Around Town DOD Can Say Sayonara to CRs Immigrant Investor Program Gains

first_imgPresident Donald Trump on Friday signed a two-bill spending package that fully funds the Pentagon in fiscal 2019, lifting defense officials from the challenge of coping with short-term spending measures for the first time in 10 years. The legislation’s enactment marks a rare achievement, especially after the president one week earlier signed a three-bill package funding the department’s military construction programs in FY 2019. The defense spending bill provides $674.4 billion in discretionary budget authority and represents a $17 billion increase in DOD’s base budget funding over the FY 2018 allocation. It fully funds the administration’s requested 16,400 end-strength increase this year, including boosting active forces by 15,600 personnel, reports Military Times. … While its long-term fate remains uncertain, an immigration program which has provided a significant source of financing for base redevelopment projects has been extended through Dec. 7. The EB-5 Immigrant Investor program grants 10,000 visas annually to foreigners and their families who have invested $1 million in projects in the United States that create at least 10 jobs, or who have invested $500,000 if the money supports areas of high unemployment. Numerous questions have been raised about the program, though, and lawmakers from both parties have proposed terminating it, reports CQ.DOD photo by Michael Strasser Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

NASA drops spacecraft into orbit around potentially hazardous asteroid Bennu

Here’s what happens. NASA also released a GIF of the various surveys Osiris-Rex carried out after arriving at Bennu in early December The series of images, captured between Nov. 30 and Dec. 31, helped the team more accurately determine Bennu’s mass, which ensured that the orbital insertion would proceed smoothly. You can see the GIF, captured by Osiris-Rex’s black-and-white NavCam, below:Enlarge ImageOsiris-Rex surveyed 101955 Bennu before slipping into orbit on December 31.  NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin Space The orbital period, lasting until mid-February, is expected to provide additional details about Bennu’s gravity, orientation and spin, along with a better understanding of its mass. All those observations should lead to completing one of the chief objectives for Osiris-Rex: retrieve a sample from Bennu’s surface and fly it back to Earth. In 2020, the spacecraft will extend a specially designed arm, called Tagsam, for a brief high-five with the asteroid. The arm will blow nitrogen gas onto the surface of Bennu, kicking up handfuls of dirt, which the spacecraft will fly back to Earth in 2023.A successful pickpocketing will give scientists a more detailed look at the kind of compounds that make up the potentially hazardous object.Bennu is the near-Earth object that’s second most likely to collide with our planet, only outranked by an asteroid known as 1950 DA on NASA’s Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale. Though they’re ranked as hazardous, the actual likelihood they would ever collide with Earth is incredibly low — Bennu could smack into Earth between 2169 and 2199. 1950 DA shouldn’t trouble you at all. If it were to hit, that impact wouldn’t occur until 2880. Sci-Techcenter_img Comments Now playing: Watch this: 2 Fly, Osiris-Rex! Fly! NASA/Goddard Visiting a distant, icy world that looks like a snowman certainly had space enthusiasts enraptured in the first days of 2019, but some other historic NASA news slipped through in the final hours of 2018 — and it might reveal just as much about our solar system.The asteroid-chasing Osiris-Rex (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) performed its own historic maneuver on New Year’s Eve. An eight-second thruster burn on Dec. 31 placed the spacecraft in orbit around 101955 Bennu, which drifts through the solar system’s asteroid belt between the Earth and Mars.By inserting itself into orbit around Bennu, Osiris-Rex will survey the asteroid from a distance of only about 1 mile (1.75 kilometers) from its center. Bennu’s small size creates an incredibly tiny gravitational force, so maintaining that orbit will require lots of little adjustments, made by NASA and its collaborating organizations. “The gravity of Bennu is so small, forces like solar radiation and thermal pressure from Bennu’s surface become much more relevant and can push the spacecraft around in its orbit much more than if it were orbiting around Earth or Mars, where gravity is by far the most dominant force,” said Dan Wibben, maneuver and trajectory design lead.
