Object with the Saturnian rings discovered outside the solar system

American and European astrophysics first discovered a gigantic system of rings, similar to the rings of Saturn, a planet outside our solar system.

The study authors Mamazhek Eric (Eric Mamajek) from the University of Rochester (USA) and his colleagues from the Netherlands and the UK presented their findings at the American Astronomical Society in Austin (Texas). Astronomers have studied data from international projects SuperWASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) and ASAS (All Sky Automated Survey), concerns a young sun-like stars in the stellar association Scorpius-Centaurus.

This stellar association — sparse and intermittent group of young massive stars — the closest

Still not tired of our weather and climate disasters?

Our agriculture is officially in the zone of risky agriculture. Spring floods and frost, hail and drought in the summer, in the winter biting cold and heavy snow, storms at any time of year.

We tasted these delights in full each year on their own plot in a collective garden near Sverdlovsk.

A huge asteroid hit the planet from orbit

European astronomers have found the cause of the anomalous behavior of the first planet of the solar system — Mercury. According to them, an unusual orbit a celestial body received following a collision with a large asteroid.

The closest planet to the Sun rotates on an unusual orbit — For two turns around the lights Mercury performs exactly three turns on its axis. Modern astrophysics believes that Mercury had to rotate synchronous orbit — rotation around its axis and around the sun would apply in such a way that the planet would always be looking at a star party.

NASA plans to send a probe to Uranus — study "a great and strange magnetic field

The space agency NASA is discussing the possibility of sending a robotic device to Uranus — the seventh planet from the Sun in our system.

Until now, Uranus close range only saw the probe Voyager 2, which flew by the planet in 1986.

Proposed mission provides for a machine that rotates around Uranus just as it does around Saturn Cassini and Galileo around Jupiter in the past, reports CyberSecurity.ru.

Flight automatic probe to Uranus is proposed for

Ocean warn about earthquake

Scripps Institution of Oceanography (Scripps Institution of Oceanography), University of California, San Diego (University of California at San Diego), U.S., has received a grant of one million dollars for the development of deep seismic network. A grant allocated by the National Science Foundation (National Science Foundation), the Associated Press.

The ships usually placed in the ocean seysmochuvstvitelnye sensors that collect information over time. New deep seismic network more efficient. The new project information from the sensors embedded on the bottom, will be transferred to an autonomous unmanned sized surfboard, located on the surface of water. This data then will
