Filter and browse the Sentry database, a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog for future impact with Earth over the next 100 years.
Inspect the magnitude, diameter, mass, velocity in space and the entry velocity determining the impact energy. Find out the probability and orbital parameters along with type of analysis used.
For every object examine the list of potential impacts and for every event the time coordinates, the impact energy and the probability, the predicted Palermo and Torino scale, and orbital detailsls.
Install the Asteroid Apple Watch companion app and scroll through the next encounters just raising your wrist and checking the watch.
All relevant data in just one glimpse, the time of encounter, the diameter of the object, the distance, speed and computed impact energy.
Keep an eye on the next approaching asteroid directly on the springboard of your iPhone with the new widget, or just tap on it to open the full application.
