The answer to the question of how in the coming years will be Russia’s contribution into the process of full exploration by the inhabitants of the Earth, not yet clear
Before the first manned flights into space, many physicians feared that in weightlessness the astronaut may be a different disease: ulcers and kidney stones, sudden weight loss, softening of bones, decreased muscle tone, the development of sea-sickness, disturbance of the orientation and other misfortunes. But in reality it turned out that astronauts in General are more or less able to adapt to microgravity and not to experience any serious discomfort, especially in flight conditions, the duration of which does not exceed 6-10 months. In order to reduce harmful effects to a minimum, the astronauts, while in orbit, exercise, diet, etc.
But how will affect the human body long-term space flight, lasting several years, physiologists have collected insufficient data.
In light of the active conversations and different messages about the future of manned human flight to Mars, which include the experiment “Mars-500” and recent statements by President Barack Obama . this information is very necessary. Continue reading
The planets and moons in orbit of the Sun
The largest planet in the Solar system. this is a Jupiter belonging to the class of gas giants. Ancient astronomers were able to detect and assign a very unusual name this planet. Named in honor of one of the most revered Roman gods, Jupiter is not in vain was honored to be the namesake of the thunder gods. For large-scale weather events, continuously produced in the atmosphere of the giant, strength and scale can outdo the deeds of the most powerful gods! Imagine the worst stormy weather on our planet. And now imagine the same thing, but only 10 times more intense and more powerful. These horrific lightning strikes, as if the gods went crazy and wants to destroy everything. Wild, wild the storm that engulfs everything in its path, and sometimes of centuries.
Jupiter is not alone in its orbit, having 67 different dimensions of the satellites. Like any ordinary giant planet has attracted much attention of scientists. A lot of research spacecraft was sent to Jupiter during the long years of study. Periodically, during the great opposition, Jupiter looks like the brightest star in the heavens. In this period of time activates the monitoring planeteurodisco ground-based and orbiting telescopes. Continue reading
Solar system — the planetary system that includes a Central star — the Sun — and all the natural space objects orbiting the Sun. It was formed by gravitational contraction of the dust cloud around is 4.57 billion years ago. Note: the sun is not a planet.

Pluto is the decision of the MAC (international Astronomical Union) no longer applies to the planets of the Solar system, and is a dwarf planet and even inferior in diameter another dwarf planet Eris. Designation 134340 Pluto.
Scientists have put forward many versions of the origin of our Solar system. In the forties of the last century Otto Schmidt put forward the hypothesis that the Solar system arose because the cold dust cloud attracted by the Sun. Over time the cloud formed the foundations for future planets. In modern science it is theory that Schmidt is the principal. Continue reading
