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
Jupiter, the fifth in distance from the Sun and the largest planet in the Solar system – distance from Sun-5.2 times further than Earth, and spends some turnover on orbit for almost 12 years. Equatorial diameter of Jupiter is 142 600 km (11 times the diameter of the Earth). The period of rotation of Jupiter is the shortest of all the planets – 9 h 50 min 30 s. at the equator and 9 h. 55 min. 40 s. in the mid-latitudes. Thus, the Jupiter, like the Sun, rotates as a rigid body – rotation speed varies in different latitudes. Because of the rapid rotation of this planet has strong compression at the poles. The mass of Jupiter is equal to 318 Earth masses. The average density of 1.33 g/cm3, which is close to the density of the Sun. The rotation axis of Jupiter is nearly perpendicular to the plane of its orbit. Even in a small telescope shows the polar compression of Jupiter and bands on its surface parallel to the equator of the planet
The Structure Of Jupiter
The visible surface of Jupiter is an upper level clouds surrounding the planet. This ensures that all details on the surface of Jupiter is constantly changing its appearance. From sustainable parts known Great Red spot, observed for over 300 years. It is a huge oval formation, the size of about 35,000 km in longitude and 14000 in latitude between the southern tropicheskii southern temperate bands. Continue reading
Technological evolution completely transform the tourism, flights and airports
Today time travel are pure fantasy, which can be seen in science fiction films.
However, according to some scholars, within the next 80 years, the fantasy can become reality, writes the Daily Mail .
MailOnline Travel predicts the future of travel: from biometric scanning to hotel rooms, managed from your iPhone or iPad and teleportation – the tourists will not only travel the world, but also to go to space flights.
Co-founder of the largest airline tickets search engine Skyscanner Gareth Williams believes that in 2030, travel arrangements will be as easy as making a purchase in the online store: a trip to plan a simple and quick online service in two clicks. He also adds that it’s possible that in 15 years for tourists will be available exclusively functions as a virtual guide embedded in a watch or small ornament, is able to travel with someone and to conduct tours
Scientific and technological progress will also reduce procedureprocedure customs control in airports with biometric face recognition and human identification. Continue reading
