Viewings: 6178Recently astrophysics, watching the red supergiant Betelgeuse, found around it a few dust arcs. Most likely, it traces emissions of material at different stages of the evolution of stars. In addition, it was found oblong object whose nature is as yet unclear. However, it is clear that the star could face him over 12 million years.
Viewings: 5687Recently astrophysics proposed a new original method for detecting exoplanets - they should seek the polar lights! The fact that they generate not only electromagnetic waves of the visible range, but also radio waves that are relatively easy to catch because they are well distributed and carry the information about detection processes.
Viewings: 6208Real Wallis - region of Mars, structure similar to the trace from the river channel, which took the spacecraft "Mars-Express". Scientists believe that this structure was formed thanks to the moving stream of water in the distant past of the red planet.
Viewings: 6013The moon has a unique visual property, which is that, looking at it from below, it seems to be less than when it is on the horizon. Previously, most scientists assumed that this phenomenon occurs on the basis of the theory of relative size, which is called "the illusion of Ebbinghaus".

Viewings: 6210We flies another comet, capable to become the brightest in 21 Vetka writes Space Weather, just over a month left until the moment when the comet PanSTARRS will cross the orbit of mercury and will probably become so bright that will be visible to the naked eye. Star observers around the world will be looking for it in the sky at sunset in early March, when the space wanderer will be closest to the Sun and the Earth. Before the observers will need a telescope, you can review the images obtained in Argentina, under the leadership of Martin Maseca. The team used a remote-controlled telescope F(/Ph)otometric Robotic Atmospheric Monitor - abbreviated as "FRAM”.

In connection with what astronomers and joined them mathematics insist that only in the milky way - that is our galaxy have to be thousands and even tens of thousands of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. And as in the rest of the Universe - there are innumerable.

The task they were able to perform with the help of a telescope, provided by the Australian Government Association of scientific and applied research CSIRO.
