How to Navigate Without a compass

ANCIENT SEAFARING TECHNIQUES BEFORE THE 12TH CENTURY CE

ANATOMY OF A SEXTANT

Shades

Used to help stop glare and make it possible to position the Sun on the horizon through your telescope.

Index mirror

The purpose of this is to capture the Sun or pole star; the angle at which it is located will then be used to establish your position.

Arc

This is the measurement readout, showing the angle of the index mirror when the Sun has been positioned correctly.

Telescope

The viewing point through which you aim at the horizon, before moving the index bar to align the

Earth's magnetic poles change

Earth's core is too deep for scientists to directly measure its magnetic field. But to draw conclusions about changes in it can be, and by observation of the earth's field at the surface of the planet and in kosmose.Soglasno results of a new analysis of data in the core areas is to undergo rapid change in magnetic characteristics. According to the Geophysics Institute of Geophysics of Paris (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) Kull Arnaud (Arnaud Chulliat), the area may be responsible for the removal of the magnetic poles of the northern part of Canada.

North

Moscow Design Bureau "Compass" has created a range of mobile-based surface ships and submarines, which allows you to quickly deploy bases in coastal areas that do not have adequate infrastructure. As expected, the new complex will be unveiled to the public at the 5th International Maritime Defense Show IMDS-2011, which will take place in St. Petersburg on June 29 — July 3, 2011.

Implementing will arrive within 15-30 days depending on the complexity of its equipment. Stand-alone point of basing ensures not only parked vehicles, but also their maintenance, electricity supply, high pressure air and nitrogen.

North Pole migrates to Russia

Archive

7.03.11.Severny magnetic pole moves from Canada to Russia at a speed of about 37 miles per year, which makes the compass deviation of about 1 degree every five years.

Over the past ten years the rate of the movement has increased by a third, and now it is happening faster than ever before, according to readers of The Independent journalist Guy Adams.

According to geologists, the movement of the north magnetic pole (it does not coincide with the true north pole, like The Independent) associated with the processes in the molten core of the earth. Observations

The secret of the Vikings — mystic sundial, found by archaeologists

16.04.2013

 

In Greenland found amazing sundial Vikings, with which they sailed the Atlantic. Thanks to this discovery, researchers can assume that the ancient Vikings were more skillful navigators than previously thought. "It has long been known that the Normans were great sailors. But it is now clear that they were using more sophisticated navigational tools than previously thought, "- explained one of the researchers at the University of Hungary Balaz Bernat.

Technology has long seafaring Vikings is an interesting topic for

Robins are guided by the quantum-mechanical compass

European robin (bird of the family Drozdov) has long attracted the attention not only of biologists, but also physicists specializing in quantum mechanics. Recent claim that "compass" that are built into the eyes of these birds, determine the direction of the magnetic field of the Earth by means of so-called "quantum binding."

Quantum binding — is a quantum-mechanical effect in which a pair of electrons (or other elementary particles), being separated in space, yet can influence each other. Ten years ago, when physicists first started experiments to study this effect, it is also called quantum teleportation. Demonstration effect requires

Anti-gravity platform VS Grebennikova. Continued Part 2

Rack Platform (steering wheel)I think this is one of the most surprising to you partition — in the sense of novelty of information. So the wheel. The unit stands on the whole order of magnitude more complex than is usually assumed. In the following description I will be guided by the following terminology: the upper segment of the steering wheel — is first, followed by the second and third down, and the lowest — the fourth. Let's start with the first. The first segment wheel is T-shaped welded. On closer examination it turns out that this segment carries
