Planets of the Solar system

Need light 100,000 years to pass from one end of the galaxy to another. Inside this galaxy contains stars and worlds and, maybe, a huge diversity of living and intelligent beings, and cosmic civilizations.

Planets of the Solar system

Scattered among the stars of the milky Way supernova remnants, each of which is a trace of the enormous explosion of a star. Fiber glowing gas is the outer layers of the star, which recently destroyed itself. The gas release returns stellar matter into space.

At its heart lie the remains of stars dense, shriveled up lump of star called a pulsar.

Saturn is a giant gas planet. If he has a solid surface, it is hidden from the human eye a huge cloud layer. Great Saturn’s rings consist of trillions of rotating ice shards.

Only 1.5 billion kilometers is the largest planet in our Solar system — Jupiter. On his dark side and huge flashes of lightning illuminate the clouds, what they first saw the spacecraft Voyager in 1979. Inside the orbit of Jupiter is countless pieces of shattered worlds: asteroids. These reefs and shoals mark granicrete giant planets.

In shallow water the planets of the Solar system worlds have a thin atmosphere and a solid surface planets similar to Earth, with landscapes. For Example, Mars . In 1976, after years of flight, two robot Explorer from the Ground fell on an unfamiliar shore. On Mars there is a volcano area with Arizona, and nearly three times higher than mount Everest. He calls Olympus . Mars is a celestial body with ancient river valleys and fierce sandstorms, the winds carry with half the speed of sound. On its surface there is a huge crack with length of 5000 km. This canyon is called Valley Marineris in honor of the spacecraft “Mariner” arrived from neighboring planets to explore Mars.

Humanity is only the beginning of exploration of Mars and all other planets, stars and galaxies. But, anyway, to complete the journey should be where we started, that is on the Ground, looking at her as if we were in this world for the first time.

There are hundreds of billions of galaxies and billions of trillions of stars. Why only this humble planet has to be habitable? It seems much more likely that the cosmos is full of life and mind. But until every living being, every creature having consciousness, every civilization we know of, living here on Earth. Under these clouds played out the drama of human history.
