Asteroid belt found round distant star
Guardian, UK, April 20, 2005

"(Charles) Beichman and his colleagues used an
infrared
spectrograph aboard Nasa's space telescope Spitzer
to look at 85 sun-like stars. Only HD69830 showed
a thick disk of warm dust in the inner section of
the star system. The guess is that every 1,000 years
or so, two asteroids in the belt collide and pulverise

each other."

"CLEVELAND - Scientists studying recent
rock samples taken from beneath an
ancient earthen mound are trying to
determine what caused unusually high
concentrations of a metal rarely seen
anywhere but near Earth's molten core
or in asteroids and comets."

Distribution of Meteorites Around Small-Size Craters?

Distribution of Meteorites Around Small-Size Craters?

Has anyone studied how the meteoritic material found
at impact craters such as Wabar, Boxhole, Henbury,
Odessa, and Morasko was distributed? I am curious if
either the main mass or the major amount of the
meteoritic material was either found inside the main
crater or otherwise directly associated with it in
some
fashion. Or was the meteoritc material simply
scattered
haphazardly about the primary crater in a manner
lacking any discernable association with the largest
crater and pattern?

Any suggestions of published papers relating to this
topic be would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Torino Scale Revised
Universe Today, April 14, 2005
http://www.universetoday.com/am/publish/torino_scale_revised.html?1342005

"Summary - ( Apr 13, 2005 ) Astronomers searching
for potentially destructive Earth-crossing asteroids
have revised the scale they use to communicate the
risk of impact to the public. The Torino scale, which
still goes from 0 (no chance of impact) to 10
(collision
is certain) has the same classifications, but it's
been
rewritten to give the public a better idea of the
risks
associated with different space rocks. Instead of
"meriting concern", lower risk objects now "merit
attention by astronomers", explaining that
astronomers will be making further observations."
