Space ships that travel through.
Perhaps the most interesting objects in the Game Life almost from the beginning were space ships. It samples, which, like the oscillators periodically repeat themselves. But, unlike oscillators, they each time are shifted to a new place.
Almost 20 years in Life was known practically only 4 spacecraft. It is moving diagonally glider and three orthogonal vehicle – light spaceship (LRC), the average space ship (CCM) and heavy spacecraft (TAC). Actually ships were more an attempt to build a heavier spacecraft has led to the emergence of fleets, which, in fact, are space ships. But evidence of split fleets on familiar components (some of which can’t exist by themselves) has led to the fact that fleets are often treated as composite objects.
These 4 ships (now they are called standard spaceships) are the smallest spaceships. They very often appear in the study of other configurations or in random samples. This especially applies to the glider, which consists of only five cells. Continue reading
Scientists: the ninth planet in the Solar system — 500-ton piece of ice
The ninth planet has a mass of 10 Earth masses and is moving strongly forward on a bizarre elliptical orbit around a hot star. …The discoverers of the planet are unable to observe firsthand the ninth element of the Solar system, but scientists using mathematical and computer simulation calculated the trajectory of the most distant planet.
Scientists have shown video of the new ninth planet of our galaxy
Yet due to the insufficient capabilities of optics, it is impossible to see this mysterious object. Astronomers still argue that the chaotic motion of some space objects in the Kuiper belt indicates the presence of “the ninth planet”.
New planet: scientists have uncovered details
“Ninth planet” — so scientists call this mysterious object, which has so far failed to see due to lack of opportunities of modern optics, according to “BBC Ukraine”. Continue reading
The organizers of the flight of the Russian truck “Progress MS” for the first time ran it with the help of satellite repeater
Several new Russian technology has been rolled out to the launch of a new Russian cargo ship “Progress MS” to the International space station. Apart from the fact that the ship itself and many of its systems have been tested in space flight for the first time, in a new way and passed the session with Earth. This was done through the satellite-retransmitter.
A historic event occurred on Monday, December 21. Launch vehicle (LV) “Soyuz-2.1 a” with the “MS Progress” was launched from pad № 31 Baikonur cosmodrome on 21 December at 11.44 MSK with 2.5 tons of various cargoes for the ISS.
– We used the satellite during the first cycle of flight, – says Deputy head of the scientific and technical centre of space-Rocket Corporation “Energy” Igor BRODSKY . Approximately 10 minutes after separation from the third stage of the rocket the ship made a turn to build orientation on the spacecraft “Luch-5B”, located on the geostationary orbit. Prior to this flight, the communication with the ships was carried out using only ground points, located on the territory of Russia “. Continue reading
