Something about Pluto

© Afrim Constantin –

The first to pick up the signals from the probe New Horizons will not be NASA technicians, but experts working at the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC) CSIRO, which then will send the images directly to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). And the company has started the initiative Pluto Time. We, missing very little

The days are numbered for the dark matter?

The correlation between the distributions of ordinary matter, derived from observations of galaxies, and dark matter that agrees with the predictions of cosmological models that take into account the effect on expanding cosmic dark energy. And what emerges from a study published in Physical Review Letters. For dark matter could be really difficult to play

Flowing Ice and Haze – the newest discoveries from NASA’s New Horizons mission

© Afrim Constantin –

Flowing ice and a surprising extended haze are among the newest discoveries from NASA’s New Horizons mission, which reveal distant Pluto to be an icy world of wonders. Now, researchers have discovered that the distant dwarf planet has both flowing ice and a surprising extended haze. “We knew that a mission to Pluto would bring

Another “Earth” has been discovered

It has a diameter a little bigger than the Earth and is to orbit a star similar to the Sun extraordinarily. To complete the picture, the distance between the planet and parent star is the same as that which separates the earth from the sun. The planet was discovered by NASA’s Kepler mission, therefore, it

Cleaning pursue

© Afrim Constantin –

Thanks to detailed observations to X-rays obtained with the telescope NASA space, it has been discovered that the pulsar within the system known under the name B1259 has “cleaned” the disc of the companion star by pushing out a portion of material, which even seems to accelerate as it moves away. The results were published

The eating habits of black holes

© Afrim Constantin –

Astronomers have found a giant black hole with a mass of 100 billion solar masses, was caught red-handed destroying a massive star. This is the first instance that you are quite certain that the object has been recently a “diet of gas”, an important clue that also allows you to understand what kind of “food”

Playing “hide and seek”

The lander cannot communicate with the ESA from July 9th, when he sent the last telemetry. According to the engineers of the DLR (the control center in Germany), Philae may have shifted and the antennas may be hidden. In any case the orbiter is now almost impossible to make contact because of the large amount

Coma cluster – evolution and dark matter

© Afrim Constantin –

Australian researchers have shown for the first time that the capture and storage of Coma cluster have so much dark matter, at least 100 times higher than the ordinary matter, which has protected the visible matter, about 7 billion years ago, by the gravitational effects due to the cluster. And what emerges from a series
