Jupiter, the giant planet, roamed toward the center of the solar system and back out again, at one point moving in about as close as Mars is now.New details, which are based on a new model of the early solar system developed by an international team that includes NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt
High-speed international trains,which runs between linking Paris and Amsterdam, the first in Europe use electricity generated by solar panels.The 3.6-kilometer tunnel crossing Antwerp, in northern Belgium, is fitted with 16,000 solar panels covering 50,000 square meters. The panels produce 3,300 megawatts of electricity per hour.According to Steven De Tollenaere, head of project developers Enfinity, during use electricity, the energy losses and transport costs are excluded.
The VLT Survey Telescope (VST), which is the latest addition to the European Southern Observatory’s network of telescopes at Paranal in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, take its first images.The image shows the spectacular star-forming region Messier 17, which is also known as the Omega Nebula or the Swan Nebula, as it has never been seen before
Scientists at the Research Centre NASA had the opportunity to study a mysterious substance that hides from us the most distant parts of the universe.Astronomers suspect that one of the carbon-containing compounds, called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), may cause absorption of light at several wavelengths.
Irish astronomers have discovered a new asteroid 2010-SO16, which revolves around the Earth at a distance of 19 million miles away. According to scientists, the object with a diameter of 400 miles could be formed 4.4 million years ago, during the collision of Earth with a huge celestial body
Astrophysics at Oxford University reconstructed the collision of galaxies, which led to the emergence of system Arp 147, located about four hundred and thirty million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Cetus.System Arp 147 is a “Galactic Pair, consisting of two objects ring-shaped and elliptical galaxies.
In the laboratory of University Cornell (USA), which engaged in nanotechnology, has been made guitar, which size is only 10 microns.Unlike the previous model, which was made in 1997, this guitar can play, because it has six strings, and as a mediator can use laser
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft viewed Coronal mass ejection on June 7, 2011. This event registered as a Class M-2 solar flare, which is a medium-class sun storm that should not be a danger to satellites or infrastructure on Earth.The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) observed the flare’s peak at 1:41a.m
Experts from Pixel Qi, a company that specializes in displays with low power consumption, have decided to develop a solar panel which could easily provide power portable gadgets. The company recently introduced its latest system at Computex 2011.The system is designed for installation on Tablet PCs to help them run entirely on solar energy.
