Telescope has appeared that will monitor dangerous asteroids

NASA scientists have unveiled a telescope that can detect dangerous asteroids. He can observe record areas of space.

NASA announced the development of a space telescope to track asteroids that could be dangerous to Earth.

The researchers explained that space is a huge area, and we hardly know what happens outside of Earth. NASA has decided to work on a telescope that can see asteroids within our solar system in order to anticipate possible threats to our planet.

According to a NASA press release, their infrared space telescope will be of great help to researchers’ planetary defense efforts. The telescope will increase their ability to observe and characterize any potentially hazardous asteroids, comets, and even stars within 30 million km of Earth’s orbit.

The working name of the device is Near-Earth Object Surveyor. Mike Kelly, NASA’s research scientist on the project, said it would be able to quickly accelerate the pace of detecting space hazards that could pose a serious threat to Earth.

He added that the telescope will have a feature that will detect at least 90% of 140m asteroids within ten years of launch.
