Large Asteroid to Safely Pass Earth on Sept. 1

Asteroid Florence, a large near-Earth asteroid, will pass safely by Earth on Sept. 1, 2017, at a distance of about 4.4 million miles, (7.0 million kilometers, or about 18 Earth-Moon distances). Florence is among the largest near-Earth asteroids that are several miles in size; measurements from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and NEOWISE mission indicate it’s about 2.7 miles (4.4 kilometers) in size.

“While many known asteroids have passed by closer to Earth than Florence will on September 1, all of those were estimated to be smaller,” said Paul Chodas, manager of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “Florence is the largest asteroid to pass by our planet this close since the NASA program to detect and track near-Earth asteroids began.”

This relatively close encounter provides an opportunity for scientists to study this asteroid up close. Florence is expected to be an excellent target for ground-based radar observations. Radar imaging is planned at NASA's Goldstone Solar System Radar in California and at the National Science Foundation's Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. The resulting radar images will show the real size of Florence and also could reveal surface details as small as about 30 feet (10 meters).

Asteroid Florence was discovered by Schelte "Bobby" Bus at Siding Spring Observatory in Australia in March 1981. It is named in honor of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), the founder of modern nursing. The 2017 encounter is the closest by this asteroid since 1890 and the closest it will ever be until after 2500. Florence will brighten to ninth magnitude in late August and early September, when it will be visible in small telescopes for several nights as it moves through the constellations Piscis Austrinus, Capricornus, Aquarius and Delphinus.

Radar has been used to observe hundreds of asteroids. When these small, natural remnants of the formation of the solar system pass relatively close to Earth, deep space radar is a powerful technique for studying their sizes, shapes, rotation, surface features and roughness, and for more precise determination of their orbital path.

JPL manages and operates NASA's Deep Space Network, including the Goldstone Solar System Radar, and hosts the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies for NASA's Near-Earth Object Observations Program, an element of the Planetary Defense Coordination Office within the agency's Science Mission Directorate.

UK scientists create world’s smallest surgical robot to start a hospital revolution

"British-built Versius device will slash costs, improve patient recovery times and help speed up keyhole surgery

British scientists have developed the world’s smallest surgical robot which could transform everyday operations for tens of thousands of patients.

From a converted pig shed in the Cambridgeshire countryside, a team of 100 scientists and engineers have used low-cost technology originally developed for mobile phones and space industries to create the first robotic arm specifically designed to carry out keyhole surgery..."

Further Research into Artificial Wombs Brings Us Closer to a Future Where Babies Grow Outside the Body

“Designing treatment strategies for extremely preterm infants is a challenge,” lead researcher Matt Kemp said in a press release. “At this gestational age the lungs are often too structurally and functionally under-developed for the baby to breathe easily.” Their work, published in The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, took a different approach. The key was treating the preterm infants not as babies, but as fetuses..."

Sometimes, life gets you down.

2017 has been a hard year, the last few weeks especially. I've also been battling a bit of depression lately, and have learned that I can turn to art, specifically my art, to help. Art can be extremely therapeutic. I write all about it in my latest piece for Toy Photographers. Check it out here:

Herb paris (Paris quadrifolia)

Svartskog, Norway

This is such a unique species in that it has a preference for symmetry, as its most prominent feature is not its eye-catching flower which is barely noticeable.

I has 4 prominent leaves, and the inflorescence usually also has 4 sepals, and 4 petals.

Yet the most valuable of all comes in one. One flower. One fruit.

The autumn is around the corner, and several species are now with yellow, orange and red foliage, while this one simply has foliage that withers. This makes the fruit rather attractive, but you have to know where to look, and to sit on your knees to appreciate it, as it is a plant that does not ask for a lot of attention by intense colors and growing in prominent places.

KJ McDaniels is moving to his fourth NBA team in as many seasons after agreeing to deal with the Toronto Raptors. ASM Sports, McDaniels' representatives, confirmed he and the Raptors reached a deal, and ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the contract will be for one year. A second-round pick of the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014, McDaniels struggled to contribute in a meaningful way for the Sixers and Houston Rockets over his first two-and-a-half years. After the Rockets traded him to the Brooklyn Nets in February, McDaniels played the best basketball of his pro career.

Genetic enhancement will be many times more powerful than steroids

"Clinical trials of CRISPR gene editing, when they start this year (2017), will edit existing cells in adults using an injection of a viral vector. It seems likely that CRISPR, or some improved version of it, will be established to be both safe and effective in the near future. Professor Stephen Hsu provides an analysis of the potential improvement from genetic editing compared to steroids..."

This week in science: both siderism - It’s weeks like this that I’m glad my bailiwick focuses on science and technology. There’s plenty of both-siderism in science, or poly-siderism for that matter that’s a big part of science; it’s arguably the whole point. To offer up ideas for debate and experiment, regroup, reformulate, and repeat. But perhaps spineless politicians and furious pundits could learn something from how that scientific process unfolds and converges to a conclusion. There com...
