In the current representation all black holes can be divided conditionally into "strong" and "weak". The first are huge, attract the mass of substance which turns around them and forms a bright accretionary disk. The second, on the contrary, are too small and weak for it, and therefore near them
The staff of NASA published the unique star video atlas on which more than 4000 exoplanets opened by astronomers from the different countries of the world since October, 1991, in many respects thanks to the Kepler and TESS telescopes are represented. The video atlas is submitted in a sound and
NASA signed the contract with the Californian company Made In Space for the sum of 73.3 million dollars for start of the demonstration Archinaut One spaceship which will make and collect components of satellites directly in an orbit. Still, despite the growing power of carrier rockets, their
The large planet can sometimes attract to itself the asteroid which is flying by by, and that becomes its satellite. But usually, on the accepted model, satellites are formed of a cloud of dust and stones together with growth of the planet. Such combination — scientists found actively
Astronomers are ready to declare allocation of a new class of stars as the latest discoveries showed that objects of such look is already found quite a lot. It is about "stars zombies" or supernew type 1a for which the international team of scientists purposefully hunted. And they were lucky
Last Friday the Chinese space station Tyangun-2 was taken out of service then it is flooded in the accelerated mode in the remote region of the Pacific Ocean, better known as "the cemetery of spaceships". There is no station any more, but millions of users of YouTube where the state Chinese global
On July 22 from the spaceport of the Space center of Satish Dkhavan (the island of Shrikharikota, the State of Andhra Pradesh) carrier rocket MkIII-M1 with automatic interplanetary station Chandrayan-2 which will deliver the landing Vikram module and the research rover Pragyan to the surface of the
Galaxies in the Universe are located not chaotically, and in the form of congestions which are connected among themselves by thin locks of matter. Between these congestions there is what is called extragalactic emptiness – huge spaces without any objects. In the 1987th it became clear that our

The Hubble space telescope studied features of the exoplanet of WASP-121b which intrigue the fourth year scientists. At the time of opening in the 2015th about the planet was only its belonging to a class of "hot Floodlights" – gas giants with the heated atmosphere is known. But now the new,
Astronomers from the Australian National university found in 35,000 light years from Earth a star which can be considered the oldest of known to us. At an object with SMSS J160540.18-144323.1 index the small content of iron is insignificant, approximately in 1.5 million times it is less that in
