Our Solar system is one of the constituents of the Galaxy. Here the milky way extends for hundreds of thousands of light years. The Central element of the Solar system – the Sun. Around it revolve eight planets (the ninth planet Pluto was excluded from this list because he has the mass and gravitational forces are not allowed to be in the same row with the other planets). However, each planet is similar to the following. Among them are small and really huge, icy and fiery, which consists of gas and dense.
The largest planet in the Universe is TrES-4. It was discovered in 2006 and it is located in the constellation Hercules. The planet is called TrES-4 orbits the star, which is at a distance of about 1,400 light years from planet Earth.
The largest planet
The planet TrES-4 – ball, which consists mainly of hydrogen. Its size is 20 times the size of Earth. Researchers claim that the detected diameter of the planet by almost 2 times (actually 1.7) larger than the diameter of Jupiter (the largest planet of the Solar system). The temperature of TrES-4 of about 1260 degrees Celsius. Continue reading
Computer enthusiast, a fan of technology and gadgets, love the space, love science fiction, computer games and movies. I think if I learned nothing, spent the day in vain.
Space Agency NASA announced the names of the first astronauts who go into space aboard commercial spacecraft of the first generation and after the mission back to Earth. The selection of the suitable candidates officially complete and it is time for the program of intensive training and preparations for the launch of spacecraft CST-100 at Boeing in 2017.
NASA links with companies such as SpaceX and Boeing, the program Commercial Crew Program, which aims to subsidise innovative solutions in the new generation of advanced spacecraft, whose task will be to deprive the Russian monopoly on manned space flight aboard the spacecraft “Soyuz”.
The long term, this approach has two goals: to make access to low earth orbit more accessible; and to ensure the independence of the American side from other countries in the aerospace field. Continue reading
Description: the Information group devoted to the project Mars One – the establishment of a colony on Mars by 2025, as well as other topics related to space colonization and the expansion of humanity.
The project plan:
2013 – the selection of astronauts launched globally.
Official news from Mars One!
Greetings, dear followers of the Mars One!
I hope the year has started well! We got the exciting opportunity: do you want to lend their active support to our chelovecheskoi mission to Mars? Then this is for you! Currently we have several projects that you can attract volonterov. If you are willing to give of their time and talents for the benefit of our Mars Show… Continue reading
What are the average temperatures on the planets of the Solar system?
For anybody not a secret that earth is the only habitable planet in our Solar system. All the planets, except the Earth, is distinguished by the lack of breathable atmosphere, and many of them are still too hot, or Vice versa — frozen worlds.

“Inhabited area” exists in every star system has planets, it is a certain conditional scope, when in which the planets water can exist in liquid phase. In this connection the planets or their satellites, there are conditions suitable for the emergence of life, similar to earth.
So, hot and cold worlds in our Solar system! What exactly do we know about the temperature of their surfaces and which has an impact on these temperatures? Continue reading
NASA had actually imposed such restrictions. They relate to two lunar stations. These are the ones where he landed the expedition: the first – “Apollo-11” and last – “Apollo-17”. The rest are places where during from 1969 to 1972 she landed another 12 earthlings.
Surely the evil skeptics make the assumption that the cunning Americans want to suppress something. For example, something like the most popular judgment is that on the moon, they never were.
Although, according to the explanation of one of the leading specialists of NASA’s Robert Kelso (Robert Kelso), the creation of such exclusion zones are aimed solely at ensuring the safety of those places, which stayed on the moon people. According to him, the time has come to ensure, since commercial space is advancing so rapidly that soon the moon will be able to zachastili tourists.
On the spot, which went to Neil Armstrong, still have a lot of different techniques, including the launcher
Of course, “space tourists” will want to see the places visited before that of their predecessors – a real American astronauts. Where Neil Armstrong jumped from the steps of the “eagle” and made the lunar dust the first step – “onegiant leap for mankind”. Continue reading
