The largest planet in the Universe

Only on our channel we Represent your attention the biggest planet of the solar system. And let’s talk about Jupiter in more detail

The largest planet —- (0012) —- the Size of Jupiter —-

Jupiter is the biggest and the heaviest planet in the Solar system located far beyond the main asteroid belt.

According to modern concepts, the sun and the planets formed from a common dust cloud. The share accounted for 23 of Jupiter mass of the total mass of the planets of the Solar system. Its mass is 2.5 times greater than the mass of all the combined planets of our Solar system. Where the planet consists of hydrogen, methane and ammonia.

Jupiter is so thin that its density is 1.33 gcm3, which is four times less than the density of the Earth.

The acceleration of gravity at the level of the cloud surface of Jupiter is g = 2,53 g.

This planet has a powerful magnetic field, about 67 satellites of the ring. Continue reading

Meteoroids

Meteors

It has long been observed that the nuclei of periodic comets are depleted, with every turn they glow weaker. Not once was there a division of cometary nuclei into two parts or more. This destruction produced or solar tides, or collisions with a meteor shower. The comet, discovered by the Czech scientists Bilim (Biloy) in 1772 was observed with repeated returns with the seven-year period. In 1846 its core collapsed, and it turned into two weak comets, which after 1852 was not observed. When in 1872, according to the calculations, the missing comet should pass near the Earth, there was rain of “falling stars”. Since November 27 this phenomenon is repeated every year, though less effectively. Small solid particles of the disintegrated nucleus of a former comet Bilogo stretched along its orbit, and when the Earth crosses the stream, they fly in the atmosphere and evaporate. A number of other meteor showers.

Meteoroids — the remains of comets, visible only at the time of evaporation are called meteors. The width of meteor showers is much greater than the size of the generated nuclei.

Photographing the path of the same meteor in the starry sky, as he is projected to observers, separated from each other by 20-30 km, determine the altitude at which the meteor appeared. Most meteoroids begin to glow at heights of 100 to 120 km and has already completely evaporated at a height of 80 km . Continue reading
