American newspaper The New York Times published a sensational: on the moon found the skeleton of a man .This stunning news does not look like an ordinary newspaper "duck" as a solid body refers to a recognized authority - leading Chinese astrophysicist Mao Kahn.
And reject this scientist with the threshold can not: namely Mao Kang winter of 1988 brought a shock to the whole scientific world by publishing a conference in Beijing on human photos bare foot on the lunar surface.And said here that got these shots from "a reliable source in the United States."
According to Mao Kahn snapshot of the skeleton - of the second batch of photos obtained from the same source, wrote proxfiles.ru.
On the technical side there is nothing impossible.Modern optics is such that clearly captures from orbiting satellites headlines, spread out on the ground.And on the moon has no atmosphere, can be read newspaper text.The only question is whether or not to walk on the moon, a man who then died and turned into a skeleton, and why the Americans are holding the photographs in no hurry to share them with the scientific world.
In the second half of the question to answer easily.Cosmos - a strategic area, and whoever owns it secret - more potential adversaries.Not for nothing the Americans nearly half a century conceal the truth about the alien spaceship who died in South America.Much harder to answer the first half of the question.But let's look at the not so distant past.
Asteroid mass of 25 million tonnes could collapse at our planet in 2036.Scientists have developed a program to build bases on the Moon.
Moscow, February 2.In 2029 in the vicinity of our planet will rush a giant asteroid.For several years, leading scientists around the world investigating its trajectory, the impact on our planet and the possible consequences of finding new solutions to prevent a possible catastrophe.
NASA researchers physics professor Gregory Metlof told Science Daily , that "the encounter with the object of such size that moves at a speed of about 50,000 kilometers per hour - it's a disaster.In his opinion, necessary or destroy the object or change its trajectory. "
Managing such an object - the only right decision in this case, said the professor, who has the best data and technology in this field.The researchers believe that the attempt to destroy the object of such a mass would lead to an even greater problem - the Earth can envelop the radioactive field generated by the explosion products.
In the classification of NASA's Near Earth Objects are comets and asteroids that are in relative proximity to Earth.Impact on their orbit has a gravitational attraction of nearby planets.An asteroid or minor planet, named Apophis (Apophis) in honor of the ancient Egyptian god of darkness and emptiness.
By tradition, the small planet called names such as Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods.There is a version, and that scientists discovered the asteroid, named him after a character from the TV series "Stargate".Size of space rock is about 270 meters in diameter, and weight - at least 25 million tons.According to the calculations, it must twice pass close to Earth at a distance of less than 40 thousand kilometers.
The asteroid Apophis was discovered in 2004.The researchers repeatedly changed the degree of probability that a collision between Earth and an asteroid will occur.However, there remains the possibility that in 2029, during close passage near the planet, Apophis will pass along a trajectory that will set the conditions for the effects in 2036.
The trajectory of the asteroid Apophis in relation to our planet
Passage of Apophis to Earth orbit
Calculate the force of impact from the passage of the asteroid at a distance - not an easy task.For this purpose, data from different points of the planet.Then calculated the moment of closest approach time for an asteroid with Earth.
Such a method has been calculated the exact date of the passage of Apophis in the near to the planet at the point - April 13, 2029.It can change its trajectory so that seven years later, in 2036, he still faces the Earth.If this happens, the impact force of 68,000 times the power of the explosion of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima.
The development of Professor Gregory Metlofa is that the asteroid should be dismissed from the course by heating the surface to create a jet stream, which will change its trajectory.Will be used for heating, including solar energy, guided by an asteroid with a special installation - it is already under development by scientists at NASA.
In the Russian space center Khrunichev developed a program of the Moon, reports MIGnews .It covers the period from 2025 to 2037: during these 12 years, plans to build an orbiting space station in lunar orbit, and subsequently - the construction of a permanent base on the lunar surface.To create a permanent base is the use of the resources of the moon on an industrial scale.
MOSCOW, June 5 - RIA Novosti.Magnetic storm began on Earth on Sunday night - Kp index of geomagnetic disturbances to date has reached 6, one more than the minimum value, which is considered by the storm, according to data center space weather forecast of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
"This is normal, the sun continues to move to a new high activity, now it is observed from 5 to 10 active regions.
June 1 was a coronal mass ejection, then another, and now ejection of solar plasma reached the Earth, "- said the director of the Center forecasts of space weather the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation (IZMIRAN) Sergey Gaidash.
"In the next two days we have" secured "perturbed situation" - he added.
The level of magnetic disturbances has reached a "red zone" around 00.30 MSK on Sunday.Currently recalculated every three hours the index Kp, characterizing the geomagnetic activity, reached a value of 6.In this scale, there are 10 levels ranging from 0 to 3 correspond to the quiet magnetosphere level 4 - perturbed, and levels 5 through 9 - magnetic storms five classes.
Perturbations in the Earth's magnetosphere - the magnetic storms - arise under the action of streams of solar plasma, charged particles emitted Sun.Particle, the "hits" on the magnetosphere, forcing it to vibrate, which can cause disruptions in radio communications
