Earth barely escaped the strongest in the last 150 years of geomagnetic storms

Eau fastest coronal mass ejection on record

July 23, 2012 a massive cloud of solar material was ejected from the right (looking from the Earth) the Sun in space.

Event registered Observatory solar-terrestrial interaction (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory, STEREO) NASA. After analyzing the data it was found that this had a coronal mass ejection rate between 2880 and 3520 km / s.

STEREO was able to estimate the rate of release in the first place, because this mission provides data from two devices that are in different locations. One ahead of Earth in its rotation around the sun,

More than 10 percent of all extrasolar planets have on their surface oceans. These are the results of computer calculations performed by the Japanese researcher from the Tokyo University of Technology. 44-year-old Shigeru Ida published them on the eve of a major scientific symposium, which will open

The inversion of the magnetic field of the Earth happens every geological epoch

Schematic illustration of the geomagnetic field of the Earth, by Peter Reid (click image to enlarge)

Scientists know that our planet for thousands of years has repeatedly changed the direction of the magnetic field is reversed.

Imagine that some 800 000 years ago, if we were with a compass in the hands of the person to what is now called the north, the arrow pointing to the "south". This is because the magnetic compass is calibrated to the direction of the Earth's poles. If the polarity of the magnetic field has changed today, to mark the

Pokaiņi — Latvian anomaly that affects all of the events of the Earth

August 23, 2012 10:28

In a place in the parish Pokaiņi Naude Dobele District Latvia is anomalous zone, which has a significant impact on the Earth's electromagnetic field, and, accordingly, all the events taking place on the planet — from wars to violence of elements. Here bring their patients, traditional healers, claiming that visiting Pokaynskogo forest nourishes the body with natural energy. But physicists and physicians do not recommend exposing your health at risk.

Change threatens our planet's magnetic poles

The first alarm information published in the scientific journal «Geophysical Research Letters» Scientists from the University of Paris Diderot. Hulo Gauthier and his colleagues studied a long time anomalies in the magnetic field of our planet. Scientists argue that the so-called inversion, when the North and South magnetic poles exchange places, it could well happen. Find out the exact date of cataclysm could not: a computer model for more accurate conclusions are not enough data, they have to collect a minimum of 20 years.

Which would not seem fantastic idea about the change of the magnetic poles, yet

At the Earth poured this year's first meteor rain

That night, it was possible to watch one of the most beautiful celestial phenomena. At the Earth poured this year's first meteor rain, so-called flow Quadrantids. Every year, it starts at the same time — in the period from December 28 to January 7. This time the scene was much brighter.

Moonlight is not eclipsed shooting stars, so it was clearly visible. In an hour you can be counted up to hundreds of meteors. The most beautiful night sky was over the Northern Hemisphere. But the people of the South — so lucky. During stellar rain they

Published schedule of the largest meteoroid 2012.

Research website Space.com published schedule for the sky on the earth will appear meteor showers in 2012. The first in the next year, and it is 3-4 January 2012., Suitable star to Earth stream Quadrantids. It is expected that it will have the greatest density. According to the researchers, observers in the northern hemisphere may record an average of 120 per hour.

These dense streams of meteors will occur in November 2012. — From the 5th day, with an interval of about a week, will approach the Earth once 3 stream — Southern Taurids, Northern Taurids and Leonids. By

In Middle Earth happened to be involved in star wars

A group of Japanese researchers from Nagoya University under Professor Fusy Miyyake examined sections of ancient cedars that grew in Europe. And found that in the early Middle Ages they — cedars — were powerful energy attack. As a result, the content of the radioactive isotope carbon-14 in the wood has increased by 20 times. According to the annual rings Japanese found that a burst of radiation in the 775 year.

Carbon-14 is formed after

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. Frost always arrive just in time to flowering apple, cherry, strawberry, pear, choosing the sacrifice on your taste, sometimes some of the victims. But the tomato and cucumber seedlings destroyed almost always. Our resentment, helplessness and counting irreplaceable losses expected yield had no way out.

At the Earth Star shed rain

The first meteor shower in 2012 will be able to observe the inhabitants of the planet. Earth passes through the Quadrantids meteor shower. After a couple of hours just come its peak. At night, those who are lucky with clear weather, can watch a hundred shooting stars per hour.

In Moscow and the region, however, expected low clouds. But do not despair. Each year, the planet passes through several meteor showers, consisting, as scientists believe, of tiny fragments of ancient comets.
