Predicting outgassing and instabilityof asteroid TB 145 in passing of the Earth’s orbit

The recent discovery of the asteroid TB 145 (also categorized as comet, Because of its highly eccentric orbit and inclination)[1] is a good opportunity for a precise observation by the observatory and institutes all over the world. From its orbital path[1], it is predicted that it will pass the orbit of the earth from the distance of 1.3 times the lunar distance from the Earth.

Astrobiology Department was established

Astrobiology Department was established


Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. This multidisciplinary field encompasses the search for habitable environments in our Solar System and habitable planets outside our Solar System, the search for evidence of prebiotic chemistry and life on Mars and other bodies in our Solar System, laboratory and field research into the origins and early evolution of life on Earth, and studies of the potential for life to adapt to challenges on Earth and in space.
Since this is a very new field of science all over the world, which is separated recently, we had not organized scientific researches in Iran yet. Now International Occultation Timing Association - Middle East branch (IOTA/ME) which is active in Iran and had some related projects before, has established an independent Astrobiology department. Therefore, we invite researchers and professors who have related outstanding scientific projects, and also the ones interested in this field, for cooperation and further researches.
For more cooperation please complete and send the registration form to sebadirad@iota-me.com up to 29 September 2015. For the next step you will be notified by email and more information will be sent to you.

Best regards
Saleheh Ebadird
President of Astrobiology Department
