Greetings from the Hubble: Treasures Large Magellanic Cloud

January 24, 2013 22:34

To the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite Milky Way, about 200 thousand light years. In a slow, long dance around our galaxy huge cloud of gas is compressed to form new stars, which, in turn, illuminated gas clouds, giving a riot of color to the eye (with the help of the space telescope "Hubble", of course).

LMC packed active regions of star formation. Of the Tarantula Nebula (brightest stellar nursery in our cosmic neighborhood) to the subject LHA 120-N 11 (part of which fit in this picture) — for this small irregular galaxy and

Can not completely exclude the possibility that life could exist on planets where life seems impossible and infernal heat, and with utter cold and terrible pressure, without air and without water. This convinced the chief researcher at the Institute of Space Research, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Honored Scientist Leonid Ksanfomality.

— I am against the "earthly chauvinism": life forms unknown to us, may not need to be "normal" in terms of

First thing to note is the large size of these figures. So, one of the smaller pieces — the image of a spider — has a diameter of about 45 meters, while the length of the "Anhinga" — more than 250 meters. Reaching view of a figure from the ground and realize that it is impossible. To do this, or take a couple hundred feet above the ground, or going with a compass and tape measure along the lines of the drawing and consistently putting on a piece of paper all of its twists and turns, make

Geometry NAZCA: Probing location? (Part 1)

Study naskanskih materials shows that this whole kaleidoscope of images consists of several types of them, which are superimposed on one another, destroying some or all previous ones. Applying imaging sequence was as follows:

First was laid Network "reference points", of which in different directions were carried out thin lines of different lengths (some fine lines was also held in addition, bypassing the "anchor points"). Then there were the figures depict animals and other symbolic figures. Typically, the line of the circuit is connected to a thin straight lines like leaving and returning
