They bombard an asteroid with radio waves to study its interior

The set of antennas at the HAARP facilities consists of 180 antennas spread over 13 hectares.

doing everything possible to create a group of researchers toss a series of radio signal on an asteroid 152 metropolis wide that recently passed by From Tierra,

Aurora Research Program Activa High Frequency Research (HAARP) is pointing its antennas at asteroid 2010 XC15, a space rock that was classified as an asteroid. potentially dangerous for Earth. These are tried proofs that can help us to prepare for a or againstbiggest thing called Apophis what will pass by our planet in 2029.

New thing we’re trying have to check the interior of asteroids with longitude radar broadband and ground-based radio telescopesaid Mark Haynes, the project’s principal investigator and radar systems engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. a from nasa announcement, “IsLonger wavelengths can penetrate the interior of an object better than used for radio wavelengths communication,

HAARP is a research center located Gakona, Alaska, It is composed of 180 high-frequency antennas, each 22 meters long. longer than they pull more than 13 hectares, these features transmitted radio rays towards the ionosphere, the ionized part of the atmosphere he is found above between 80 to 600 kms Superfici Terrestre, HAARP sends these sends radio signals into the ionosphere and waits to see how they return, in an effort to measure disturbances caused by the Sun, among other things.

Last October, scientists at the HAARP Research Center they threw a scientific expedition with 13 experimentsincluding the one who tried to bounce them hint about Moon. At that time, researchers at HAARP announced that they also they were thinking to send symptoms Radio to an asteroid to probe its interior Stony body.

during this Tuesday’s experimentHAARP antennas they sent radio signal to the asteroid, and later Scientists will verify If the reflected signal reaches the system of antennas longwave from the University of New Mexico already loss From the Owens Valley Radio Observatory in California.

antenna harp broadcast a kind of beep I keep going as above below 9,6 Megaherces, that will be repeated at two second intervals. Although it has been marked as a potentially dangerous asteroid, this asteroid has come closest to Earth. twice the distance between our planet and the Moon.

it is experiment wants to prepare us And future meeting With potentially dangerous asteroid that will pass close to Earth In 2029. Isand asteroidsbaptized formally known as 99942 Apophis, is about 370 m wide and will pass a 32000 kilometer Ground on April 13, 2029. it was thought that it might represent a risk to Earth in 2068, but NASA this possibility has been ruled out,

despite rejecting itHAARP wants to analyze asteroid to prepare for potential risk of either Space rocks in the future. “The more time we have before a Capacity influenceThe more options there are to try to bend it,” Haynes said.

in September, NASA’s Dart spacecraft crashes against a small asteroid and managed to transform its class successfully. Such a strategy could be a way to remove a dangerous space rock. for the earth.

test done yesterday it will show there is a possibility that use of radio signals to do long wave analysis inside asteroids. “If we can get our terrestrial systems, that would give us a lot of possibilities to try to explore the interior of these objects,” Haynes said.
