About 40 years people only fly around the Earth. Why? What's new about the Universe we learned with the help of astronauts over the years? But manned space flight is spent over a third of the space budget of the developed countries. The work space of machines today, and is much more effective and much cheaper. Talk about flying to Mars is just empty words until we learn how long to fly beyond the Earth's magnetosphere. on the other hand, today Russia is in fact a monopolist on the market of manned space flight. It would be foolish to refuse such benefits. Thanks to manned space flight arose such a synthetic science, space biology and space medicine. Manned spaceflight allows us today to seek solutions to problems of survival of mankind as a biological...
Alexander Panin — candidate of biological Sciences, senior researcher, IITP RAS, the author of the popular science book "the Sum of biotechnology and blogger in LJ scinquisitor. Every year of life the probability of dying increases in humans, we age. But it's not a universal rule, is fundamentally an irresistible law of nature. Some organisms such as Hydra or naked mole rat, have a mortality rate almost independent of age, their aging is negligible. The study of these and other long-lived organisms sheds light on the fundamental mechanisms of aging, opening up therapeutic approaches to slow aging and prolong life. We'll talk about what are the modern theories of aging, what research is underway in this area and what practical results were achieved.

We do not always distinguish reality and fiction, and willingly our mind finds patterns where there are none. We are superstitious and believe in omens.

Analyzing other people's mistakes and funny stories about the paranormal with a session of exposure, try to develop new approaches to the protection of the existing dark arts.
