Viewings: 3537Venus is traditionally considered to be "hot" planet, because it has the atmosphere of carbon dioxide and the hot surface. However, recently space probe Venus Express has revealed in the upper layers of the Venusian atmosphere is an area where the temperature is from -175 to -73 degrees Celsius. This is very strange, because Venus is much closer to the Sun than Earth.

Representatives of this organization said that by 2022 they are going to launch the spacecraft in a relatively deep space, namely to Jupiter. More precisely, not back to Jupiter, and one of these called Galilean satellites, Ganymede. The head of Roscosmos told that the spacecraft will descend to the surface of Jupiter's moon, and the other space probe will set the beacon on the asteroid Apophis. This asteroid has a high probability of threat to Earth, but because the Federal space Agency wants to monitor its status.

Viewings: 3067The discovery of new satellites orbiting Uranus, forced scientists to return to the study of old problems. They try to understand whether the system of this gas giant stable - and how likely collision with each other. What can happen as a result of such a cosmic accident? There are a number of alternative versions.

Viewings: 3125Gas giant Jupiter is not among the hottest of the planets of the Solar system. However, in a few billion years, the picture could change dramatically, American astrophysicists believe the Nikko Madhusudhan and David Spiegel. Jupiter close to the Sun and heated up to enormous temperatures. However, the Land that time, most likely, will disappear.

Effects of prolonged exposure lunar conditions on the people still have not been studied in depth, and it is possible that in fact the Moon can be toxic to people.

Perhaps it is there now under the orange atmosphere and under thick ice crust, in the depths of the cold waters emerging life?

Viewings: 3770Water - the cradle of life. Its properties are striking biologists and biophysicists, and their study is rapidly developing in our time. But for the average person consumption of water is urgently needed. Therefore, in the study of planets and small bodies in the Solar system, scientists are primarily interested in: there is very necessary for life stuff?

Data obtained with robotic probes, told the researchers that the solar wind flows around the moon and interacts with it completely wrong, as with Land, because she, unlike our planet, does not have its own magnetic field. But it absolutely will not stop...
