    Meteor shower in 2019 could come with loads of surprises: Inside story

    It is likely that the Earth will witness a massive meteor shower in the year 2019. A new calculation by Mark Boslough, a physicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, shows that tree-fall pattern in Siberia is consistent with an asteroid coming from the same area in the sky as the Taurid meteor swarm. The Taurids meteor showers occur twice a year, in late June and late October or early November. Generally Beta Taurid shower takes place in the month of June. They strike during the day, when sunlight washes out the "shooting stars" that are visible during the nighttime meteor shower later in the year.

    Traces of water found in 17 asteroids

    Japanese infrared satellite AKARI has discovered evidences of water in 17 asteroids. It is for the first time that scientists have found water traces which will possibly to the understanding of water distribution in our solar system. Also, the new discovery will help scientists to dig out the facts about evolution of asteroids and origin of water on Earth.
