(336756) 2010 NV1, setting limits to adapt to changes

At the end of the year 2010 took place a unusual strong storm at the planet Saturn. In this kind of furious storms the whirlwind restructures the atmosphere and confines the materials.

(336756) 2010 NV1 combines the spiritual intelligence of the objects in the inner Oort Cloud with the ability of Saturn to set limits to adapt to changes in the situation, as the national budget cut in the European countries to face the world-wide financial crisis, like in the movies "The Company Men" (2010) and "Partir" (2009).

(60558) Echeclus, reunions

(60558) Echeclus is a centaur discovered in March of 2000 and rediscovered in the year 2002 (2000 EC98 = 2002 GJ27). It has a perihelion 5.9 AU and an aphelion 15.7 AU. Its orbit is between Jupiter and Saturn-Uranus. It has a diameter of about 85 km. In late December 2005 a cometary coma was detected. There is a prediscovery image back to September of 1979.


At the beginning of the movie "Superman" (1978), Lois Lane is a small girl that is travelling in a train with her parents and sees through the window the young Clark Kent (her future work companion at the Daily Planet in Metropolis) running faster than the train. Similar reunions happen in the movies "Star Trek" (1979), "Tess" (1979), "Gangs of New York" (2002), "The Bourne Identity" (2002), "Dragonfly" (2002) and "Serendipity" (2001).

"The origin of his name is a bit unclear, but it may have come from the Greek word that translates as 'glutinous'...which means sticky, or glue-like." (Zane B. Stein)

(60558) Echeclus is related with reunions, like the repeated overtakes back and forward between the rivals of the race of snowboard in the video game "SSX" (PS2, 2000).

When (60558) Echeclus is activated, there are time connections between past, present and future. Usually something of the past has an imposing influence in the present, and something of the present can have an imposing influence in the future, and vice versa, like in the movies "The Kid" (2000), "Family Man" (2000), "Pay it Forward" (2000), "Frequency" (2000), "The Lake House" (2006, remake of "Il Mare" South Korean film of 2000), "Déjà vu" (2006), "Tomb Raider: Legend" (PS2, 2006).

Learning to switch time perspectives allows us to shift our attention easily between the past, present and future, and consciously adapt our mindset to any given situation.

Salacia, Roman mythology for (120347) 2004 SB60

In February of 2011, (120347) 2004 SB60 was officially named (120347) Salacia.

Facebook, a social network based on the adding of other users as friends by sending a request, was launched in early 2004 in some universities of USA. In 2006 opened to everyone aged 13 and over. And, in later 2010, was released the movie "The Social Network". 

Roman mythology

Salacia was a goddess of the sea, salt water and springs of highly mineralized waters. She was the personification of the calm and sunlit aspect of the sea. Derived from Latin sal meaning "salt", the name Salacia denotes the wide, open sea, and is sometimes literally translated to mean sensational.

The god Neptune wanted to marry Salacia, but she was in great awe of her distinguished suitor, and with grace and celerity, she managed to glide out of his sight, and hid from him in the Atlantic Ocean. The grieving Neptune sent a dolphin to look for her and persuade the fair nymph to come back and share his throne. Salacia agreed to marry Neptune and the King of the Deep was so overjoyed at these good tidings that the dolphin was awarded a place in the heavens, where he now forms a well known constellation Delphinus.
