Here are 6 Ways to Be a Good and Professional Waiter at a Hotel

From the sea – Comet K2, which is thought to have originated from a location in the outermost part of the Solar System, will approach planet Earth.

K2 is different from Halley’s Comet, which periodically passes for about 83 years. It is not known when this comet will pass again near Earth.

Comets are members of the Solar System that, like Earth, orbit the Sun, which is on its way from the outer Solar System (outer solar system) for regions within the Solar System (inner solar system), just crossed the earth.

Comet C/2017 K2 (PanSTARRS), or K2 for short, is believed to have originated from a location in the outermost part of the Solar System called the Oort Cloud.avan oorty,

beginning of c comet The type is not periodic, the number 2017 indicates the year it was found, and the combination of letters and numbers K2 indicates the order in which it was found in 2017.

“This comet will pass closest to Earth on July 13, 2022, at a distance of about twice that of the Sun. K2 is currently approaching its closest distance from the Sun, which is expected in December of this year,” National Research said Abdul Rachman, a researcher at the Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), who is also coordinator of the Kupang National Observatory Management Agency. (BPON).

“Because it belongs to the group of non-periodic comets, K2 does not regularly pass near Earth as do periodic comets such as Halley’s Comet, which have a period of about 83 years, so it is not known whether it will pass by Earth again. When will it pass?”

Abdul said that K2 was discovered by a comet monitoring system called Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (PanSTARRS) located in Hawaii on May 21, 2017.

The appearance of K2 as it passes closest to Earth, showing a dust tail and a gas tail. The closer to the Sun, the more clearly the tail of the gas will be visible.

According to Abdul, while passing by Earth, K2 can only be seen using a telescope, especially because it coincides with the full moon. However, as the comet gets closer to the Sun, it can be seen with binoculars.

“All areas on Earth’s surface have the opportunity to see the comet on a clear night,” Abdul said.

Observations of K2 can be made within a few months, especially as the comet passes near Earth, en route to its closest point to the Sun. until a few months after that.

Abdul said, the possibility of the comet falling to the earth can be studied through research from the event of the comet crossing the earth.

In the case of K2, the comet passed the Earth at a distance of more than 270 million km so that it would have no effect on Earth.

Because it passes far enough away from Earth, which is about 2 times Earth’s distance from the Sun, it has no negative effect.

According to Abdul, Comet K2 on BPON was observed for several days from July 13-16, 2022 at the Operations Office and Science Center in the village of Olanasi.

Every day of observation, the acquisition is carried out for several hours. The collected data can not only be analyzed for research purposes, but can also be used for astrophotography.

“For observation, a telescope that uses a mirror measuring 25 cm and a CCD detector equipped with multiple color filters is used,” he said.

Emanuel Sunging, head of the Center for Space Research, said the observational data could be used for research. Not only by Brin researchers, but by everyone interested in studying the dynamics of objects in the Solar System.

The shape of the two comet tails (dust and gas) can be obtained by understanding the internal properties of the comet, as well as the weather conditions in space at the time.

Furthermore, Emanuel said, from the comet’s visit, at least until December 2022, it may be known whether the comet has ended its life. stab to the sun? Or continue its trajectory out of the Solar System? Then how was the journey?

The passing of the comet is a good opportunity for scientists to observe the comet more closely and for astrophotography workers to photograph it.

every comet is Specialty It is interesting to study scientific and immortal through camera shots.

According to Emanuel, the biggest hope from such small observations is to provide insight and information to Indonesians, that Indonesians already have an astronomical observatory in the East Nusa Tenggara region that has been used for space research with Brin. can go.

celestial bodies such as comet The entire planet cannot be seen on Earth at all times. It took a long time, even decades.

These natural phenomena are of great interest to the public.
