Unlike most Pakistani start-ups that seek to directly target consumers with easy day-to-day use solutions, Perihelion
is far more sophisticated in its technology and has a different pool of clients such as government bodies or NGOs.
1 Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Letters, that not one but two planets are needed to explain the perihelion
Hours before ISON reached perihelion
, stunning images taken by SOHO's Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO) showed the bright, elongated tail of the onrushing comet.
A crucial uncertainty after perihelion
involves not just whether the comet's nucleus will break up, but when.
We can hope that C/2012 S1 (ISON) will show a similar effect and be rejuvenated by the time it reaches perihelion
, after this issue of the Journal goes to press.
Comet Lovejoy, which reached perihelion
on December 15, 2011 is the best known recent Kreutz-group sungrazer.
The word perihelion
comes from the Greek words "peri" (meaning "near") and "helios" (meaning "sun").
He said the dates for aphelion and perihelion
can vary every year by a few days.
The Kreutz-group comets are a family of sungrazing comets, characterized by orbits taking them extremely close to the Sun at perihelion
. Believed to be fragments of one large comet that broke up several centuries ago, they are named for German astronomer Heinrich Kreutz, who, in a paper in 1888, first demonstrated their relationship.
WOULD it be mischievous of me to suggest that global warming fanatics tend to have a simplistic understanding of climate conditions on our planet - and would it also be naughty of me to point out that the Earth reaches its nearest point (yes, that's right) to the Sun on January 4 2011, when the Earth will be at perihelion
? Considering this fundamental truth, coupled with the amount of claimed emissions being...
