Atmospheric chemistry increasingly intrudes into our lives, so that the cause including irresponsible behavior. Man-made dust particles produce hydroxyl radicals, which cause the formation of sulfuric acid, and the nucleation of aerosols in the Earth's atmosphere.Experts from the Institute of Catalysis and Environment (France) found that active radicals generated on the surface of dust particles trigger the formation of new aerosol particles in the atmosphere. In the future, these aerosols play a key role in climate change, determine the "quality" of the air we inhale, and directly Read more [...]
"This is one of the most beautiful phenomena in the atmosphere. Especially in cities, where many lights of different colors.

Not only was the man to fly in space, now he definitely need to know where to draw the line between the most space and Earth's atmosphere. A certain part of the scientific community believes that the boundary is at an altitude of 100 kilometers. After all, that distance may be raised winged vehicles. NASA believes that space begins after 122 kilometers. The fact that it is at that point the spacecraft NASA when they return to the ground, turn off the inboard motors and move to aerodynamic flight control, writes sunhome.ru But scientists from Canada, such data was not satisfied. The research Read more [...]
