NASA says that the asteroid 2012 DA14 will be at a distance of 3.5 Earth radii from the surface of the Earth February 15, 2013.He will fly in geostationary ring satellites located about 35,800 kilometers (21,748 miles) above the equator. The impact energy of the body would make 2.41 megatons of TNT. Fortunately, NASA said the asteroid will not touch the earth.During its closest approach, according to Myers, the asteroid could be located close 14,000 miles from Earth. Small asteroid has a size of about 45 meters in diameter. This is probably not face any satellite. However, the pass near the Read more [...]
As we know from the Gospels, the birth of Christ was preceded by an astronomical phenomenon called the star of Bethlehem. Astronomers and historians still can not figure out what it was - a comet or a supernova explosion. The debate about what shone so brightly in the sky for two thousand years ago, is still going on. Every year before Christmas, new hypotheses.According to American scientists, the star that guides the Magi to the infant Jesus, was a unique astronomical phenomenon: the Sun, Moon, Jupiter and Saturn are lined up in a row in the constellation Aries, which is why there was a Read more [...]
Last American rover named "Kuroziti" continues an active research on Mars, during which reveals a lot of interesting things. Cameras mounted on the rover's "Kuroziti" not rest even during the holidays. They photographed a close-up of the Martian rocky landscapes of Yellowknife Bay, as well as Martian flower, making the way to the surface.
Going to make rover pictures, scientists have made two interesting mosaic photo.
We can see these photos in a little distorted color schemes, so that to understand how the Martian landscape would look like on Earth.
The photo number Read more [...]
Scientists expect that the meteorite "Black Beauty" the size of a fist came to Earth from Mars, will give vital clues to understanding the evolution of the planet.This is a guest of the Red Planet over 2 billion years.
NASA says the meteorite Black Beauty, be able to tell them how Mars has changed from warm and humid place, as it once was before the current cold and dry.
Discovered in the Sahara desert in Morocco in 2011, the meteorite weighs 320 g (11 oz) and contains 10 times more water than other Martian meteorites.The meteorite was found by a Bedouin in the desert, and then sold Read more [...]
Due to the mission "Kepler", scientists have found that our galaxy contains about 100 billion planets.
Astronomical Satellite NASA, designed to search for and study of exoplanets, has helped astronomers to calculate the approximate number of planets in our galaxy. $ CUT $
Observatory "Kepler", equipped with a powerful super-sensitive photometer can simultaneously observe more than 100,000 stars, and will be watching them for 3.5 years. The presence of a planet near the star is determined by periodic changes in the brightness of the latter entailed by transit - the passage Read more [...]
According to scientists, if spending a few months on board the International Space Station in microgravity, you can temporarily increase by around 3%. However, reports Infuture, growth in the world remains the same.Scientists and doctors still do not know the exact mechanism of increasing growth in space, but it is not a hypothesis, but a fact. Indeed all the astronauts on board the ISS are a little higher than they are on Earth. Currently, the phenomenon being studied."The first time we will use an ultrasound to find out why space in microgravity human spine increased by a total of 3%" Read more [...]
We do not (yet) direct evidence that the other planets, their moons, as well as in interstellar space there is life. And yet, there is a very convincing and compelling reasons to believe that in time we will find that life can be, even in our own solar system. Here are seven reasons why scientists believe that life certainly exists somewhere and just waiting for meeting with us. Maybe it will not be green-skinned ladies in flying saucers, but it will still be aliens. 1. Extremophiles on EarthA key question is, can exist and develop life in worlds radically different from Earth. It seems the Read more [...]
The telescope, built on a plateau in the Chilean Andes at an altitude of 5000 meters above sea level, was the first image of the formation of a new planet, absorbing cosmic dust and gas surrounding a distant star.
Astronomers have long predicted that a giant "gaseous" planet similar to Jupiter, was formed by the dust and debris that is formed around a young star. Now they have a first visual evidence to support this phenomenon.
The image shows two gas flow connecting internal and external drives outer material surrounding the star HD 142527, which is located about 450 light-years from Read more [...]
