The methodology of extra-curricular activities

“History of cosmonautics”

Goal . formation of knowledge about the history of space exploration.

Learning objectives:

Secondary . formation of concepts:

– theoretical and practical assumptions kosmonavtiki research;

– the relation of the space with natural-mathematical Sciences and engineering;

– about the space: space craft (SPACECRAFT), launch vehicles (LV), artificial Earth satellites (AES); spacecraft (SC), orbital stations (OS), automatic interplanetary stations (AWS);

– about the history of space research in Russia and abroad.

Educational . formation of scientific Outlook of pupils in the course of exploring the history of human knowledge. Patriotic education while getting acquainted with the outstanding role of Russian science and technology in space development. Polytechnic education and labour upbringing in presenting information on the practical application of space exploration. Continue reading

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
