As the TCI Telecommunications Commission celebrates a decade of existence in the Turks and Caicos, there was a late day workshop Wednesday at the Palms Resort where talk turned to how these services are digging into the profitability of companies like LIME, Digicel and PTV.John Williams, Chairman, Telecommunications Commission: “We believe in freedom of information and yet to block such services, what would we be doing? Stopping the flow of information and so it is a difficult issue to deal with as we know that many of our operators are really hurting because of persons who are not licensed here are actually taking revenue from their area here in the islands where they are paying all of the fees and providing all of the infrastructure; so it was a discussion that was needed.”A founder of the Commission, Stuart MacPherson returned to TCI and led the panel discussion where he said he had hoped for more robust engagement on the issue, because it means these companies will have to be extremely creative if they are going to remain relevant. Stuart McPherson, Consultant: “Obviously TV, people doing streaming services and so on, especially in relatively small markets like this that is going to be a big problem for the small cable companies and so on.”It was agreed that while the change in how people communicate and are entertained will not necessarily drive these companies into extinction, MacPherson said it will alter how they make money.

The options are limited. SCIEPRO Nuking an asteroid out of the sky to protect the Earth is great fodder for the silver screen. However, new research suggests that simply blowing up a threatening space rock may not save us quite as simply as we might hope. Scientists find rogue asteroids roaming our solar system often — just last month they discovered yet another one that could (maybe) strike the Earth. One of the ways to deal with these potential threats is to impact them, knocking them off course. NASA is currently planning an asteroid redirect mission where it’ll send a kamikaze spacecraft into the moonlet of an asteroid known as Didymos, barreling into the rock to shoo it away.Yet we haven’t had a lot of opportunities to study asteroids up close, so we can’t appreciate exactly how they are structured or how they might be destroyed. It has been believed that bigger asteroids may be easier to destroy because they would be more likely to have cracks and weaknesses that make them easy to blow apart. Thus, if an asteroid were to threaten our peaceful existence, what should we do?”Are we better off breaking it into small pieces, or nudging it to go a different direction? And if the latter, how much force should we hit it with to move it away without causing it to break?” asks Charles El Mir, lead author on the study, in a press release. Those questions are exactly what he and a team at Johns Hopkins University set out to answer.In the simulation, an asteroid splits apart but is pulled back together by the effect of gravity. This animation is sped up — this phase occurs over many hours. Johns Hopkins University/YouTube Their findings, published in an upcoming issue of the journal Icarus, are based on computer simulations of asteroid impacts. They plugged in parameters that digitally recapitulated a small asteroid, about 1 kilometer wide, impacting a large asteroid, about 25 times bigger, while travelling at 5 kilometers per second.A previous model had shown that the large asteroid was obliterated by this type of collision — but the Johns Hopkins team found an entirely different endgame. According to their modelling, the asteroid would greatly fracture in the fractions of a second after an impact.Over the hours after an impact though, the team showed the large asteroid broke apart into smaller pieces but wasn’t entirely obliterated as previous research had shown. The fragments that flew off the asteroid were then pulled back together by the damaged asteroid core, due to the overwhelming effect of gravity.Thanks, gravity.”We used to believe that the larger the object, the more easily it would break, because bigger objects are more likely to have flaws,” said El Mir. “Our findings, however, show that asteroids are stronger than we used to think and require more energy to be completely shattered.”The strength of the asteroid to resist such an impact allows it to preserve its gravitational pull, which could wreak havoc if we were to blindly fire rockets at an incoming rock. Understanding these interactions better prepare us for the decisions that will have to be made, should an asteroid be set on colliding with the Earth.Originally published March 6 at 7:13 p.m. PTUpdate, March 7 at 1:15 a.m.: Clarifies earlier experiment.
