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

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

The largest planet

Astronomical parameters

The largest planet of the Solar System, the third brightest object night sky (after the moon and Venus). Is gazaille body, hard surface does not. Consists mostly of hydrogen and helium. Due to their size can be observed with the naked eye as a star of the first magnitude, but only for a short time in the morning or in the evening. The average distance from the Sun 778 million km conversion – 314.8 years 11 days.

Jupiter has 16 satellites: IO, Leda, Teba(Phoebe), Carme, ELARA, Ananke, Europe, Metis, Pasiphae, Sinope, hamalia, Ganymede, Lysithea, Amalthea, Callisto, and Andrastea. System his companions like a scaled-down model of the Solar system. The four major satellites (Ganymede, Callisto, IO and Europa) discovered by Galileo and are called the Galilean. Continue reading
