July 16th. / ITAR-TASS /. The upper layer of the atmosphere of our planet recently greatly shrunk and scientists can not yet find the explanation for this phenomenon.
It is the most external layer of the atmosphere called the thermosphere and is located in the interval of heights from 90 km to 600 km above the Earth's surface. He is now recovering.
Such events are not something very rare, but the extent of the latter phenomenon is literally shocked scientists. «This is the biggest contraction of at least the last 43 years», — said the head of research Read more [...]
August 13, 2013. On the edge of earth's atmosphere, where the dark sky line meteors and gentle light shining noctilucent clouds, sometimes you can see the odd shape of lightning. Scientists say that the sprites is as beautiful as it is mysterious.
Jason Örns (Jason Ahrns), graduate of the University of Alaska, made a photo of bright red sprite over Oklahoma city on August 6. A specialist in the study of the Aurora that day was onboard the U.S. National center for atmospheric research, carrying out regular flight. \"During the flight we had not seen the sprites, but found them later on the records Read more [...]
The top layer of the Earth's atmosphere recently underwent a sudden large reduction. This was reported in the research center of NASA. The layer of gas called the thermosphere currently being restored again. This type of collapse is not uncommon, but its magnitude is shocked scientists.
\"This is the biggest contraction of the thermosphere, at least for the last 43 years,\" said the study's lead author John Emmert from the Naval Research Lab, USA, published the research results in the journal \"Geophysical Research Letters\". \"This is a record of the space age,\" said the scientist.
The collapse Read more [...]
August 15, 2013. The atmosphere of the planet heats up, and it happens regardless of human activity or emissions of carbon dioxide. This is indicated by the results of a study published by the American, Spanish and German scientists. According to experts, the heat, like Moscow 2010, will tear the planet more often.
In an article published in the journal Environmental Research Letters a group of authors from the universities of Pittsburgh, Madrid and Potsdam, described two scenarios. According to optimistic forecasts, the number of extreme weather events, including the so-called heat waves will Read more [...]
Modern technologies, which should prevent a further increase in the level of the oceans due to rising temperatures on the planet, ineffective in the long term
To such conclusion scientists using computer models reviewed five of these methods. The results of the work of specialists published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Lenta.ru reports with reference to the Bi-Bi-si.
One of the consequences of continued growth temperature on Earth is rising ocean levels, which can lead to flooding of a significant part of the populated areas. Recently, ecologists have Read more [...]
August 29, 2013. Scientists engaged in the study of the process of global warming, said that, despite the increase in the share of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, over the last 15 years, the average temperature of the planet was almost unchanged. This fact suggests the presence of a deterrent, ensuring stabilization of the temperature.
It was found that such a break is provided by abnormally low temperatures in the tropical Pacific ocean. Scientists at the SCRIPPS Institute of Oceanography in California Yu Kosaka and Xie SanPiN in an article published in the journal Read more [...]
Severe natural disasters that occurred in recent months, such as unusual heat in Russia, floods in Pakistan, the melting of ice in Greenland has sparked renewed debate about the role of climate warming and that these events are only the forerunners of waiting for us dystopian future.
Scientists emphasize that there are no data that prove a direct link to these natural disasters with specific changes in the Earth's climate due to human activities, but warn that the recent crises perfectly fit the predictions of the researchers predicted greater frequency and intensity of climatic Read more [...]
September 13, 2013. Operation Fierstein\" (Firestation), whose purpose is the study of phenomena occurring during storms in the upper atmosphere, will begin in the coming days.
In recent decades, scientists have noticed a strange natural phenomena occurring at the top of the storm clouds. During the flashes of lightning that occur in the lower layers of the atmosphere, storm peaks occur the so-called red sprites (short red flash), elves (huge laboutain cones) and blue jets (tube-blue cones).In addition, analysis of the data detectors orbital observatories, which were powered by these discharges, Read more [...]
The ISS today, spent several anxious hours. From the Earth came the signal that the station is approaching the chip space debris. The NASA experts and specialists of the Russian MCC felt that it threatens the security of the orbital complex. For reference, dangerous in such situations, consider the approximation in which the probability of collision is 0.001%. To avoid waste, it took 3 minutes to start the engines, to increase the speed of the station and to raise its orbit at 1.5 km above. Which, as it turns out was not superfluous: chip flew a distance of only 50 meters from the ISS.
And one Read more [...]

Mankind, it seems, will not rest until he passes the infamous date on which the Mayan allegedly prescribed the end of the world
FROM THE FIFTH TO THE SIXTH SUN
Many educators (and KP) are already tired to explain: the Mayans never predicted the end of the world in your calendar. And the calendar itself is not terminated on 21 December 2012, as some people think. This day will end just another Great cycle of 5126 years. Or the Fifth Sun, terminology and beliefs of the ancient Indians. And will start Sixth Sun.
No, don't believe people. Waiting for the specified time some cataclysm that will Read more [...]
A few weeks after the emergence of the Internet the hypothesis that the growth of neighboring stars can lead to the appearance of a second sun in the sky — the version that was later debunked — two suns were recorded on camera yesterday in China. Two of the solar disk appeared side by side, one slightly above the other, according to Life#39;s Little Mysteries.
«What happens? — asks Jim Kaler, an astronomer from the University of Illinois, author of several scientific publications. Double image of the sun — this is probably the effect of optical Read more [...]
