The order of the planets

Not so long ago such a statement would cause an uproar in any self-respecting astrophysicist and most likely, it ended in the usual enumeration of the several variants of the origin of our Solar system. Today, however, a number of researchers not only did not reject this version and think its main. What is the reason? We will try to understand.

It all started with sightings NASA space Observatory named “Kepler”. The satellite was launched in 2009, and in 2020 due to the loss of orientation in space failed. The Observatory was equipped with incredibly sensitive Photometer and specially designed to search for exoplanets, i.e. planets outside our Solar system like Earth. The ability of the apparatus to observe more than 100,000 stars at the same time very quickly gave the opportunity for scientists to get incredible data about other Solar systems.

In early 2010 the Observatory was discovered planetary system Kepler-33. The star Kepler-33, located in the constellation of Cygnus, was bigger than our Sun, and planets revolving around it, was very close to the parent star. Continue reading

In Moscow ended the first flight to Mars is a Young Innovative Russia

In the Institute of biomedical problems of RAS completed an experiment “Mars 500” simulation of a flight to Mars. A crew of six people for 520 days spent in the model space ship in as close as possible to those that are waiting for the participants of the expedition real.

The program of the experiment was divided into three stages: 240-day power flights to Mars, a 30-day landing on the planet’s surface and 240-daily returning to Earth. During this time the crew managed to run 106 scientific experiments in the field of clinical medicine, physiology, Microbiology, laboratory diagnostics and health care products.

The third, final, stage of the “Mars 500” was carried out from June 2010 to November 2011 exactly 520 days (the previous two phases lasted 14 days and 105). In the period from 12 to 23 February, three members of the crew “were on Mars.” They made special exits in the Martian module, where he studied the “Martian” soil, put different kinds of experiments. During the release was simulated the situation when one of the men “broke” his arm. Continue reading
