The science of studying celestial bodies and the Universe, astronomy . is one of the most important, since the beginning of time and reveals the secrets of our planet, Solar system and the Universe. The solar system consists of the Sun and many other celestial bodies that revolve around the Sun. It is located in Orion, one of the outer arm of the milky Way galaxy . the sleeves of these zones, which are characterized by a low density of matter.
What is in our Solar system?

In the beginning, people thought that our planet Earth is in the center of the Universe, and the Sun, the stars revolve around the Earth. Copernicus, born in 1473, was the first person who proved that the Earth together with other planets of our solar system revolve around the Sun. Continue reading
We present to your attention a fantastic audio recordings of space missions Voyager I and II launched in 1977. These unmanned space probes that are flying for 37 years away from our planet and, according to scientists who have already left our solar system.
During this flight they had studied the planet all around us, the study.
Now about our atmosphere and the sounds of the planets.
As everyone knows, in space there is no sound. Presents the atmosphere of electromagnetic vibrations of the planets, their moons and moons, planetary magnetosphere and the solar wind. Such a complex interaction and created sound vibrations that we can hear. They sound very interesting, sometimes even creepy.

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
