Orienteering during extreme survival in the wild – it is extremely important. Must use all possible ways and signs to navigate in unfamiliar terrain and choose the right path to salvation.
In many areas of extreme travel at night is extremely dangerous. This has to be resorted only when it is impossible to go during the day because of the heat or other reasons. But clear, starry night – the perfect time to to navigate by the stars and to chart the route the next day. Of course, orienteering at night is quite limited, since it is not always the sky is clear and the stars are clearly Read more [...]

This makes for heroic stargazing. According to the IDA, piece you may see round 500 stars in your middling light-polluted backyard, Night Sky Parks much brag more Read more [...]
COMING TO LAND COMET
To our planet at high speed approaching comet C/2009 R1, was opened in 2009. In mid-June in the northern hemisphere will be able to see this object in the sky with the naked eye.
According to NASA, now a comet can be seen with binoculars before sunrise in the northeastern part of the sky, in the constellation Perseus. By 15 June it reaches the minimum distance from the Earth.
The head of the celestial body size larger than the diameter of Jupiter and is a cloud of gas around a greenish comet nucleus. Tail length is about a million miles away. Read more [...]
Dead starfish in Wales
Several hundreds of dead starfish have been found stranded on a beach in North Wales, the BBC reports.
Naval officer Barry Davis said that sea stars can be ejected during spring tides, but it is not clear why they migrated so far from the shoreline.
The Chairman of the Committee the harbour in Barmouth intends to hold an official inquiry to determine the causes of the incident.
Advisor Trevor Roberts added: «What I would like is a full report of the experts about what caused the death of these sea stars.»

According to researchers at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, at the beginning of the solar system, when our sun was still in the stage of active formation in the system are prerequisites for the development of the two stars and our Sun could well under certain conditions, be a binary system. It did not happen.
That led scientists to suggest the probable binary system? The fact that the planets in the solar system are not on the same plane, but with some deviation relative to each other and the Sun's equator. Says physicist and study author Constantine Batygin, such deviation Read more [...]
Many winter enjoy watching the night sky - it seems that the winter stars are larger and brighter. This feeling is understandable. Winter constellations actually brighter. We do not see in the winter are the stars that summer.
The part of the sky, which is available to us on summer nights in the winter is over your head during the day. Conversely, part of the sky that summer day was the winter show at night. Just in this part of the sky and are especially beautiful and bright constellations - Orion, Taurus, Canis Major. That winter, we see, for example, Sirius - the brightest star that shines Read more [...]
A giant balloon filled with helium, drifting over Antarctica, at an altitude of about 36 kilometers. Launched on Christmas Day, he is hypersensitive telescope BLAST (Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope) with almost two-meter mirror, which is measured in submillimetre light waves coming from the area of the so-called star nurseries in our Milky Way.
This "Christmas start" - the last of five research program on the study of our galaxy. Scientists hope that in this last mission BLAST show why there are so few stars are born. After a test flight in 2003 in New Mexico and Read more [...]

Despite our limited resources SETI, the most powerful of them, we would have already noticed. Yet nothing like this has not happened ...A team of astronomers led by Andrew Seeds (Andrew Siemion), including Jill Tarter (Jill Tarter), who heads the SETI, analyzed the results of the observations of the radio telescope in Green Bank. Considered 86 candidates for planetary systems discovered Space Telescope "Kepler".
The observations were made for frequencies in the 1.1-1.9 GHz (the same ones that operate cell phones), but only for the signals in a very narrow range, no wider than 5 Hz. Read more [...]
Today, scientists at Berkeley used a telescope "Green Bank", located in West Virginia. With this device they intend to detect radio signals sent from the planets orbiting 86 stars, intelligent races. Until now, there was no sign of life in outer space, but researchers had been calculated, according to which the Milky Way is present less than one star in a million, carries the well-developed civilization to send and receive signals of this kind. The oddest thing was that the scientists say: even in this situation in our Galaxy are able to exist millions of advanced races and their various Read more [...]
