The new geometry of the Russian Nadezhda. Three Russian mathematician suddenly found a real treasure

A group of graduates of the mechanics and mathematics of Moscow state University presented a series of articles describing the new geometry, which the authors called Nadezhda geometry. What is a "new geometry", than it differs from the old and what do mathematicians mean by "geometry", for a long time, really understood the editors of the "Attic".

Physicists believe that life can exist in a 2D world

Why do we live in a Universe with three spatial and one temporal dimension 3 + 1, as one would say cosmologists? Why this combination, and not 4 + 2 or 2 + 1? Over the last decade, physics many times explored this question in mind for other universes with other properties, to understand, could they be complex life or not. And inevitably come to the conclusion that it could exist in a universe with four spatial dimensions or two time. So people will inevitably be (and were) in the universe with dimension 3 +1.

In search of a cure for CRISPR: is it possible to reverse changes in the genes?

When the scientists behind the Manhattan project, learned about the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the enthusiasm of the enthusiasm was replaced by grim regret. What started as a revolution in physics, mutated into a weapon of mass destruction — which was impossible to defend. From the point of view of biology, CRISPR has the destructive power of this magnitude. And scientists do not want history repeated itself again.
