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

10 Biggest Things in the Universe

10 Biggest Things in the UniverseOur universe is really huge. Pulsars, planets, stars, black holes, and hundreds of other objects of incomprehensible size that are located in the Universe.
And today we would like to tell you about the 10 biggest things. In this list, we have compiled a collection of some of the largest objects in space, including nebulae, pulsars, galaxies, planets, stars, and more.
Without further delay, here is a list of the ten biggest things in the Universe.
10. The largest planet.
The largest planet in the Universe is TrES-4. It was discovered in 2006, and it is located in the constellation Hercules. A planet called TrES-4 orbits a star that is about 1,400 light-years away from the planet Earth.
The planet TrES-4 itself is a sphere that consists mainly of hydrogen. Its size is 20 times the size of the Earth. Researchers claim that the diameter of the discovered planet is almost 2 times (more precisely, 1.7 times) larger than the diameter of Jupiter (it is the largest planet in the Solar system). The temperature of TrES-4 is about 1260 degrees Celsius.
9. The huge star. 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.
