Brown and Batygin told about the discovery of the ninth planet of the Solar system

Scientists shared their impressions

21 January 2016, two scientists from the California Institute of technology, Professor Mike brown and Professor Konstantin Batygin has officially announced that they have found a ninth planet in our Solar system. According to their mathematical models, it is a gas giant like Uranus or Neptune, the mass of the discovered planet 10 times the mass of Earth, it rotates in an orbit 20 times larger than the earth and it requires from 10,000 to 20,000 years to make one complete revolution around the Sun. However, very reliable model of scientists has demonstrated and existing telescopes have not yet managed to see her.

Scientists have been very mixed on the nature of their activities and perhaps that is why they have achieved such amazing results. So brown has increasingly resorted to methods of observation and explores distant objects in our Solar system, whereas Batygin relies more on the laws of physics and mathematical calculations. Apparently, that tandem allowed the researchers to calculate the so-called ninth planet. Continue reading

Space: Science and technology

“It’s huge”

About the discovery of the ninth planet of the Solar system two astronomers from the California Institute of technology in Pasadena became known on January 20. One of them — the native of Russia Konstantin Batygin — spoke about the search for Planet X, the difficulties with the title the new heavenly bodies and unsolved mysteries of the Solar system.

What is an open planet?

Konstantin Batygin . She falls into the category of dwarf planets. This celestial body is quite massive. Our model gives a mass of about ten earth, this planet is just a giant. Now it is defined as a celestial object whose gravitational field is dominant in that part of the Solar system.

In General, there is not even a question: it’s a planet or not. We know about it, because its gravity affects the orbit of the farthest objects in the Kuiper belt. The very mathematical modeling relies on the fact that this planet has enough mass for gravity to dominate in the Solar system. Continue reading

Scientists warn that sex in space is dangerous for health

Future space tourists are already thinking about what it would be like to have sex in zero gravity. However, scientists hasten to cool the ardor of the lovers: sex in space could harm the health.

Future space tourists are already thinking about what it would be like to have sex in a vacuum. However, scientists hasten to cool the ardor of lovers.

According to biologists, to conceive a child in extraterrestrial environments will most likely not succeed. Space hostile to earthly love, the scientists shrug. Moreover, they say that sex in space could cause irreparable harm to human health. These words are confirmed experimentally. However, I was involved in a potentially dangerous study not people, and plants.

Their cells are damaged when the gravity changes, proved the researchers. In particular, when too high or too low gravity to the negative impact of exposed pollen tube is the vegetative cell of the male zarostka in flowering plants. Gravitational changes are not the best way affect its development and functioning.

In addition, the space environment is threatened intracellular circulation of the plant. Continue reading
