Улаанбаатар /МОНЦАМЭ/ В понедельник состоялась пресс-конференция, на которой представители ученых Монголии и Японии рассказали о результатах совместного исследования наскальных рисунков, найденных за последние годы.
«Наши ученые работают с японскими учеными с 1996 года. В настоящее время ученые из двух стран ввели в научный оборот более 50 памятников письменности. Например, из результатов полевых исследований этого года можно выделить изучение письменности на горе Дэлгэрхангай в аймака Дундговь и на воротах Сэруун в сомоне Баянхутаг аймака Хэнтий. В частности, письменность горы Дэлгэрхангай является одной из самых древних наскальных изображений в нашей стране, а наскальная живопись вороты Сэруун, которая относится к древнему периоду 1191 года написана на чжурчжэньском и китайском языках»,- сообщил на пресс-конференции ведущий сотрудник, доктор Института истории и археологии Академии наук Б.Цогтбаатар.
По мнению ученых, петроглифы на воротахр Сэруун рассказывают о войне Великой монгольской империи против татар и были оставлены военачальником династии Цзинь Вангин Чинсаном, который участвовал в войне монголов против татар. Историк и монголовед Козецу Сузуки сообщил: «Петроглифы горы Дэлгэрхангай были впервые изучены и вошли в научный оборот профессором Института истории А. Очиром. Самое главное то, что оригинал данных наскальных петроглифов был перенесен на бумагу и сохранен в истории империи Хань. Поэтому исследователи давно знали содержание этих петроглифов. Большинство ученых выдвигали разную гипотезу о месте битвы между этими двумя империями».

First steps: returning humanity to the Moon

First steps: returning humanity to the Moon

ESA – European Space Agency patch.


20 September 2017


In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage.



Moonset 

By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business.


Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for less than one day. Those small steps for humanity, and the missions that followed, taught us much about the Moon, our cosmic time capsule. But humans have not returned since Apollo 17 departed in 1972. 


Today’s technology could easily get us back to the Moon, but it is still expensive to develop the ride and take everything needed to support life with us. ESA wants our return to the Moon to be sustainable and based on partnerships – not only with international space agencies but also with business. A commercial approach may just be the ticket – literally and figuratively – to making it happen. 


Rather than develop a complete lander mission from scratch – a long and costly process – ESA wants to buy a ride on a commercial lander to deliver our precious research equipment safely to the surface. Once there, we are ready to pay the ‘roaming charges’ to talk to our hardware.



In-Situ Resource Utilisation

But for our return to the Moon to be truly sustainable, we must make use of lunar resources. So in addition to transportation and communication, we are looking to invest in the development and pay for the use of technology that can turn indigenous lunar material into oxygen and water, critical resources for sustaining future human operations in deep space.


Why the emphasis on sustainability? If been there, done that were the sole definition of exploration, then setting our sights only on more remote parts of our Solar System would make sense. But while we learned a lot about the Moon from Apollo, we literally just scratched the surface of Earth’s eighth continent.


Satellites orbiting the Moon have since revealed the presence of oxygen and water ice. These are potential usable resources for our spacefaring future.



Destination: Moon

Shape the next act


 ESA is inviting service providers with the right ideas to take part in a one-year study that will shape this In-Situ Resource Utilisation Demonstrator Mission. We want to hear what commercial partners need from us and share what we expect from them.


Together, we want to explore what it would mean to make lunar exploration a viable, competitive, and, most importantly, sustainable endeavour.



Lunar base made with 3D printing

We want to go back to the Moon to crack its mysteries and use it as a springboard towards humanity’s future in deep space. If you are a commercial enterprise ready to take on the challenge and build on the legacy of Neil and Buzz, then we want to hear from you.

Contents of Jules Verne ‘time capsule’ revealed

Contents of Jules Verne ‘time capsule’ revealed


The archaeological team who discovered a 19th-century metallic box in the French Pyrenees a few months ago have finally revealed its contents. It is thanks to the works of Jules Verne that the box was discovered, and particularly to the analysis of the writer’s tomb.

Archaeologists and historians from the original team, alongside experts from The Explorers Club NYC, worked together during the opening and extraction of the contents of the box, all having previous experience in handling similar historical artefacts. The contents of the box have been unveiled via an online video.

In the video, we can see that to avoid breaking the lock, experts tried to access the box from the side using a snake camera. This proved unsuccessful due to its complexity and they eventually had to force the lock. Among the metal-based objects that were found: a telescope, a triangle, a medieval coin, a simple ring, a necklace and a key. All were found in a state of advanced oxidation.




Among the other extracted pieces that were found: a book relating to a mining treaty, containing several alchemic references; a leather notebook with documents inside; a map of Europe with noticeable marks on Peloponnese regions and documents about the phases of the moon. Interestingly, a copy of a New York newspaper dating from 1890 was also found, with a story referencing Nellie Bly, who had managed to break the world record by traveling the world in 72 days, inspired by Jules Verne’s novel.

The most noticeable aspect of the documents are the number of anagrams, lines, and manuscripts with symbols and drawings which are unclear, and may be cryptograms or codes from an unknown secret society. Although it is not yet confirmed whether the documents and objects found actually belonged to Jules Verne, everything indicates that they had at least belonged to the sculptor of the author’s tomb, or people close to him.

Medieval porpoise ‘grave’ on Channel island puzzles archaeologists

Medieval porpoise ‘grave’ on Channel island puzzles archaeologists


Archaeologists digging at an island religious retreat have unearthed the remains of a porpoise that, mystifyingly, appears to have been carefully buried in its own medieval grave.

