An artist's impression of J1407b viewed from a moon. 1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6 (often abbreviated 1SWASP J140747 or J1407) is a star similar to the Sun located in the constellation of Centaurus at a distance of about 420 light years from Earth.

1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6

A relatively young star, its age is estimated to be 16 million years, and its mass is about 90% that of the Sun's.[1][4] The star has an apparent magnitude of 12.3 and requires a telescope to be seen.[2] The star's name comes from the SuperWASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) program and the stars RA/Dec. J1407 is probably orbited by at least one known body, 1SWASP J1407b[5] (J1407b), thought to be either a large gas giant planet or a brown dwarf with an immense ring system.[1][3][6] 1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6 b[edit] J1407b is the first exoplanet or brown dwarf discovered with a ring system by the transit method.

From Earth's point of view, the ring system appears about 3.7 milliarcseconds across. j1407_exorings [Matthew Kenworthy] The Star J1407 is a 0.9 Solar mass, 16 million year old star that is part of the Sco-Cen OB Association.

Due to its youth, it is slightly hotter and brighter than you would expect for a nearly Solar mass star - it will eventually settle down onto the Main Sequence near the Sun's present position. The star is about 133 parsecs away in the Southern hemisphere, and is a 12th magnitude star. Most of the time, it has an almost constant brightness.

Dreadnaught: 12 Minutes of Gorgeous, Direct-Feed Space Battles - PAX South 2015. Rings of Saturn. The full set of rings, imaged as Saturn eclipsed the Sun from the vantage of the Cassini orbiter, 1,200,000 km (746,000 mi) distant, on 19 July 2013 (brightness is exaggerated).

Rings of Saturn

Earth appears as a dot at 4 o'clock, between the G and E rings. Simulated image using color to present radio-occultation-derived particle size data. The attenuation of 0.94-, 3.6-, and 13-centimeter signals sent by Cassini through the rings to Earth shows abundance of particles of sizes similar to or larger than those wavelengths. Purple (B, inner A Ring) means few particles are < 5 cm (all signals similarly attenuated). Green and blue (C, outer A Ring) mean particles < 5 cm and < 1 cm, respectively, are common. The rings have numerous gaps where particle density drops sharply: two opened by known moons embedded within them, and many others at locations of known destabilizing orbital resonances with Saturn's moons.

History[edit] Galileo's work[edit] Galileo first observed the rings in 1610. RymdResa on Steam. Story:RymdResa (Rimmed-ray-sah - Swedish for Space Travel) is described as a procedurally generated space odyssey.

Siddhartha Barnhoorn

My aim with this album was to create a collection of evolving, spacial ambient pieces and to structure those into a coherent, organic musical experience. The album touches upon themes like space and time, dynamics and silence, darkness and light with hints of mysticism. Aiming to express a sense of timelessness in the music. 25 Strangest Things Found In Outer Space. Neutron star. Simulated view of a neutron star.

Neutron star

Due to its strong gravity, the background is gravitationally lensed, making it appear distorted. A neutron star is the collapsed core of a giant star which before collapse had a total mass of between 10 and 29 solar masses. Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars, excluding black holes, hypothetical white holes, quark stars and strange stars.[1] Neutron stars have a radius on the order of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) and a mass of about 1.4 solar masses.[2] They result from the supernova explosion of a massive star, combined with gravitational collapse, that compresses the core past white dwarf star density to that of atomic nuclei.

Black Holes and other Cosmic Monsters - The Universe Documentary - Full HD. Researchers show that silicon can reproduce physical phenomena exploited by high-end telecommunications devices. The Semiconductor Industry Association has estimated that at current rates of increase, computers' energy requirements will exceed the world's total power output by 2040.

Researchers show that silicon can reproduce physical phenomena exploited by high-end telecommunications devices

Using light rather than electricity to move data would dramatically reduce computer chips' energy consumption, and the past 20 years have seen remarkable progress in the development of silicon photonics, or optical devices that are made from silicon so they can easily be integrated with electronics on silicon chips.

But existing silicon-photonic devices rely on different physical mechanisms than the high-end optoelectronic components in telecommunications networks do. The telecom devices exploit so-called second-order nonlinearities, which make optical signal processing more efficient and reliable. In the latest issue of Nature Photonics, MIT researchers present a practical way to introduce second-order nonlinearities into silicon photonics. Dopey solutions Picking up speed. Alien particles from outer space are wreaking low-grade havoc on personal electronic devices.

Physicists have detected a friction-like force in a perfect vacuum. One of the most fundamental tenets of modern physics is that in a perfect vacuum - a place entirely devoid of matter - no friction can possibly exist, because empty space cannot exert a force on objects travelling through it.

But despite the conventional wisdom, physicists in the UK discovered that a decaying atom travelling through a complete vacuum would experience a friction-like force, and now they've figured out how this reinforces - rather than breaks - Einstein's theory of general relativity. "We spent ages searching for the mistake in the calculation and spent even more time exploring other strange effects until we found this (rather simple) solution," one of the team, Matthias Sonnleitner from the University of Glasgow told Lisa Zyga at


Ionizing radiation - Wikipedia. Radiation that carries enough light energy to liberate electrons from atoms or molecules Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation that carries sufficient energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing them. Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and electromagnetic waves on the high-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum. Typical ionizing subatomic particles found in radioactive decay include alpha particles, beta particles and neutrons. Radiation sickness Symptoms. The severity of signs and symptoms of radiation sickness depends on how much radiation you've absorbed. How much you absorb depends on the strength of the radiated energy and the distance between you and the source of radiation.

Signs and symptoms also are affected by the type of exposure — such as total or partial body and whether contamination is internal or external — and how sensitive to radiation the affected tissue is. For instance, the gastrointestinal system and bone marrow are highly sensitive to radiation. Solar particle event - Wikipedia. A Solar Flare, image taken by the TRACE satellite (photo by NASA) A solar proton event (SPE), or "proton storm", occurs when particles (mostly protons) emitted by the Sun become accelerated either close to the Sun during a flare or in interplanetary space by CME shocks. The events can include other nuclei such as helium ions and HZE ions. These particles cause multiple effects. They can penetrate the Earth's magnetic field and cause ionization in the ionosphere.

The effect is similar to auroral events, except that protons rather than electrons are involved. Diacritice (ăâîşţ) - transformă automat în text cu diacritice!
