Researchers of the Earth are not so many ways to look inside our own planet. Kola ultradeep well was drilled to a depth of a little over 12 kilometers, which is negligible compared to the radius of the Earth, which is about 6000 kilometers. Much more data has been received from seismic surveys. Changes in the speed and direction of the waves arising from earthquakes, have revealed the boundaries of zones with different physical properties. It has been found that in the center of the Earth is a solid core radius of about 1200 kilometers, surrounded by a layer of liquid material, a thickness of about 2300 kilometers.

Imagine the power in space. A world in which all electrical devices and appliances in the world are working from a stable cosmic radiation. It sounds like science fiction, but soon it could become a reality thanks to the efforts of Japanese scientists.
Mitsubishi has announced that she was able to transmit 10 kW of microwave energy at a distance of 500 meters in the air. Cosmic energy converted into electricity was used to power the LED lights on the Earth.Tough competition for traditional energy resources has forced many countries to look for alternative sources of energy.

The conclusion reached by an international team of scientists involved in drawing up the so-called World register of marine species by comparative analysis and consolidation of relevant databases available in different countries. As announced in the US representatives of the study, which is attended by scientists, including from Russia, it was found that 190 thousand. 400 naming hitherto known species are, according to all available data, the different names of the same marine living organisms. Absolute champion in this category was the sea slug Littorina saxatilis, which experts counted a total of 113 names. Thus, the former catalog of marine organisms, there are almost 419 thousand. Positions, experts as a result of their work, which was launched eight years ago, reduced by 45%. Read the rest of this entry »

Only 70 kilometers of thousands of years ago. The star was named after its discoverer Ralf-Dieter Scholz. At first it seemed that the discovery confirmed the theory put forward in 1984 by an employee of UC Berkeley Richard Muller, claiming that the companion star, called Nemesis, revolving around the sun at a distance, is the cause of mass extinctions on Earth, which occur every 27 million.