The team believe the marine animal found on the island of Chapelle Dom Hue, off the west coast of Guernsey, was buried in the 14th century.


When they first spotted the carefully cut plot they were convinced it was a grave and would hold human remains, but they were taken aback when they dug further and unearthed the skull and other body parts of a porpoise.


Quite why the porpoise was buried so carefully on the island, which is thought to have been used by monks seeking solitude, is a mystery.


Porpoises were eaten in medieval times but it would have been easier to dispose of the remains in the sea, which is only 10 metres from the site.


Philip de Jersey, a States of Guernsey archaeologist, said: “If they had eaten it or killed it for the blubber, why take the trouble to bury it? Some effort was made to create a neat hole.”




De Jersey said it was possible that a monk hid the body of the porpoise because he was not supposed to have it, or that the body was placed in the hole in salt to preserve it.


“It may have been packed in salt and then for some reason they didn’t come back to it.”


Another intriguing theory is that the animal had some sort of religious significance to the people who used the island. “The dolphin has a strong significance in Christianity but I’ve not come across anything like this before,” said De Jersey. “It’s the slightly wacky kind of thing that you might get in the iron age but not in medieval times.”


He said it was the most unusual find in his 35-year career. “It’s very peculiar, I don’t know what to make of it. Why go to the trouble of burying a porpoise in what looks like a grave. It’s a wonderful surprise.”


As well as the porpoise remains, shards of 14th-century pottery, a prehistoric stone tool and what is believed to be the remains of the walls of the monks’ retreat have been found.


The porpoise remains have been removed and will be studied by a marine expert.

Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens to get structural makeover

Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens to get structural makeover


The colossal Temple of Olympian Zeus or ‘Olympeion’ in central Athens, one of the signature monuments of the Greek capital, is to undergo a complete structural repair and restoration. The go-ahead for the plans was given by Greece’s Central Archaeological Council in a recent session.

“The monument has several structural restoration problems. There had been no progress on the issue until now because it had to be inducted into some sort of National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) programme,” the head of the Athens Antiquities Ephorate Eleni Banou told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Tuesday.


The restoration had to be attempted, Banou noted, “because as I said to the CAC, if we don’t we will be answerable to history.”


There is currently extensive structural damage to the colossal monument, she pointed out, especially to the columns, which make it urgent to mount a “rescue operation” to stop the causes for its continued wear and to reinforce its structural stability. The proposed plans envisage the repair of damaged architectural elements and work to maintain the marble surfaces.


The last recorded major damage to the monument was in 1944, during the Greek civil war, where the marks of the bullets were still visible on the columns, Banou said. Prior to that, the bulk of the damage was done in the Byzantine era when most of its 104 pillars were ground down to make first-class lime or looted for use as building materials.


Currently, only 16 pillars of the massive temple still survive and were re-erected in their present form in 1835, while the last work to structurally support the monument was done in the late 1960s.


Construction of the Olympeion began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until 638 years after later, by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD. During Roman times it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece.

Webb 101: 10 Facts about the James Webb Space Telescope

Webb 101: 10 Facts about the James Webb Space Telescope

Did you know…?


image

1. Our upcoming James Webb Space Telescope will act like a powerful time machine – because it will capture light that’s been traveling across space for as long as 13.5 billion years, when the first stars and galaxies were formed out of the darkness of the early universe.


image

2. Webb will be able to see infrared light. This is light that is just outside the visible spectrum, and just outside of what we can see with our human eyes.


image

3. Webb’s unprecedented sensitivity to infrared light will help astronomers to compare the faintest, earliest galaxies to today’s grand spirals and ellipticals, helping us to understand how galaxies assemble over billions of years.

4. Webb will be able to see right through and into massive clouds of dust that are opaque to visible-light observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope. Inside those clouds are where stars and planetary systems are born.


image

5. In addition to seeing things inside our own solar system, Webb will tell us more about the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars, and perhaps even find the building blocks of life elsewhere in the universe.

6. Webb will orbit the Sun a million miles away from Earth, at the place called the second Lagrange point. (L2 is four times further away than the moon!)


image

7. To preserve Webb’s heat sensitive vision, it has a ‘sunshield’ that’s the size of a tennis court; it gives the telescope the equivalent of SPF protection of 1 million! The sunshield also reduces the temperature between the hot and cold side of the spacecraft by almost 600 degrees Fahrenheit.


image

8.  Webb’s 18-segment primary mirror is over 6 times bigger in area than Hubble’s and will be ~100x more powerful. (How big is it? 6.5 meters in diameter.)


image

9.  Webb’s 18 primary mirror segments can each be individually adjusted to work as one massive mirror. They’re covered with a golf ball’s worth of gold, which optimizes them for reflecting infrared light (the coating is so thin that a human hair is 1,000 times thicker!).


image

10. Webb will be so sensitive, it could detect the heat signature of a bumblebee at the distance of the moon, and can see details the size of a US penny at the distance of about 40 km.


image

BONUS!  Over 1,200 scientists, engineers and technicians from 14 countries (and more than 27 U.S. states) have taken part in designing and building Webb. The entire project is a joint mission between NASA and the European and Canadian Space Agencies. The telescope part of the observatory was assembled in the world’s largest cleanroom at our Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.


Webb is currently being tested at our Johnson Space Flight Center in Houston, TX.


image

Afterwards, the telescope will travel to Northrop Grumman to be mated with the spacecraft and undergo final testing. Once complete, Webb will be packed up and be transported via boat to its launch site in French Guiana, where a European Space Agency Ariane 5 rocket will take it into space.
