Top 5 for the day
Automatic interplanetary scouts NASA, the European space Agency and others currently collecting information about our Solar system. Right now the spacecraft are in orbits of Sun, mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Saturn, flying to other small space objects.
Thanks to the astronauts and to all automatic mechanical scouts in space, we have the opportunity to see “family” Photos of our Solar system.
Recover in the journey.
For a start look at our Earth. It looks like Moscow, when the ISS passes over the territory of Ukraine, February 2, 2015. Scientific evidence indicates that Earth formed from the solar nebula about of 4.54 billion years ago. Presumably life appeared on Earth about 3.9 billion years ago, i.e. during the first billion after its occurrence.
So it looks from space, the Salt flat of Uyuni — dried salt lake in the South of the desert plain Altiplano, Bolivia at an altitude of about 3 650 m above sea level. The inner part is covered with a layer of salt thickness 2-8 m During the rainy season salt marsh covered with a thin layer of water and turns into the world’s largest mirror surface.

Frequently asked questions about the Solar system
How many planets in our solar system?
Our solar system consists of nine planets and one star – the Sun. We list the planets in order of distance from the Sun is mercury. Venus. Earth. Mars. Jupiter. Saturn. Uranium. Neptune and Pluto. In order to remember which planet is farther from the Sun, and what is closer to him (the order of the planets) often use the English mnemonic: M y V ery E ducated M other J ust S erved U s N ine P izzas. If You have Russian analogue of such a mnemonic, then we are happy to publish it, putting in the authorship.
3. What is the shape of the Solar system?
The planets, asteroids and comets in the Solar System are loose particles left over from the formation of the Sun. Originally the gas and dust which would become the Sun was the core of a cloud much larger than the Solar System, probably several light years across; where 1 light year is equal to approximately 10,000,000,000,000 kilometers (or 6 trillion miles).

The future of cosmonautics is determined by the level of training space and related industries: scientists, engineers, and skilled workers. The light of the challenges, real opportunities, interests and prospects of development of the Moscow region state technological University, partnerships with educational institutions and enterprises of space industry of the city, the region, near and far abroad, youth interest in outer space, in the framework of the scientific-educational cluster in the city of Korolev is created m the space use “the Road to the stars”.
Among us are people directly involved in the development of space exploration has historical documents and materials that you want to perpetuate that is one of the main tasks of the virtual Museum. One of the solutions to the problems of staffing and space scientific-industrial complex is the introduction of vocational guidance in the early stages of formation of personality in the activities of institutions of General education aimed at further education in colleges and universities that prepare professionals to work in the space industry, the intensification of the process of scientific and educational training for youth, early engagement of youth to research and design activities.
