Space Roses

Unicorns and roses – it would seem that the combination can be found only in fairy tales. However, NASA Infrared Telescope Facility Wide (Wide-field Infrared Explorer, WISE) has recently received image Rosette Nebula, which is located exactly in the constellation Unicorn. This nebula, shaped like a flower located in our Galaxy and is also known under the less romantic name NGC 2237. It is a huge gas-dust cloud in which stars form. Distance to nebula is (according to different sources) from 4500 to 5000 light years of space in the center of the flower is a cluster of young stars called NGC 2244. The most massive stars emit a huge amount of ultraviolet and generate strong stellar winds that erode the surrounding dust and gas, creating a large central cavity. The radiation also cuts off the electrons from the surrounding hydrogen ionizing it and creating what astronomers call Zone H II, or the same region of ionized hydrogen. Although the Rosette Nebula is too weak (it can not be seen with the naked eye), astronomers like to Cluster NGC 2244, because it can be seen in small telescopes or with help of good binoculars.

It was opened by the English astronomer John Flamsteed with a telescope in about 1690, but the nebula was discovered about 150 years later, John Herschel (who is the son of William Herschel who discovered infrared light). In the image obtained after multiple exposures WISE, also shows a trace of a satellite flying in a light-colored stripes. This image is a combination of four pictures received four infrared detectors WISE in different colors. At the final composite image colors are subject-iconic blue and light blue represent the infrared radiation with a wavelength of 3.4 and 4.6 microns, respectively, and it preimeschestvenno stellar radiation. Green and red wavelengths are shown 12 and 22 microns, which are mainly emitted by the heated dust .

Scientific Journals

A man who has devoted himself to science in the 21st century, a matter of respect. After all, such as it depends on the development progress. Every new scientist – this is the completion of the gold reserves of the state and its people. Associate scientist or professor, seems to know a secret which can not know everything. His mind is developing and growing, giving light and clarity of the universe. We do not know what he was doing in his lab, or what thoughts and challenges keeps in his head, but then he is looking for journal scientific publications, and publishes an article that sheds light on his work, his discovery, his investigation. And he did not tell anyone about the problems that arise when entering graduate school for example, how many nights he did not sleeping and not eating because of sociology, or problems with the publication of articles in scientific journals – how many sites need to be reviewed to find the appropriate scientific journal … For him the important opportunity of the experiment, analysis of these facts, the which ordinary people do not even think.

Here's an example: "Skeletonization fingerprint image 'to you about something speaks? This article was published in a scientific journal and the author awarded the President for deep scientific study. Here it is – a scientist, the real, he is interested in the idea of Skeletonization, and not a reward for it. But for a scientist it is also the bread. It's his job – to make new discoveries and to publish articles to educate others. And magazines scientific publications can help scientists to present their research findings. Publish an article in the journal of scientific publications is a prerequisite for dissertation and capacity to new and emerging excavations in science. To publish scientific works must try to find the one magazine that will not leave at the end of the article content, and value it highly. "The World of Arts" – this magazine, which will take into account all wishes of the author-scientist. To publish the article enough to link to the publication of articles and graduate students and postdoctoral article will be published.

Royal Navy

Apparently, they crossed the resulting migration towards the coast near the Uruguayan oil strip width of 30 meters and a length of 20 kilometers. Land pollution is the result of a collision between two commercial ships. When an accident of Greek and Maltese vessel in the ocean has resulted in at least 14 thousand cubic meters of fuel. According to scientists, the number of dead penguins may increase. The country's authorities intend to impose a large fine on the owners, because of ocean pollution that has occurred, resulting in dead birds.

The population of the Magellanic Penguin continues to decline and in our days. Up to 20 dolphins have died off the coast of Cornwall English. According to the Association of British divers, environmentalists, the dolphins are likely to have been thrown ashore in while a strong ebb. Arriving on the scene, rescue workers said they opened their eyes a spectacle it was "just horrible." Five animals have been able to save – the rescuers on the boat had to take them to a safe place and let the sea. The reason for the mass death of dolphins off the coast of Cornwall English teaching could become the Royal Navy.

Autopsy of animals showed no obvious cause of death, so that environmental specialists can talk as long as only hypothetical. At present, ecologists examine whether there were no deaths of dolphins in the area of unusual underwater noise caused by movement of ships or military exercises. At last Week 55 besklyuvyh rare dolphins ashore in Madagascar.
