An unknown object — a “cosmic string” – has been discovered near the milky Way’s supermassive black hole. This cosmic thread will revolutionize our understanding of gravity, space-time, and the Universe itself.
The center of our Galaxy has been intensively studied for many years, but it still holds surprises for scientists. A snake-like structure lurking near our galaxy’s supermassive black hole has become a discovery that teases the imagination of astronomers. “A mystery that became part of the thrill. Science has stumbled upon a mystery that is not easy to solve,” said Jun — Hui Zhao of the Harvard-Smithsonian center for astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “While we don’t have an answer yet, the path to finding it is fascinating.”
In 2016, Farhad Youssef-Zadeh of northwestern University reported the discovery of an unusual luminous filament near the center of the milky way galaxy using a very large NSL Karl j matrix. Yansky (VLA). The thread is about 2.3 light-years long and curves around and towards a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A * (Sgr A *), located at the center of the Galaxy. Continue reading
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.

Solar system. Planets of the solar system
Its center is a huge star called the Sun. It is the closest star that is billions of years gives us light and heat. Without it, impossible would be life on the planet. Around it revolve the planets, of which eight are known today, as well as other celestial objects.
Schematically, the structure of the solar system is as follows:
Man is always interested in the question thus arose our solar system. But it was a long time before scientists were able to answer this question. There were many versions and assumptions on this issue. And today, astronomers are continuing their investigation.
According to a hypothesis of Kant-Laplace five billion years ago there was only a gas cloud. It moved through the universe, but at some point he undergoes certain processes. Then there is compression and then begins the rotation, the center of rotation is the fastest. The temperature at the center of the cloud began to grow and formed a protostar that later became the Sun. The nebula continued to spin, and the star are unable to absorb all the substance of the nebula, they are attracted, experienced, forming planetesimal. One of them appeared on the planet.
