Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+ Has Been Spotted In The Wild

Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+ Has Been Spotted In The Wild We're fast approaching the anticipated release of the Galaxy Note 10, which is due early next month. And while there have been plenty for rumours and leaks, there hasn't been a real, in the wild, sighting. Until now. TechTalkTV has had their hands on the Galaxy Note 10+ and revealed that the expected 'Pro' tag is not happening. While the Note 10+ takes plenty of design cues from the Galaxy S10, such as the punch-hole camera, there are plenty of differences. While everyone expected the hole-punch camera on the front, Samsung has moved it from the side, which is where we see the front camera in the Galaxy S10, to the centre.

Thanks to astronomers and their constant search for new bodies moving throughout our solar system, we know about a lot of asteroids. Many of them have long, elliptical orbits around our Sun, swinging through our system — sometimes making close passes of Earth along the way — around the Sun and then back out again.

Now, researchers have spotted an asteroid that never really ventures all that far from the Sun, even at its further point. The object, known as 2019 LF6, completes an orbit of our star every 151 days, and comes far closer to the Sun than even Mercury.

LF6 travels in an elliptical orbit that takes it within Mercury’s orbit, around the Sun, and then back out past the orbit of Venus. It never gets close to Earth, and nobody knew it existed until now. The asteroid is estimated to be around a kilometer in width, which makes it even more remarkable that it’s remained hidden for this long.

After the dinosaurs died, lichens found a way The asteroid that destroyed much of life on Earth allowed other species to thrive. A golden shield lichen on tree bark. Thorsten Lumbsch, curator of lichenized fungi at the Field Museum, uses his subway commute to read scientific papers. “I like to read the stuff that has nothing to do with my research,” he says—which is how he found himself totally absorbed in a paper about the asteroid that collided with Earth 66 million years ago, decimating dinosaurs, birds, insects, and all manner of other life.

Apollo asteroids , on the other hand, intersect with Earth’s orbit as the planet travels around the Sun . The second of the Wednesday’s flybys will be 2019 WF, first spotted by NASA’s asteroid hunters just two days ago on November 17.

Astronomers just found an asteroid that zips around the sun every 165 Earth days — the shortest year for any known space rock. The asteroid zooms around the sun on an elliptical path that takes it inside Mercury's orbit at closest approach and slightly beyond Venus at its most distant point, the

“Thirty years ago, people started organizing methodical asteroid searches, finding larger objects first, but now that most of them have been found, the bigger ones are rare birds,” Tom Price of Caltech explains. “LF6 is very unusual both in orbit and in size—its unique orbit explains why such a large asteroid eluded several decades of careful searches.”

Asteroids that orbit particularly close to the Sun and never travel out past Earth into the deeper reaches of the solar system are often difficult for astronomers to spot. They have to dedicate their observation resources to very narrow windows of time just before sunrise and after sunset, hoping to spot the objects before the Sun’s light overwhelms the imaging instruments.

'I will tell you if there is something to announce': James Packer breaks his silence on engagement rumours - after his girlfriend Kylie Lim was spotted wearing a $6,700 rose gold ring

'I will tell you if there is something to announce': James Packer breaks his silence on engagement rumours - after his girlfriend Kylie Lim was spotted wearing a $6,700 rose gold ring His girlfriend was spotted wearing a $6,700 rose gold ring by Bulgari during a recent trip to Capri, Italy. And now James Packer has broken his silence on rumours he secretly proposed to socialite Kylie Lim on his multimillion dollar superyacht. In his first public comment on the speculation, the 51-year-old businessman told The Sydney Morning Herald that he and Kylie weren't engaged - yet. © AAP Image/Richard Wainwright Mariah Carey is reportedly dating Australian billionaire James Packer. 'There's nothing to announce,' James told the Private Sydney gossip column.

Scientists In the last few years have studied the first observed interstellar visitors to our solar system. They include a comet called 2I/Borisov, spotted in 2019 and still passing through, and an asteroid called 'Oumuamua that zipped through quickly in 2017.

For the first time ever, astronomers have discovered an asteroid that ’s entered our solar system from interstellar space. The object is shaped like a cigar and is about a The asteroid was first spotted in October by Meech's team using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope atop Mount Haleakala in Maui, Hawaii.

LF6 has the shortest “year” of any known asteroid, and while it isn’t of particular interest to scientists as a near-Earth object, it’s a special discovery.

British Open 2019: Tiger Woods loves 'stress' of major golf but frustrated by results.
With the projected cutline hovering around 1 over, Woods will not be around for the weekend in Northern Ireland. Since his dramatic Masters win in April, Woods will have missed the cut in two majors and tied 21st at the U.S. Open – a return that does not sit well with the 15-time major winner. "It's more frustrating than anything else because this is a major championship and I love playing in these events," said Woods, who has missed multiple cuts at majors in the same season for just the second time in his career. "I love the atmosphere.
