200 years of research of Antarctica
Проект: Arctic and Antarctic in modern geopolitics

Antarctica is a centre for scientific discovery, environmental studies and international diplomacy. The mainland was officially opened 200 years ago, in January 1820, when members of the Russian expedition under the command of Mikhail Lazarev and Faddey Bellingshausen landed on the ground in the place which is now known as Fimbulisen the ice shelf on the Eastern side of the continent.

Проект: Arctic and Antarctic in modern geopolitics

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.
