Ovni du net - Les meilleurs videos d'ovni du net Le Soleil Le Soleil fait partie d'un système stellaire d'environ 140 milliards d'étoiles : la Voie lactée, notre Galaxie. La plupart sont concentrées dans une région en forme de disque délimitée par des bras qui se répartissent en spirale à partir d'un noyau central. Le Soleil occupe une position périphérique à 28 000 années-lumière du centre, autour duquel il tourne à une vitesse de 225 km/s. Il effectue une révolution en 250 millions années. Le Soleil est seul et n'appartient pas à un système binaire. Il est l'étoile centrale de notre système planétaire, autour duquel tournent, dans l'état actuel de nos connaissances, 8 planètes, 5 planètes naines et des millions d'astéroïdes. Le Soleil est l'objet le plus gros du Système Solaire. Aujourd'hui, la composition chimique du Soleil est de 75% d'hydrogène et 25% d'hélium en masse (92.1% d'hydrogène et 7.8% d'hélium en nombre d'atomes) ; il contient également quelques métaux (0.1%). Cet astre est d'une grande importance pour l'homme et sa vie. Tags

If you approach the changes gradually and with commitment, you will have a healthy diet sooner than you think. Simplify. Think of water and exercise as food groups in your diet. Water. Exercise. Healthy eating tip 2: Moderation is key People often think of healthy eating as an all or nothing proposition, but a key foundation for any healthy diet is moderation. For most of us, moderation or balance means eating less than we do now. Try not to think of certain foods as “off-limits.” Healthy eating tip 3: It's not just what you eat, it's how you eat Healthy eating is about more than the food on your plate—it is also about how you think about food. Eat with others whenever possible. Healthy eating tip 4: Fill up on colorful fruits and vegetables Fruits and vegetables are the foundation of a healthy diet.

20 Clever Ads on Buildings EmailEmail Some time ago I was walking by an office building, looked up and saw a huge sign on it: “Affection”. As it turned out, it was the name of an IT company that was renting some office space in that building. However, from a mere mortal’s point of view, it seemed that the whole building belonged to them. I thought to myself, “if a plain logo can have such a strong impact when placed on a building, what would happen if somebody put some creativity in it”. After doing a little research we’ve come up with 20 of the most creative advertisements on building , now the only question is, how come I never run into anything like that in the real life?

P.G.J. - L' ASTRONOMIE, une Passion à Partager Département d'Astrophysique Découvrir les projets de nos laboratoires Explorer nos instruments de recherche Modéliser l'univers et ses phénomènes Archiver et gérer les connaissances ALMA saisit une planète en pleine formation À l'aide du réseau de radiotélescopes ALMA, une équipe d'astronomes chiliens a observé pour la première fois une jeune planète en train d'aspirer de la matière pour se former. La scène se déroule autour de l'étoile HD 142527, à 450 années-lumière, dans la constellation australe du Loup. La jeune étoile est encore entourée d'un disque de gaz et de poussière, vestige de la nébuleuse qui lui a donné naissance. Mais ce disque est divisé en deux : une partie proche de l'étoile et une autre plus lointaine, située à environ 30 unités astronomiques (la distance qui sépare le Soleil de Neptune). Entre les deux, les astronomes observaient un vide qu'ils soupçonnaient avoir été creusé par des planètes en formation. Pour Simon Casassus, de l'Universidad de Chile, qui dirige l'équipe : « Les astronomes avaient prédit l'existence de ces écoulements, mais c'est la première fois que nous avons pu les observer. » Une belle confirmation des théories en vigueur.
