people than all previous occurrences combined. Already more than 1,700 cases have been reported.

Global health officials say it will take months to fully contain the outbreak, even if all goes as well as can be hoped.

THE REASONS TO FEAR

There is no cure for Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

More than half of people infected in this outbreak have died. Death rates in some past outbreaks reached 90 percent.

It’s a cruel end that comes within days. Patients grow feverish and weak, suffering through body aches, vomiting, diarrhea and internal bleeding, sometimes bleeding from the nose and ears.

The damage can spiral far beyond the patients themselves.

Because it’s spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of sick patients, Ebola takes an especially harsh toll on doctors and nurses, already in short supply in areas of Africa hit by the disease.

Outbreaks spark fear and panic.

Health workers and clinics have come under attack from residents, who sometimes blame foreign doctors for the deaths. People with from Ebola or other illnesses may fear going to a hospital, or may be shunned by friends and neighbors.

Two of the worst-hit countries — Liberia and Sierra Leone — sent troops to quarantine areas with Ebola cases. The aim was to stop the disease’s spread but the action also created hardship for many residents.

THE REASONS NOT TO FEAR

—Ebola doesn’t spread easily, the way a cold virus or the flu does. It is only spread by direct contact with bodily fluids such as blood, saliva, sweat and urine. Family members have contracted it by caring for their relatives or handling an infected body as part of burial practices. People aren’t contagious until they show symptoms, Frieden said. Symptoms may not appear until 21 days after exposure.

“People should not be afraid of casual exposure on a subway or an airplane,” said Dr. Robert Black, professor of international health at Johns Hopkins University.

—Health officials around the developed world know how to stop Ebola. Frieden described tried-and-true measures: find and isolate all possible patients, track down people they may have exposed, and ensure strict infection-control procedures while caring for patients. Every past outbreak of Ebola has been brought under control.

The CDC is sending at least 50 staff members to West Africa to help fight the disease, while more than 200 work on the problem from the agency’s headquarters in Atlanta. The WHO is urging nations worldwide to send money and resources to help.

—It’s true that Ebola could be carried into the United States by a traveler, possibly putting family members or health care workers at risk. It’s never happened before. But if the disease does show up in the U.S., Frieden said, doctors and hospitals know how to contain it quickly.
“We are confident that a large Ebola outbreak in the United States will not occur,” Frieden told a congressional hearing Thursday.

Laptop can Kill Sperms

A journal on Fertility and Sterility shows laptop with wifi connections when used by men can kill sperms.

Argentinean researchers put a drops of healthy sperms near the laptop downloading area. The results: quarter of the sperms has stopped swimming and 9 percent of the sperms has damaged dna. While another study a drop away from the computer only 14 percent of the affected sperms did not swim.

The culprit: electromagnetic radiation from the wireless internet. Although the study not yet officially conclusive but an indication of the study confirms the killing of sperms.

Another study published in the same journal where 29 men placed with temperature sensors in their scrotums while using laptop on their laps. The result after 10 to 15 minutes an increased of scrotum temperature that will damaged sperm production.

For maximum production of sperm, testicles need to be cool at least two to three degrees below body temperatures. When using laptop it can cause temperatures to rise by 2.5 degrees in one hour, according to the study.

According to lead urologist Dr. Yefim Sheynkin of the University of New York at Stony Brook, in order to defy the killing of sperm used desk, or else keep your legs apart. But be sure not to go beyond the 20 minutes duration because as the temperature rises the killing spree starts within without a warning.

Moon’s Dust is Poisonous

Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong complains of undesirable effects affecting the skin, eyes and airways that could be related to exposure to the dust of the moon that stick into their space suits during their extravehicular activities and carried into their spacecraft. The findings could be terrible awakening for those dreaming the moon in the future.

Moon’s dust is composed of coated layer of thick and undisturbed dust not only ultra-fine which can be easily inhale but it could pose the risk of health problems, similar to breathing asbestos and volcanic ash.

Once inside the lungs the super-fine, sharp-edged lunar dust could health issues, affecting the respiratory and cardiovascular system, causing airway inflammation and increasing the risks of various cancers.

The sharp ‘regolith’ of the moon is also believed to be as sharp as glass, without years of erosion like on earth, causing skin and eye damage. And a scratched cornea, while perhaps just an irritant on Earth, could cause havoc on a space mission.

The dust -subjected to millenia of UV radiation, would penetrate deep into the lungs, and micro-gravity would only help in bringing the dust deep into the lungs.

Humans can only spent two to three days in the moon and that is living only in the spaceship with airtight suits. But with long term exposure even wearing protective gear could be harmful when inhalation because dust can easily stick and follow the astronauts back into the living quarter.

Dreaming the dramatic and lovely moonscape in the future will just end up in dreaming. Just look up and see the moon beautifully shines.
