Astronomers have observed a record-breaking meteorite impact on the surface of the Moon.
Roberto Lupo's insight:

Meteoroids "fly" around us every day. Impacts are not increasing, our awareness is growing.

THE NEW COMMUNITY ABOUT SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
Roberto Lupo's insight:

The last one was really a good Friday 17th. Indeed, the final workshop of the SPARC project was really successful. 

The event entitled "Space Threats and Critrical Infrastructures: risks and Countermeasures" was sponsored by EC-DG-Home and hosted by the Italian Space Agency. Many experts differently involved joined the event: space threats scientific experts (The Solar Physics Department from Tor Vergata, IFAC-CNR, The Observatoire de Paris), space industries (Telespazio as  project coordiantor, SpaceDys) and critical infrastructures experts (Nitel consortium, itrust consulting, the EU Joint Research Centre). Moreover, many relevant actors proposed their speech: starting from the European Space Agency, the Italian Civil Protection, the Weather Forecasting Centre of the Italian Airforce, and concluding with Pagnanelli Risk solutions.  The workshop was a good meeting point for different actors, differently involved in the proposed topics.

 

A really good network of expert to be enriched in the future, in order to handle issues in the proper way.

Space Garbage: The Dark Cloud Above

Space Garbage: The Dark Cloud Above | Space Threats, Space Activities and other related issues | Scoop.it
A mass of debris from satellites and space missions is orbiting our planet—and it may be growing all the time

Via GiroMaxi
Roberto Lupo's insight:

Garbage is a growing problem: both in space  and at ground level. We should re-design our industrial processes to reduce wastes and reuse what already exists. Nature does not produce wastes, nature always produce resources.
