Among the findings is another close encounter by the asteroid with Earth in with chance of impact currently at approximately 1 in , As with earlier orbital estimates where Earth impacts in and could not initially be ruled out due to the need for additional data, it is expected that the encounter will diminish in probability as more information about Apophis is acquired.
Initially, Apophis was thought to have a 2. Additional observations of the asteriod ruled out any possibility of an impact in The Apophis asteroid is approximately the size of two-and-a-half football fields. A majority of the data that enabled the updated orbit of Apophis came from observations made by Dave Tholen and collaborators at the University of Hawaii's Institute for Astronomy in Manoa.
Tholen pored over hundreds of previously unreleased images of the night sky made with the University of Hawaii's inch telescope , located near the summit of Mauna Kea. Tholen made improved measurements of the asteroid's position in the images, enabling him to provide Chesley and Chodas with new data sets more precise than previous measures for Apophis.
The science of predicting asteroid orbits is based on a physical model of the solar system which includes the gravitational influence of the sun , moon , other planets and the three largest asteroids. NASA detects and tracks asteroids and comets passing close to Earth using both ground and space -based telescopes. The Near Earth-Object Observations Program, commonly called " Spaceguard ," discovers these objects, characterizes a subset of them and plots their orbits to determine if any could be potentially hazardous to our planet.

Astraea was the fifth asteroid discovered, on December 8, by K. It was his first of two asteroid discoveries. The second was 6 Hebe. An amateur astronomer and post office employee, Hencke was looking for 4 Vesta when he stumbled on Astraea. The King of Prussia awarded him with an annual pension of 1, marks for the discovery.
After the discovery of Astraea, thousands of other asteroids would follow. Indeed, the discovery of Astraea proved to be the starting point for the eventual demotion of the four original asteroids which were regarded as planets at the time [ 8 ] to their current status, as it became apparent that these four were only the largest of a whole new type of celestial body. There has been only one observed stellar occultation by Astraea February 2, Back to discovery circumstances of the numbered minor planets.

The parent company had manufactured these gramophone records since 1 , pressing them from matrices that were made via a hectograph transfer of the original recording on a special master cylinder.
At the beginning, Pathe brand gramophone records did not have paper labels - the data on the recording was pressed directly into the central part of the gramophone record and highlighted by a white filler. Some of these non-standard parameters were originally chosen to allow the manufacturer to avoid numerous patent protections that applied both to the hill-and-dale recording on Edison's cylinders, and to the lateral recording of Berliner's gramophone records.
The centre of the gramophone record was chosen as the starting point so that the centrifugal force affecting the sound pick-up arm as the record played would help keep the round point of the sapphire in a relatively shallow groove. With this method the needle just"swam"- i. We will describe the activities of this entrepreneur in more detail mainly in the part dedicated to the Artiphon group.
Violin virtuoso, composer and pedagogue at Prague Conservatoire.

During the years of the First World War, the U. Although the number of Czech records pressed on Pathe brand gramophone records was relatively high, today it is difficult to determine the circumstances under which they were recorded. In this regard, the recollections of Vaclav Podrabsky, the former archivist and chronicler at Prague's National Theatre are somewhat confusing. He claimed 37 that he had been present forty years earlier at the recordings on Pathe gramophone records in Prague's Andel recording studio unfortunately, he did not specify the locality.
He says he accompanied " Before every recording - says Mr. Podrabsky - the Prague agent of the record companies jumped in front of a huge funnel and exclaimed: 'Hello, hello, Pathe record!
