At edge of the solar system there was a huge planet Tyuhe

Tyuhe — either cold gas giant, or cooled down star Scientists insist that there is a massive object. It is two or even four times the size of Jupiter Vladimir Lagowski— 14/02/2011

Even last year, astrophysicists John Mathis (John Matese) Uitmir and Daniel (Daniel Whitmire) from the University of Louisiana (University of Louisiana) asserted: close to the solar system — the so-called Oort cloud — is a very massive object. For example, a large planet that is two or even four times the mass of Jupiter. Perhaps, too, a gas giant. Or cooled down star. I remind the

«MSTA-S», 152-mm self-propelled guns

History of creation Self-propelled gun (SPG) 152-mm caliber 2S19 «MSTA-S» was created by the tactical and technical specification (TTZ) Head Missile and Artillery Directorate (Grau), Ministry of Defence. By the time of his extradition has been made 152 mm self-propelled howitzer 2SZ «Acacia», 240-mm self-propelled mortar 2S4 «Flower» and 152-mm self-propelled gun 2S5 «Hyacinth». Newcomer SPG 2S19 «MSTA-S» designed to substitute howitzers 2S3 «Acacia». One of the requirements to the latest ACS was its placement on a unified tanks (T-72, T-80) database and installing universal artillery pieces, which could be used in ACS, and the towed artillery. Major developers

Voyager flew to the magnetic foam

Interplanetary probes Voyager, going beyond the solar system, flew in a strange area. Giant magnetic bubbles here to repel the attacks of interstellar cosmic rays.

Spacecraft Voyager, launched to the outer Solar System, scientists continue to present new surprises. Communication with the first and second unit still maintained, and the analysis of incoming data allows us to study the properties of the outer limits of the solar system and the interstellar medium.

Like the Earth, the Sun has a north and south magnetic poles. The magnetic field lines penetrate the solar system and stretched by the solar wind.

Promising propulsion system for small satellites successfully passed the stage of fire tests

On a test basis KBhimmash them. AM Isayev, the first stage firing tests propulsion systems (distribution of pulses rods) for small satellites, developed by the State Research and Production Rocket Space Center "Progress Samara Space Center."

The system of distribution of pulses rods (SWEET) is a promising propulsion system and is designed for orbital maneuvers of the spacecraft, its orientation and stabilization, according to a press release from Space-Rocket Center. SWEET designed and made by experts "TsSKB Progress" block-based tanks and reinforcement of their own making with the use of liquid rocket engines developed by Institute of Engineering and KBhimmash.

German KAZ

Hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, anti-tank guided missiles and charges directed blast (especially the devastating improvised explosive device) — all this represents a severe threat to troops involved in current conflicts and post-conflict situations. Rheinmetall and ADS GmbH has recently developed a set of active defense (KAZ) (Active Defence System, ADS), which is a reliable countermeasure, as demonstrated during recent live-fire tests at the test center Rheinmetall Unterluess in northern Germany, carried out in the presence of about 120 professionals from 10 countries.

ADS is the most advanced and effective protection system in the world of modern military equipment from

NASA believes magnitnyk bubbles at the edge of the solar system

June 7, 2011 — the edge of our solar system is filled with magnetic bubbles, according to new research NASA. Scientists made the discovery by using a new computer model, which is based on data from NASA's "Voyager probes." Unmanned Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, which began in 1977, cruising the outer limits of our solar system, in a region known as the heliosheath. The new discovery suggests that researchers need to reconsider their ideas about the region in the solar system. For more images of this area is the key to our understanding of how fast-moving particles known as