Scientists studied the enormous magnetized geysers, consisting of gamma rays that emanate from the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
Amount of magnetic energy contained in these similar geyser stream corresponding energy released when the total supernova explosion of a million "- said study author Ettore Carretto, an astrophysicist at the research organization in Australia.
"These outflows can help solve the mysteries associated with the magnetic fields of our galaxy, the Milky Way" - added Carretto.
In past studies, scientists have found regions in our galaxy, which was named "Fermi Read more [...]
American engineer and programmer Kevin Gill (Kevin Gill) showed images of Mars as it might have looked like from space in the past, if it was life. The results of the simulation are shown in a blog engineer, summarized their comments on Universe Today.
In the three-dimensional model Jill Mars topography data obtained probe «Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter» (MRO). The spacecraft, which was released into orbit the red planet in 2006, drew a map of the surface elevation with a resolution of 128 pixels per degree.
Jill for making his model of Mars using objective data MRO, with the majority of the Read more [...]
Group dwarf galaxies around the large spiral galaxy Andromeda was found in the galactic disk.
French astronomers discovered a galactic disk around the Andromeda telescope using the Canada-France-Hawaii. and this drive was discovered many dwarf galaxies.
It is still doubtful whether current models of galaxy formation to explain the existence of this vast disk, which hides most of the 27 known dwarf galaxies that live around Andromeda.
Dwarf satellite galaxies are the remnants of material that came together to form a giant galaxy, which they surround. According to astronomers, like the galactic Read more [...]
Let's see what programs and space, as well as sub-orbital launches are planned for 2013.
While in 2011, ended the American space shuttle program, the astronauts still make regular flights to the Russian "Soyuz" to the International Space Station. And they will continue to do so until at least 2020, while the ISS ends its work and is not drowned in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Plus, China plans 2013 manned mission to dock with the ISS. Many other countries, such as South Korea, India, Canada, and a coalition of European countries are also going to run many of their research Read more [...]
NASA already computed all the phases of the moon in 2013 and made the video. Each frame in the video - it's one hour. Please note that this time NASA did not remove the color of the moon, that is, video is no longer black and white, and color. But this is the color for the viewer from Earth, in the approximation to the moon - color enhanced.

The universe likes to deceive us, creating the illusion that virtually all space objects are located at the same distance from Earth.
A good example of this can be a photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, which shows two galaxies: NGC 5011B and NGC 5011C on the starry sky.
Both galaxies are located in the constellation of the Southern Hemisphere sky named Centaur (Centaur). The nature of these galaxies for years puzzling astronomers.
In the picture shown above, the galaxy NGC 5011B is located on the right. Is a spiral galaxy that is part of the galaxy Centaurus cluster at a distance Read more [...]
According to scientists, the annual meteor falls to Earth flurry total weight of approximately 21.3 tons. Moreover, some meteors can weigh over a ton. Each year only a small part of them: typically 10 to 20 pieces. Earth's surface up to 9 percent of the mass of all meteorites. Meanwhile, a fall of meteorites on communities are rare. There are several known facts fall of meteorites on the building and only 2 cases of wounded people. That was in 1954 in the state of Alabama (USA) and in 2004 in the UK. The most common meteorites fall in Antarctica, according to experts, they are scattered Read more [...]
This object is 10 trillion times denser than steel and moving up to 100 times faster than a supersonic jet. This is referred to as the neutron star RX J185635-3754, and is the closest to us. It is located at a distance of 200 light years and is located in the constellation of Southern Crown. Unique discoveries made by Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is that the neutron star has a companion. "She seems to be very hot, not because involve accretion of hydrogen, and the fact that she is still very young and did not have time to cool down," said Frederick M. Walter (State University of Read more [...]
Professor Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario reported that Canadian Radar CMOR with which scientists track the number of meteorites fall shows that the flow of the Quadrantids has significantly increased and is increasing. The photo above, you can see the northern celestial sphere of the Earth which displays the echo from falling meteors. "Last updated radar received an hour ago (based on data from the last 24 hours) and it shows that the Quadrantids have already exceeded the expected density of the flow," Brown said. "I expect that in the next day or two we will Read more [...]
