The ninth planet of the Solar system has been discovered!

The ninth planet of the Solar system has been discovered!Data from the WISE infrared telescope clearly indicate the existence of a ninth planet in our Solar system – scientists at the University of Louisiana are absolutely sure of this.
Astronomers believe that in our solar system there may be an incredible number of celestial bodies of different sizes, about which we know almost nothing. This includes planets and comets that move in long-period orbits. Proof of the existence of such objects will be crucial for all earthlings. Now scientists are on the threshold of the discovery of the Millennium, because they believe that they have discovered the ninth planet Tyche, which by all calculations should exist in our star system!
So it exists! But where did this most mysterious planet come from and why couldn’t it have been found earlier? It’s all about the Oort cloud, whose existence has been proven only theoretically. Astronomers believe that this is a giant cloud located at a distance of up to 1 light year from our Sun, which contains trillions of celestial bodies of large and small sizes. When the outer edge of the cloud is affected by the gravity of passing stars, celestial bodies break out of their orbits and rush through the universe. At the same time, their trajectory necessarily passes through our solar system. This is how comets appear within our borders. Continue reading

The history of cosmonautics

In the West a book about the mysteries of space successes of the USSR: the screams of the dying astronaut and Khrushchev dancing on the table

In the book it is reported that the last words of Komarov in Soyuz, as well as his talks with the Earth “overheard” some analyst of U.S. National security. According to the authors of the book, knew about the unreliability of the ship and the astronauts, signed to fly – the father of two children Komarov and Gagarin (Yuri was assigned as backup). When you return to the ground did not deploy parachute descent, and the engines when hitting the ground exploded. The tragedy occurred near Orenburg.

American intelligence intercepted the last words of Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov, when on 24 April 1967 he raced to the surface and certain death on accident victim “the Union-1”. These were the shouts and curses against “the people who put him in carelessly made spacecraft,” say the authors of a new book that will be released in the UK in April – just in time for the 50-year anniversary of the first manned flight into space.

In 2016 will experience the ship for space tourists

In the second quarter of 2016 the American company XCOR plans to test the first of three versions of the new spacecraft, the Lynx Mk.1, designed for space travel tourists.

The first version of the Lynx Mk.1

The test vehicle will be held in the Mojave desert, where he will specially prepare a runway. During the flight test, the vehicle will gradually rise to a height of 60,9 thousands of meters. After the tests, the ship used for the training of pilots.

The second version of the spaceship

A second version of the spaceship Lynx Mk.2 will build together a company XCOR and Space Florida at the Kennedy Space center. The ship is designed to lift to a height of up to 100 thousand meters and is designed for four Shuttle flights in a day. At the maximum height of tourists in the next 4 minutes will be able to experience weightlessness and see through the portholes round the Earth. Continue reading
