Astronomical images by telescope. Plinius crater on the Moon


The Moon is much less geologically active than Earth. Unlike Earth’s crust, whose multiple tectonic plates overlaps and collides and gave rise to mountain areas or destroyed bottom seas, the Moon’s crust is a rigid single plate. A series of Moon features results from the deformation of the crust, which include compression (shortening) and tension (extension). Tectonic features are well illustrated around Humorum and Serenitatis basins.

About Lupu Victor Astronomy blog


Since 2010, I decided to use my computer and try to illustrate what I observe with the telescope and a pair of eyepieces. This was the beginning of a journey to produce this program. I eventually expanded the project, and became an astronomy and astrofotography enthusiast. I wanted to see what could do an eyepiece and a telescope for me.
These pages provide information on learning about astronomical objects and a view objects using the naked eye or different optics Discuss types of telescopes and audio-video accessories, and how to buy them.

Teoria Astronautului Antic


Poate ati vazut un documentar din anii ’70 numit Chariots of Gods,produs de Erich von Däniken.Acest om a dezvoltat o noua varianta de explicatie a relicvelor,manuscriselor,monumentelor,inscriptiilor sau formelor de relief antice datate cu mii de ani inaintea erei in care traim.Se stie prea putin despre teoria astronautului antic,in care Daniken crede cu tarie si pe buna dreptate dat fiind argumentele serioase pe care le prezinta.

Eu,ca multi altii, cred ca nu suntem demult pe aceasta planeta,si ca noi provenim din alta parte,sau am fost creati de fiinte din alta parte prin combinatia ADN-ului lor cu ceva (poate maimute) de pe aceasta planeta,ceea ce ar semnifica descoperirea verigii lipsa (poate ati mai auzit aceasta expresie) din scara evolutiei omului.

The Descent of MSL (Curiosity) Captured by HiRISE
This picture give me a warm fuzzy feeling up and down my leg.
MRO’s HiRISE camera , like an eye in the sky, caught this shot of the parachute and MSL during landing at Mars.
And that is from 340 kilometers of MRO’s altitude almost directly overhead Curiosity’s flight path.

Curiosity rover, will enter the Martian atmosphere


Any wrong move, like in any such mission, is crucial for the rover, which might arrive whole or in pieces on the planet. MSL’s heat shield, is the most powerful ever built to withstand high temperatures. It is used to enter the MSL in the planet’s atmosphere, to protect the rover from friction with the atmosphere, because will be achieved temperatures of 1600 degrees.
