In just a few days, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will conduct a flyby of Pluto, giving humankind its first-ever up-close look of the dwarf planet and its five moons.
Research by a UT team is receiving ample news coverage including on The Weather Channel, Space.com, and Times of India. Ben Rozitis, a postdoctoral researcher; Eric MacLennan, a doctoral candidate; and Joshua Emery, an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, studied near-Earth asteroid 1950 DA and discovered that the body, which
Researchers at UT have made a novel discovery that may potentially protect the world from future collisions with asteroids.
The Knoxville News Sentinel interviewed Joshua Emery, assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences, about the 10-ton meteor that broke into pieces over Russia. Emery said the astronomical event is not terribly uncommon.
The work of a UT professor has been featured in TIME. Josh Emery, assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences, has helped reveal a rare orbital shift and the density of an asteroid that will pass close to Earth.

Most people know that some planets have moons but would be surprised to know that some asteroids do, too. According to Joshua Emery, assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences at UT Knoxville, about 20 percent of them do.
The plot has the makings of a summer blockbuster: An asteroid on a potential collision course with our planet holds the power to destroy life on Earth but also holds clues to what seeded it with the ingredients for life. One of the people seeking to recover its precious planetary science clues, while at the same time learning enough to prevent any collision with Earth, is UT Knoxville’s own Josh Emery.
