4-year-old girl dead, two seriously injured in collision near Grassland

  4-year-old girl dead, two seriously injured in collision near Grassland A four-year-old girl is dead, and two adults were taken to hospital with serious injuries after a two-vehicle collision near Grassland, Alta. Saturday evening. RCMP say the collision happened at around 5 p.m. on Highway 55, around one kilometre west of Grassland. A westbound pickup truck lost control and went into the oncoming lane, striking an SUV travelling east. The male driver of the truck sustained serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital by ground ambulance, before being taken to an Edmonton hospital by air ambulance.

' Oumuamua : ' space cigar's' tumble hints at violent past - www.envirolink.org. The space interloper ‘ Oumuamua is spinning chaotically and will carry on doing so for more than a billion years. “At some point or another it’s been in a collision ,” says Dr Wes Fraser from Queen’s University.

And the interstellar object will continue to spin for billions of years as it journeys through space, scientists have reported in a study published in Nature Astronomy.

This is the latest of several revelations following the first-ever discovery of a solar system invader last October. Initially believed to be a comet, then an asteroid, scientists think the wandering “interstellar object” is a hunk of ice wrapped in organic sun-blocking material.

Alien Oumuamua asteroid spinning CHAOTICALLY out of control from violent collision . “We now know that beyond its unusual elongated shape, this space cucumber had origins around another star, has had a violent past and tumbles chaotically because of it.

"At some point or another it's been in a collision," Queen's University, Belfast, research fellow and lecturer Wes Fraser told the BBC.

The research team watched 'Oumuamua’s brightness change over time to model exactly how it was spinning.

'Oumuamua “appears to be in an excited rotational state undergoing non-principal axis rotation” the study authors wrote. This unusual “excited” movement is better known as “tumbling.”

“Tumbling is an unusual state of rotation,” Fraser said during Sunday’s episode of the BBC’s long-running Sky at Night show. “It quickly starts to wobble around chaotically.”

The icy cigar was probably knocked askew by a violent collision with another object. The researchers don’t know exactly when this happened, but suspect it took place before 'Oumuamua left its home stellar system.

"It's hard to know if it was during planet formation or after the planet formation process," Fraser said during the show. "Certainly, more collisions happen while planets are growing than afterwards, so that’s a very good guess. But unfortunately we can’t get a high-resolution image of this thing to see what kind of crater is on it that might be attributed to the collision that caused it to start tumbling."

The team think 'Oumuamua may eventually move less chaotically.

"The tumbling actually causes stresses and strains internal to the object, and that slowly but surely squeezes and pulls on the object just like tides on the Earth to remove energy from the spin," Fraser said.

But, at least for the next few billion years, the space invader is destined to continue its topsy-turvy spin.

Perrette is afraid of what might happen now that the man who attacked her has been released from a psychiatric institution. Perrette, who is best-known for her role on “NCIS,” told Fox 11 that she is “afraid to go out” now that her life is “forever changed” after being attacked by a homeless man in her L.A. neighborhood in 2015.“I'm afraid the next word I hear about this guy is that he's killed a female,” the 48-year-old told the news site.LAPD is aware that the transient, named David Merck, has been released from the state facility and will respond to any reports of an alleged crime, acccording to Fox 11.
