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.

Disagreement Regarding the Location of NASAs’ Spacecraft Voyager 1

Though, the American Geophysical Union reported that the spacecraft Voyager 1 was outside the heliosphere,but the NASA don’t agree with this report. By the words of team of Voyager 1, the spacecraft has not left the solar system yet, or it reached to interstellar space. The AGU, did the measurement at AUG. 25. These measurements showed radical changes, which meant that the spacecraft had left the solar system, or the huge magnetic bubble including our solar system, and the entire magnetic field. There is some disagreement between the astronomer Bill Webber (professor from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces) and the Voyager project scientist Ed Stone regarding the location of Voyager 1. Bill Webber explained, that during a few days decreased the intensity of heliospheric radiation, and the cosmic ray intensity went up. But Ed Stone explained that the spacecraft had reached to a new region, named “the magnetic highway”, where changed the energetic particles.

Spacecraft Vojager 1 is Outside of the Heliosphere

The spacecraft of NASA Voyager 1, is the most far object from the Earth. The Voyager 1 is the fastest spacecraft, which the people have ever created. In 35 years after start an automatic probe “Voyager-1” recorded strong change in intensity of quickly moving loaded particles called by space beams, which allowed to draw a conclusion of the device, which could cross heliosphere border. The heliosphere is a solar systems’ border. Beyond the limits of interstellar space, there must be parts, which will be independent from the loaded parts and from a magnetic field . The scientist Bill Vebber think, that everything speaks well that the Voyager-1 left the region depending on influence of the sun, its data show such characteristics of hydrogen and helium which can be observed in the interstellar environment.

Solar System nearest Star Systems

It seems that astronomers may have new chance to search exoplanets. The new star system, which was discovered 1917 and approximately 6.5 light years away from our solar system, is the third nearest to our solar system. The new stars are brown dwarfs- cool, dim objects. The pair of stars has chemical properties and high temperature. This kind of objects, often, referred as a “failed stars”. This “failed stars” doesn’t have enough mass for crushing by gravity, which would allow the thermonuclear reactions to ignite the hydrogen. The astronomer from the Penn State University Kevin Luhman, during the studying a map of the sky, which obtained from NASA’s satellite, discovered, that one of the stars has a rapid motion. The astronomer extrapolated the movement of star back in time and discovered, that it was really captured.
