Russian Scientists to Create Universe in Vitro
February 28, 2017 20:57

Researchers have asked themselves whether it is possible to create such conditions in a limited space that this area would later expand into a fragment of the universe.
Russian scientists are exploring the possibility of creating conditions of the early universe in the laboratory. Professor, academician and chief researcher at the Nuclear Research Institute, RAS, Valery Rubakov reported to Tass about it.
"If you believe that the universe at some point began to expand and turn into what we see today, there is a theoretical question of whether it is possible to create such conditions  in a limited space that this area would later expand into a fragment of the universe similar to ours. The question was raised as early as 1980, but this was not possible under the then existing theories. Now there are new ideas (...), however if possible, it is still very difficult. The work in this direction is underway, but the challenge of "creating the universe in vitro" has not been resolved yet, "- Prof. Rubakov said .
This year Academician Rubakov has received Demidov Prize for his fundamental theoretical contributions into physics - quantum field theory, elementary particle physics, gravity, and the early universe theory.
Demidov Prize is considered one of the most prestigious non-governmental Russian scientific awards and is widely known both in this country and
abroad. It was established in 1832 by Pavel Demidov, a patron of arts and a  representtive of the Ural industrialists' genus. From 1866 to 1992, the prize was not awarded. In 1993, however, the International Demidov Foundation revived it and has awarded 82 scientists since then. The monetary size of the Demidov Prize makes 1 million rubles.
