American astronomers who are searching for life in the solar system, believe that Europe, one of the moons of Jupiter, the surface of the ocean where there is a much more attractive target for new expeditions than desert Mars, now riveted the attention of the U.S. government.Europe has become a tempting target for the search of life on it, because it has a fairly thin crust of ice, which is hidden under the ocean. Also in Europe contains chemicals-oxidants, say planetary scientists.At the request of NASA has been recently revised new mission to Europe in order to reduce the project cost, and the Read more [...]
01/21/2013 Scientists working with the data device "Cassini", found that wind erosion processes lead to the rapid smoothing of the craters on Saturn's moon Titan. The paper was published in the journal Icarus, and its website a summary of results of the American space agency.
The discovery was made by comparing the ratio of the diameter and depth of craters on Titan and Jupiter's moon Ganymede. In the case of Ganymede depth data were obtained using stereofotografii held device "Galileo." Information about the craters on Titan were obtained using radiosonde conducted Read more [...]
01/21/2013 The European Space Agency (ESA) has published pictures taken research probe "Mars Express". The Martian region Reull Vallis found impressive size bed of the river. Its length - more than 1500 km, the width of the river was up to 7 km and depth - 300 m River had numerous tributaries and fairly strong current, judging by the sharp line of the channel.
Channel Reull Vallis (he was named in the same way as the whole area), as the researchers suggest, could be produced in the life of the planet gesperiansky period ended 3,5-1,8 billion years ago. In those days, there was a real Read more [...]
7 years ago, 14 January 2005 lander Huygens began its decline in the atmosphere of Titan, the largest satellite in the solar system. Computer simulation is based on the true picture of Huygens in several directions.
NASA provided new evidence for the existence of a damp underground environment on Mars, which further complicates the picture of the early evolution of the Red Planet.Layered rocks on the crater floor of McLaughlin (image HiRISE / NASA / JPL-Caltech / Univ. Of Arizona).
Researchers analyzing data spectrometer spacecraft Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, have come to some interesting conclusions. At the bottom of the crater McLaughlin (diameter - 92 km, depth - 2.2 km) are seen flat layered rocks containing carbonate and clay minerals that form in the presence of water.
At the same time in the vicinity Read more [...]
Deep craters on the surface Mars
contain traces of clay, which are formed only in the presence of ground water. This suggests that the Red Planet could be liquid water, and thus life.It is believed that the surface of Mars in ancient times, in Noah's age (3.8 - 3.5 billion years ago), there were oceans and rivers of liquid water. Weight and dimensions of the Red Planet are too small to hold the large and dense atmosphere, resulting in water gradually disappeared.Probe MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) found in the second half of the 2000s. many deposits of clay, which is hidden inside a Read more [...]
Scientists have discovered that the Earth is bombarded with high energy electrons from the located close to the solar system of the mysterious object, possibly made up of dark matter. This is stated in an article published in the journal Nature by a research team from China, Germany, the U.S., as well as from the Russian Research Institute of Nuclear Physics, Moscow State University. "This is a great discovery. First, we found a discrete source of cosmic rays emitted from obschegalakticheskogo background" - says one of the study's authors, John Vefel (John Wefel) from the University Read more [...]
Spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (NASA) has made the most detailed to date photographed two giant holes in the surface of the moon. These holes appear as black holes, going deep into the satellite, and are of special scientific interest.
Scientists believe that the dark gaps are the result of the destruction of underground lava tubes. As a result, any impact may meteorite impact, some rocks fell into the depths, forming a rather smooth deep dip. In fact it is a kind of cave with the collapse ceiling, which offers researchers a deeper, inaccessible in normal rock layers.
One of these holes Read more [...]
It is believed that at the center of the Milky Way lies a giant black hole, but nobody ever saw her. Now, astronomers were able to predict, might look like a black hole in the first photographs obtained by technology that will be available very soon.
The researchers found that the picture of a black hole, or, to be more accurate, the border around the crescent will form, not shapeless, as they represent.
Scientists say that by modeling these photos, they are preparing for interpreting images that will soon be obtained using telescopes that are currently under construction.

