The price of a ticket into space again broke the record

Today the official price for a ticket into space — $62,75 million per person. For the money the Russian spacecraft Soyuz will carry to the ISS and returning on American, Japanese and European astronauts until the middle of 2016 For five years, a ticket to orbit has tripled in price. So the impact on prices, the monopoly in the field of manned flights in the next five years, only the Russian ships can serve as regular transport to the ISS, and the prices for this type of service dictates the Roscosmos.

Comets and asteroids

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.

Pierre-Jean Beranger

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.

Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar system

Ten interesting facts about the Solar system.

1.Jupiter absorbs space debris

We all know that Jupiter is a planet with a big red stain on the surface and a storm that never stops. Do you know that Jupiter is vital to the safety of the Earth? It is the largest planet and its correspondingly large gravitational force attracts space debris, which would be extremely dangerous, enter it into our orbit. Scientists have documented a number of cases when due to the force of gravity from Jupiter, cosmic debris out of the Solar system.

2.In our Solar system’s five dwarf planets

Dwarf planet is a rather large celestial body, which does not dominate its orbit to be called true planets. However, they do not revolve around other planets, like the Moon. Five dwarf planets include the recently demoted Pluto, Ceres, Eris, Haumea and Makemake. Continue reading

Earth – Chronicles the life

The solar system is changing and nobody knows why

Our Solar system seemed to be something static, immutable and eternal. This is not so. Only in the last 10 years was fixed in a very significant change. Modern scientists are seriously concerned about these circumstances and try to identify why there are these global changes.

Astrophysicists have detected an increase in the intensity of the magnetic field of the Sun. As a starting point they took the beginning of observations, ongoing with 1901. It turned out that its magnetic field has increased over the years by as much as 230%!

Is it any wonder that the Aurora, which not so long ago admired only residents of the far North, now exists almost over the entire planet, including the regions where previously they had only seen on TV.

It should be noted that geomagnetic storms are not as harmless as one might think. Science does not like to dwell on this topic, and still some twenty years ago about geomagnetic storms and are not reported. Continue reading

Christmas comet Lovejoy

Good Christmas gift for this year all lovers of astronomical observations . New for 2015, the comet called Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 will reach visible magnitude, making it visible to the naked eye.

Comet Lovejoy was discovered on 17 August 2014 in Australia through a 0.2-metre telescope, the Schmidt — Cassegrain. It became a discoverer Terry Lovejoy, who has already delighted us with the discovery and became famous because of this. As always, the comet was named in his honor. The comet was first recorded in Terry in the southern constellation the Poop.

7 January 2015 the comet will pass within 0,469 and.e. from the Earth. It crosses the celestial equator 9 January 2015, becoming the object for observation from the Northern hemisphere, and January 30 of 2015 will reach perihelion. The distance of the comet to the Sun at this point will be of 1.29.e. First C/2014 Q2 will move through the constellation of the Dove, and after go into the constellation of the Hare.
