Solar system – 8 planets and over 63 of the satellite, which are opened more often, several dozen comets and many asteroids. All cosmic bodies move in their precise directional trajectories around the Sun, which is 1000 times harder than any body in the solar system combined. The center of the solar system is the Sun – the star around which orbits the turning of the planet. They do not emit heat and not light, but only reflect the light of the Sun. In the solar system now officially recognized as the 8 planets. Briefly, in order of distance from the sun, we list them all. And now a few definitions.
A planet is a celestial body that must satisfy four conditions:
1. the body must revolve around the star (for example, around the Sun);
2. the body must have sufficient gravity to have a spherical or similar shape;
3. the body should not be near its orbit of other large bodies; Continue reading
100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface (according to the international standards space begins at this altitude), speed – kmh 4000, which is 4 times the speed of sound, so it looks like a tourist flight into space, which you could see in sci-Fi movies or dreamed about since childhood.
Now the dream to see the immensity of outer space has already become a reality.
Who are those 5 people who first saw the Galaxy, read the article. We will also talk about the details of the flight and to quote the impressions of space explorers.
Space tourists – Dennis Anthony Tito

This reckless American with a decidedly non-American name proudly bears the title of “space tourist No. 1”. Anthony Tito is a multimillionaire and entrepreneur of Italian origin. Continue reading
What is the biggest planet? This is of course Jupiter. The atmosphere of the biggest planet on Earth reaches 120 degrees Kelvin or minus 153 degrees Celsius. In addition, the atmosphere of the planet consists of 90% hydrogen and 10% helium. Still, astronomers can’t explain why the largest planet in the world has orange, pink, blue and brown spots. And all because at low temperature the atmosphere of Jupiter must be colorless.
There is only the assumption that the color of the clouds is colored by impurities of sulfur compounds. Also worth noting is that the coloring of the clouds is constantly changing. Photo of the largest planet in the form of a Huge red Spot was obtained by Voyager 1 spacecraft. In 1979, he flew over Jupiter at a distance of 9.2 million miles. The Photo shows a red spot too. This is an area that is too complex and variable wave motion.
This Photo of the largest planet Jupiter is considered to be the most clear, which were once obtained from the Earth. On Jupiter there are also storm clouds, as on Earth. This is the state of the atmosphere of Jupiter, you can see in the Photo below. Near the Great red Spot is the area of a riot of clouds. Low clouds are blue and high white. Here wysokiego and represent storm clouds. Scientists say that these clouds can hardly be seen as proof that the biggest planet in the solar system there is water. It is worth noting that on Jupiter winds reach speeds of 480 km/h. Continue reading
