Scientists from the Institute of Astronomy. Max Planck managed to find space in an unusual "population" of tiny, young galaxies that are actively forming stars. The discovery was made thanks to the Hubble telescope, allowed to return to 9 billion years ago.Galaxies churn out stars at a rate, where in ten million years to increase the number of stars in a variety of times. By comparison to the same number of stars, the Milky Way took a thousand times longer.Note that the dwarf galaxy about a hundred times smaller than the Milky Way. Their star formation rates are extremely high, even Read more [...]
It appears, on the border of the solar system and deep space there is a kind of customs. Where the magnetic field lines generated by the sun and the presence in the solar wind undergo reconnection with the field lines of the magnetic field of the interstellar medium. This became known as information received from the probe Voyager 1, which so far they can not leave the solar system. Now a veteran Space Research, launched in 1977, the American unit Voyager 1, is close to the edge of the heliosphere, the area of the solar space in which the solar wind plasma is moving relative to the sun at Read more [...]
Recent observations give reason to assume that the supernova remnant W49B may be the youngest black hole in the Milky Way known to date. This was in an article published in The Astrological Journal, says a team of astronomers led by NASA representative Laura Lopez (Laura A. Lopez), passes Lenta.ru.Supernova remnant W49B is 26 thousand light-years from Earth. Its diameter is about 60 light-years. W49B is different mainly spherical supernova remnants its barrel-shaped. According to scientists, this unusual shape is because of the explosion of a supernova rotating flows of matter in W49B erupted Read more [...]
In recent years, due to global warming, which could lead to flooding in many regions of the earth, the inhabitants of the planet are increasingly asking about the colonization of other celestial bodies.
Perhaps Professor Hugh Jones of the University of Hertfordshire, and his colleagues have found a potentially habitable planet near Earth closest to the single sun-like star Tau Ceti. Star surrounded by five planets, one of which might be inhabited, since it may be in the water, according to "Bi-BBC News."
The mass of these planets in the two to six times the mass of Earth. The time Read more [...]
Moon and Jupiter will converge on a celestial show in the sky - December 25, 2012. There is a telescope?

Distance to our satellite will be 406,000 km, the angular size of the moon - 29.4?.Holders of binoculars and telescopes will be able to see the planet Jupiter, the bright yellow glow of the planet, up to 4 weak stars, arranged as if in a straight line passing through the center of the disk of the planet. This is the largest and brightest Read more [...]
According to some estimates, an asteroid that will fly close to Earth on February 15, can cost about $ 200 billion
45-meter asteroid 2012 DA14 approach Earth at a distance of 27 thousand kilometers on Friday, February 15. It is an exceptional event, because such objects "flying" at a distance from Earth is very rare.
The American company, which plans to do mining of asteroids, assessed the object as follows: extraction of water for $ 65 billion, metal - $ 130 billion
They emphasize that the estimates are relative, since the end of 2012 is not known composition DA14, and assessment of Read more [...]
22/12/2012 A new study by scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, shows that clay minerals, rocks, which are usually formed when the surface of the planet for a long time there is water, cover much more extensive area of the surface of Mars than previously thought. A research team led by Associate Professor James Ray said that the clay was still in the rock samples studied Mars rover Opportunity, when he landed in Eagle Crater in 2004, then in the study of soil samples rover found only acidic sulfates, and since then Rover has managed to drive 35.4 kilometers toward Endeavour Read more [...]
22/12/2012 In 2013, we should expect the coming of the two great comets. Great Comet of call, if they are extremely bright and can be seen with the naked eye from Earth even in the daytime. The first great comet is closer to the planet will be S/2001 L4 (PANSTARRS). Astronomers predict that it will appear in March 2013 just above the horizon in the western sky, probably just after sunset. Its brightness, it may be enough to watch it, even in the daytime. The second "guest" is expected to be a comet in 2012 S1 (ISON). Astronomers assure that it can outshine even his glowing moon, and Read more [...]
21 December 2012. The winter solstice. Orion Over the Mayan pyramids. El Castillo, the central mystery of the pyramid of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan peninsula. It is sometimes called the Palace of Kukulkan, the height of 30 meters in height, and the side of the square base - 55 meters. Built before Columbus, somewhere between 9m and 12m centuries AD, is oriented to the cardinal points and it could be used for observations of celestial bodies, what the ancient Maya were great masters. In particular, based on this knowledge, the Maya constructed their own calendar.

Winter. The sun's rays glide over the surface of the planet, barely touching the northern part, though it approached the Earth to the sun is the closest. In polar regions, the 67 parallel, the sun is not visible at all - there, in the Arctic - the polar night, and the light is not there.
This happens every year due to the inclination of the Earth's axis relative to the sun. Today at 11:12 World ckoordinirovannogo time (15:12 MSK) angle peaked - 23 ° 26 '. Solstice occurred. Astronomers say that this event is difficult to observe. But it just happens, and we just feel.Important Read more [...]
Computer model of a giant crater on the asteroid Vesta Reyasilviya pointed out that this celestial body has a surprisingly thick crust with a thickness of up to 100 kilometers, from the relatively light minerals, say astronomers in a paper published in the journal Nature.Asteroid Vesta long been considered the most likely candidate for the "germ" of the planet, which stopped in its development in the early days of the solar system. These assumptions were confirmed by the probe Dawn, who has studied the asteroid for several months in 2011 and 2012. In particular, NASA has found traces Read more [...]
Six high-speed stars, which are carried at a speed of 2.5 million miles per hour through space, were, most likely, pushed huge black hole located at the center of our galaxy, astronomers suggest. These celestial bodies are the first ultra star known scholar with the masses, who are close to the mass of our Sun.
When the "wayward" double star (a system consisting of two stars gravitationally bound) falls into the black hole, it may happen that only one of the stars of the system will be absorbed by the black hole. The second component of the solar system with the hole is pushed towards Read more [...]

12/20/2012German astronomers have discovered a huge cloud of space in the constellation of Orion, which contains 200 times more oil than there is water on Earth.
According to The Huffington Post, Horse Head Nebula, which is located at a distance from the Earth 1300 light years in the Orion Nebula, contains more than 55 quadrillion barrels. "Black Gold" in space, astronomers have found the Max Planck Institute in Germany, with a telescope of the Institute of Radio Astronomy.
According to scientists, the oil in the nebula was created because of the fragmentation of polycyclic aromatics Read more [...]
The nebula, which is embedded star in the infrared shows a square shape in the pictures of the famous 5-meter Hale Telescope on Palomar Mountain and the no less famous Keck-2 in Hawaii.
Some scholars argue that, during one of his exhalations of matter in space, hot MWC 922 has released two symmetric regular cone, which we see edge-on! This hypothesis is supported by forming cones - "diagonal" space "Red Square." If you look from the end of the cones should be something like the famous necklace of supernova 1987A. Moving on to our logical chain, quite correctly suggest Read more [...]
