In many parts of the Earth, for example, in Australia and Europe have updated temperature records. In some regions of the United States, however, was much colder than usual.
The world meteorological organization has identified a number of record-breaking weather events for 2014.
– In September in some regions of the Balkans had double the monthly rainfall. In some areas of Turkey, the amount of precipitation exceeded the average monthly rate 4 times.
– The city of Guelmim in Morocco was flooded because of annual precipitation that fell in just 4 days.

In August in the West, Japan was the heavy rain since the beginning of the official meteorological observations.
– Western United States, some regions of China and Central and South America have experienced a long drought.
In 2014 appeared only 72 tropical storm, which is less than the average. In the North Atlantic, North Pacific and North Indian ocean cyclone activity was slightly below average.
A new record global temperatures, according to experts, completely debunks the myth of the termination of the process of global warming. The main wine in the temperature rise of the planet lies on the person. If immediate action – reducing greenhouse gas emissions – it is possible to limit the rise in global average temperature to 2 degrees Celsius, experts say.
A group of British scientists from the University of Oxford conducted a series of laboratory work, in which was discovered the part of the brain responsible for our conscience. This area, according to experts, is in the Department of eyebrows.
Researchers from Oxford conducted a very interesting study, which found that in the brain in the area of the eyebrow is an area responsible for our conscience. These findings, scientists were able to make the analysis of the brain of humans and primates. It is known that the last species of mammals such concept does not exist. On this basis, the British experts believe that the actions of any person in the first place, it is estimated by the brain, because the conscience occurs on the background of the reactions in it.
The experiment was attended by 50 representatives of the strengths and weaknesses of the sexes. All subjects underwent MRI brain scans, which allowed us to see for eyebrows spherical clot in the brain. The zone of conscience activates people’s understanding of things, what is good and what is bad.
On Mars found missing on December 25, 2003 spacecraft Beagle-2″. Previously it was thought that the module is designed to search for signs of life on the planet, crashed while landing (crash airbags and parachutes). However, NASA found “Beagle-2” using the HiRise camera: the craft landed on Mars in one piece, only the failure of solar panels, not released an over the air antenna, led to the fact that the Earth has lost contact with him. On opening said at a press-conference of the European space Agency.
“Beagle-2”, developed by British scientists under the leadership of Colin Pillinger was podzemlen to the vehicle European space mission “Mars Express”. It was the first in the country’s history module for running on other planets. The device was supposed to work on the surface of Mars 180 days, studying the Geology, Mineralogy, climate, as well as looking for signs of life.
However, during landing a link with the “Beagle-2 was interrupted. Back in 2003, critics of the project were warned about the lack of sophistication of the device – the first of his landing system consisting of only one parachute and multiple airbags. During testing pillow exploded, and the parachute design had to be changed just a month before the flight. The European space Agency (ESA) were even ready to abandon apparatus.
Images from HiRise showed that the unit has successfully sat on Mars – on the plain of ISIS, just six kilometers from the originally planned site. His landing system worked perfectly, and the loss caused by a failure in the motor, the opening of the solar panel: those not opened and the radio antenna was not able to start working.
“Beagle-2” was named in honor of the ship “Beagle”, which made their expedition Charles Darwin. This device is the brainchild of astrophysics Colin Pillinger who hoped to accomplish with it revolutionary discoveries about ancient life on Mars. Funding the project has received mainly from private sources, through organized Pillinger advertising campaigns. Scientist attracted to the design of the apparatus of the richest artist in the world by Damien Hirst (Damien Hirst), and a musical theme, which is “Beagle-2” was supposed to play at planting, was written by the band Blur. Scientists say a sad irony in the fact that Pillinger took place just eight months before the final clarification of a successful landing.
