Hiding behind the noble goal of "saving people's money from attacks of various kinds of crooks from science, academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences for its many publications in the media, in addition to discredit breakthrough technologies and theories, just distract the people and the government of Russia from its inefficient work, which spent an incredibly huge amounts of money.

This laser turret promises to be much more effective than any automatic gun - she has unlimited ammunition, high accuracy of fire, the possibility of intercepting missiles and low collateral damage.

Scientists: Secrets of the genome snails will allow a person to live up to 500 years
Viewings: 9263Scientists of Australia believe that a person can not get old. According to scientists, this discovery was possible thanks to the snails. Experts believe that in snails have the ability to slow the aging process during hibernation. In case if it will be possible to identify these genes, it will contribute to the prolongation of human life. According to biologists, some snails can prolong his life from 3 to 23 years, which can be compared with the prolongation of human life up to 500 years.

It is easy to guess that such a two-dimensional layer is not too similar to the real body, where the cells are organized in a three-dimensional structure. And is that really reliable results need to confirm their experiments with these organs, cells which communicate the most natural way.

The developed technology allows to expand the space solar power sail with a radius of 1 kilometre
Viewings: 5565Specialists of the research laboratory of electronics of the University of Helsinki has developed design and technology deployment electric space sails (ESAIL)with a radius of 1 kilometre, which, interacting with the charged particles of the solar wind, would ensure constant acceleration of the spacecraft traveling to a long and distant journey into the depths of space.
