Scientists Recognize First Asteroid Intruder From Another Solar System and Stuck in Ours

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 07:51

For the first time ever, scientists believe they have identified an asteroid born beyond our solar system that strayed into our neighborhood and got stuck. The newly studied asteroid, called 2015 BZ509, was discovered three years ago and has always caught scientists’ eyes for being a little strange: It orbits the sun in the opposite direction to everything else in the solar system. “Oumuamua is a tourist and BZ is a long-term resident,” co-author Fathi Namouni, an astronomer at the Côte d'Azur Observatory in France, told Newsweek.

Drought, armyworms cut Malawi maize crop by 19 pct - minister

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 07:31

Malawi's maize output declined by 19.4 percent in the 2017/18 farming year to 2.8 million tons due to damage caused by drought and crop-eating armyworms, Agriculture Minister Joseph Mwanamvekha said on Monday. "This (decline) is because of dry spells experienced in some parts of the country and the armyworm invasion," Mwanamvekha told Reuters. Malawi produced 3.5 million tons of maize in the 2016/17 season but banned exports of its staple crop earlier this year and said it was considering restocking its national grain reserves.
