Astronomers have discovered the 9th planet of the Solar system?
Giant in the Kuiper belt
Perhaps, the ideas of humans about the Solar system far from reality. Scientists from the University of California, Michael brown and Konstantin Batygin has published a paper in which it is proved that in the Solar system there is at least one full planet .
For the first time sensational work of scientists was published in The Astronomical Journal, later it was reported by reputable scientific journals Science and Nature.
As stated in the work, a new planet, still do not have own names, was found by mathematical analysis of perturbations that experience the body the so-called “Kuiper belt” — space on the outskirts of the Solar system.
According to the calculations of brown and batygina, the ninth planet orbit is at a distance of 20 orbits from Neptune. Revolution around the Sun, this object travels in 10 – 20 thousand years. Planet, according to the findings of researchers exceeds the Land mass 10 times. Continue reading
THE SEARCH FOR AND DISCOVERY OF THE NINTH PLANET
Borislav Of Slavoljub
13 March 1783, William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus. This immediately increased the size of the Solar System twice. According to the observations of the planet was determined by its orbit and the theory of the motion of Uranus. However, the observed motion of Uranus differed systematically from the predicted. This discrepancy has allowed John Adams and Urbain the Verrier theoretically predict the existence of the eighth planet – Neptune. open by Johann Galle on 23 September 1846. The discovery of Neptune was a triumph for the theory of universal gravitation of Newton.
Taking into account the influence of Neptune on Uranus was possible to reduce the discrepancies between the theoretical and the observed motion of Uranus dozens of times, but full precision was not achieved. In 1848 the American astronomer B. pierce suggested the existence of a ninth planet. In 1874 S. great effect constructed a new theory of the motion of Uranus, taking into account perturbations from Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. It also presupposes the existence of a transneptunian planet. Continue reading
Us flies a terrible comet,
It sent the angered Creator.
We are powerless. Doomed planet.
Everyone died. Inevitable end.
In the obdurate depravity without measure
Meanwhile, talking to the peoples of the hypocrites:
We’ve had enough! Old our world.
And drink and eat and continue the feast.
Made in the epigraph of this section of row P. J. Beranger has written more than two hundred years ago, when astronomy was in the beginning of the knowledge of the laws of the Universe and every cosmic phenomenon was perceived as a supernatural manifestation of higher powers beyond the human mind.
