     "The fact is that the overwhelming majority of these
     [near-Earth] objects are not large. The big ones come once every
     100 million years or so. What we have to worry about are the
     middle sized ones big enough to destroy a city, but not
     the world. If the one in Siberia in [1908] had hit a big city it
     would be a major disaster. That could be dealt with by ordinary
     civil defense measures, such as taking the people out in time. If
     you had the organization in place you could get people out quite
     easily in a week. It would destroy the buildings but not kill the
     people. That's the kind of danger we're actually dealing with, I
     think, and it could be dealt with by this kind of defense far more
     effectively than trying to knock the asteroid out of the sky which
     you could only do if you had a very long time."

From Alan Boyle <alan.boyle@MSNBC.COM>

Dear Benny:

Freeman Dyson had some intriguing things to say on the Tunguska
question (and lots of other topics) during an MSNBC chat Tuesday. Your
CCNet community might be interested in taking a look at this transcript
... being aware, of course, that typos (such as the date of Tunguska)
may creep in during the transcription process:

http://bbs.msnbc.com/bbs/msnbc-transcripts/posts/er/446.asp


MODERATOR’S NOTE: It would appear that Freeman Dyson’s comments during
MSNBC's online chat do not actually address the problem of avoiding the
impact of "middle sized" asteroids. Instead, he focuses on relatively
small NEOs in the Tunguska class. Obviously, there would be no need for
planetary defense efforts if we're to gamble the future of our current
civilisation on this class of small impactors only. Yet decision makers
would be well advised not to underestimate the societal and economic
distress around the globe as a result of a collision with on object in
the 200 - 500 meter range.

(2) SUPERNOVA DEBRIS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM

From PSR DISCOVERIES, 28 March 2000
http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/PSRdiscoveries/Mar00/supernovaDebris.html

Written by G. Jeffrey Taylor
Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology

Meteorites contain clear evidence that isotopes with short half lives
(as short as 100,000 years) were present in the cloud of gas and dust
(the called solar nebula) from which the Sun and planets formed.
Supernovae, the powerful explosions of spent stars, produce elements,
including short-lived radioactive isotopes. Given the short
lifetimes, these elements must have been added immediately before
solids formed in the Solar System, and it is possible that a
supernova triggered the collapse of the vast interstellar cloud in
which the Solar System formed. However, there is some evidence that
two isotopes, aluminum-26 and manganese-53, were not distributed
uniformly in the solar nebula. If correct, does this mean that the
supernova debris was not mixed thoroughly into the collapsing
interstellar cloud? This possibility was tested by Robert H. Nichols,
Frank Podosek, and Cristine Jennings (Washington University in St.
Louis) and Brad Meyer (Clemson University). They evaluated how
thoroughly supernova products were mixed into the solar nebula by
searching for the effects on the isotopic make up of other elements.
They conclude that the explosive products of a supernova would have
been mixed uniformly into the nebula. Thus, either the evidence of
heterogeneous distribution of short-lived isotopes is incorrect, or
some isotopes were not formed in a supernova, but came from somewhere
else. This research project is one of many that link studies of
meteorites, astronomical observations, and astrophysical
calculations.

SPIEGEL TV THEMENABEND

Vor allem durch Hollywoodfilme wie "Deep Impact" und "Armageddon" sind
Kometen und Asteroiden als potenzielle Bedrohung der Erde ins Blickfeld
der Öffentlichkeit geraten. Aber was ist wirklich dran an den
inszenierten Katastrophenszenarios?

Ist unser Planet tatsächlich eine "kosmische Schießbude", wie es ein
Wissenschaftler der Nasa formulierte? Oder ist alles lediglich eine
übertriebene Panikmache? Tatsache ist, dass die Erde im Verlauf ihrer
Geschichte immer wieder von Asteroiden und Kometen getroffen wurde.
Inzwischen gilt es als gesichert, dass durch einen Asteroideneinschlag
ein nuklearer Winter ausgelöst wurde, der die Ursache für das Aussterben
der Dinosaurier war. 1908 explodierte über der sibirischen Tundra ein
Asteroid mit einer Sprengkraft, die die der Atombombe von Hiroshima um
das Tausendfache übertraf. Die Druckwelle fällte den Baumbestand in
einem Umkreis von 3600 Quadratkilometern. Auch heute prallen in
unregelmäßigen Abständen Geschosse auf die Erdoberfläche oder verglühen
beim Eintritt in die Atmosphäre. Ist es also nur eine Frage der Zeit bis
zur nächsten großen Kollision? Sicher erscheint nur, dass der Aufprall
eines Objekts entsprechenden Ausmaßes apokalyptische Verwüstungen nach
sich ziehen könnte.

