linker

  1. a synthetic double-stranded OLIGONUCLEOTIDE, containing a sequence for a specific RESTRICTION ENZYME. A linker is used to attach COHESIVE ENDS to a DNA MOLECULE that has BLUNT ENDS, for use, for example, in GENE CLONING.
  2. DNA contained in a NUCLEOSOME that is not directly complexed with the HISTONES.

Table 9 lists all NEOs that come within 0.03 AU of the Earth during 2013, as computed by NASA's Near-Earth Object Program. In 1999, the Torino Impact Hazard Scale was adopted by the International Astronomical Union to help scientists communicate the potential danger of an impact.
"The impact odds as they stand now are less than one in a million, which makes us comfortable saying we can effectively rule out an Earth impact in 2036," Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said at the time.

"We would expect an event of this magnitude to occur once every 100 years on average," said Paul Chodas of Nasa's Near-Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Donald Yeomans, Manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office and the author of "Near-Earth Objects: Finding Them Before They Find Us", said there are a lot of small meteors in orbit, and little early warning system in place to detect them.
Paul Chodas, research scientist at the Near Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said that ground telescopes would have needed to point in the right direction at the right time to spot Friday's incoming meteor.
