Scientists managed to prove Einstein’s theory of relativity
Einstein’s General theory of relativity is proven. This conclusion is contained in the work of a group of international scientists who observed the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* in the center of the milky Way.
According to General relativity, gravitational effects are due to the curvature of space-time due to the presence of mass. This accurately describes the behavior of light, which is affected by the attraction of a black hole. In addition, scientists have found that as a result of the gravitational red shift there is a delayed time effect.
The rate of extinction of plants on Earth increased by 350 times

Life near airports embittered birds
Experts observed the birds living in the airports of Manchester and Amsterdam, as well as in two national parks located at a distance of 20 and 50 kilometers from the landing site
As it turned out, the birds, for a long time forced to hear the plane take off, eventually began to sing at lower frequencies — this affected both the upper and lower limits of the range. Experts tend to suggest that this is due to hearing impairment in birds. Another difference between the birds that lived near the airport, from those who lived from him at a considerable distance, was a much greater aggression, manifested by the first. Some tenkovi even attacked the established scientists of the column from which came the songs of other members of their species.

“Coughing” red giant will help understand how the Sun will die
Astronomers have been watching the huge star located in the Northern part of the constellation URSA Minor for more than 100 years. Now scientists From the national University of Australia reported that the celestial body is shrouded in “cough” and sends “shock waves” into the surrounding space. It’s the red giant T Ursae Minoris (or simply T UMi), about 1.2 billion years old, originally about twice the size of the Sun, and now its nucleus has exhausted all hydrogen, leaving only carbon and oxygen.
According to Australian astronomers, whose work is reported in The Astrophysical Journal, over the past 30 years, the red giant has significantly decreased in size, brightness and began to cool. As a result, experts predict, the oscillations will so Deplete the star that it will shrink into a white dwarf. A similar fate will befall our Sun, scientists believe: this process of” dying ” can begin in five billion years. The sun will explode, engulf nearby planets, throw its outer material into the planetary nebula and decrease dramatically. At first, this white dwarf will still be hot, but little by little will begin to lose the remnants of its thermal energy, becoming in the end just a cold dead rock in space.
The head of the study Meredith Joyce (Meridith Joyce) noted that the next 30-50 years, astronomers will continue to observe the evolution of T Ursae Minoris, to confirm or deny their predictions about our sun.
Mannequin Starman driving Tesla Roadster made the first flyby of the Sun
American company SpaceX led By Elon Musk launched the car outside the atmosphere in February 2018.

Now Tesla can use this as a publicity stunt.
Cracks in the Sun greatly disturbed and frightened astronomers.
A couple of years ago, NASA was shocked by the news of a huge crack in the Sun, which was more than 500 kilometers in size. Then the holes began to appear strong wind flows.
Recently it became known that the Sun again appeared gap, this time astronomers are very scared, because in the life cycle of the star should not be such phenomena, they always mean and portend something bad. This gap could mean accelerating fuel production. And this situation can lead to several options. Either it will explode and incinerate everything in the Solar system, or the star will cool down and there will be an ice age that no one can survive.
Scientists have said that the slightest change in spectral radiation can have large-scale and irreparable consequences for the planet. Some experts are calm, as they say that cracks in the Sun-this is a common phenomenon, which is simply not fully understood. Scientists have not come to a consensus and at the moment have not found the cause of the gap and all possible consequences.
NASA creates atomic clocks for deep space
NASA continues to systematically and gradually perform all the steps necessary for long-range flights. Including for a widely announced mission to Mars. Testing of unusual atomic clocks will take place throughout the year. If the results of the experiment will be considered successful, such atomic frequencies NASA plans to use in one of its unmanned ships, which will be sent to deep space. Their main purpose will be to promote accurate navigation in outer space.
It is reported that a very important technical solution was used in this watch when it was created. It is assumed that it will make it possible to safely move spacecraft sent into outer space.It is assumed that the new atomic clock will be able to independently calculate the trajectory of the further path. That is, there will be no need to wait for the transfer of this information from Earth. Thus, the whole process will become much faster, which is a requirement if the ship moves away from Earth for a great distance.
