AI algorithm finds ‘potentially hazardous’ near-Earth asteroid

Prophetic Dreams and Visions from my lovely Jesus – VISIONS OF PEARL GATES & THE ROCK -

A potentially Earth-threatening space rock has been detected by a new artificial intelligence algorithm programmed to find asteroids that come dangerously close to our planet.

The newly discovered near-Earth asteroid designated 2022 SF289 is the first Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA) to be identified with the new HelioLinc3D algorithm, let alone artificial intelligence.

The rock in question is about 600 feet (183 meters) wide, almost the size of two soccer fields, and is expected to pass Earth within 140,000 miles (225,000 kilometers).

Considering Earth and the Moon are, on average, 238,855 miles (384,400 kilometers) apart, this can be pretty alarming. Though it is classified as potentially hazardous, that doesn’t mean it’s inevitable that it will impact Earth in the future.

As with any form of artificial intelligence, it is only as good as the data it’s receiving. HelioLinc3D uses information collected by a network of four telescopes called ATLAS. Two of which sit high in the mountains of Hawaii. Another operates in Chile, and the other is located in South Africa. Collectively they scan the entire sky several times each night, searching for large moving objects.

Such objects include asteroids and comets that come within 7.5 million kilometers of Earth and are bigger than 140 meters (PHA). This would also be called a near-Earth asteroid.

In this particular case, HelioLinc3D used fragments of data from four nights of observations from ATLAS in September of last year to identify the PHA.

“By demonstrating the real-world effectiveness of the software that Rubin will use to look for thousands of yet-unknown potentially hazardous asteroids, the discovery of 2022 SF289 makes us all safer,” stated Ari Heinze, a researcher at the University of Washington and a main developer of the HelioLinc3D algorithm.

Vera C. Rubin Observatory in Chile, which is expected to finish development in 2025, will utilize the new AI algorithm and special new instruments to identify near-Earth objects that are too difficult to spot with existing telescopes.

The Tribulation is commencing..

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
