Space tourism

Focus on the future characteristic of all mankind. The progressive development of society necessarily reflected in tourism. So, the era of space exploration marked the beginning of space tourism. Mankind began to think about the possibilities of travelling to distant stars. In 2001 Russia launched the first space tourist – the American citizen Denis Tito. Space tour cost him $20 million Space tourism is still very expensive form of tourism. But the growing interest in space travel is forcing tour operators to develop tours of the space, work for the future.

Russia launched the first space tourist – the American citizen Denis Tito. Space tour cost him $20 million.

Japanese Association of Aeronautics established a study group on problems of development of space tourism. The session was attended by over 40 representatives of scientific organizations. The Japanese have developed the concept of tourist rockets reusable, which is able to take a 3-hour space flights with 45-50 tourists on Board. Average tourist flight will cost $25 thousand Is equivalent to the cost of round-the-world journey on sea cruise liner. Continue reading

NASA scientists have discovered the Solar system’s tail

NASA scientists have discovered the Solar system’s tail, like a comet “Tail” of the Solar system, consisting of a flow outgoing from the Sun fast-moving charged particles, shaped like a four-leaf clover. The length of the plume is still unknown. The Solar system turned out to be the tail, NASA

American scientists have found that the Sun moves in space, leaving behind a tail like a comet .

These unique data obtained by the NASA experts. the guiding mission of the IBEX spacecraft, ejected into orbit five years ago.

The probe instrument helped astronomers to see two streams of charged particles coming from the poles of the Sun. Two more flow out on the sides of the star, so her tail resembles a four-leaf clover, NASA said.

Previously, the tailings were observed in some stars, but the fact that it has and our Central luminary, became for scientists a complete surprise. As far as the long tail of the Solar system, astrophysicists still can not say. Continue reading

Comet

Comets are Solar system bodies having the form of vague objects, usually with pale clot kernel in the center and tail. They are among the most beautiful celestial bodies. hazy Bright shell surrounding a core of hazy, long tail, extending sometimes to half the sky, fast motion among the stars – all this makes comet different from other heavenly bodies. The comet can be observed when a small ice body, called the nucleus of the comet is approaching the Sun at a distance that is less than 4-5.e. warmed by the sun, and it begins to stand out gases and dust that are visible as a result of their illumination by the Sun.

Gases and dust released from the nucleus, creating around him a hazy shell – atmosphere of the comet, components along with the core of the head of the comet. The atmosphere of a comet continuously dissipates in interplanetary space: under the action of radiation pressure and interaction with the solar wind gases and dust are carried away in the direction from the Sun forming the comet’s tail.

Most of the comets in the middle of the head there is a bright star-like “core”, representing the illumination of the Central, most dense zone of true gases around the comet’s nucleus. Continue reading
