Changes in the Solar system

The solar system is entering a new era

From the sun to the Earth

Let’s start with the Sun. According to astrophysicists, since 1901 the intensity of the magnetic field lights grew by 230 percent. Recently, media reported about a powerful polar auroras in areas where such phenomena are usually not observed.

By the way, remember that the impact of magnetic storms on human health are talking fifteen or twenty years ago, no more. Maybe the impact just wasn’t so noticeable…

On mercury were discovered in polar ice and a powerful magnetic field. On Venus in less than 40 years on two and a half thousand per cent increase in the brightness of the Aurora. Also, there have been significant global changes of the atmosphere. Over the past decade more than 200 per cent increase in the brightness of the cloud of plasma surrounding Jupiter.

On Saturn for the last 30 years there has been a significant decrease in the rate in the Equatorial flows. In addition, increased x-ray radiation coming from the planet’s equator. Continue reading

Comet

Comets fascinate the human mind since ancient people first noticed the white tail streaking through the night starry sky. We remember the date when the comet flies past the Earth once a century or even less often and remember all our lives. In the middle ages in Europe, the appearance of comets was often linked to various natural disasters and diseases. In religion, these heavenly bodies also play an important role. For example, in the New Testament, the comet heralded the birth of Christ.

Astronomers find comets also interesting and fascinating space objects, because they are witnesses of great historical events and even carry evidence of them.

The comet is a relatively small object in our solar system, usually having a diameter of several kilometers. Sometimes called “dirty snowballs” because of their component substances. Usually comets are composed of the following four elements:

Dust

Ice (water, ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide)

Some organic materials (e.g., resin)

Rocky ground (optional) Continue reading

Future technology

Space tourists have already bought vouchers from Roscosmos for millions of dollars, which means that interplanetary travel ceased to be only a figment of the imagination of science fiction writers. Mankind has realized at last that the earth’s resources ischerpaemy, and set his sights on the conquest of the territories on a much larger scale and very different properties. There will be dozens or hundreds of years, and prepapre…our great grandchildren, perhaps when meeting have to introduce myself, “Hey, Hey, I’m from Earth. We got such a strong gravitational field, and there’s somehow easier to breathe”.

Interesting development in this area is the space Elevator, which will allow you to run in a cargo space without using rocket equipment. For the first time this thought Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and in the twenty-first century NASA is already funding the development of this project. In the future it will be cheaper than building the missiles the media.

In fact, it must be a cable anchored to the Earth’s surface on a moving vessel at one end and the other adjacent to the space station, fixed stationary relatively to the planet. Continue reading

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…

Perm planetarium
Space gives us presents! Great Christmas gift for fans of astronomy this winter. Comet Catalina (C /2020 US 10) flies to the Ground. Most of 2015, she traveled across the…
