Asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass close to Earth November 8, 2011

Asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass close to Earth November 8, 2011 It is interesting

Asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass at a distance of 325,000 kilometers from Earth November 8, 2011 and, therefore, will be at the Earth closer than the moon.

Asteroid threat to Earth is not, but scientists say that calculate the trajectory of the cosmic body exactly to 100% impossible. It is the largest in 17 years, a space object which approach Earth at a distance of 0.8 lunar orbit. In 2028 2001WN5 asteroid passes by earth at a distance of 0.6 lunar orbit.

The asteroid was discovered

Reducing the thickness of the ozone layer over the Arctic

Reducing the thickness of the ozone layer over the Arctic Scientists prove

An unusually long period of low temperatures this winter and spring has caused an unprecedented reduction in the thickness of the ozone layer over the Arctic. Studies show that the destruction of the ozone layer over the Arctic in 2011, comparable only with the appearance of the ozone hole over Antarctica in the mid-80s.

To study the loss in the ozone layer over the Arctic, scientists nine countries analyzed extensive data on daily observations of trace gases, clouds and ozone, meteorological data and atmospheric models. Scientists have noticed

Slowing global warming — it's a mystery to climatologists

June 21, 2013. Which year scientists struggling with the question about the causes of global warming and projections for its development. Most ordinary people to follow the scientific controversy, not knowing who to believe. Some say that warming is in full swing, others argue that it has slowed down, and others — that it has completed, or not at all.

Clarify and explain what's what understandable to the common man, took the floor scientist Justin Gillis (JUSTIN GILLIS). In an interview with the newspaper «The New York Times» he said that warming is happening and that in recent years

Area ice surfaces in the Arctic continues to decline, reaching a second minimum

Area ice surfaces in the Arctic continues to decline, reaching a second minimum Scientists prove

The data obtained from NASA satellites and the National Information Center for the snow and ice at the University of Colorado (NSIDC), confirmed that the area of ice in the Arctic has declined over the summer to almost record levels of 2007.

Arctic ice cap increases in winter and decreases in summer, reaching each September lows. However, atmospheric and oceanic conditions are not contributing to the melting of ice on such a scale, in contrast to 2007.

According to the chief scientist Goddard Space Flight

Studies shed new light on the destructive properties of ultraviolet rays

Studies shed new light on the destructive properties of ultraviolet rays Scientists prove

The scientists found that ultraviolet rays have a more devastating effect than once thought.

The sun emits UVA (short wave) and UVB (long-wave) radiation. Previously it was believed that these rays do not destroy the deep layers of the skin. New research Kings Kolleldzh in London found that UVA rays are much more carcinogenic, which underlines the need to avoid sunlight and solarium.

According to Professor Anthony Young damage increase due to the fact that, penetrating into the epidermis, it dissipates in the opposite direction. "Basal layer,

Science counts the number of carbon emitted during fires in the red center of Australia

Science counts the number of carbon emitted during fires in the Red Centre of Australia Scientists have shown

A huge amount of carbon released into the atmosphere from forest fires in central Australia. About 20% of pasture south Tennant Creek, Northern Territory state burned this year. Employees of the countries of the British Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research in Alice Springs believe that this is an example on the basis of the existing ecosystem takeoff followed by recession. Unusually wet years with a sharp increase in grass and bushes replaced fire season with a huge carbon footprint.

"Carbon will still
