11 November Mercury transit It occurs 1 time in about 13 year.

This day of November 11, 2019 was quite special, because on this day Mercury came between the planet Earth and the Sun, it happens once in the 13th year.The planet Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system, and it is closest to the Sun, it completes the orbiter of the Sun in 88 days, taking less time to orbit the Sun than the Earth.If we talk about the planet Mercury, it comes once between the Earth and the Sun in the 13th year, we know this phenomenon as transit.The planet Mercury passed directly between the Earth and the Sun, and upon seeing this event from Earth it appears as if there is a black dot on the head of the Sun, this phenomenon only occurs about once in the 13th century, so scientists call It is considered a rare phenomenon.

Such an event took place in 2006 and on May 9, 2016, the transit or passage of a planet on the face of the Sun was a relatively rare event, as we can see from Earth, this transit was possible only due to Mercury and Venus.  Solar scientist Mijit Adams of Helitophysics and Planets says that the universe is like experiencing miracles, seeing transits and eclipses, and this experience serves to encourage all of us,It gives us opportunities to make accurate predictions of science and mathematics.Like every time, this year also saw transit widely visible from most parts of the Earth, including the Americas, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and Western Asia, with transit times around 6:35  It started at CST at around 9:20 am CST, the center of Mercury being as close as it was to approaching the Sun.This transit was for about six hours, and so there was plenty of time to catch the show.

During transit, Mercury appeared as a small point, it covered a small part of the Sun's surface, it is only 1/283 the diameter of the Sun.The magnification of a telescope (minimum 50x) with a solar filter is required to see such a low-diameter transit.The scientist says that we should never look at the sun directly or with a telescope without any protection.Because it can cause serious and permanent vision damage, always use a safe sun filter to protect your eyes.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope will be closed.

NASA briefly informed that the Spitzer Space Telescope will be permanently discontinued on January 30, 2020. After about 16 years of discovering the universe in light energy.  And by that time, the space shuttle has been working for more than 11 years beyond its prime mission, Spitzer examines the universe's various objects in infrared light.  It was in 2003 through the rocket that the American Space Research Organization NASA entered the space and entered the orbit around the Earth.  Spitzer rotates the sun on a path similar to that of the Earth but it runs a bit slower.  Today it is about 158 ​​million miles (254 million kilometers) away from our planet - more than 600 times the distance between Earth and Moon.  The spacing of Spitzer's orbit curve means that when the spacecraft indicates its fixed antenna on the earth to download data or receive commands, its solar panels tend to lean away from the sun.  During those periods, to operate the space shuttle, one should rely on…

SpaceX is launching its next dragon spacecraft.

SpaceX is preparing for its next mission, very soon Spacex will launch the Dragon Spacecraft with its Falcon 9 Rocket.
  SpaceX is the 18th commercial reproduction service mission, dragon spacecraft will be loaded with dozens of experiments made in space.  Launch date: Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 7:35 pm  International Space Station (ISS) us  The National Laboratory SpaceX's dragon is giving a finalization to more than two dozen payloads for launch in a circular circular laboratory.  Many of these payloads are aimed at improving human health on the earth, many of which are focused on drug development.  In addition, a series of payloads from identified private sector partners will be launched on this mission.  More than 40 student experiments and demonstrations have been included on the 18th Commercial Recepti Services Mission (CRS-18) of SpaceX.  One part of ISS American National Laboratory's goal is to encourage and engage next generation scientists.                              …

SpaceX,Dragon Cargo Returns Mission in Pacific ends with SplashDown

SpaceX dragon cargo spaceship dropped at 5:48 pm in the Pacific Ocean.  The EDT (2:48 p.m. PDT) is located approximately 202 miles southwest of Long Beach, California, which is located at the end of the company's 17th contracted Cargo Resipulli mission for NASA.  Spacecraft returned more than 4,200 pounds for other valuable scientific uses. Some scientific investigations of Dragon's return to Earth include: Overview of protein crystals growth, in the use of NASA's biophysics-6, to be interested in cancer treatment and radiation safety  There has been an increase in the growth of two proteins.  Scientists are using ground-based predictions and X-ray crystallography in space to determine that proteins are beneficial in crystallization in microbiology, where some proteins can grow with big and small flaws.Microglio biosynthesis in M…
