Two Worlds Collide
When Two Worlds Collide
When two worlds collide, a symbiotic relationship is forged. This album was created and recorded in the death throes of the New World Order, capturing the internal and external friction of both worlds. The album features guest vocals by Billy Phobia and is available as a high-quality download or streaming on Bandcamp.
NASA has a mission on the horizon: the mission DART, which is called “Dart.” This high-resolution asteroid-hunting satellite is tasked with finding asteroids in the inner solar system. The mission is due to launch on September 11, and will begin capturing images and video from space a few days later.
Astronomers have only recently been able to observe asteroids up close, but they can tell a great deal about their compositions from the light reflected off their surfaces. The compositions of asteroids appear to change depending on their distance from the Sun. Near Mars, the asteroids are known as S-Types, which are composed of mostly rock and carbon, while asteroids further out are C-Types, which contain some metals.
Scientists estimate that a 20-meter asteroid could hit Earth within one day, causing city-level destruction. A 100-meter asteroid, on the other hand, could destroy a whole region. Imagery of the impact has been captured by IfA Astronomer Richard Wainscoat and University of Western Ontario Astronomer Robert Weryk.
NASA’s DART spacecraft will purposefully collide with the asteroid Dimorphos on Monday, capturing pictures of the impact. The results of this test will help scientists determine how to protect Earth from asteroids.
One of the most important questions for understanding the formation of Mercury is why its core is so large relative to the rest of the planet. This iron core covers about 85% of Mercury’s surface area. This core is likely the result of a high-velocity impact that stripped away the mantle of proto-Mercury but left its iron core intact. In this scenario, there could have been multiple collisions, each removing more mantle.
Planetesimals are small celestial bodies that were formed during the formation of our solar system. They are thought to have originated from the cosmic dust grains that make up protoplanetary disks and debris disks. Their existence allows researchers to study the formation of our solar system.
When two planets collide, their energy is transferred to smaller bodies. This energy is transferred through gravitational interactions. Hence, if a massive body collides with a small body, it tends to slow down. Likewise, if a smaller planetesimal collides with another large body, it may get heated up to the melting point. This process is recorded in meteorites.
Planetesimals are very small compared to the size of stars, and are not visible to the naked eye. Their collisions create large dust clouds that disperse. Spitzer infrared observations have also been able to observe these clouds. Although the infrared observations saw only a fraction of the debris cloud pass in front of the star, it was still enough to measure the cloud’s total size.
The rocky planets of the inner Solar System formed from planetesimals. These bodies were primarily made of silicate material, and their gravity allowed them to grow larger than terrestrial planets. The proto-planets were about 10 to 15 times the mass of Earth and had a large enough radius to pull in the solar nebula. These planetesimals had high enough mass to accrete massive atmospheres of gas.
Competition law and data protection are two areas of law that often intersect. In the EU, competition law restrictions are a legitimate way to ensure competitive balance, openness and fairness. The competition law framework is also an important tool for preventing discrimination. But competition law is not without exception.
The Data Act will overlap with the current regime for personal data, which could create a point of tension. The Data Act aims to increase transparency and increase the availability of personal data, and to create more trust in intermediaries that handle this information. The Act would also enhance data sharing mechanisms across the EU.
The new regulations will impact the way that companies use data and will also have a major impact on how they market to consumers. Marketers can expect to be scrutinised more closely as they use location data and behavioural data for personalised marketing. This means that brands that rely on consumer data must be transparent and trustworthy. In the end, consumers will reward brands that protect their data and make it easy to opt out of personalised advertising.
