Experiment on the preparation of the flight to Mars was a success

Another event of the week associated with the desire of people to fly: successfully completed a 500-day scientific experiment in preparation for the manned mission to Mars. However, the question whether there is life on Mars remains open. Studied, rather, the behavior of people on the way there and back. Sealed in March 2010, the capsule was opened and 6 members of the international crew went “free”.

They returned to Earth, as if really have been on another planet. A little confused and almost not reacting to the flash of Cameras, personalty trying to see through the crowd of family and friends.

Journey to Mars lasted 520 days. In a specially constructed pavilion, not looking up from the Ground, they flew to the Red planet. 1.5 years in seclusion were 6 people. Continue reading

Changes in the Solar system

The solar system is entering a new era

From the sun to the Earth

Let’s start with the Sun. According to astrophysicists, since 1901 the intensity of the magnetic field lights grew by 230 percent. Recently, media reported about a powerful polar auroras in areas where such phenomena are usually not observed.

By the way, remember that the impact of magnetic storms on human health are talking fifteen or twenty years ago, no more. Maybe the impact just wasn’t so noticeable…

On mercury were discovered in polar ice and a powerful magnetic field. On Venus in less than 40 years on two and a half thousand per cent increase in the brightness of the Aurora. Also, there have been significant global changes of the atmosphere. Over the past decade more than 200 per cent increase in the brightness of the cloud of plasma surrounding Jupiter.

On Saturn for the last 30 years there has been a significant decrease in the rate in the Equatorial flows. In addition, increased x-ray radiation coming from the planet’s equator. Continue reading

Comet

Comets fascinate the human mind since ancient people first noticed the white tail streaking through the night starry sky. We remember the date when the comet flies past the Earth once a century or even less often and remember all our lives. In the middle ages in Europe, the appearance of comets was often linked to various natural disasters and diseases. In religion, these heavenly bodies also play an important role. For example, in the New Testament, the comet heralded the birth of Christ.

Astronomers find comets also interesting and fascinating space objects, because they are witnesses of great historical events and even carry evidence of them.

The comet is a relatively small object in our solar system, usually having a diameter of several kilometers. Sometimes called “dirty snowballs” because of their component substances. Usually comets are composed of the following four elements:

Dust

Ice (water, ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide)

Some organic materials (e.g., resin)

Rocky ground (optional) Continue reading

Space string
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…

What do you think, will it be possible flights to other stars?
Most likely will be possible. No. When flying on supersonic aircraft the pilot is experiencing a huge overload and must be in good health and keep fit. For flights into…
