Not one, but three planets found in Gliese 667C’s habitable zone
Scientists using data from the ESO’s
HARPS (High Accuracy Radial velocity
Planet Searcher) have discovered not one, but three super-Earths orbiting in the stellar habitable zone of Gliese
667C. It’s a record-breaker as far as finding planets where liquid water might exist is concerned, and it means that this habitable zone is as populated with planets as it can get.
“We knew that the star had three planets from previous studies, so we wanted to see whether there were any more,” said Mikko Tuomi, one of the astronomers from

C o r i n n e Knoesen’s airy London home is a lesson in the art of compromise. ‘When my husband Scherrit and I started househunting, our wish list included a minimum of four bedrooms, a garage and a south-facing aspect,’ Corinne recalls. After an initial fruitless search, the couple pondered what they would do if they found a house that ticked every box but which they didn’t love. ‘The answer was simple: we’d buy it anyway,’ she says.
The Edwardian property the couple eventually found had much to commend it and was just a stone’s throw from a

I’m a 38-year-old divorced woman, and am usually considered attractive. I’ve always had good sexual relationships with men, and never really thought I’d have a lesbian affair. But that was before Ellie came into my life.
I was on vacation, lying on a beach in Florida, when a very striking woman laid out her blanket near mine. She was built like a fashion model—tall, slinky, all arms and legs, and her sky-blue swimsuit emphasized her assets perfectly. As we struck up a conversation I found myself hoping it wasn’t too obvious that I was wearing falsies in my top to

The South Ural farmers have found new ways of manure into a valuable organic and mineral fertilizer without the expense — the annual volume of waste in poultry and pig farms of the Chelyabinsk region has reached 1,000,000 tons. Technology developers claim that cost of fertilizer from manure is three times lower value on the market of mineral fertilizers. The peculiarity of this technology is that by processing raw it loses its toxic properties and at the same time preserves the nutrients needed for plant growth.
After the stabilization and chemical decontamination manure is mixed with mineral

Research vessel "Aldan"
Research vessel "Aldan" left the place Search the famous caravels — Ice Harbor, the place where in 1596 a Dutch expedition led by skipper Willem Barents held its most difficult winter in an attempt to pass the northern sea route from Europe to India.
Search engines work on the site of the sinking started in 1977, followed in 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1991, 1992, 1995, 2006, 2008 and 2009 in the Ice Harbor worked next expedition.
Despite the fact that the ship is still not found, can not be said that

Scientists from the international expedition discovered two new fields of gas hydrates in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Sea of Japan, also found the highest in the world of underwater stream of bubbles of methane, the head of the expedition, Head of Department of Geology and Geophysics of the Pacific Oceanology Institute, Far Eastern Branch (POI), RAS, Doctor of Geology and Mineralogical Sciences Anatoly Obzhirov.
International expedition on research vessel "Academician Lavrentiev" has gone from Vladivostok to Sakhalin on August 7 to explore and identify new deposits of gas hydrates. First, such studies were also conducted in the Sea

Combined search party from the military intelligence battalion of mountain infantry connection of the Southern Military District (SOUTH) in conjunction with the search party, "Elbrus Memorial" provides for the remains of soldiers killed in the battle for the Caucasus in 1942, in two directions — the pass-Donguz orun and southern edge of Mount Elbrus. The total area of the planned exploration is 17 thousand square meters. m As of August 9, examined more

Genetic studies of people in this country have begun long ago. During the persecution of genetics they moved into the shadows, but then resumed with renewed vigor: studied peoples of the Caucasus and the Pamirs, Central Asia, and especially the small peoples of Siberia. But here's the Russian unlucky, because more people were not considered such an interesting subject. However, scattered populations of Russian studies were conducted at all times.
In 2000, our team (Medical Genetic Research Center) gathered into a common database all the accumulated information, and since 2001 we are holding their own

Scientists of the Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas managed to find viable fungal spores at the deepest point of the Black Sea (2000 meters). Soil samples were taken for the first time during the 72-th voyage of the research vessel "Professor Vodyanitsky."
Mycologists from the Odessa branch of the IBSS has already been able to germinate spores, but so far scientists have been slow to draw conclusions about what to include what kind of mushrooms, reportsNR2.Ru.
"We are not saying that there is life in the hydrogen sulfide.'s A complicated question, although
