Sport in space begins with a football in zero gravity

So, according to the company, Space Island Group, might look like orbiting the stadium. The game tourists in the ball channels could broadcast live .

Weightless — what is not a reason to invent a whole new class of sports? After all, space sports of one type or another, more than likely. Especially due to the rapid development of the private aerospace business and the increased number of space tourists. Is it any wonder that competition in zero-gravity invented today?

If we talk about professional cosmonauts or astronauts, sports games in orbit for them is obvious. Given the fact that in the future the crews of the expand, and the missions will be very long, like missions to the moon or Mars.

A peaceful “battle” with each other under conditions of zero gravity could help space travelers not only to diversify the flight, but also to maintain health, physical and mental. But for space tourists sport in space can be a great added attraction. Continue reading

The bodies of the Solar system.

Comet often appears to us as a star with a huge tail of fire. But few people know that this tail, it becomes only, when approaching the Sun. Because it is a heavenly body, heating the ice particles that make up the comet makes the fire produced gas and dust.

As already mentioned, the comet is a large lump of rocks, mixed with snow. Jokingly astronomers call them “dirty snowballs” because of their similarity. Actually ice, which is part of any comet, it is nothing like the frozen gas. To solve the mystery of the origin of the Solar system, several spacecraft have been sent to these heavenly bodies, to collect samples of the substance from which they are composed. After all, many scientists believe that comets were formed from the matter early, even before the appearance of the Solar system.

Also there is a theory that the Sun is his second, invisible part of man that attracts comets. After they all gather together, their weight overcomes the force of attraction of the Sun and the movement continues. This, of course, all comets burn. Hence the phenomenon of a meteor shower. This theory may explain the total disappearance of all comets occurring once in 100 million years. Continue reading

ASTEROIDS

The rule of titzius-Bode r=0.3*2n+ 0,4 (.e)In the XIII century, astronomers searched for a planet whose orbit is held in the space between Mars and Jupiter In the beginning of the XIX century Italian astronomer Piazzi discovered the first minor planet (asteroid) Ceres.Opened the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter

The movement of asteroids

The asteroids move around the Sun in the same direction as that of large planitia orbits have large excentricitate of them are removed at aphelion the orbit of Saturn, and perihelion closer to the Earth Mars and Hermes in 1937 passed from Earth to 580 000 km Icarus every 19 years closer to the Ground (2007)

There are about 300 thousand
