Russia is prepared to avoid the 'Revelation Space'

Russian scientists plan to send an automatic station research into the orbit of the asteroid Apophis, the greatest threat to Earth, to avoid possible 'Revelation'.

The primary mission of the station will be put into orbit a small satellite Apophis will have to specify the path of the object until 2036, when it is believed, this would collide with our planet. The satellite is equipped with an autonomous radio beacon and a radioisotope power source and a battery.

Also in the framework of the scientific mission includes research on the physical and chemical characteristics of the asteroid, its soil and its structure and the space around it. Planning a 'landing' on the surface of the object.From the technical point of view, the mission may be carried out from 2015, Russian experts say.

Scientists estimated that in 2029 Apophis, about 270 meters in diameter, too will approach the Earth and will be about 36,000 kilometers of our planet, a distance equivalent to the geostationary orbit of artificial satellites. This approach can change the orbit of the asteroid, which could lead to their collision with Earth in 2036 during the next cycle of movement of the object.

Space experts from around the world are developing various projects to avoid potential disaster. Among the solutions deck including the use of nuclear weapons to destroy Apophis when it is still a safe distance from Earth.

The UN warns that we only have 10 years to avoid an environmental disaster

Humanity has only ten years to avoid global environmental disaster, full of irreversible consequences, as stated in the declaration of "State of the Planet", dedicated to the upcoming UN summit on sustainable development issues.

If not, chances are that we will witness a series of breakdowns in the systems that support people's lives, such as oceans and land, according to an important meeting to safeguard the future of the planet.

"Research now shows that the continuity of the Earth system, which has supported the welfare of human civilization in recent centuries is at risk," said some of the world's most important filmmakers of global environmental change in the first declaration of the "State of the Planet".

"We have been much better to document the problem and understanding of the processes that engage with the solutions," said Mark Stafford Smith, scientific director of the flagship of adaptation to climate in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, national science agency Australia.

Rockström Johan, executive director of Stockholm Environment Institute in Sweden, said it was "absolutely scandalous" that scientists had not responded to questions like "How much biodiversity is needed to maintain the landscapes of our economy?".

He told a press conference: "I and many scientists are still deeply frustrated because we know with certainty whether we are moving to an increase of two to six degree temperature - which is not satisfactory for decision makers."

The statement said that three changes in the last decade are warnings from scientists in a more qualitative than before.First, a decade of research is leading to a consensus that we live in a new era, the Anthropocene, in which humans are dominating the global processes.

Secondly, science has revealed that many of the planetary processes are interconnected, as are increasingly society and economy. This interconnection can bring stability and accelerate innovation, says the statement, but also leaves us vulnerable to sudden crises and fast.

A third social survey has shown that in our current forms of government, global environmental change is not effectively with problems like climate change and biodiversity loss. Many researchers conclude that local, national and regional are also needed as an insurance policy against failures of global governance.

In this sense, the authors of the declaration, met last week at a scientific conference in London, and urged the United Nations to pay more attention to the environment, and establish a Council for Sustainable Development, and to coordinate the social, economic and environmental benefits worldwide.

To change the situation, not to introduce new technologies. We have to change the values, beliefs and goals. This desire is likely to require radical reforms and far-reaching, the statement said.

The statement is consistent with some of the ideas being promoted for inclusion in the agreement of Rio +20, which was finalized at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (20-22 June) in Brazil.

These include: the need to go beyond GDP (gross domestic product), taking into account the value of natural capital in measuring progress, a framework for developing global sustainability objectives, the creation of a Council Sustainable Development United Nations to integrate social, economic and environmental policies worldwide, newspaper production and analysis of global sustainability.

A key outcome of the meeting was agreement on the need to develop a plan to refocus the science of global change, the "Future Earth", which aims to bring together a wide variety of disciplines to answer questions that societies need to make against changes.

Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, who attended the final day, praised the initiative of Future Earth as "unprecedented in its creativity."

Liz Thompson, executive coordinator of the Rio +20, told the meeting that many of the messages of the scientific community, which has been pushing for some time about the deal Rio +20, as it had in the 'draft zero 'of the outcome of Rio +20, and that the declaration would be to "increase pressure on politicians to get the message and act accordingly."

Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said in a recorded speech that "carry forward" a recommendation from their high-level scientific group and to appoint a science advisor.

The Co-chairman of the meeting, Lidia Brito, director of science policy and capacity building in natural sciences at the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), said: "We have a positive message : strong leadership from all sectors, and the use of [our connectivity] more, offering the hope that the risk of long-term crisis of the environment can be minimized. "

However, some delegates said that while the conference attracted natural and social scientists, was less successful in attracting politicians and business representatives.

Nigel Cameron, president of US-based Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies, told the meeting that he did not see venture capitalists or heads of research and industry development "around the table ...

And others said that scientists might be overestimating the influence they could have. Carlos Nobre, the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, spoke of "the harsh reality of power against political science ... no matter how good we become communicators we have to recognize that it is very effective at blocking of action.
