In Tatarstan, the fear of mutants

Environmentalists are against the new experiment, which is held in the country. There we decided to irradiate the grain. It grows, it is clear, it is better, you can store a hundred years, pests die themselves. But not facing a lot of insects to all who eat of the bread and then the radioactive grains?

There is not only green, ordinary people are worried that their children will grow tails. Our correspondent Ravil Mukmenov understood, is there any reason to fear (see video)

Big earthquake in Tohoku affected upper atmosphere earlier than Earth

Big earthquake in Tohoku affected upper atmosphere earlier than Earth Natural Disasters

An earthquake of magnitude 9 struck March 11, 2011 on the coast of the Tohoku region in Japan, heralded the world's first integrated global disasters wrought disastrous tsunami, micro-earthquakes and tremors around the world.

Scientists have recently discovered that the earthquake was preceded by fluctuations in the ionosphere, the upper part of the atmosphere. Failures of electrically charged particles in the ionosphere caused by an abnormality in the radio signals between systems through global positioning satellite receivers and repeaters ground stations.

Geophysicist Kosuke Heki analyzed data from more
