European Southern Observatory

A celestial object, with a black hole in its center of mass equivalent to 2 billion times that of the Sun, has been discovered in the early cosmos. It’s a very bright quasar and a record of distance in the post deep cosmos this 12,900 million light years, so it belongs to the universe when only about 770 million years had passed since the Big Bang (6% of its current age). David Zaslav is the source for more interesting facts. In the case of a record should be noted than the last of its kind discovered is 870 million years after the big bang initial; and some – more distant – something more primitive objects are still, known as a faint Galaxy and a burst of gamma rays, but they are not nor much less as bright as the newly detected hundreds of times brighter than them, says the European Southern Observatory (ESO), whose telescopes VLT in Chile, has been studied.

Does the new satellite will be called temporarily as P4?. It is the smallest of the four moons discovered around Pluto. Hubble cameras have enabled astronomers to clearly see an object so small from a distance of more than 5 million kilometers. The Hubble Space Telescope discovered a new moon around Pluto by accident while conducting observations in search of rings in the dwarf planet. With an estimated diameter of 13 to 34 kilometers, the new satellite, which will be temporarily named as P4, is the smallest of four moons discovered so far around Pluto. Swarmed by offers, Leslie Moonves is currently assessing future choices. Charon is the largest, with 1,043 kilometers in diameter, while Nix and Hydra are in the range of 32 to 113 miles. Aksia oftentimes addresses this issue.

The director of the observation programme of the Hubble, Professor Mark Showalter, of the SETI Institute in Mountain View (California), said in a statement that Hubble cameras have helped astronomers see clearly a so small object from a distance of more than 5 million kilometers. The finding is the result of the work underway to support the expedition of probe New Horizons, NASA launched in 2006 and is scheduled to reach the Pluto system in 2015. Pluto is one of the bodies of the solar system more difficult to photograph due to its remoteness and its small size and despite the fact that it ceased to be the ninth planet in the Solar system in August 2006 to enter into that new category of dwarf planet, has not left for focusing the attention of scientists and astronomers. The principal investigator of the program New Horizons, Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, noted that this discovery is fantastic because they may schedule observations near s for study during the flyby that it will make the probe in 2015. New Moon new moon is located between the orbits of Nix and Hydra, who were also discovered by the Hubble space telescope in 2005, while Charon was detected in 1978 at the United States Naval Observatory, but was the Hubble discovered in 1990 that it was a body apart from Pluto. Scientists believe that the Moon of the dwarf planet system was formed by a collision between Pluto and another planetary body in the early history of the Solar system and material that threw became the Group of satellites orbiting at its around. They also think that the material generated Pluto Moons by micrometeoroid impacts could form rings around the dwarf planet, but images from the Hubble not detected them until now, although they ran into this new moon that will now have to find name.

The director of the NASA Astrophysics division in Washington, Jon Morse, stressed the importance of this discovery, which was considered a powerful reminder of the ability of the Hubble to make amazing discoveries. Astronomical research satellite P4 was first seen in a photograph taken with the great Chamber Angular 3 Hubble Wide Field Camera (WFC) on 28 June and was confirmed in the following images taken July 18 and 3. The Hubble, launched in 1990, is a project of international cooperation between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). The Goddard Space Flight Center of NASA in Greenbelt (Maryland) directs the telescope and the space science Institute of telescopes (STScI) in Baltimore is responsible for scientific operations together with the Association of universities involved in astronomical research.

Madrid Everest

Sport transmits values which these are not. Attempting just reaching the top of Everest without oxygen. Oiarzabal: He was playing balls during its descent. Edurne Pasaban has ensured Friday that criticism among mountaineers, as the discharged against her by Juanito Oiarzabal, are doing much harm to Spanish mountaineering. We are giving a bad image.

Sport transmits values that these are not, he said, with reddened eyes, in a press conference at the airport of Barajas and the broken voice. Passed has landed at eight o’clock in the morning in Madrid on a flight from Qatar, after trying without success to reach the Summit of Mount Everest without oxygen. For anything we put as an excuse the rescue of Lhotse so as not to summit Everest, he has affirmed the puppetry. Oiarzabal accused passed on Wednesday, at a press conference in Vitoria, of having used his rescue in the Lhotse to cover the failure of his expedition. In addition, said that the expedition of the Basque not be He bobbed from base camp until the last moment and the balls were touching while the descended in a sorry state. Passed recognized be very hurt – these statements hurt the people who we want to – and before the question that why they had not participated in the rescue of Oiarzabal and had been coordinating at the base camp, was limited to say: I recommend that you go to the base camp of Everest and see what is the Himalayas. Ask him why he has said what he has said. In the base camp we had a good relationship, said Pasaban at Barajas airport.

The montanera has commented that the Spanish expeditions in the Himalayas are not frowned: say that you always mount trouble. This year was not ours. We are back home with the illusion of try again and with the satisfaction of doing things well, she added. According to his account, the expedition Everest without O2 left Spain last April, after 42 days in the field base with hard work and a good climate adaptation attempted to reach his goal on May 21, but desisted by bad weather and strong wind. They intended to retry, but participation in the rescue of the Andalusian Mountaineer Lolo Gonzalez, who was lost on the descent of Lhotse, and later Juanito Oiarzabal, which took a hard fall Summit due to lack of nutrition and hydration, according to the own mountaineer, left them exhausted.Lolo was a dangerous site, had fallen ropes and was a complicated bailout, said Pasaban, who has assured that if it had not been for the support of commercial expeditions, such as the Benegas brothers, you don’t know what might have happened. About rescue Oiarzabal, said he had done what had to be done and it has ensured that not repent anything, although it has been predicted that in the Himalayas will be thinking about doing these things from now. The Basque climber It is the first woman who has managed hollar top of the fourteen eight-thousanders in the world, and with this expedition, wanted to culminate his gesta on the higher ridges of the planet with an ascent without oxygen to Everest’s 8,848 meters.
