Scientists were able to trace the movements of the elusive particles up to her space of the Motherland, bright galaxies 4 billion light years. This is huge news: did this for the first time in the history of space exploration. Scientists have long puzzled over where high-energy cosmic particles that bombard the Earth with energy that is difficult to get even on the most powerful particle accelerators in the world. And so, physicists have identified the source of the energy lightweight particles called neutrinos. Intergalactic traveler came from bright galaxies — blazar — in the constellation of Orion, said scientists in a paper published July 12 in the journal Science.

We tend to think that our planet is perfect for life, and we like it. On Land there are all conditions for life existed, flourished and evolved for billions of years. We have liquid water on the surface, not too thin and not very thick atmosphere, suitable temperature and pressure at sea level. Fortunately for us, we need not only to be at a certain distance from the Sun.
