In March of this comet C/2011 L4, and in November and the comet C/2012 S1 may well achieve visibility at which they can be addressed to the naked eye. In June 2011, the telescope with Pan-STARRS, located near the summit of Haleakala on Maui (Hawaii, USA), was discovered comet C/2011 L4. By March 5, 2013 the distance between it and the Earth and reaches 1.09. is, from this point until the perihelion (March 10), its brightness is very significant: most likely in the near-1m (average between Canopus and Sirius). For the second comet discovered on September 21 last year, amateur astronomers Read more [...]
Ukrainians do not see a unique phenomenon because of the fog. Today the moon will turn red. Twenty-eighth of November, our planet would be between svoimsputnikom and Sun. In the Kiev Observatory on this open dome where dusts giant telescope, reports TSN.Head of the department observatory KNU Kleschonok Valery Shevchenko said:"It starts at 14.13 Kyiv time. During this time, the moon is below the horizon, and we do not see. Weather can not run because they would fog and clouds."Category: Space Read more [...]
Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) was discovered by Russian amateur astronomer Artyom Novichonok from Petrozavodsk and his counterpart from Belarus Vitaly Neva in September 2012.Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), which is expected by astronomers may be the brightest comet of the decade, gradually approaches the Sun and has "grown a" tail, show pictures taken by the Italian astronomer Ligustri Rolando (Rolando Ligustri), member of the project iTelescope.
In the images of the comet, which is still in the vicinity of Jupiter's orbit, see a small tail, but as you get closer to the sun it will become brighter Read more [...]
The number of places where they can hide from the glance of the elusive dark matter particles, is rapidly decreasing, and the answer to a long-standing mystery of the space can be given within the next few years, researchers say.Dark matter is an elusive substance, the existence of which scientists have not yet managed to record directly. It is almost completely invisible and does not interact with normal matter, except for the weak mass interactions. However, astronomers believe that it is about a quarter of our universe, and that it exceeds the amount of normal matter (galaxies, stars and planets).Last Read more [...]
Scientists working with the spacecraft "Cassini", has found a second degree, like the hero of the popular video game of the eighties. The first thing they saw on Mimas in 2010. Now it is the turn of another of Saturn - Tethys. Gingerbread man with his mouth open manifested by thermal data from a composite infrared spectrometer: the warmer areas add up to a well-known figure.
- It turns out that the processes leading to the creation of pakmanov more common than we thought - said lead study author Carly Houett from Oxford University (UK) and the Southwest Research Institute (USA). - Read more [...]
The nebula, located about 1300 light years from Earth, is about 33 light-years across. At least that was until recently the consensus of the scientific community on this subject. Now it seems that things will change.One of the most striking phenomena in the night sky - Orion Nebula - has long been studied and it would seem, should be known to astronomers and down. That it is often seen as "exemplary" district of birth of new stars, a kind of gold standard diffuse nebula. It is on its findings "standard" ratio for the distribution of dwarf stars and brown dwarfs, their comparative Read more [...]
Even the existence of the quantum foam is not experimentally verified, and the attempt to implement such a check on the accelerator just not possible with the current level of technology. Nevertheless, something can be done.Famous Israeli physicist Jacob Bekenstein (Jacob D. Bekenstein) from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, published a paper in which he outlined a simple scheme of "desktop" of the experiment that can prove or disprove the existence of the quantum foam.Glass, the way the photon (points) emitter E; second lens (the glass) sends a photon to a detector of single photons.

Scientists can not understand why this is, the lunar dust to be tens of meters to cover the surface of the satellite, making it just a few inches. They also do not understand why all of this dust, which appeared after the bombing of active surface of our natural satellite, meteorites, which took place billions of years ago, is still re stuck. Maybe the Moon younger than we previously thought?In addition, the scientists say that the Earth is often observed effects that can not be explained by anything other than the suspension of dust in the air above the surface of the moon. That's just Read more [...]
The lunar eclipse of November 28, 2012 - penumbral lunar eclipse. Moon in Taurus. Moonrise - 16:03. Moon Set - 8:08. Penumbral lunar eclipse - around the shadow cone of the Earth there is a region of space in which the Earth is only partially obscures the Sun (penumbra). If the Moon is the penumbra region, but not in the shadow penumbral eclipse occurs. When it decreases the brightness of the moon, but only slightly, the decrease is almost imperceptible to the naked eye and recorded only devices. Only when the Moon passes near the penumbral eclipse cone full shade, under a clear sky, you can Read more [...]
The third of December at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco, NASA scientists plan to announce that on Mars found traces of organic matter. This was stated by one of the members of the mission, warning, however, that all of the studies have not been completed, the final position of NASA is not formed. Recall sensation from Mars waiting after earlier in the week supervisor mission rover geologist John Grottsinger slip the press that the rover «Curiosity» stumbled on a discovery of such magnitude that it gets into the history books. In this case, it was found that the mobile Read more [...]
Recently, representatives from NASA on their plans to create a permanent space on the base, which will be located at a distance of 60,000 kilometers from the side of the moon, in the so-called Lagrange point L2 (Earth-Moon L2, EML-2). The sum of the gravitational forces of the Earth and the Moon, acting on a spacecraft or station located at EML-2 will be constantly at this point, not wasting a single drop of scarce fuel. A permanent position for the future space outpost makes it a very convenient starting point for missions to Mars, the asteroids, and for lunar exploration missions.

Astronomers have clarified the nature of the unusual bright spot at the south pole of Neptune - they were able to establish that the spot is a giant storm. White spot at the south pole of Neptune was discovered during approach to the planet, "Voyager 2" in August 1989. Even then, many experts have suggested that the spot is a methane clouds, covered in huge (thousands of kilometers in diameter) storm. In a new study, the researchers built a computer model of the spot, using collected telescope "Keck" data and information on the storms on Saturn, received "Cassini". Read more [...]
Mars is one of the most obvious candidates for the creation of a future human colony. But living in a sealed insulated cocoons and move in space suits, no one wants.How can increase the temperature on Mars? How to make the living conditions and human life on the red planet are perfect? Experts offer warm atmosphere with chlorofluorocarbons. These gases are present in aerosol cans, and are designed to create the necessary pressure there.Experts offer to spray large quantities of gas in the Martian atmosphere, in order to cause it kind of greenhouse effect. When this is done, then on Mars Read more [...]
Jubilee, X Conference on Remote Sensing (RS), organized by the Institute of Space Research, held in the capital of the Academy of Sciences. After years of euphoria, a breakthrough in space more often ask ourselves - and for what it was, what is the impact? On one of the very solid "gatherings" of two dozen executives surveyed enterprises, research institutes, only two industries could texturally, with examples to prove the correspondent "Vecherki", that their teams bring real help to the people, the taxpayers - alloys, technology, medicine, communications, defense potential Read more [...]
Although the core of the "super-Earths" due to excessive pressure is not able to operate the magnetic dynamo, like Earth's magnetic field are still possible: it turns out, magnesium oxide, a hard ground conditions, in their robes must be liquid.Many astronomers believe most of the "super-Earths" lifeless, because they do not have the most important components of the magnetic dynamo, which generates a magnetic field (which protects, for example, the Earth). The reason, presumably, is too much pressure in the core, for it excludes the hydrodynamic behavior, as well as effective Read more [...]
