(278361) 2007 JJ43, information leakage

(278361) 2007 JJ43 is a transneptunian object discovered in May of 2007. It has a perihelion of 40.3 AU and an aphelion of 55.7 AU. There is a prediscovery image back to 2002. In 2010 (during the discovery of 2010 RF43), further observation were made.

Information leakage happens whenever a system that is designed to be closed to an eavesdropper reveals some information to unauthorized parties nonetheless. (Wikipedia)

(278361) 2007 JJ43 is related with all types of information leakage, like WikiLeaks (founded in December of 2006), which revealed in 2010 classified documents of Afghanistan and Iraq war.

(120347) 2004 SB60 [Salacia] is a classical Kuiper belt object discovered in September of 2004. There is a prediscovery image back to July of 1982. It has a perihelion of 37.4 AU and an aphelion of 46.5 AU. It has an inclination of 23.9º. It has a diameter of about 550km.

A moon of (120347) 2004 SB60 [Salacia], with a diamater of about 290 km, was discovered in July of 2006 [Actaea].

In the year 1982 appeared the movie "Tron", were the main character is a software developer that is blocked by an artificial intelligence called "Master Control Program". In the year 2004, appeared the movie "I-Robot", in which there is an artificial intelligence called "VIKI" that remains the one in "Tron". Also, that year (2004), appeared several movies with the main theme as 'refuse access', like "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid", "Wicker Park", "The Hunted Mansion" (2003), also "Cars" (Pixar) and "The Departed" in the year 2006 and "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" in the year 1982.

A firewall is a device or set of devices designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access while permitting legitimate communications to pass. (Wikipedia: firewall)

"When a Stranger Calls" (2006)

The selective process of (120347) 2004 SB60 [Salacia] works like a computing firewall: not allowing anything that does not match with certain pre-established rules, like preventing access without T-shirt, or with sports clothing and footwear.

In the year 2004 was founded Facebook, a social network whose access to certain areas depends on how is selected the privacy policy: friends, friends of friends; or any person.

Classical Kuiper belt objects are the transpersonal or spiritual dimension of Saturn. As (120347) 2004 SB60 [Salacia], Saturn also imposes limits, but usually in a physical or material way.
