At the beginning of the 20th century, astronomers Edwin Hubble and Milton Humason discovered that galaxies were gradually moving away from the Milky Way. Or rather, all the galaxies are moving away from each other - and this means that the Universe is expanding. So, once in the distant past, our entire Universe was much smaller, hotter and denser.
To date, astronomers have been able to find and confirm the existence of 4896 planets using the Kepler spacecraft. And just recently a gas giant was discovered with a colossal system of 160 rings, so it would seem that we already know something about what is happening in space.
Repeated analysis of data obtained last year using the ALMA radio telescope, conducted by a group of scientists led by astrophysicists from the Carnegie Institute,discovered a bright flash that occurred last March at Proxima Centauri, a red dwarf star and the star closest to the Earth (after the Sun). At the peak of luminosity, the radiation intensity of our nearest stellar neighbor is 10 times higher than the brightest solar flares ever observed in the same range. In just ten seconds, the brightness of the star has increased a thousand times. A big outbreak was preceded by another, weaker; together they lasted less than two minutes.
Recently published images of direct observations of ice layers under the surface of Mars in mid-latitudes. We tell a brief history of Martian water and the latest news in conjunction with the popular science portal "Attic".
Space- the most discussed and, with it, the most mysterious topic on the entire planet Earth. On the one hand, humanity has learned a lot about it, on the other - we know a tiny percentage of what actually happens in the Universe. Today we look at some of the most interesting facts about space.
Russian Space Systems Holding(RKS, part of the ROSKOSMOS State Corporation) on the 45th anniversary of the Lunokhod-2 mission opened for a wide audience a report on the operation of the communication systems of the automatic stations Luna-21 and Lunokhod-2.The unique document outlines all aspects of the Lunokhod's management, examines in detail the problems that have arisen during the mission, and how specialists on Earth solved them.
We live on a magnificent planet, but do not get tired to strive for more. One glance into space made a man forever dreaming of traveling into his enchanting depths - and now, this dream is close to fulfillment. Powerful telescopes
can already demonstrate what to expect from such an exciting trip.
