A second “moon” will appear in Earth’s orbit in October


Great Britain,

24 Sep 2020.
/LIVE24/.

Astrophysicists recently discovered a mysterious celestial body approaching our planet.

Experts have already managed to warn the public that the object does not pose any threat to the world’s population. Moreover, a moving body can act not as an aggressor, but as a … companion!

“The object will easily fall into the trap of our orbit, and turn into a kind of mini-moon in October,” said astrophysicists. – The approaching body has already been named 2020 SO. If that happens, it will turn out to be the third documented “mini-moon” in Earth’s orbit.

According to experts, like two other objects, 2020 SO will be identified as an asteroid.

“Nevertheless, there is evidence that the approaching body may be nothing more than an impressive piece of space debris,” the experts explained. – It was just that one day such a piece “decided” to go home.

According to preliminary data of scientists, such an ejected upper stage Centaurus, which separated from the Surveyer-2 descent vehicle, launched in 1966, can act as a conditional asteroid. The device was supposed to study the surface of the moon, but the mission ended in failure.

– The object is quite identical in size to the alleged cosmic debris, but much slower than a classical asteroid, added astrophysicists.

According to space archaeologist Alice Gorman, the modest speed of an approaching object is a reflection of its original speed, which served as a starting point for creating a similar version of the “debris” nature of the body.

“It is simply impossible to track the entire garbage space,” said the experts. – Its volumes over the past decades are too large. So there is nothing surprising in the fact that something is trying to fly back.

Formerly LIVE24 reported that in order to destroy space debris in Japan, a satellite is being developed. Japanese scientists intend to develop a space satellite that will use a laser to destroy small debris from the feet of rockets and other debris in near-earth orbit. The project will be implemented by the Japan Aerospace Research Agency. According to preliminary data, the device should act on the debris with a laser beam and then throw it into the atmosphere for subsequent combustion. The satellite is planned to be launched in three years.

The electric car maker is seeking to declare the duties illegal and reimburse the tariffs already paid. The US trade representative Robert Lighthizer is listed as the defendant in the case.

Lighthizer did not respond to the agency’s request for comment.

As reminds BloombergIn 2019, Tesla received a refusal from the US authorities in response to a request to abolish duties of 25% on Chinese-made monitors that the company uses in the production of Model 3 electric vehicles. At the same time, the manufacturer complained about damage from the imposed tariffs.

In January, the USA and China signed documents in the first phase of the trade deal, which oblige Beijing to buy $ 200 billion worth of agricultural products and other goods from Washington within two years. In exchange, the US side canceled the planned increase in duties on Chinese goods, including phones, toys and laptops. Already set by the United States, duties of 25% on goods from China totaling $ 250 billion remain in force until the countries agree on the terms of the second phase of the agreement. August parties reported on progress in the implementation of the agreement on the first phase of the transaction.

the masks sold in supermarkets such as Colruyt, Aldi, Carrefour… are they really effective? The top 5 in terms of quality

In order to enlighten consumers on the quality of masks sold in department stores, the DH has produced a top 5 based on the filtration capacity of these masks.

The first, at the top of the ranking, is the mask sold at Albert Heijn, the Dutch supermarket chain. It was HLN who tested the masks sold in this store, and it turns out that they are the best, since they allow a filtration of 86% of the particles. “The masks are tested by Triplex Precision Medical Devices Company and meet European standards. The information that we mention on the packaging reflects the results of tests carried out at the request of the supplier by an external and independent body ”, said Ann Maes, spokesperson for Albert Heijn.

In second position come the masks sold at Delhaize and Lidl, which offer 80% filtration. They have been tested according to the Centexbel ATP protocol. “Our disposable masks are tested according to European standards. Type 1 surgical masks are tested by an approved Belgian body, which has certified that they meet all standards, ”said Lidl spokesperson Julien Wathieu.

Third, the masks from Aldi. They allow 43% filtration of particles and are manufactured by the Chinese firm Jiangsu Lianyu Medical Equipment. Aldi clearly notes on the packaging of the masks that it is not a medical device or a means of personal protection. “These disposable masks are designed to prevent particles from being projected by the wearer and thus protect others. It’s not a way to protect yourself, ”explained Jason Sevestre, Aldi spokesperson.

In penultimate position come the masks sold at Colruyt, which can only filter 37% of particles. “Disposable masks are tested according to the ATP protocol by Centexbel. They meet the standard for surgical masks. These are high-quality, surgical-type masks which meet all the requirements of this type of product, ”says Silja Decock, spokesperson for Colruyt. Here too, the brand specifies all the same that these masks are not surgical but that they are comfort masks.

In last position come the masks from home Carrefour*, which allow 30% filtration of particles. They remain compliant with European standards but their filtration capacity is the lowest, according to the test carried out by HLN.

*Important clarification concerning the masks tested for this brand. “These are masks sold by a franchisee, which had its own supply chain”, indicates the brand in reaction to this comparison. Carrefour specifies and ensures that the masks sold and approved in its stores have a much higher reliability rate, reaching “95%”.

Most of the masks from Carrefour therefore meet the high quality standards.
