NASA astronomers have long looked for extrasolar planets outside the solar system and, to date, have been able to find dozens of planets on which there quite acceptable conditions for life. Our star system is quite unusual, and startling in its universe, and that’s the latest finding, which was the code name for HD 188 753 Ab, simply hit the U.S. space agency scientists. It is a planet where the local inhabitants, if they are of course, can watch the sunset triple that for sure is just a spectacular show.
Dr. Masiezh Konatski University of California in Pasadena, said that he had discovered a planet with the Keck in Hawaii. Modern ideas of star systems have not allowed the existence of planets in such "problematic" stellar systems consisting of just three suns. Famous astronomers confirmed the discovery by NASA HD 188 753 Ab, which opens a new chapter in the development of astronomy and astrophysics in general. Representatives of the UFO, which may visit us, at home can enjoy the sunset and enjoy a triple at the same time quite acceptable living conditions. Systems of multiple stars are widespread in the cosmos, and therefore this finding increases the chances of finding the answer to the question are we alone in the universe.
AP reports that NASA representatives have suggested that the Earth once again in danger from outer space, where a in 2029 could fatally encounter a planet with a large asteroid, who was named 2004 MN4.
Probability cosmic catastrophe, according to the calculations, is approximately 1 to 300. But since this asteroid is still quite far away and still poorly understood, these data can not be considered final. It is likely that later, during a thorough investigation and calculation of the chance of collision greatly reduced.
Although it is not too high a probability of doomsday, the astronomers calculated the possible date of potential collision – April 13, 2029 gogda.
If it still happens, it could happen on Earth as a huge failure on the continents and a giant tsunami. The diameter of the asteroid 2004 MN4, according to the ideas of astronomers is about 396 meters, and energy, which can be released in the collision, estimated by them at 1600 Mt.
If you had no small celestial body in accordance with the scale of Turin, in which scientists evaluate its potential danger to the planet, did not get estimates over a single score, then the Asteroid received as much as two out of 10 .
The very scale of assessment risk of an asteroid to Earth become the official tool for astronomers in 1999. On her new-found each of the solar system small celestial body, after assessing its size and weight, speed and potential probabilities of collision with our planet, gets his point.
As soon for the asteroid will be to direct observation of the observatories in the plans of the scientists of his detailed and careful study.
Not just once or twice NASA said there was no evidence of extraterrestrial life, fooling ordinary citizens. Given the possibility of an American organization for space research, to hope that someone else will open the truth about our neighbors, it would be frivolous and unwarranted. The American government knows how to hide the truth from their fellow citizens without allowing gaps in information leak for decades. NASA issues a small portion of sometimes contradictory evidence about the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life forms on schedule, and only when the public starts to ask too many questions.
Print a minimum of useless information, so to speak even to feed than to distract from the really serious issues thoughtful step. NASA continues to use the naivete of people who believe shoyu organization only source of reliable information. The last week is no exception. The press has carried numerous statements by U.S. officials and experts from NASA’s contacts with the UFO and aliens, as well as promise in the near future to host the conference, which will shed light on many issues that we are so interested. Ordinary course of politicians from the neighboring continent? Get your piece of information about extraterrestrial intelligence, and not distract us from our projects?
Of all the flow totally useless information, poured on us for the last month, surely it is worth noting the report astrobiologists NASA, who discovered a strange and uncharacteristic living organism on Earth, namely the bacteria at the bottom of Mono Lake , California. Mysterious organism once called "the immortals", because it can exist in arsenic environment. Until now it was believed that all living organisms, arsenic is considered the world with poison, but the latter is very easy living in this environment. According to scientists, the immortal bacteria were from space on our planet long before the appearance of man upon it. Aliens among us, or this is another attempt to feed us information about the next cheap extremophiles to keep silent about the more important discoveries?

Office of the US Air Force announced the successful launch of unmanned air vehicle next generation X-37B. We are talking about a secret project, the US Department of Defense, the development of which took place since the late 90s.