Of "Mars Express" to explore yet another river on Mars, the name of which Reull Vallis. Research probe "Mars Express", a European Space Agency (ESA), at the end of last year, took a picture of Mars region called Reull Vallis with its high-resolution stereo camera. This rekoobraznaya structure. The photos show the mouth of a dry river. Scientists suggest that in the past there was a river of liquid water, which had a fairly strong current. Hence a clear track in the photo. Under different conditions, such a trace could not be formed.
According to scientists who study Read more [...]
On the planet Titan, Saturn's largest moon spontaneously disappear deepening. It is able to detect with interplanetary probe "Cassini". Scientists believe that the unusual phenomenon is important for understanding the history of Titan.
The discovery was made when comparing the ratio of the diameter and depth of craters on Titan and Jupiter's moon, Ganymede.
Most of the pits on Titan contained an unusual sand from bicarbonate. On the surface of the moon craters were as empty and filled up to the top.
Scientists have linked the process of filling in the craters and the disappearance Read more [...]
Comet "IONS", is now near the orbit of Jupiter, or at a distance more than 600 million km from Earth. But in late 2013, it will only 1.2 million km from the Sun's surface. If the comet survives after meeting with the sun, it will shine as bright as the moon with a huge fiery tail. Astronomers say that it will be sensational and startling sight to the naked eye from Earth's surface.

In large galaxies growth of massive black holes at the center is proportional to the square of the increase in mass of the galaxy, say Australian astronomers. For years, it was commonly believed that supermassive black holes (SMCHD) in the centers of galaxies gained its colossal mass, which sometimes up to 20 billion solar, gradually, step by step, absorbing their surrounding matter. But with the growth of the mass of the nuclei and the "weight gain" of the galaxy and tuchneli SMCHD. Therefore, knowing the mass of the galaxy, astronomers have believed it possible to shortchange its Read more [...]
Asteroid 2012 DA14, measuring about 40 meters and weighing 130,000 tons, will fly past Earth on Feb. 15 at a speed of 6.3 kilometers per sekuundu less than a 32,000 miles. If he would hit us, the energy of the explosion will be equal to 2.5 megatons.
But scientists believe that the asteroid will not hit our planet, not only in 2013, but ever. Despite the lack of sensational scenario, it is very valuable to astronomers. The thing is that such a close flyby will learn more about these celestial bodies.
2012 DA14 was first discovered Feb. 22, 2012 Observatory "La Sagra" which Read more [...]
In space, full of radiation. Escape from it is impossible. Imagine that you are standing in the middle of a sand storm, and all around you constantly circling vortex of pebbles that hurt your skin. Would look like the cosmic radiation. But the problem is that, in contrast to the pebbles and pieces of land ionizing radiation does not bounce off human flesh. It passes through it, like a cannon ball penetrate the building. And this radiation causes considerable damage.Last week, researchers from the Medical Center at the University of Rochester, published research showing that long-term effects Read more [...]
Have any of you focus on the movement of approximation is a very bright star in the pictures of the sun? Since January became apparent that this glowing, very bright object is getting closer to the Sun and is growing in size every day is getting closer and closer.What could it be? what are your thoughts? maybe someone more knowledgeable? just this impression is either no one notices or all know what it is and do not care and I do not know one! For those who have spread the image does not display a link to the source

Astronomers from the European Southern Observatory (European Southern Observatory) witnessed the amazing beauty of the phenomenon - the birth of a new star - and even managed to capture it. This observation is not only aesthetic value. The important thing is that it will allow scientists to be one step closer to unraveling the mystery of our star, the Sun, and the Earth. In view of the international team of researchers working at the Observatory in the Chilean La Seelye, horrible cloud Lupus 3, located 600 light-years from Earth in the constellation Scorpius. A powerful two-meter telescope Read more [...]
In the constellation of Cygnus, according to the telescope "Subaru", studied the exoplanet system HAT-P-7. It was found among the traveling together in the same direction of the planets in their orbits one feature - it rotates in the opposite direction. The orbit of a planet called retrograde. How, then, could emerge as a "wrong" planet?Considered system HAT-P-7 was very successful - scientists were able to formulate an explanation, as may appear in the body of a planetary system with a retrograde orbit.The instrument by which the study - ground-based optical telescope "Subaru" Read more [...]
Suppose this is not the actual image, and the model with its share of mistakes, but still very nice!
Finnish photographer Jukka-Pekka Metsyavaynio not be offended if we call him a magician. Look at this amazing 3D-animation star cluster Melotte 15 in the Heart Nebula (IC 1805)!
He'd dabbled in stereo pairs and anaglyphs, but it's something really incredible!
