ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (05.19.19)

Aero Linx: Hope Air Our Mission: To provide Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home. Our Vision: That everyone in Canada has access to the healthcare they need, despite distance or cost of travel. In Canada, healthcare coverage starts at the door of the doctor’s office, but how you get to the doctor, and any related travel costs, fall to you. Over 20% of Canada’s population live in small and rural communities where specialized medical care is not available, and a trip to see a medical specialist might involve a 16 hour car or bus ride.  For low-income patients living in these communities, travelling long distances to their specialist, medical appointments comes at a cost of time and money; neither of which they can afford. This lack of access leads to delays in treatment and poorer health outcomes.

NASA's First Planetary Defense Technology Demo To Collide With Asteroid In 2022

Will Attempt To Change Asteroid's Orbit

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) – NASA’s first mission to demonstrate a planetary defense technique – will get one chance to hit its target, the small moonlet in the binary asteroid system Didymos. The asteroid poses no threat to Earth and is an ideal test target: measuring the change in how the smaller asteroid orbits about the larger asteroid in a binary system is much easier than observing the change in a single asteroid's orbit around the Sun.