X-37B was designed NASA, but due to lack of appropriations, or for whatever else, an unknown reason, was transferred to the Office of the US Air Force. According to our assumptions, bezpilotny flying machine is very interested in the military, because using it may implement strategic projects in space, to realize that had not previously been possible.
Based on materials Space.com, the officially published data of a miniature spaceship referred to some of its characteristics. For example, its weight is only 11,000 pounds (5 tons), with a length of about 7 meters. One of the main structural features of the ship's hull is a double tail blades. The initial draft suggested the possibility of finding the device in orbit for 270 days, but it was decided to limit the pilot to the flight.
Unmanned space "">> Shuttle"could accommodate a few satellites, weighing several hundred kilograms, as well as, theoretically, some modern weapons. Given that the original draft laid placement on the unit X-37B solar panels bezpilotnik may be present in Earth's orbit is almost unlimited time. We're talking about a possible configuration, since no such information, nor the exact purpose of the military draft were not disclosed. The spacecraft is the most secretive Department of Defense, which gives plenty of opportunities for reflection.Some media speculated that the main tasks of the newest aircraft tactical destruction of ballistic missiles and satellites predolagaemogo enemy. Representatives of the Air Force, however, claim only to test the latest satellite systems and other "peace" of equipment and components of space systems.
Every day on our planet disappears approximately 40,000 km2 of ice. In this regard, climatologists forecast for the current year is very disappointing: the global surface temperature may soon reach and exceed the maximum temperature record in 2005. And the expected 1914 hurricane over the Atlantic will be the most unpredictable consequences for the planet.
Although, according to scientists’ predictions, somewhere near the asteroid fly who dreams to destroy the Earth, soon to be come a time of terrible diseases, and the Third World War, and the Mayan calendar ends, but that mankind was not enough. Another frightening fact recently released the world’s climatologists.
Climate experts predict that the Earth in 2010 for being the hottest in the history of homo sapiens. In addition, the year will bring inevitable destruction, scientists say.
As reported last week, climatologists from the US National Data Center for the study of snow and ice, the level of Arctic sea ice fell to a record low for this time of year. Every day, disappears about 40,000 km2 of ice. The last time almost as rapidly thawed it in 2007.
Researchers at the Polar Science Center at the University of Washington does not add optimism: according to their information, the volume of sea ice in March 2010 was 38 percent less than in 1979, when scientists began recording data of melting glaciers.
Dismal forecasts give and specialists NASA, who are my observations using satellites. According to a leading climatologist James Hansen, the global surface temperature may soon reach the maximum possible to the 2012.
In the document, which was presented in the journal Geophysical Review, Hansen and his colleagues argue that the Earth for the past 12 months has warmed by 0.65 degrees compared with the period from 1951 to 1980, and that global temperatures this year will exceed the figures of 2005, when last observed temperature record.
Thus, the data leading climate scientists refute the opinion of some scientists that global warming in the near future.
Experts believe that over the Atlantic this season because of high temperatures to which warms the earth and the sea surface, we can expect up to 23 powerful storms, 14 of them are able to turn into hurricanes. Hurricane season promises to be the most destructive in the past few years.
The results of investigations of foreign colleagues with a reporter PRAVDA.Ru ‘discussed researcher at the Department of Meteorology and Climatology, Moscow State University, Ph.D. in Geography Paul paths:
"Despite the huge leaps of scientific progress, people are still very vulnerable the forces of nature. Earth’s population is huge, with much of it lives in high places with a natural point of view of risk.
In that case, if there is catastrophic climate change, as major threats appear shortage of water, food, and strategic resources (not least – of oil). It is easy to foresee developments, because such a situation creates a suitable soil for wars.
If the alarming speculation become reality, on globalization in the form in which we now have it, you can safely put a cross. When the globe dramatically changed climatic conditions also change and the idea of?? The real well-being. "
