Astronomers have discovered a ninth planet on the outskirts of the Solar system

While it “calculated” on the computer

In 2006, the Solar system lost one of the nine planets — Pluto stripped of planet status due to negligible size. But the discovery of American scientists threatens to return the ninth planet in the system — found a new celestial body, claiming the title.

The staff of the California Institute of technology Michael brown and Konstantin Batygin has published a paper in the reputable scientific journal “Astronomical journal” about his study, in which they “discovered” a new planet in the Solar system.

Celestial body has a mass of 5-10 times larger than our planet, and is about 20 times farther from Earth than Neptune. Despite the fact that Neptune is the most distant planet, until it 4300 million kilometers. Accordingly, before “the ninth planet” – about 8600 million. The problem is that open planet. while no one was looking through a telescope, it was discovered through computer simulation. However, the accuracy of such simulations is very high today.

In the United States launched an experiment to simulate a flight to Mars with a length of 365 days.

The international team of young scientists, selected by competition to participate in this project, included three men and three women.

The crew commander was the American Carmel Johnson, dealing with the problems of soil science and ecology in Montana. Along with it, experiment, physicist, engineer, biologist, physician and architect, who dreams to design a permanent residential complex on Mars.

Experts from NASA and the University of Hawaii expect that the experiment will help to prepare the first manned flight to Mars, which the space Agency, the U.S. hopes to accomplish in 2030-ies. E

experts plan to examine the medical and psychological issues that may face the crew of the ship departing on a long journey into deep space. To this end, the participants of the experiment in Hawaii will have to implement a fairly complex program of scientific researches, being under constant surveillance. Scientists will monitor the subjects using cameras installed inside the complex, and various sensors mounted on their body. Continue reading

Two Muscovites have got in shorts-sheet of applicants for a flight to Mars

Two Muscovites may well go to Mars. However, only after nine years. And in case of successful realization of the international project Mars One. Candidates for the expedition were selected around the world, and now they will be ready to fly to the eyes of billions of spectators.

For her, it seems, nothing is impossible. It conquers the caves and the mountains, descends into the water and in free flight, as a bird soars above the ground. However, psychologist and fitness trainer Catherine thinks Elias is only the stages of the path. Into space. To Mars. She’s seriously going to be among the first inhabitants of the red planet.

Fascinated fantastic novels, and Bradbury, Strugatsky, the journalist Anastasia Stepanova on distant planets, too, dream of a lifetime. After work in a hurry for courses in basic space Sciences. And even spent two weeks in the desert, in conditions resembling Martian.

Such take in cosmonauts. Anastasia and Ekaterina participating in the project MarsOne. Its creators two years ago announced, Mars will finally have a life. Will founded the settlement of earthlings. Continue reading
