Earth's velocity swings

One of the most characteristic signs of cosmic phenomena is correct repeatability, cyclicity. For example, the rotation of the Earth around its axis and the Sun. But, for astronomers for a long time is not a secret, that the duration of the earthly day is gradually increasing. Then, why are there such Earth's velocity swings? For example, it is estimated...

The infinite universe

With the development of the capabilities of modern astronomy is increasingly a question: Is there the infinite universe? To answer this question, let us take the theory of relativity, where the space and the time are treated as a single entity, the so-called "space - time", in which the time coordinate plays an equally important role that space...

Neutrino astronomy

Neutrino astronomy is related to the discovery and study of special nuclear particles - neutrinos. This particle is very small, has a negligible mass and no electric charge. Thanks to its properties of neutrinos can quite freely pass through giant column material. The mean free path of the particles, ie the average distance that it is able to pass into the matter...

If there was no moon?

What would become of the Earth, if there was no moon? What would have changed? First of all, transparent moonlit nights, silvery paths on the water would disappear... But that's not all. There would be no lunar tides and tides, and therefore changed would be the conditions of navigation...
