Top 10 Facts about Jupiter

Today, we have listed top 10 facts about Jupiter, that is worth knowing. Jupiter is the largest planet that we know of now. It’s similar to a star, but it never got big enough to start burning. It has big storms like the Great Red Spot, which has been going for hundreds of years. Jupiter also has rings, but they’re too faint to see very well. So there are many facts about Jupiter that is really fascinating, but we distinguished top 10 facts which is the most interesting.

Top 10 Largest Moons In The Solar System

A moon is a natural satellite rotating around a planet. Many people think that the answer to ‘what is the largest moon in the Solar System’ is our Moon. It is not. Our Moon is the fifth largest Moon in the solar system. Let’s explore the moons of the solar system. The below is the top 10 largest moons in the solar system.

NASA IBEX found a tail of Solar system

The Solar system, as well as at comets, has a tail. To such conclusion came the American scientists supporting mission of the automatic device of NASA IBEX. It was brought by National administration of the USA on aeronautics and research of a space (NASA) to Earth orbit in 2008. According to NASA, to such results it was succeeded to come as a result of the complex analysis transferred by NASA IBEX for the first three years of work. The tail of Solar System consists of two streams of quickly moving loaded particles proceeding from our star from above and from below. Also in the tail of Solar System there are two more streams of slowly moving loaded particles on each side. Under NASA certificate, the American experts don’t know precisely, what extent of this loop. With help of the NASA IBEX tools hopes to receive idea of all structure of a heliosphere, and also to establish, where exactly there passes border of a shock wave on which there is a delay of a solar wind. Earlier interplanetary probe of NASA Voyager-1, started 35 years ago, crossed heliosphere border. The device became the artificial object first in the history which has left Solar system.

Two satellites of Pluto received official names

On Jul 02 declared that two satellites of Pluto received official names. In recent years in a dwarfish planet were found earlier unknown two natural satellites. Now the total of satellites of Pluto equals to five. This is Charon, Nikta, the Hydra, the Kerberos and Styx. And, the last two satellites of Pluto were found with help of the wide-angle Wide Field Camera 3 chamber which is established on a space telescope Hubble. The last two satellites were open in 2011 and 2012. After opening they temporarily received P4 and P5 designations. Throughout long time astronomers from the International Astronomical Union didn’t know how to call new satellites of a dwarfish planet Pluto, yet didn’t decide to pick up names for objects of P4 and P5 by public vote. So, yesterday was made the decision to call the last two natural satellites of Pluto with the names Kerberos and Styx.

New data of the solar system from the Voyager 1

The Voyager 1, which is the farthest artificial object in the Solar system, continues to deliver data on space surrounding it. Voyagers began studying of Earth and its vicinities in 1977. In 1979 and 1980 the device Voyager-1 passed by Jupiter and Saturn and went to interstellar space. The second probe Uranium and the Neptune visited and also goes to other stars. The first news that Voyager 1 left the Solar system, started arriving in 2003. At the end of summer of 2012 scientists started talking again that the border of Solar system is very close.

The new twin of our solar system

The Brazilian astronomers reported about opening of the new twin of our solar system. The Brazilian scientists from Rio Grande do Norte University officially reported about opening of almost identical twin of our solar system. The star similar to our Sun is called as CoRot Sol 1. Now our Sun has any more one twin. Gradually scientific opens more and more stars similar to the central star of our Solar System. The solar twin received CoRot Sol 1 designation as it was open with help of the space Corot satellite started on 2006. The star of CoRot Sol 1 is today the most remote Twin of our Sun. Just as our Sun, its’ remote twin is the yellow dwarf. This SP of small stars of the main sequence having weight from 0,8 up to 1,2 weight of the Sun and temperature of a surface 5000-6000 K. According to the name, by results of a photo material they have yellow color; though subjectively their color is perceived by the person as the purest white (hotter stars will be perceived by the person as bluish or blue). The main source of their energy is thermonuclear synthesis of helium from hydrogen.

Life existed long before appearance of the Earth

According to the last statements of scientists, there is a high probability, that life existed long before emergence of the Earth, and, it is quite possible, and even outside our Solar system. Moore’s law says that the numbers of transistors, which take place on a crystal of the integrated scheme, will double each 24 months or two years. According to David Hausa’s forecasts from Intel, doubling of productivity of processors happens each 18 months, and the combination of growth of number of transistors and speed of each separate transistor becomes the reason for that. So, if to apply Moore’s law, and to use it for counting in the opposite direction, we’ll come to conclusion, that we come by 1965 when the first microchip was invented. Now two scientists-geneticists applied Moore’s law to the speed, with which life on Earth develops, developing into more and more difficult forms. As a result results which show were received, that organic life appeared even long before appearance of the Earth. Alexei Sharov from National institute of aging in Baltimore a little differently applied Moore’s law. It replaced transistors with nucleotides (DNA and RNA construction blocks) and made calculations.

The comet C/2012 S1 may be the brightest comet in the solar system

The astronomers from the University of Maryland and Lowell Observatory from the Arizona, are observing the comet C/2012 S1, which may be the brightest comet. For the observation the astronomers are relying on NASA’s Swift satellite to track the comet. The comet will pass near the Sun later this year. By the words of astronomers the approaching will be a dazzling display. The comet C/2012 S1 is supposed to be one of the brightest ever recorder. The astronomers examine the images from Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope, for the making the comet’s initial estimates of the water and dust production. The comet C/2012 S1 can be the brightest comet among all the comets, which the astronomers have noticed during last 50 years in the solar system. The comet gives the chance to astronomers to observe the changes of comet in details and over an extended period. Currently the comet is approaching to the solar system. In the inner solar system the comet will encounter with Mars.

Meteor Storm Caused Migration of Planets

According to a new study, huge gas planets’ migration created the meteor storm, which is the biggest in our solar system’s history.
Our solar system was formed 3.9 billion years ago, which was the result of cosmic tempest. There was a migration of planets, in which the Jupiter and Saturn moved closer to the Sun, but the Neptune and Uranus moved further.
The gravitational effects formed by their migrations. The amount meteors were flung towards the solar system, where they clashed with the terrestrial planets, including the Moon and the Earth.
