tiny space-debris detector will fly to station this week


how many tiny bits of space debris are pummeling the international space station day after day? a new experiment headed into orbit this week will find out.  nasa's space debris sensor is scheduled to launch aboard a spacex dragon cargo capsule on tuesday (dec 12). the sensor is designed to gather data on micrometeoroids and pieces of space debris, each about the size of a sand grain — far too small to be tracked from the ground. the sensor will reveal how frequently these bits of material collide with the station, how fast they are moving when they hit and the direction they came from. while a few grains of sand pelting a window might not pose a threat on earth, even miniature bits of space debris can be hazardous in orbit. these objects typically move through space at speeds ranging from






dozens of small debris fires in berkeley cause alarm – the mercury news


berkeley — the fire department is investigating a string of intentionally set small debris fires across the city and urging residents to report suspicious activity.since nov. 1, there have been 44 such fires involving trash, garbage receptacles, boxes, discarded mattresses and other combustible matter, according to a news release. although buildings have not been damaged and no one has been hurt, officials point out that small fires can quickly grow out of control.the fire department urges residents to put garbage cans away on non-collection days and to clear debris from around their homes.fire officials are especially concerned about these neighborhoods: russell street south of san pablo parkshattuck avenue between rose and marin circledwight way west of eighth streetmartin luther king jr






launchspace pitches debris sweeper that doubles as satellite tracker


colorado springs — launchspace technologies corp. proposes sending platforms as large as football fields into low earth orbit to sweep up space debris. the platforms also would be equipped with sensors to help u.s. government agencies detect and track orbiting satellites and debris. launchspace technologies' patented plan to clean up debris calls for sending debris collection units into equatorial orbit to capture debris ranging in size from 1 millimeter to five centimeters. that debris poses a serious problem for government and commercial satellite operators because it remains largely untracked and unavoidable, said marshall kaplan, chief technology officer for launchspace technologies of bethesda, maryland. as companies prepare to launch constellations of small satellites for earth obser

esa’s dramatic video shows why space junk is such a big problem


why it matters to you space debris is likely to make space travel impossible if we don't come up with a solution to clean it up soon.scientists met in germany last week to discuss a looming but practically invisible problem facing humanity — the millions of pieces of space junk orbiting our planet. debris large enough to destroy a spacecraft has more than doubled in less than a quarter-century, according to experts at the seventh european conference on space debris, and the issue is getting exponentially worse as small satellites are being launched in unprecedented numbers.there are some 5,000 objects larger than three feet, 20,000 objects over four inches, and 750,000 objects around 0.4 inches orbiting earth. “for objects larger than one millimeter (0.04 inch), 150 million is our model es






space debris may make travel treacherous, say scientists


why it matters to you without an effective solution for cleaning up orbiting debris, space travel may become more treacherous.last month, while setting a record for the most spacewalks by a women, astronaut peggy whitson lost her debris shield. although initially concerned, nasa soon determined that the blanket had floated far enough away from the international space station to not pose any immediate danger. instead, it went on to join the very debris it was intended to protect against.in the grand scheme of things, whitson’s shield is insignificant, but it ironically showcases the growing mass of space debris orbiting our planet.in under 25 years, the amount of junk big enough to destroy a spacecraft has more than doubled, the agence france-presse reports from the seventh european confere

experts call for legislation and improved tracking to deal with orbital debris


london — as the amount of debris in low-earth orbit continues to increase, experts at a recent conference called for both improved efforts to track debris as well as national legislation to mitigate that growth.  delegates at the seventh european conference on space debris, held at the european space operations centre in darmstadt, germany, from april 18 to 21, warned that without improved measures, a long-feared cascade of debris that renders low-earth orbit useless could occur. according to holger krag, head of the european space agency's space debris office, only 60 percent of all missions currently end with a successful disposal of the satellite in line with orbital debris mitigation guidelines promulgated by the united nations.

remove ghost ship fire debris from field


oakland — regional clean-water regulators have told oakland officials to remove charred debris from december’s ghost ship fire that the city dumped near san leandro bay and haul it to a landfill.that decision came without testing the material at the dump site, but regulators want the city to clean up the debris quickly and don’t plan on taking regulatory action, dale bower, of the san francisco bay regional water quality control board watershed division, said thursday.“it’s just not the best place for it, especially with all the rain,” he said in a telephone interview. he said the board didn’t “have enough information” to clearly say if the debris was a threat to nearby wetlands and the bay.a city spokesman did not immediately respond to a message. bower said he expects the city to remove

officials to stop oroville dam outflow to clear debris


oroville, calif. — california water authorities will cut the outflow from a dam to allow workers to remove debris piled at the base of its main spillway.the department of water resources said sunday it will start gradually reducing outflows from the oroville dam in northern california starting monday morning and completely stop them by the afternoon.it says it will stop the outflow from the nation's tallest dam for several days to allow workers to clear debris and silt from a pool at the bottom of the spillway. removing the debris will protect a shuttered underground hydroelectric plant and allow it to resume operations.the department says the reservoir's water level has been reduced by 60 feet since feb. 12, when nearly 200,000 people were evacuated for fear an emergency spillway could fa

three meteor showers will light up skies in november


while november is generally a cold time to do astronomy, it's still worth going outside. this month, skywatchers will be treated to three meteor showers, and the best part is you need no equipment to see the displays, except something warm to wear. here are the three showers to look for in the northern hemisphere. the showers are produced when the earth runs into debris streams left behind from comets or, occasionally, asteroids. particles from the debris slam into earth's atmosphere and burn up, producing a meteor, or "shooting star." first up are the taurids, which appear to radiate from the constellation taurus. the meteor shower will peak on friday and saturday (nov. 10 and 11), while the moon is in its last quarter, but the display will still be visible for several days before and aft