Astronomen und Impaktforscher aus aller Welt beschäftigen sich seit
Jahren verstärkt mit dieser Thematik. In Tagungen, Projekten und
Veröffentlichungen werden Wahrscheinlichkeiten, Folgen und
Abwehrmaßnahmen eines drohenden Asteroideneinschlags auf der Erde
diskutiert. Selbst die Nasa hat ein eigenes Komitee für die Überwachung
der erdnahen Objekte eingerichtet, von denen sich vermutlich Tausende im
All befinden, jedoch erst geschätzte zehn Prozent entdeckt sind. Besteht
also doch eine reale Gefahr für unseren Planeten?

Eingeleitet wird der Themenabend durch den ersten Teil des
Katastrophenfilms "Asteroids - Tod aus dem Weltall". Anschließend
dokumentiert SPIEGEL TV in Hintergrundberichten und Studiogesprächen die
Ergebnisse und Kontroversen der Asteroidenforschung.

RELEASE:  00-47

PLANET HUNTERS ON TRAIL OF WORLDS SMALLER THAN SATURN

     Planet-hunting astronomers have crossed an important
threshold in planet detection, with the discovery of two planets
that may be smaller in mass than Saturn.

     Of the 30 extrasolar planets around Sun-like stars detected
previously, all have been the size of Jupiter or larger.  The
existence of these Saturn-sized candidates suggests that many
stars harbor smaller planets, in addition to the Jupiter-sized
ones.

     Finding Saturn-sized planets reinforces the theory that
planets form by a snowball effect of growth from small ones to
large, in a star-encircling dust disk. The 20-year-old theory
predicts there should be more smaller planets than large planets,
and this is a trend the researchers are beginning to see in their
data.

     "It's like looking at a beach from a distance," explained
Geoff Marcy of the University of California at Berkeley. 
"Previously we only saw the large boulders, which were Jupiter-
sized planets or larger. Now we are seeing the 'rocks,' Saturn-
sized planets or smaller.  We still don't have the capability of
detecting Earth-like planets, which would be equivalent to seeing
pebbles on the beach."

     Jupiter alone is three times the mass of Saturn. This has
left the nagging possibility open that some of the extrasolar
planets might really be stillborn stars, called brown dwarfs,
which would form like stars through the collapse of a gas cloud.
But now researchers are better assured these "Jupiters" are only
the tip of the iceberg, and there are many more planets to be
found that are the mass of Saturn or smaller.

     "Now we are confident we are seeing a distinctly different
population of bodies that formed out of dust disks like the disks
Hubble Space Telescope has imaged around stars," said Marcy.

     The discovery was made by planet-sleuths Marcy, Paul Butler
of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and Steve Vogt of the
University of California, Santa Cruz, using the mighty Keck
telescope in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. They discovered a planet at least
80 percent the mass of Saturn orbiting 3.8 million miles from the
star HD46375, 109 light-years away in the constellation Monoceros,
and a planet 70 percent the mass of Saturn orbiting 32.5 million
miles around the star 79 Ceti (also known as HD16141), located 117
light-years away in the constellation Cetus.

     These planets are very close to their stars and so have short
orbits. They whirl around their parent stars with periods of 3.02
days and 75 days respectively. This allowed for their relatively
rapid discovery.

     The astronomers detected the small wobble of a star caused by
the gravitational tug of the unseen planets. For the past five
years Marcy and Butler have used this technique successfully to
catalog 21 extrasolar planets. Boosted by the light-gathering
power of Keck, they have steadily increased the precision of their
measurements so they can look for the gravitational effects of
ever-smaller bodies. In this latest detection, the change in a
star's velocity -- rhythmically moving toward and then away from
Earth -- is only 36 feet per second, a little faster than a human
sprints.

     The Saturn-mass planets are presumably gas giants, made
mostly of primordial hydrogen and helium, rather than the rocky
material Earth is made of. They are so close to their parent stars
they are extremely hot, and are not abodes for life as we know it.
The planet orbiting 79 Ceti has an average temperature of 1530
degrees Fahrenheit (830 degrees Celsius). The planet orbiting
HD46375 has an average temperature of 2070 degrees Fahrenheit
(1130 degrees Celsius).

     They probably formed at a farther distance from the star,
where they could accumulate cool gas, and then migrated into their
present orbits. Along the way they would have disrupted the orbits
of any smaller terrestrial planets like Earth. These "marauding"
gas giants seem more the rule than the exception among the planets
surveyed so far, because Marcy and Butler's detection technique
favors finding massive planets in short-period orbits. This seems
to be the case for approximately six percent of the stars surveyed
so far.

     Their research is part of a multi-year project to look for
wobbles among 1,100 stars within 300 light-years of Earth. The
project is supported by NASA and the National Science Foundation.

