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

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
