Astroid Bennu, full rotation (click on image for full screen).
Source: Spacecraft imagery: OSIRIS-REx


The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is traveling to Bennu, a carbonaceous asteroid whose regolith may record the earliest history of our solar system. Bennu may contain the molecular precursors to the origin of life and the Earth’s oceans. Bennu is also one of the most potentially hazardous asteroids, as it has a relatively high probability of impacting the Earth late in the 22nd century. OSIRIS-REx will determine Bennu’s physical and chemical properties, which will be critical to know in the event of an impact mitigation mission. Finally, asteroids like Bennu contain natural resources such as water, organics, and precious metals. In the future, these asteroids may one day fuel the exploration of the solar system by robotic and manned spacecraft.

He might just be angling for a senior advisor role in the Trump administration. His academic qualifications would have marked him as an outsider, but now he’ll fit right in.

from the article above:

"A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape"
"Prof Heino Falcke: "We still have to understand how the light is generated""


A black hole is a religion of space
