The Solar system

In space you can find a lot of quaint places with abnormal high or low temperature. Or meet the largest meteorite, asteroid, the massive comet, the highest mountain, the Grand canyon and much more. On space records in the Solar system in this article and will be discussed.

Planet with maximum surface temperature

The highest temperature that was recorded on Solar system planets — 464 °C on the planet Venus . Due to the very thick atmosphere it holds heat from the sun and at night the temperature is almost constant day and night. Slightly lower was the recorded temperature on the planet mercury — 430 °C.

The lowest recorded temperature on the surface of the body

The largest planet

The largest planet in the Solar system — Jupiter . The diameter of our planet is almost 11 times, and the mass of the earth is approximately more than 317 times. It is a gas giant. which contains more matter than all other planets, their satellites, comets and asteroids combined. Continue reading

The virtual space Museum


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Among us are people directly involved in the development of space exploration has historical documents and materials that you want to perpetuate that is one of the main tasks of the virtual Museum.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.

Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar system

The period of rotation around the Sun

Of 11.86 earth years

The first “date” earthly messenger with the giant of the Solar system – Jupiter was held in late 1973. Still on approach to Jupiter by “pioneer 10”, began to transmit color images of the planet Earth. On the screens in the mission control Center dynamic unfolding panorama of the approaching giant striped. Bright stripes on Jupiter are like ridges over high and cold clouds. And Vice versa: the dark stripes are the valleys between the ridges. Among the atmospheric lanes of the South tropical zone “blazed” the bright colors of the famous Great Red Spot.

Further large-scale image of this amazing education received by “Voyager-1” (the highest resolution on the images was 5 km), allowed us to understand the complex meteorology of Jupiter. It turned out that the mysterious spot has a clearly visible vortex structure: this is a floating disturbance in the atmosphere, in other words, a huge atmospheric vortex. In the spot, there is a rise of the substance and spreading it from the center. Continue reading

Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko are two comets stuck together The researchers of the mission "Rosetta" said the comet 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko acquired its form as a result of collision at a low speed…
