Asteroid NT7

This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.

Technical Notes:

The asteroid has been given a 0.06 on the Palermo technical scale,

PS = log10 [PI / (fB &times DT)]

where PI is the impact probability of the event in question and DT is the time until the potential event, measured in years. The annual background impact frequency,

fB = 0.03 &times E-4/5

is the annual probability of an impact event with energy (E, in
megatons of TNT) at least as large as the event in question.

Elsewhere:

Several new images have been added into the rotating header image pool. Reloading this page several times should present a nice sampling. The rotation is accomplished using the Hivelogic Image Rotator.
