[Translation] the Story of the supernova of fireworks in our Galaxy!

When I convinced myself that no star of this type has not previously been shining, I was in such perplexity because of the incident that began to doubt in their own eyes.

You are on the planet?

Talking about flying to other stars, it should be understood that the actual stars do not need us – we need to other planets, preferably earth-like and habitable. And how do you know whether the neighboring stars on the planet? It would seem simple to grab a bigger telescope, and look. If a distant galaxy can be considered, then of nearby stars should see the planets and the satellites. But there is a “small” complexity: unlike stars and galaxies, planets virtually no Shine yourself but only reflect the light of their stars. The star illuminates its surroundings, and therefore, despite the development of astronomical techniques in the twentieth century, the first exoplanet – a planet from another star is found less than thirty years ago.

Turns out my hypothesis is true: the comet breakdown exists.


So…. Oh… it means a lot.

Why Hubble sees Pluto, but did not see “Apollo”?

Often the question when it comes to modern astronomical possibilities, in the debate about the men landing on the moon. Many impressive colorful shots from the Hubble telescope of distant galaxies and planets on the outskirts of the Solar system, and it seems really on the moon-then we might as well all be considered.

Star with “megastructures” in orbit: still it is not the comet

The star KIC 8462852, fluctuations in brightness which are previously explained in its orbit a huge cloud of comets, again presented astronomers a surprise. It turned out that its brightness over time drops considerably – this was established by studying historical photographs of the sky in the last hundred years. Scientists disprove the comet version, but don’t know what to offer in return.
