<![CDATA[Alex added new site]]>An asteroid which measures approximately a mile wide and is orbited by its own moon is expected to pass by the Earth on Saturday, May 25, at speeds of 48,000 mph. The asteroid, which was discovered 20 years ago, is dubbed by NASA as Asteroid 1999 KW4, and is expected to be visible until May 27. Despite its “potentially hazardous” classification by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory’s Minor Planet Center, Asteroid 1999 KW4 is expected to pass by Earth safely at 23:05 UTC. The closest distance the space rock is expected to be from Earth is estimated to be 3,216,271 miles—or 13.5 times the distance to the moon, reported the Mail Online. The asteroid is described by the Las Cumbres Observatory as “slightly squashed at the poles and with a mountain ridge around the equator, which runs all the way around the asteroid. Full Article >>

Nearly all of them were caught before they had a chance to become “active” users of the social network. In a new report, Facebook said it saw a “steep increase” in the creation of abusive, fake accounts. While most of these fake accounts were blocked “within minutes” of their creation, the use of computers to generate millions of accounts at a time meant not only that Facebook caught more of the fake accounts, but that more of them slipped through. As a result, the company estimates that 5% of its 2.4 billion monthly active users are fake accounts, or about 119 million. This is up from an estimated 3% to 4% in the previous six-month report.
