TASS: Space – the Comet Churyumov

Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko with the module “Fily” reached the nearest point to the Sun

Apparatus “Rosetta” was launched into space in March 2004 with a spaceport in Kourou to study the comet 67P/ Churyumov-Gerasimenko. To the destination apparatus has arrived in 2014 and is currently in orbit around the comet. November 12, 2014 on the surface of the investigated object was launched module “Fily”. He entered the history of space exploration, as the first probe successfully landing on a comet for the first time and managed to drill the surface for the taking of soil samples. Thanks to this unique scientific mission scientists expect to obtain detailed data about the physical and chemical structure of the comet, which will greatly expand human knowledge about the origin of the Universe.

According to him, the closer to the star in recent months, the comet’s activity has steadily increased. This is evidenced by the comparison of Photographs taken by Rosetta, the robot lander with a difference a year last summer and now. Continue reading

The planet Jupiter

Length of day:

To 9.93 hours

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet in the Solar system. The surface of Jupiter are not made of stone, in contrast to the terrestrial planets closer to the Sun. The planet Jupiter is a huge ball of gas the size. Composition of atmosphere: hydrogen(85%), methane, ammonia, helium(14%). The composition of the atmosphere gas giant similar to the Sun. Jupiter radiates into space more heat than it receives from the Sun. The origin of this energy processes occurring in the core of the planet with hydrogen under huge pressure at which the gas acquires properties similar to metal.

Jupiter rotates so quickly that the planet is elongated along the equator. This intense rotation is the cause of hurricanes on the surface of the atmosphere where the clouds look like long stripes of different colors, rotating along the equator of the planet, often in opposite directions.
