Astronomer Fyodor Bredikhin

Astronomer Fyodor Bredikhin was born in 1831 in the city of Nikolaev in the ancient noble family.

To 14 years Bredikhin was home-schooled – in the estate of her father Colonie near Kherson. Then was sent to boarding school at Richelieu Lyceum in Odessa, and four years later transferred to the Lyceum. However, studying in the lycée he did not like, and in 1851 he transferred to Moscow University physico-mathematical faculty.

Bredikhina was interested in physics, but, obeying the fashion of those years, he intended to follow in the footsteps of his father and uncle, that is certainly to enroll in the naval service or in the artillery. Only in the last year after practical work in the Observatory Bredikhin became interested in astronomy.

In 1862 he defended his master’s thesis “On the tails of comets”. This study as would be anticipated the main direction of its future work in astronomy.

In 1867 Professor Bredikhina was granted planning a business trip. Good knowledge of the language enabled him, while in Italy, to be familiar with the works of the Society of spectroscopy. Many Italian researchers have become his friends, including the famous discoverer of the “canals” of Mars the astronomer Schiaparelli. Continue reading

What is the name of the largest planet

It happened because of that. the density of gases inside of it are incredibly low. Actually, in our Galaxy the number of stars is estimated at least 200 billion. White ovals on Jupiter limited circumferential zones. however, they can interact and form a region of chaotic clouds. On the Photo from a Space telescope named Hubble. made in ultraviolet rays. auroras appear as an annular zone around the poles of the planet. At the very least. its atmosphere is mostly hydrogen. The picture is composed of images. cameras made by Galileo using three filters. and shows. how it will look ancient rotating system of clouds. if you fly right over her. Most people go to work in the office. but my dream is to work at home.

Can you believe it. that many centuries ago.

The largest planet in the Solar system — Jupiter.

The largest planet of the Solar system The largest planet of the Solar system is.

Pluto is a planet or not. it was formulated the concept of determining Liberona the sky recently, a completely new object, a reddish point. which is very weakly visible. And that is what the scientist William Herschel was able to determine the rotation period of the planet. Instead of the Sun in our Solar system or somewhere on the outskirts. where it will not be visible. However by weight, it is second largest planet in three times. Continue reading

Parade of planets

Star line-up. As you know, these days several planets in the solar system lined up in one line. This so-called parade of planets. In Irkutsk cosmic phenomenon, of course, interested professionals and Amateurs to observe the Universe.

At five o’clock in the sky appears the first star of the big parade of planets. Despite the early hour and freezing temperatures, people came here by families with young children.

— Parade of planets happens once in a lifetime. At least see the time. Star-gazing, says participant observations Dmitry Bakers.

Organizes the monitoring of the Irkutsk planetarium. Brought two powerful telescope. With their help, you can enjoy a stunning view of space in all its glory. Thanks frosty air clearer picture. Continue reading
