For the non-refundable flight to Mars 52 Russians are selected

Dutch company Mars One intends to send the first volunteers to the Red planet by 2023. But our expert explains why it’s not going to happen

Organizers of large-scale colonization of the red planet have previously determined the volunteers who will fly to Mars by 2023

Organizers of large-scale colonization of the red planet have previously determined the volunteers who will fly to Mars by 2023. Dutch company Mars One is counting on that date for $ 6 billion to build a permanent base there.

Just primary have been selected 1058 candidates. Most of them are residents of the U.S. — 297 people. From Russia – 52 volunteers. But by 2015 the project managers will select 24 people who will go to Mars. By the way, the company warns that a return ticket is not provided.

Planets of alien stars

Now we prove the existence of 1783 planets in 1105 planetary systems. And the number of candidates is approaching three thousand. All in all, scientists assume that in our galaxy the milky Way is at least 100 billion exoplanets!

People have long realized that other stars, like the Sun, can have their own planet. And even gave them the name exoplanets or extrasolar planets, i.e. planets outside our Solar system. But to verify the existence of such planets a science was only in the late 1980s. Now it is proved the existence of 1783 planets in 1105 planetary systems. And the number of candidates is approaching three thousand. All in all, scientists assume that in our galaxy the milky Way is at least 100 billion exoplanets. 5-20 billion of them earth-like. Some of the most remarkable exoplanets.

Minitems, that is, exoplanets, which are less in size small even our Earth, Kepler-42 d (also known as KOI-961 d) revolves around the star Kepler-42 in the constellation Cygnus. The radius of the planet is just 0,57 ± 0,18 from the earth’s mass and less than 90 % of the mass of our planet. One year, one revolution around its star, Kepler-42 d lasts for less than 2 earth days. Continue reading

Comets and asteroids

Us flies a terrible comet,

It sent the angered Creator.

We are powerless. Doomed planet.

And drink and eat and continue the feast.
