DART: The Double Asteroid Redirection Test - Protecting Earth from Planetary Impacts new- Andrew Cheng & Andrew Rivkin -
JHU Applied Physics Laboratory
    Cosmos Club Oct 7, '22    MIKE's QUESTION on How long before Earth impact would that size spacecraft have had to hit it, IF it was on a collision course with Earth... to MISS IT? UTube Video - @ 1:26:35 to 1:30 - fm excellent NAS video     The impact is pretty impressive, increasing the brightness 10x and blowing off a shell of gas that might be some of the 50kg of propellant left- or the vaporized nut-roll asteroid! This 550 ft asteroid Dimorphos was about the size of the Great Pyramid, and would put a world of hurt on Earth if it hit us, probably killing hundreds of millions from tsunamis. There are maybe 20,000 NEOs that size ... just in 2020-21 6000 new NEA's have been found!
The Chelyabinsk rock would have killed 600K people had it detonated at 2-3 miles, rather than 25 miles (in a vacuum) & it was only 60 ft wide! The head-on DART impact was 4 mps and 1300 kg, maybe they could increase the weight 10x and speed 2-3x for a real deflector

SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES AT THE CENTERS OF GALAXIES- Accretion, Dynamical Interactions, Galaxy Evolution, and Cosmic History - Shobita Satyapal Department of Physics and Astronomy - George Mason University    
NATIONAL ACADEMY of SCIENCES- Cosmos Club June 17, '22    QUESTION on SIMILARITIES of SMBHs, each Billions of Solar Masses- @ 1:23:40 to 1:26 - NAS video
Actually her answer just before is spectacular, turns out SMBHs blast out jets from the poles, like pulsars, that are the hugest thing in the universe, blasting out galaxies of material in a matter of minutes or hours! Note this is not SMBH material, which is lost forever below the event horizon, but from the viciously rotating accretion disk which is accelerated to millions of degrees near the speed of light. That is what the new ring images of BH's are of- that radiating material before annihilation, many light-years in diameter. The scale of all this stuff is mind-boggling. SMBH's are present in the center of (most?) galaxies.

NASA Astrophysics Exploration, Origins, & Physics of the Cosmos new- MARK CLAMPIN - Astrophysics Division Director- NASA Headquarters; Fmr Goddard Sciences + Exploration Director + James Webb Observatory Proj Scientist     Cosmos Club Oct 21,'22    MIKE'S QUESTION on GRAVITATIONAL LENSING- @ 1:31:19 if doesn't cue - fm excellent NAS video    where you see the images of galaxies/stars smeared around gigantic superclusters or black holes in arcs (multiple times from same source). Those are pictures of the emptiest parts of the universe, so all you're seeing is the very oldest stuff 13 billion light years away! And they are all galaxies, quasars, SMBH... spectacularly huge to even be visible at that distance! INTERVIEW - 6:28 min mp3 lensing, dark matter-2:25, mult. planetary systems-3:45, transit of Venus-5:37, manned vs robot missions-5:45 Much lensing (pic) is done by huge superclusters or supermassive black holes.
