Space experts to meet in Tokyo to discuss ways to deflect asteroids TOKYO, Japan, 17-May-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Scientists and engineers from all over the world will gather from 15 to 19 May in Tokyo, Japan, at the 5th Planetary Defence Conference (PDC) to discuss the threat posed by asteroids and comets. This bi-annual conference, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) will discuss actions that might be taken to deflect an incoming object. At the first conference on asteroid impact prevention to be held in Asia, space experts from Airbus will provide an update on the NEOShield-2 project and will introduce an alternative kinetic impactor demo mission scenario, called NEOTωIST. NEOShield-2 is a collaborative project that started in 2015 as part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and is developing the necessary space mission technologies to divert hazardous asteroids. The project is also investigating how to precisely measure any deflection attempts and how to carry out in-situ investigations. Astronomical observations, modelling, simulations and physical characterization of Near Earth Objects (NEOs) are being studied to better understand their physical properties. The research is also looking at a European strategy for future research and mission-related endeavours. The NEOShield-2 team comprises 11 European partners under the coordination of Airbus in Friedrichshafen (Germany). Airbus in Toulouse (France) and in Stevenage (United Kingdom) are also part of the project. The project overview and its achievements reached so far will be presented in Tokyo by Airbus’s Albert Falke, project manager and responsible project coordinator of NEOShield-2 towards the European Union. Kilian Engel, space expert at Airbus and Line Drube, postdoctoral researcher at the German Aerospace Center (DLR-Berlin), will present the NEOTωIST concept, an element of the NEOShield-2 project. NEOTωIST is a test mission to demonstrate “deflection technology readiness” and to answer the uncertainties in the asteroid deflection physics that cannot be proven on Earth. Albert Falke, who heads Airbus’s asteroid deflection programme, said: “A deflection test mission, perhaps in a joint effort by several space agencies, is needed to develop technologies to enable us to deal with an asteroid threat. Most importantly, it would give us real data which is vital for the development of a mission in cases of real emergency.” A deflection test mission with an asteroid in space is the only way to validate existing impact models and to check that the current computer models of deflection predictions are accurate. Ulrich Johann, Head of Future Programmes, at Airbus’s Science and Earth Observation department in Friedrichshafen, Germany said: “The NEOTωIST concept combines an impactor and an in situ monitoring module in a single spacecraft. This cost-effective approach providing on the spot observation capabilities should lead to more launch opportunities for NEOTωIST compared to other concepts.” Most demonstration mission concepts to date rely on changing an asteroid’s orbit around the sun and require a second spacecraft that follows the asteroid for some time after the impact to measure the very small shift in its orbit. In contrast, the Airbus concept is to impact a wellcharacterized asteroid at some distance from its rotation axis, and thereby change the asteroid’s rotational period. This change can be measured by Earth-bound telescopes. In parallel, a small observation module which is separated from the main kinetic impactor spacecraft just before impact, will also measure this rotation change. These close-up observations will give detailed information about the impact location and success of the mission.

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The FBI Intelligence Analysts Association — which seeks to elevate the importance of the FBI’s intelligence mission and to represent the professional interests of the FBI’s 3,100 plus Intelligence Analysts (IAs) — recently requested the President, members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and the Attorney General to consider the association’s views on the critical matter of selecting the next Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). In its letter to senior government officials, the FBI IAA articulated the need for the selection of a nonpartisan Director who will maintain the FBI’s traditional neutrality and independence. The FBI IAA believes it is vital that the next Director come without attachment to, or a background as, a partisan elected official in a political party. Additionally, the FBI IAA listed three necessary traits for a successor to manage the FBI in the 21st century, specifically that the next Director: The FBI IAA emphasized that it is vital for the next Director continue to build the FBI’s Intelligence Career Service (ICS), with intelligence leadership, and be committed to strengthening a culture of collaboration, which engages the diverse talents of the entire FBI workforce. The next Director must also quickly adapt the FBI’s priorities and develop new ways of doing business, including technology advancements, in the face of an ever-changing set of diverse and sophisticated threats. While the association chose not to endorse a specific candidate as the ideal successor, the FBI IAA will welcome a Director who will be as strong of an advocate for the FBI’s intelligence mission as former Director Comey. The letter in its entirety is posted at the FBI IAA’s website: http://www.fbiiaa.org/. The FBI Intelligence Analysts Association is nonprofit organization. It is led by a Board of Directors, who voluntarily serve the members without compensation of any kind. The FBI’s Intelligence Analysts are an integral part of the FBI’s dual intelligence and law enforcement missions. Totaling more than 3,100 intelligence professionals, they are the FBI’s second largest employee group. The FBI IAA works to represent the views of FBI Intelligence Analysts, develop their profession within the FBI, and advance the FBI's Intelligence Program.

The exciting discovery of ancient carvings deep inside a dolmen near Kibbutz Shamir, in upper Galilee, took the archaeological world by storm as the first documentation of rock art in the Middle East. This archaeological treasure lay hidden in a tomb of massive proportions, measuring 65 feet in diameter, deep beneath 400 tons of rock. The abstract engravings - of great value because of their singularity - were found engraved on the ceiling of the tomb's central burial chamber, and were described to be "mysterious" in nature. Dating back to the so-called "Dark Ages" - the Intermediate Bronze Age in the Southern Levant - the gigantic dolmen was uncovered by Israeli archaeologists from Tel Hai College, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the Israel Antiquities Authority. "What makes this dolmen so unique is its huge dimensions, the structure surrounding it and most importantly the artistic decorations engraved in its ceiling," said the archaeologists. The thrilling discovery, featured March 2 in the journal PLOS One, offers a rare glimpse into the lives of people who lived in that region more than 4,000 years ago. The megalithic burial mound (or tumulus) is one of the more than 400 tomb structures still remaining from the Intermediate Bronze Age but stands out through its imposing size and detail work. According to Gonen Sharon, professor of Galilee Studies at Tel-Hai College and also the archaeologist who discovered the ancient rock art, the findings near Kibbutz Shamir suggest the 4,000-year-old civilization that left them behind was more advanced than previously thought. The lack of monumental buildings and low number of settlements from this era initially led scientists to presume the people of that time were mostly nomadic. However, the scale of the newfound burial structure, as well as the attention to detail poured into its construction, point to a more elaborate type of social organization. "A complex governmental system was needed to recruit laborers for building such a monumental structure and for supplying their needs during the operation," explained Sharon. "It also needed to possess the architectural knowledge and dexterity for the complex stonemasonry involved." Upon entering the tumulus, archaeologists stumbled upon a series of burial chambers built at the corners of the structure, culminating with a central rectangular chamber, which seems to have served as a family tomb. Here they found the remains of two adults - male and female - along with a young child. Yet the central chamber had more to offer, as Sharon was elated to come upon 14 abstract engravings on the ceiling, under the massive capstone. The engraved shapes depict straight lines converging toward the center of an arc. Most of the engravings are clearly visible and seem to be abstract, but 3D scans revealed they resemble arrows or anchors. "No parallels exist for these shapes in the engraved rock drawings of the Middle East, and their significance remains a mystery," said IAA archaeologist Uri Berger. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.
