The Torino Scale, adopted by the IAU in 1999, is a tool for categorizing potential Earth impact events. An integer scale ranging from 0 to 10 with associated color coding, it is intended primarily to facilitate public communication by the asteroid impact hazard monitoring community. The scale captures the likelihood and consequences of a potential impact event, but does not consider the time. The Torino Scale uses an integer scale from 0 to 10. A 0 indicates an object has a negligibly small chance of collision with the Earth, compared with the usual background noise of collision events, or is too small to penetrate Earth's atmosphere intact. A 10 indicates that a collision is certain, and the impacting object is large enough to precipitate a global disaster

Impact Risk Assessment: An Introduction; NEODyS dynamisch aktualisierte Liste mit Bewertung auch nach Turiner Skala (TS) Einzelnachweis The Torino scale is a color-coded advisory system that enables near-Earth object (NEO) researchers to place objects within a potential threat range from zero -- where there is virtually no chance of collision, to 10 -- where global catastrophe is certain. It was first adopted in 1999 by a working group of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) at a meeting co-sponsored by The Planetary. Torino Scale (max.) Maximum detected hazard rating according to the Torino impact hazard scale, based on the tabulated impact probability and impact energy. The Torino scale is defined only for potential impacts less than 100 years in the future For more on NASA Science, visit https://science.nasa.gov. Published: Jul 22, 1999. A Richter Scale for Cosmic Collisions. Space Science News home Planetary scientists have developed the Torino Scale, a new means of conveying the risks associated with asteroids and comets that might collide with the Earth FROM A NASA HQ PRESS RELEASE July 22, 1999: Planetary scientists have developed a new.
Asteroid 2004 VD17 Classed as Torino Scale 2. Status Report From: Jet Propulsion Laboratory Posted: Wednesday, March 1, 2006 . At the end of February, orbital calculations for near-earth-asteroid. The maximum Torino and Palermo Scale values are listed, as well as the number of tabulated potential impacts and their corresponding cumulative Palermo Scale value and cumulative impact probability (shown in the the first table). Certain parameter values depend upon the specific impact event in question, but they change little among the various table entries. For this reason we tabulate only. According to the Torino Scale, a rating of 2 indicates a discovery, which may become routine with expanded searches, of an object making a somewhat close but not highly unusual pass near the Earth. While meriting attention by astronomers, there is no cause for public attention or public concern as an actual collision is very unlikely. New telescopic observations very likely will lead to re.
Presumably the Torino scale is meant to rate how urgently politicians should react to an impact risk, possibly based on the likely effect on people now living. The Palermo scale is about risk (relative to 'background') with no arbitrary date cutoffs. Palermo scale seems to multiply risk by effect by 1/time-to-likely-impact. - Rod57 11:28, 29 May 2011 (UTC) Huge jumps in value as estimates. The Torino scale, a risk-assessment system similar to the Richter scale used for earthquakes, was adopted by a working group of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in 1999 at a meeting in Torino, Italy. On the scale, zero means virtually no chance of collision, while 10 means certain global catastrophe. The idea was to create a simple system conveying clear, consistent information.
NASA's Near-Earth Object (NEO) web-site. Data related to Earth impact risk, close-approaches, and much more. Skip Navigation Much of the utility of the Palermo Scale lies in its ability to carefully assess the risk posed by less threatening Torino Scale 0 events, which comprise nearly all of the potential impacts detected to date. Objects are prioritized according to their Palermo Scale. The Torino scale is a major advance in our ability to explain the hazard posed by a particular NEO, said Carl Pilcher, science director for solar system exploration in the NASA Office of Space Science in Washington, D.C. If we ever find an object with a greater value than one, the scale will be an effective way to communicate the resulting risk. Naming the newly proposed hazard scale. The Torino Scale value for a close approach event is based upon both collision probability and the estimated kinetic energy (collision consequence), where the scale value can change as probability and energy estimates are refined by further data. On the scale, Category 1 corresponds to collision probabilities that are comparable to the current.
. It combines two types of data—probability of impact and estimated kinetic yield—into a single hazard value. A rating of 0 means the hazard is equivalent to the background hazard (defined as the average risk posed by objects of the same. The Torino Scale, adopted in 1999, is akin to a Richter scale for asteroid impacts. The vast majority of the 4000 or so near-Earth objects (NEOs) detected so far have been assigned to level zero.

The actual NASA estimates at the time were 1 in 233; these resulted in a Torino scale rating of 2, the first time any asteroid had received a rating above 1. Later that day, based on a total of 64 observations, the estimates were changed to 1 in 62 (1.6%), resulting in an update to the initial report and an upgrade to a Torino scale rating of 4 Torino Scale: Asteroid 2011 MD came close to Earth : Automatic translation : Category: asteroids and comets Updated June 01, 2013: The asteroid 2011 MD, 10 meters in diameter was close to Earth, June 27, 2011, it passed just 12,300 miles from Earth.The asteroid 2011 MD, monitored by NASA, is a small NEO, about ten meters in diameter, barely
www.nasa.go Torino Impact Hazard Scale. See also: Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale A risk-assessment scale, with integer values from 0 to 10, used to describe an approach of a particular asteroid to Earth in terms of the likelihood and consequences of its collision with Earth The scale was devised by Richard Binzel a professor of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT.After five years of work the Torino scale was officially endorsed by the IAU on Thursday July 22 nd 1999 at the United Nations' UNISPACE III conference in Vienna, Austria.The first version of the scale was callled A Near-Earth Object Hazard Index and was presented at a United Nations. The 2021 NASA Scale Classic qualified pilots will be selected from the contests held between September 2020 through September 2021. Any contestants that qualify 8 weeks prior to the 2021 NSC will have the option to compete in the 2022 NSC rather than 2021. For the NSC in 2021, pilots that competed in TOP GUN 2020 and the Texas State Championship will be eligible for qualification. Also all.
