A group of researchers is trying SNAP radio waves from 100 feet asteroid into its close flyby of * earth on Tuesday
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is focusing its antennas at asteroid 2010 XC15, a space rock that is in the category a close-Earth’s potentially dangerous asteroids. He tried to run an experiment to prepare a larger object, which ” Apophis which will have a close encounter with our planet in 2029.
“What’s new and what we’re trying to do is investigate the interior of asteroids with long-range radars and radio telescopes from Earth,” said Mark Haynes, a design and radar systems engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, in a it is said. “Longer wavelengths can penetrate the interior of matter much better than the radio wavelengths used for communication.”
HAARP is a research facility in Gakona, Alaska (which was there are many conspiracy theories about the matter). They create 180 frequency antennas, each standing 72 feet high and stretching across 33 acres. The the facility transmits radios to ionosphere, that’s the ionized part of the atmosphere It is located about 50 to 400 miles (80 to 600 kilometers) above the Earth’s surface. HAARP sends radio signals into the ionosphere and observes how they return, in an attempt to measure disturbances in the Sun, among other things.
Facility Science launched the campaign in October with 13 experiments, including one that involved a heavy nod off the Moon. At the time there were HAARP researchers considering sending a radio signal to an asteroid to probe the interior of the rocky body.
In the present experiment, tthe antennas in Alaska itself will transmit HAARP radios to the asteroid; then scientists will check He nodded if it was reflected but antenna arrays at the University of New Mexico Long Neck Array and in California Owens Valley Radio Observatory Long Necm Array
HAARP will continuously transmit a chirp signal slightly above and below 9.6 megahertz; repeat the tap at two second intervals. At its closest approach on December 27, the asteroid will be twice as far as the Moon from Earth.
The Mars experiment is to prepare for an upcoming encounter with an asteroid in 2029. That potentially dangerous asteroids, formally known. 99942 Apophis, it is about 1,210 feet (370 meters) wideand enter 20,000 miles (32,000 kilometers) of Earth on April 13, 2029. A near-Earth object was supposed to pose a slight threat to Earth in 2068, but NASA is dominated by.
However, HAARP wants to explore the asteroid to prepare for potential dangers in the future space rocks “The more time there is before a potential impact, the better they should try to deflect it,” Haynes said.
In September, NASA’s space shuttle smacked in small asteroids and successfully changed the orbit. Such wars to be one so that space averts the rock that threatens Earth
Today’s witness shows the potential of using long-term radio signals as a test the interior of asteroids. “If we can get ground-based systems up and running, it will give us a lot of opportunities to try to make sense of those things,” Haynes said.
