Unusual photo was transmitted to Earth Cassini spacecraft after NASA intentionally positioned it to capture most of the sunlight. The sun hid behind Saturn, its rings highlight the light that gave scientists a rare opportunity to study the rings on clearance. Earth in this image is not visible, it is the same place where the Sun. But we see two small moon of Saturn - Enceladus (closer to the rings) and Tethys (away from them). The shadow of the giant planet falls to the ring in the center of the image. Cassini was under the ring plane, the angle was 19 degrees. Snapshot is a mosaic of individual Read more [...]
Video appeared on YouTube in which the authors argue that the alleged Jupiter and Saturn changed slope (as seen in the rings and moons location) with respect to the plane of the ecliptic.And also, the day was observed slope, computer online surveillance program have him. However, after 12 hours, the image allegedly "made right." The only possibility to check the validity of this information myself to look through the telescope. When present.The Internet has reference materials - how to observe Jupiter with a telescope. For example, on http://www.realsky.ru/book/59-whatobserve/166-jupiter Read more [...]
Data obtained from the space telescope "Hubble", confirmed that the hottest known exoplanets - WASP-12b really eats her own star, gradually "sucking" the substance of the upper layers of its atmosphere.In February, a team led by Shu-lin Li (Shu-lin Li) from the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics Kavli in Beijing, studying the unusual properties of the binary system WASP-12, came to the conclusion that the star attraction distorts the shape of the planet, and the resulting gravitational tidal waves so heat up the inside, that is around a cloud of matter, which gradually Read more [...]
Object's mass is 20 times the mass of our Sun Spitzer Space Telescope image of a giant star was runner-Zeta Ophiuchi. In the picture, resulting in the infrared, visible shock wave created by a star. According to the assumptions of astronomers, this star was next to his companion, even more massive star. When it exploded, Zeta Ophiuchi was ejected from the system. Object's mass is 20 times the mass of our Sun. And its luminosity is 80,000 times the luminosity of the sun. Star is moving at a speed of 54 thousand miles per hour (24 kilometers per second). In the photo Zeta Ophiuchi Read more [...]
19/12/2012 NASA experts presented a composite image of Saturn's shadow, established on the basis of 60 images of the planet and its rings taken with the cameras of the spacecraft "Cassini". All 60 pictures were taken during one of the day in the visible wavelength range and sredneinfrakrasnom.
Automatic interplanetary station "Cassini" studying Saturn and its moons since June 30, 2004, when she came into the orbit of the planet.
Because Saturn was in the shade during the filming camera "Cassini", and the cameras were aimed at the same time and on the sun, Read more [...]
Carrier rocket "Soyuz-FG" with the spacecraft "Soyuz TMA-07M," carrying the crew of a new mission to the International Space Station (ISS), launched to the ISS with the first ("Gagarin") launch pad at Baikonur. ISS went Roscosmos cosmonaut Roman Romanenko, NASA astronaut Thomas Mashbern and astronaut of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Chris Hadfield. Initially launching a new expedition to the ISS scheduled for December 5, but was postponed due to the fact that had to be moved to the launch last week of the expedition to the ISS in October, as needed to replace Read more [...]

Satellite tracking circumsolar space Stereo 2: A (Ahead) and B (Behind). Venus shows satellite STEREO Ahead, a satellite of the Earth now shows STEREO Behind. Pictures of what is happening in this area seem to put it mildly – strange …
Astronomers have expressed suspicions that the star, which they believed, exploded this year, in fact, staged his own death in order to connect to it by a mysterious companion. So sometimes the universe begins to resemble a bad melodrama.
If in fact this is the case, the wonderful stars in the sky has more. It's about the product of the merger of stars that can change our ideas about what is the chemical composition of our universe.
Luminaries are powered by nuclear fusion, which means the conversion of hydrogen into helium in the cores of stars. When sufficiently massive star ends hydrogen Read more [...]
Astronomers have found as many as five planets, including one potentially habitable, a famous star Tau Ceti, which half a century ago, scientists had to "listen" for the signals of extraterrestrial civilizations, according to an article accepted for publication in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.
Tau star in the constellation of Cetus (HD 10700) is visible in the sky as a star third magnitude. It is located 11.9 light years from Earth and is very similar in their characteristics to our sun. It has the same spectral type (G) and roughly the same age (Tau Ceti - 5.8 billion Read more [...]
A research team from Puerto Rico, has calculated that the megaton impacts on Mars occur every three years. But how did it happen that in decades of research our neighbor was nothing like this seen?Asteroid - one of the worst natural disasters. Therefore, the evaluation of risk of such events - a very important task.
In this case, the drop in the future through the past, but a direct extrapolation is, of course, is impossible, because the size distribution of the craters observed today depends not only on the number of impacts, but also on the rate of disappearance of craters by erosion and tectonic Read more [...]
From 10 to 18 December at the Venus encounter strange anomaly, like a violent eruption or explosion on the very Venus. Emission similar to outbreaks occurring on the Sun, such as a huge "arch" has taken off, and then became involved back into the planet. How to comment on what you see in the video, I do not know. It will be interesting to hear your version of what happened ...
