Traditionally science divides humanity into 12 civilizations of Asia, America, Africa, Europe and Oceania. Scientists from Yakutia proposed an option that besides classic local civilizations there was an Arctic or Circumpolar civilization. Scientific communities have already admitted their version.


In the space of his own career, Space Oddity has remained David Bowie's most commercially successful hit. Almost prophetically written a few months before Apollo II mission, a story of an unfortunate spaceman Major Tom told the earthlings that "planet Earth is blue", which was then confirmed by the Apollo photographs. Many years later, Commander Chris Hadfield used his final day at the International Space Station to record his own cover of Bowie's song. This double tribute - both to the song and to David Bowie, whose exhibition at the Victoria and Albert in London runs till August - has amassed millions of views on YouTube.


Summertime is the period when many of us prefer to go to the woods for a traditional Russian-style barbeque called shashlyki. Unfortunately, this may also be the time when we are most susceptible to the encephalitis and Lyme disease caused by tick bites. Russian scientists have recently developed an express-test to help quickly discover, whether or not a tick was a virus carrier.


A recent expedition by Dmitry Kravchenko, a long-term explorer of the last journey of Willem Barentsz, has ended with an unexpected discovery of four fragments of the carvel bottom frames. Next year the group of scientists hope to find all remains of the sunken carvel.


Russian scientists and psychologists have created a system Spartan 300 to detect deviant behaviour in the crowd. The system uses the findings of Prof. Paul Ekman research into psychology of facial expressions, body movements, and speech patterns.


Petersburg scientists designed a new kind of rear-view mirror: it now combines spherical and aspherical mirror elements. The new design now allows a driver to better see the road and cars behind and around his vehicle. The first roadtests were successful.


Latest issue of 'Journal of Environmental Radioactivity' contains a paper by Russian researchers that covers distribution of radioactive isotopes from Fukushima nuclear power plant in space and time.


According to Russian researchers, dragon flies play a major role in transfer of nutrients, essential for terrestrial dwellers, from water to the shore.


Cultivable pluripotent stem cells are under close attention of researchers all over the world due to their enormous potential for curing a vast range of human degenerative diseases, which demand tissue replacement therapy. These cells have two unique properties: they can transform into any known cell types in an organism, and they also are able to indefinitely proliferate in vitro with all their fantastic properties kept unchanged.


Physicists from Novosibirsk are on the way to designing a biological sensor for easy and cheap diagnostics of various pathologies, as well as detection of tiniest amounts of hazardous substances in gas and liquid media.


Shallow and nicely heated water reservoirs are notable for high biomass production and increased amount of organic matter. Such water reservoirs often bloom during a period of explosive propagation of algae, and their bottom is covered with a thick layer of organic sediments. Russian scientists suggest using this organic matter for making biological fuel, an alternative for hydrocarbon fuel.


Solar batteries become more and more widely used in common life, and photovoltaics (photoelectric transformation of solar energy) is claimed to be one of most promising fields of renewable energy. Russian researchers know how to make these batteries cheaper and more effective.


Know-how of Novosibirsk scientists provides world electronic industry with laser and scintillation crystals of extremely high quality.


Russian physicists know how to make world wide web develop faster by means of remarkably extending capacity of hard drives.


Gold nanoparticles are these days often used in medicine for purposes of treating and diagnostics of various diseases. However, scientists from all over the world have hot arguments about possible toxicity of this product of nanotechnologies and ability of these particles to cause mutations in living beings.


Smoking is not very popular now, since medics and scientists proved how dangerous inhaling tobacco smoke is to our health. In order to explain benefits of healthy lifestyle to people, scientists decided to learn more about people, who use to smoke.


Research, performed in Russia and other countries, revealed that formation processes of psoriatic and atherosclerotic plaques could have common mechanisms.


Existing treatment for the Parkinson's disease improves motion behaviour of patients, but do not protect their neurons from deterioration and death. This means these drugs eliminate sysmptoms, but don't really cure the disease. Russian researchers currently work on a treating agent, which can prevent neuros from dying, and are testing the drug.


Researchers from Russia developed a new technique of nanolithography for carbon-based materials, involving anodic oxidation by means of a probe of an atomic force microscope.


Russian physicists now know how to insert thinnest graphite layers into diamonds in order to later make various parts for electronic and optoelectronic devices
