Solar system is the planetary system that includes the Sun. and all the objects orbiting it – planets, moons, asteroids. comet. a large number of meteoroids, gas and cosmic dust .

But how was Solar system formed? The universe formed through the Big Bang. There is the Big Bang theory, which says that long ago the universe was small and hot lump. Suddenly it exploded, expanded space, the temperature of the particles decreased considerably. Due to the force of gravity began to gather clouds of matter, the result of which was formed all the galaxies and stars. It took about 8 billion years after the Big Bang, before the Solar system was formed. The matter is unevenly distributed in space and began to attract the dust and gas. Formed dust and gas clouds, they eventually formed star, the Sun. From other particles of the cloud formed other objects.

Components of the Solar system are divided into categories:

1. Planet

3. Small body

The center of the Solar system is the Sun . It accounts for almost all of the bulk system – 99,87 %. Continue reading

Great Hiking on the moon

China completed test heavy carrier rocket “Changzheng-5” (“long March 5”), which will be the basis for its lunar missions. Federal news Agency – at what level is the celestial space.

About the end of the test “Changzheng-5” according to the Chinese media. The development of these rockets was originally planned to be completed in 2008, but funding was only allocated in 2007. In the end, the first tests began in September of last year, and the first test flight is scheduled for September. In 2017 it is planned with the help of this rocket launch to the Earth return vehicle “Chang’e-5” to collect the local soil.

“Changzheng-5” refers to the basic Chinese family of rockets, named in honor of the legendary long March of the Communists in the Civil war in China. “Changzheng-1” was created on the basis of a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead “Dongfeng-4”, launched in 1970 the first Chinese satellite. In fact, from this time begins the history of taikonautti – space Chinese.

However, prior to the 1990-2000-ies the development of the Chinese space was neither good, nor bad. And only in the last 10-20 years there was a serious success. But the speed of development was downright cosmic. Continue reading

The history of Chinese Astronautics

Actually, I got my hands on a smartphone that fully supports navigation using the Chinese navigation system of the Big dipper). On the market, these smartphones should be out in mid to late 2014, but that’s not it.

I thought about how this system works, who and what drove these satellites into orbit and decided to write a brief overview of the history of Chinese Astronautics. Anyone interested — welcome under kat.

Why does the Chinese space program is called chiconautla? Do not suffer, the people of Thailand and Taiwan is not to blame. Just on the Chinese space sounds like (Taicang), which translated means “Too empty”.

The date of birth of the Chinese space can be considered on 16 November 1957. It is in this day was founded by (China national research Institute on rockets) .

Then, of course, he looked a little different.
