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
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
Our 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
