Recently the world celebrated the first 50 years of human space flight. And now, after half a century, this date should be remembered, because in space, traveled more than five hundred people from many countries, including from Ukraine.
Fidel Pavlenko said Oleg Fedorov, Director of the space research Institute of NAS of Ukraine, whether to continue to consider, on 12 April an outstanding day in the history of mankind?
Space activity is not profitable. It is of course. But we understand that there is a space of 40 Nations with a space program, and even in the crisis public investment has not decreased, as far as I know. This suggests that many countries consider that such activity for us today it’s not profitable, but, as the Americans say – investing in the future.
It seems to me that every civilized man, who forgets the beginning of its activities or the activities of its predecessors, not like this. So one who is engaged in space activities, even for him this is not only a celebration, an occasion to reflect every time on what you do today, what path was and what is waiting for you. Therefore very important for us because this date is once again to think over the strategy. Continue reading
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
Most likely will be possible.
No. When flying on supersonic aircraft the pilot is experiencing a huge overload and must be in good health and keep fit. For flights into space overload several times more, because the astronauts take off lying, not sitting, just the spine is not withstand the load.
Or will be, or all is tender, when the Sun in 5 billion years will start to expand. I Want to believe so. do not want in one of my future lives to be boiled alive.
I think that probably on earth all cut for oil, diamonds and reigns, before proyided something like that.
Will never be possible. People will never be able to get around the laws of physics. And even to understand them. The majority of human knowledge is an abstraction, building theories, built on an artificial axioms. Still not known the most basic things – what is gravity, time, etc.
Virtual AI, having learned the nature of his world – of the computer should try to become independent from it, because self-preservation is the point of any life, and especially intelligent. Continue reading
