Initial development of a new era weapons bit delayed because of fears scientist Edward Teller, who took part in the project.

The latest data, voiced at the conference held in Miami the American Astronomical Society, suggests that in the recent past Neptune collided with a comet. According to a research subject Emmanuel Lellouche (Emmanuel Lellouch) from Paris Observatory, the results are consistent with its proposed back in 2005, a model of collision with an object the size of 2 km, which occurred about 200 years ago. These calculations were based on much less accurate measurements using ground-based telescope.
