Space tourism

Oddly enough, uzivanjem space now do not state more passionate about the military and scientific programs, and commercial enterprises. Transparent and their goal is to satisfy trivial human curiosity and to make money. In the near future flight into orbit would cost no more than a two-bedroom apartment. And perhaps less,

Commercial space flights to the ISS became a reality in the beginning of the new Millennium. Since 2001, the Federal space Agency jointly with the company Space Adventures has performed eight successful launches, sending into orbit seven people (American billionaire Charles Simonyi has been to space twice). Among already visited the ISS tourists the founder of the famous Cirque Du Soleil, guy laliberté, and in 2014 plans to go into space singer Sarah Brightman (she has become the second female space tourist, and was the first American of Iranian descent the Anusha Ansari). The pleasure of staying at the ISS for cheap, to put it mildly, not true — originally, it treated those wishing to see the space at $ 20 million but since 2007 this figure has grown and has reached $ 40-50 million Not so long ago became known the price of the spacewalk is $ 15 million but so far this “service” exists only in draft form, which will be implemented no earlier than 2015.

The largest planet of the solar system

Saturn through a telescope Saturn Has 22 satellites.Some of them external, some internal. They have names of ancient heroes, for example, Mimas, Enceladus, Pandora, Epimedii, Tethys, dione, Prometheus. The most interesting of them is the Janus – he is the closest to the planet, Titan is the largest satellite in the greatest Solar system in mass and size. The film is about the Saturn, All the moons, except for Phoebe, turning in the forward direction. Uranus Seventh planet from the Sun in the Solar system, so poorly lit.

It has a surface in the form of ice, also covered with strips cracks.Through a telescope it is well visible that plusnet Saturn is stronger than Jupiter. Their origin is still a matter of much controversy.

Some researchers believed that, under the balls of ice, where the water is not frozen, can be a primitive life. Far few places in the Solar system awarded such an assumption. In the future, scientists plan to send to the satellite of the Jupiter drilling rig. However, each planet is similar to the following.About Uranium Uranium is In narrow planetary rings.

Solar system

Solar system. The stars and the sources of their energy. Galaxy

The solar system is called the totality of the heavenly bodies moving around the Sun, which is a dynamic centre of this system. The solar system consists of the Sun and planetary systems, including all the natural space objects that revolve around the Sun. Turn around the Sun, 8 major planets with their satellites and rings: mercury, Venus, Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. They are divided into terrestrial planets similar to Earth, and giant planets similar to Jupiter. These groups are very different in their physical characteristics. To natural space objects in the solar system include dwarf planets and their satellites, and small bodies: asteroids, meteors and meteorites, comets, cosmic dust. Between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter lies the asteroid belt.

The age of the Solar system approximately 4.6 billion years.

The main features of the Solar system .

The planets move around the Sun in orbits close to circular ones. Comets also move in very elongated orbits, when moving near the Sun, the comet forms a tail.

The orbits of all planets lie nearly in the plane of the equator of the Sun. Continue reading