(6) IS GERMANY JOINING RUSSIA’S AND CHINA’S ANTI-AMERICAN
    SPACE POLICY?

From SpaceDaily, 28 March 2000
http://www.spacedaily.com/spacecast/news/bmdo-00o.html

EAST GERMAN MP WARNS OF NEW ARMS RACE

Washington (AFP) March 28, 2000 -

The leader of Germany's delegation to the NATO parliamentary assembly
warned Tuesday that US plans for a national missile defense system
(NMD) will lead to a new international arms race.

"Even if an agreement with Russia is found, the system will lead to an
increased arms race with other nations like China," Markus Meckel, a
member of the German Bundestag and of Berlin's ruling Social Democratic
party, told journalists during his visit here.

He also warned that the plan endangered cohesion within the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization, especially since the European allies
so far had not been consulted on the project.

(7) VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR MANNED MISSION TO ALPHA CENTAURI

From Tom Gehrels <tgehrels@LPL.Arizona.EDU>

Dear Benny,

Are your readers aware of an opportunity to volunteer for a manned mission
to Alpha Centauri in the 2011 - 2045 time frame?  Professor C. de Jager
and astronaut Wubbo Ockels are some of the people behind this rather
classified venture. They are, however, soliciting volunteers. I
guess this is to find out if there indeed would be candidates
willing to do it. Many people have already volunteered, but it is
still open until the winners will be announced at the end of this
week. Further information is in http://www.12move.nl/space

Once again the peisergrams have come to my rescue, for today it
happened that I was teaching about Triton, and, behold, on the very
day, there was an interesting posting on Triton, so I was able to
impress my class with my enormous store of up-to-date knowledge. I
shall be teaching Pluto on Thursday - can it be hoped that before then
someone will post something new and fascinating about that object (I
daren't call it a planet) so that I can impress my class yet further,
with little preparation?

(9) FOLLOW-UP ON PANSPERMIA

From Brig Klyce <bklyce@panspermia.org>

Dear Benny --

After Jon Richfield's article on panspermia appeared on CCNet, he
contacted me. We subsequently exchanged about 15 e-mails altogether on
the subject. The exchange stalled when we were unable to agree on a
definition of "progress" in evolution, nor on a definition of "open
system."  The dialog may still be useful as an example of the
difficulties that arise when representatives of totally different
paradigms attempt to communicate. I have posted the e-mails on the
Internet at http://www.panspermia.org/replies3b.htm. The exchange has
been edited lightly, mostly to reduce white space and delete
housekeeping matters, until the end (when I became exasperated!). I
would be glad to hear from other participants in your group with
information about how evolutionary progress analogous to life's is
possible in a closed system. Thanks.

PAOLO FARINELLA (1953 - 2000)

From Mario Carpino <carpino@brera.mi.astro.it>

Dear friends,

Paolo Farinella died on Saturday morning, at Bergamo hospital. After
the heart attack and the transplant of last month (February 8), his
conditions have been progressively decaying, up to the tragic epilogue
of last week.

On Tuesday, 27 March he was carried from Bergamo to S. Frediano (the
village near Pisa where he was living), where he was buried without
funeral ceremonies (according to his last will).

An informal commemoration is being organized by his colleagues and
friends for next Sunday (April 2) in Pisa:

"We would like to remember him in the way he would have preferred. A
commemoration which may be also a feast for recalling the moments we
have spent with him, for remembering how much his presence has enriched
all of us ..." (words of Paolo Cotta Ramusino).

I enclose also the postal addresses of Paolo's parents and Clelia,
his wife, for those who wish to send messages of condolense:

Famiglia Farinella, Piazza Castello 11, 26100 Cremona, Italy

Clelia Farinella, Via Palasciano 12, 56026 San Frediano, Cascina
(Pisa), Italy

Mario Carpino

----------------

Addition (by Benny J Peiser)

Paolo Farinella was one of Europe's leading asteroid experts. His
impressive and wide-ranging list of resesarch papers on the nature of
asteroids and their potential to threaten our Earth documents his
involvement in and enormous influence on the NEO research community
since the early 1980s. (I have attached a list of all his published
papers since 1981).

Paolo was a member of the Division of Planetary Science of the American
Astronomical Society and of the International Astronomical Union. At
the time of his death, he was Associate Editor of two scientific
journals, ICARUS and METEORITICS & PLANETARY SCIENCE. Asteroid (3248)
Farinella is named after Paolo.
 
Paolo was also a long-time advocate of international disarmement and
a member of several peace movements such as the Scientific Council of
USPID (Unione Scienziati Per Il Disarmo). He was on the Committee of
the Forum on the Problems of Peace and War and was a member of the
Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs.

He will be greatly missed by his wife, family and friends as well as
his colleagues and the entire NEO research community.
