September 5, 2013. Climate change in the past half century have increased the likelihood of abnormally hot summer in the United States, similar to the summer of 2012, more than four times, say the authors of a study published in the journal Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
Noah Difebo and Martin Scherer from Stanford University evaluated the impact of climate change on the frequency of abnormally hot summer weather in the United States, where the summer of 2012 was followed by an extended drought and forest fires, and July was the hottest month in the history of American meteorology.The Read more [...]
Japanese energy company THURSO denied on Sunday a common earlier message about excess radiation levels 10 million times in the water of the second reactor NPP «Fukushima-1».
From the station «Fukushima-1» today urgently evacuated specialists liquidators after the company reported a sharp spike in radiation levels. The appliances from one of the workers, descended to the second unit showed excess levels of radiation 10 million times. He immediately ran away from the station and reported the incident. Then officials have established — readings were wrong, and Read more [...]
November 16, 2013. At the UN conference on climate change in Warsaw will be presented a summary of the report, which says that by 2100 the level of acidity of the oceans will rise by 70 % (more than 1.5 times) from these indicators and more than 2.5 times compared to pre-industrial levels.
Ulf Riebesell of the research Center ocean German scientific society Helmholtz Zentrum said that globally, the increasing acidity of the ocean means more economic and ecosystem loss. A higher level of acidity is directly related to large volumes of carbon dioxide, which absorbs the ocean.

It means this: I learned from the study of literature, which in those days was fabulous too, with gulkin nose that is good on boxwood handle. So to me Read more [...]
Carbon-14 (14C) found in Japanese cedar, shows that our Sun is capable of producing flash 60 times and more powerful than the one that struck the province of Quebec power grid in 1989. Mysterious surge level of atmospheric carbon -14 in the 12th century, can be a sign that the sun can produce solar storm is ten times worse than anything we've ever seen, According to a team of physicists in an article published this week in the journal "Nature» Nature. Carbon-14 (14C) is produced when high-energy radiation that falls into the upper atmosphere of the Earth, converting nitrogen-14 in Read more [...]

on may 24. Lake Water 2 (Cachet II), located in the southern part of Patagonia, disappeared in less than 24 hours, leaving a muddy puddle. Lake, containing 200 million cubic liters of water poured into the river Baker, increasing its volume in 3 times and having 5 square kilometers square. Since 2008 Porridge 2 was dried up 11 times. People living in the region, are in constant danger of flash floods, which can come down from the mountains. According to experts, if global warming is not stopped, the floods will happen more often.Melting glaciers Colonia is the cause of motion of lakes rivers. Read more [...]
What exactly was the reason many times growing up level of cosmic radiation in the 774-775 years? Maybe the collision of two black holes?In 2012, it became clear that in the years 774-775 BC. e. Earth survived a huge temporary increase in gamma radiation. The question of his nature aroused with serious disputes. Version of the supernova was almost immediately rejected: for such gamma radiation it would have to be a month arhividimoy in Earth's sky. Neither the Chinese astronomers or other representatives of the peoples of written no such notice can not remember, did not manage.The probability Read more [...]
New artificial muscles of nanotechnology yarn impregnated with paraffin, can lift the weight more than 100 thousand times their own, and generate 85 times more mechanical energy than the same amount of natural muscle. By this view, the scientists came from the University of Texas at Dallas, and professionals from their international teams from Australia, China, South Korea, Canada and Brazil. The filaments are made of artificial muscles seamless carbon nanotubes. These hollow cylinders made from the same type of graphite, as usual slate pencils. Themselves nanotubes can be 10 thousand times Read more [...]

In 2012, an article by scientists from the Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, under the direction of Takayuki Saito (Saitoh TakayUKi) And it can now be found in the digital library at Cornell University, but somehow forgot about it, but in vain. The article says that in summer 2013 the gas cloud G2 will be absorbed by the black hole Sgr A * (Sagittarius A *) in the Russian translation of "Sagittarius A star", which is at the center of our Milky Way galaxy, and because of this it will light up in 100 times brighter than the sun in the infrared range of the electromagnetic radiation.

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 [...]
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 [...]
