Comets from the far reaches

Astronomers have determined that comets from the far reaches of our Solar system do not threaten the Earth. The discovery was made after computer modeling of the behavior of these objects. Article researchers appeared in the journal Science . and its summary is contained in the press release of the University of Washington, where the authors of the article.

In their study, the astronomers modeled the penetration into the inner part of the Solar system comets from the Oort cloud – a region whose borders, according to various estimates, are spaced from 2 to 50 thousand astronomical units. The temporal interval was modeled astronomers, was about 1.2 billion years.

Previously, scientists were convinced that the majority of comets with a long period (from 200 to millions of years) period of treatment, currently there are about 3200, with the outer part of the Oort cloud. It was believed that comets from the inner part of the cloud protects the Solar system gravitational field of Saturn and Jupiter, which do not allow these bodies to “annoy” the Earth and other small planets.

Another more famous example of a double-planet pair of Earth-Moon.

The planets Neptune and Uranus correspond to the upper Hochma (Wisdom) and Bina (Analysis).

To illustrate this situation, refer to medical astrology. The position of Neptune in the Zodiac signs tells about the General condition of the organism (strong immunity, weak etc.). Continue reading

Deconflict, intelligent, with sense of humour – with such personal qualities Anastasia Barkhatova became the vanguard of humanity.

Now a graduate student in Microbiology prepares for Mars mission: hone your skills at the station of blood transfusion. Anastasia hopes: that she can win a ticket to Mars at one end.

Anastasia Barkhatova: “For such a task do not mind and life to assume the same for the benefit of mankind. Such a global mission, that fear is just silly”. Continue reading
