Launch a satellite into space in 30 years will be the unrealistic

The existence of space as the industry could be in danger of extinction in thirty years. To launch a payload will be the goal malodostizhimoy. This unexpected prediction voiced head of the department of space astrometry of the Institute of Astronomy at the Congress Lydia Rykhlova astronomers at the observatory Kourovka UFU. "Every month the International Space Station have to make several maneuvers care to avoid a collision with space debris," - said Lydia Rykhlova our agency. According to the scientist, at the moment, Russian astronomers because of the small number of radars and Read more [...]

Traces of the magnetic field of galactic dimensions

Two years ago, scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (USA) announced the discovery of two giant twin lobes formed by gamma radiation, to retire on 50 thousand light-years above and below the plane of the Milky Way. It seemed that these bubbles came from the field of the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A * at the galactic core. There is even a theory that the "gamma-petals" are generated by emission from the vicinity of SMCHD Sagittarius A *. The alternative hypothesis, put forward at the same time, it is assumed that the reason for their occurrence, by contrast, Read more [...]

In Martian dust storms born lightning

Scientists have simulated the inner workings of lightning "jet dust storms" on Mars, which is a hundred times faster than regular storms and are bombarded with dust high into the atmosphere of the Red Planet.Mars - very dry and dusty place. Storms sometimes cover the entire planet, and orbiters see as persistent dust layers reach great heights (30 º 50 km above the surface). The mechanism of the latter phenomenon is unclear.High resolution model based on data from the instrument OMEGA, which is located on the satellite Mars Express, helped figure out how thick spherical pocket dust Read more [...]

Comet rain could bring life in the vicinity of Jupiter

Disintegrated into dust, asteroids and comets are scattered around the material, rich in carbon compounds. Perhaps some of it has settled on the satellites of the gas giant.Disintegrating comet dust could to place on the moons of Jupiter the seeds of life. Including in Europe, under the icy shell of which, hopefully, is hidden ocean.Jupiter's moons are divided into two types: large spherical satellites and less lumpy body with eccentric orbits. Chemical analysis of the past suggests that they are made from a material of asteroids and comets. In other words, they most likely are rich carbon Read more [...]

Probe captures seasonal changes on Mars

NASA astronomers by machine Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter were able to observe Seasonal changes in the North Pole of Mars. These changes are caused by the formation of ice on the Martian surface of CO2 and its subsequent melting under the sun.Since the melting of ice in the spring begins at the bottom of the ice layer, where the transparent ice in contact with the dark Martian soil, high pressure gas from time to time thrown up, thus creating intricate patterns on the surface of the Red Planet. Gas drags sand that is carried by the wind, resulting in the formation of ice, dark stripes. In summer Read more [...]

Life on Mars: in the bowels of the planet found minerals

The minerals in the Martian subsoil to a depth of more than five kilometers have become one of the most serious evidence that the Red Planet could support life. This follows from a study published in Nature Geoscience in January 2013. Up to half of all life on Earth consists of simple organisms hiding in the rugged rocks below the surface. Recently, planetary scientists have suggested that the same may be true for Mars. Now this conjecture confirmed by the results of new studies, which show that the "ingredients" for life were present in the Martian subsurface strata for most of the Read more [...]

New star-pulsar emits just two types of radiation

Scientists have discovered a strange star, may surprisingly spontaneously switch between two different types of emissions: hard X-ray emission and an intense emission of radio waves in space. Although by themselves these two radiation is not unusual for the stars and the universe is a set of objects that are in the rotation and emit X-rays and radio waves, have not opened a single object that is to throw out the two different radiation immediately.According to experts, the closest example of the similarity of the new object is a star, which at one stage of its evolution, emit X-rays, and the other Read more [...]

Voyager 1: Out of the solar plasma

At the end of August 2012 on the spacecraft "Voyager 1" recorded a sharp increase in the intensity of galactic cosmic rays. Just a little more, and he will escape into space, but it's a little bit does not end there ...From the point of entry into the universe Earth space has long since ceased to be exotic, having acquired, among other things, and this attribute developed territory, as a fair amount of debris. And actively explore the more remote areas: spacecraft populated neighborhood of the Lagrange points and the orbit of the Earth, our probes are flying around the five (counting Read more [...]

American satellites zombie: open circuit operation

Defense science agency DARPA has submitted a video that shows how an advanced system Phoenix, quickening spent satellites. As planned by experts DARPA, robots will one day orbital re-use various parts of dead satellites, such as antennas and transmitters. This makes sense from an economic point of view: satellite launch costs tens of millions of dollars, but in 5-10 years it becomes a waste. To date, of the 1,300 large space objects in Earth orbit only 500 - is operational satellites. In the short space of useful sites and designs that can be reused. In the video, released DARPA, shows Read more [...]

Extrasolar planet moves around its star in the opposite direction

Scientists have tried to figure out why one of the planetary systems of the planet moves in the opposite direction of its orbit its star. Recently, researchers have studied quite bizarre planetary system in which the exoplanet HAT-P-7b is moving in the opposite direction of its orbit around its star. The central star of this planetary system is located at a distance of 1.040 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.Planet HAT-P-7 was found March 6, 2008.

Astronomy and space

The claim that astronomers can not touch the objects they studied, is not always fair. At least in the solar system's something we can not only take pictures in detail, but also "touch" (at least by machines). It is not surprising, therefore, that its device is known to us pretty well. Hardly anyone would dispute the fact that the earth revolves around the sun, and that with it revolves around the sun is a great variety of different bodies. We understand the forces which move under the influence of these bodies, and we can predict their movement. Actually, it is the study of Read more [...]

January 21 lands were powerful radio emissions from Jupiter

The planet Jupiter is a powerful source of short bursts of radio signals. They come from the polar magnetosphere giant planet when Jupiter sweep past Earth. January 21, when Jupiter and Moon were met in the sky - the radio series of laser beams hit Jupiter Earth. Amateur astronomer Thomas Ashcraft recorded the sounds coming from the speaker of his short-wave radio telescope in New Mexico. "On Sunday, Jupiter made a few minutes of strong radio waves. When I was out of my observatory, looking at Jupiter, I heard the sound wave on my radio speakers, and realized that my own body, at that Read more [...]
