Venus has found traces of recent volcanic activity

10.04.2010

Astrophysicists have found evidence in relation to the recent volcanic activity on Venus. Article scientists published in the journal Science, and its summary can be found at the German Aerospace Center, whose staff participated in the work. A computer model of the probe Venus Express.

In the study, researchers used data on the surface temperature of the planet, compiled spectrometer VIRTIS (Visible and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer — Spectrometer observations of thermal radiation in the infrared and

In the next 10 years the Earth may be icy

Worrying signs

Solar activity seems to be decreasing. This may result in catastrophic changes on our planet. Such fears scare several research groups. Like, the sun came very late in the next 11 years, the cycle of its activity. In — 24th. Next — the 25th, which is expected in 2020, may be late for a year or two. Or does not start. This was reflected in a series of alleged anomalous processes now in our luminary.

For example, with the sun disappearing spots. According to Matthew Penn and William Livingston (Matt Penn and William Livingston) of the U.S. National

What is the fate of Central Asia have prepared for the U.S.? What are the ways they are trying to sideline Russia and China?

What this entails for ordinary Kyrgyz, Tajiks and Uzbeks? This was "Rosbaltu" told the regional coordinator of the Center for the study of Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Volga-Urals Institute of Oriental Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Knyazev.

— Faster rhetorical question, but still … What explains the excessive activity of the United States in Kyrgyzstan? How does their behavior with the conventional wisdom held view that where America — and there chaos? Why is this country malehankih such "honor"? And what do we get in the end?

— Kyrgyzstan, in principle, not an end in itself.

Bulgarian astronomer explained twin peaks of solar activity

Bulgarian astronomer Katya Georgieva was explained by double sun peaks. Her article is accepted for publication in the journal ISRN Astronomy and Astrophysics, and its preprint available at arXiv.org. It is known that solar activity changes with a periodicity of 11 years. In 1967, Soviet astronomer Mstislav Gnevyshev noticed that many charts of solar activity than a maximum peak, but two. Further analysis of the activity of the Sun from 1874 to 1962 allowed the astronomer to establish that the first peak of activity occurs simultaneously in all latitudes, while the second — mainly in the lower limbs. With such

Vitebsk supporters Sannikov interested KGB

Society The KGB had a conversation with a warning Vladislav Voronetski, coordinator of the campaign headquarters of Andrei Sannikov in Vitebsk. Activist Nikolai Zhyrnovskaga the second time cause the draft board, where two employees on the eve of the KGB already talked to him about the inadmissibility of "opposition activity."

Vladislav Voronetsky said that he had been summoned to the dean Vitebsk Technological University, where he is trying to recover on their studies. There he met KGB, who said that he could contribute to solving the problems with learning, if he would give up politics.

Mr. Voronetsky says that

Discovered a mysterious volcanic synchronization Earth

26.09.2010

Volcanoes around the globe strengthen and weaken their activity remarkably synchronously and with a strict period. On the discovery of the planetary rate reported by scientists from the University of Bergen (UiB), Hawaii (University of Hawaii) and Sydney (University of Sydney).

The authors analyzed data on the frequency and strength of eruptions in all the major hot spots (Hotspot) for the entire Cenozoic. Geography included Hawaii, Easter Island, Iceland, Reunion, Tristan, the Galapagos Islands, Samoa, the Azores, Madeira, Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands and St. Helena, Yellowstone

In Guatemala declared anxiety due to the increased activity of the volcano Fuego

"Preventive alert" declared in Guatemala due to significantly increase the activity of Fuego volcano, located 50 km south of the capital. As reported today by representatives of Guatemala, in the crater of natural colossus was an explosion, but from its vents have repeatedly erupted ash cloud that rose to a height of 1.5 km.

Civil defense units are on high alert for the need to evacuate settlements, in the vicinity of the volcano. While the immediate danger to the people there, but scientists do not rule out that as soon as the activity of natural colossus could increase.

Due to

U.S. scientists have found a way to read minds and see other peoples dreams

30.10.2010

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have found a way of high electronic recordings and transcriptions of thoughts and dreams, reports the BBC. In the course of scientific studies, the article which appeared in the journal Nature, they found that the activity of individual brain cells, or neurons, are associated with specific objects or images. Experiments have shown that when a volunteer, for example, thought of Marilyn Monroe in his brain activated a specific neuron.

Demonstrating the participants of the experiment different pictures, Dr. Cerf and his colleagues were able to isolate

Sun will stop life on Earth

13.12.2010

Rodion BRIDGE

Anxiety fears of a global disaster in 2012 revived. Because of the abnormal solar activity may fail all the electronic systems on the planet, and it's completely paralyzes life of civilization, say astronomers.

Experts have calculated that the peak plasma perturbations on our star can fall on the opening of the Summer Olympics, which two years later, to be held in London. In this case, the strongest emission of the solar wind will result in damage satellites, disrupt the electrical and computer networks. The most pessimistic forecasts are as follows:

In 2011, solar activity will increase

01.01.2011

Approximation to the peak of solar activity period will be followed by a powerful electromagnetic emission of radiation. This poses a threat to a variety of equipment and devices, but global cataclysms related to our luminary, scientists do not expect.

The current 11-year solar cycle began in 1996. For unknown reasons, it was delayed, and now the sun "wakes up" before the peak, which will be reached in mid-2013.

It tells Joe Kanches, specialist of the space weather at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States, for about two and
