in the last episode of democracy, maybe we explore how sharon's eldest lead the flight, the self determination residing at that time. thinking that the na coast was the same as thinking of children's government by the people on al jazeera ah 3 to one. lift up. fountain 9 dark. i'm now that's a lot to the mission that one day could save the earth. a space crash will crash into a small space. rock detest. how to stop an asteroid. crashing into earth. nice view . ah. the whole rahman you're watching out is there a life my headquarters here in doha? also coming up the u. s. and 5 other countries will tap into that oil reserves and
10:01 am
a bit to bring down soaring fuel prices. also calls for a cease fire in ethiopia. video shows thousands of government troops being held as prisoners of war by to grind rattles. lastly, un warns the future of lebanon's children is at stake, millions going hungry or false to drop out of school. ah, welcome to the program. nasa has launched a spacecraft that's going to deliberately smash into a small space rock sciences. they can alter its course. it's a test run in case a giant space rock needs to be redirected away from earth or the asteroid. they are aiming to hit this time. isn't a threat to the planet e. some hagi is a planetary scientists towards me alive from los angeles. good. have you with us live on al jazeera sir. i mean it's a hollywood storyline,
10:02 am
now becoming reality sort of changing the trajectory of an incoming asteroid. i mean, nasa really seems to be planning for all event dualities. yes. and so is he saying, so it's not really a hearty wood story. it's a story that did happen before, so it's far away from being it science fiction is part of our history. so let's all remember that the dinosaurs were stronger than human beings and probably more distributed than human being on the surface of the earth. and they disappeared 18000000 years ago by an asteroids. why faith our, our planet? so the chances of being hit again by another asteroid, it's frost, is thought is far from being a science fiction. so how does this site and nasa project actually work and how far away is, is asteroid? so this is very fascinating project. so it's very so this, this asteroids, it's 11000000 kilometer away from the earth. and, and the project will send
10:03 am
a spacecraft that will hit this binary idea thrones, which is that the more force and dim office is a moon rotating around this more a series of demos. and so that hit would happen at the speed of 24000 kilometer per hour. so it is $25.00 claim. the speed of a plane on earth. and that speed that hit would provide would change the dynamic of the moon of the asteroids. that's mon asteroids, which is 150 meters in diameter by one percent. and we would be able to measure that small deviation, changing the rotation of the orbit of that small 2 bodies of each other from the earth. and that would tend us a lot about if you want to deviate completely small asteroids from the earth. what
10:04 am
type of spacecraft, what speed, what weight, what impact we need to have to deflect an astros? when will we know whether this experiment has been a success? because the results themselves will have to be analyzed over some time. so in addition to that, the spacecraft will hit the more that would be a small, it start in cube sat that will, will, will be f aiming that impact and attending back these these, these images in the to the earth between brackets. so it would take 2 days after that, the head, our mission from the space agency and less to 10 year when the present demarco's. and we'll study more, the impact and the change of the cap. and due to this, to this, to the dark impact, of course, you talked early on in this interview about how the dinosaurs were made extinct by an asteroid hitting the millions of years ago. but the earth has been hit by
10:05 am
asteroids in the not too recent present. how much is the earth under threat from asteroids and meteors hitting its surface right now? and should we be worried? i think we should worry because not because we want people to worry, but because these impact happens and because deflections of the asteroids by impact between, between each other happens every day. so we can encounter any one of these and we need we have a strong observation program, but we don't have a deflection program, and this is the 1st one. so, asteroid and the older, a few hundreds of meter over 100 meter and plus the other 3rd 2 to 2 years. and we need to quantify that threat. and we need to quantify our deflection. capability to the fence is a fascinating project, and we'll, we'll keep if i place i for the name and e son had g in los angeles. thanks so much
