Amateur Astronomer Spots Possible New Impact Flash At Jupiter

Slashdot - Fri, 2021-09-17 08:00
RockDoctor writes: A recent flurry of posts to astronomy news sites points to an amateur astronomer spotting a new impact on Jupiter. Every such case documented improves our estimates of how many bodies are flying around in the (inner) solar system, and improves our estimates of how likely we are to get another hit in a year, a decade, or a century. Sky and Telescope has been pulling in more information. has an image of the impact. (Note: some of these images have been "flipped" to an "on sky" orientation, and others haven't because astronomical telescopes generally produce an inverted image since it requires fewer reflections.) Estimates of the impactor size are unclear, but minimum sizes seem to be in the several kg range. Depending on how long the flash lasted, it could go up into the tons, which is important for estimating the number of potentially hazardous objects in the inner solar system. Space and Telescope's correspondents put the size at "up to" (important words!) the 30m range (100ft in Tudor measure), which would be around 10,000 tons -- a Chelyabinsk 2013-size body.

Error'd: In Other Words

The Daily WTF - Fri, 2021-09-17 07:30

We generally don't like to make fun of innocent misuses of a second language. Many of us struggle with their first. But sometimes we honestly can't tell which is first and which is zeroeth.

Whovian stombaker pontificates "Internationalization is hard. Sometimes, some translations are missing, some other times, there are strange concatenations due to language peculiarities. But here, we have everything wrong and no homogeneity in the issues."



Likewise Sean F. wonders "How similar?"



Mathematician Mark G. figures "I'm not sure that's how percent works, but thanks for the alert."



Job-hunter Antoinio has been whiteboarded before, but never quite like this. "I was applying at IBM. I must agree before continuing... To what?"



Experienced Edward explains "I've been a software engineer for 12 years, and still I have no idea how they accomplished this."



I'm sure Mark G. will agree: that about sums it up.
