Asteroid To Fly Safely Past Earth On April 19

Body Discovered Nearly Three Years Ago By Astronomers

A relatively large near-Earth asteroid discovered nearly three years ago will fly safely past Earth on April 19 at a distance of about 1.1 million miles, or about 4.6 times the distance from Earth to the moon. Although there is no possibility for the asteroid to collide with our planet, this will be a very close approach for an asteroid of this size.

NASA Scientists Find Dynamo At Lunar Core May Have Formed Magnetic Field

Moon's Magnetic Field Lasted For About A Million Years, Scientists Say

The moon no longer has a magnetic field, but NASA scientists are publishing new research that shows heat from crystallization of the lunar core may have driven its now-defunct magnetic field some 3 billion years ago.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.16.17): Navigation Reference System (NRS)

Navigation Reference System (NRS) The NRS is a system of waypoints developed for use within the United States for flight planning and navigation without reference to ground based navigational aids. The NRS waypoints are located in a grid pattern along defined latitude and longitude lines. The initial use of the NRS will be in the high altitude environment in conjunction with the High Altitude Redesign initiative. The NRS waypoints are intended for use by aircraft capable of point−to−point navigation.
