New dark matter detector placed deep underground

A tank of water and a fire extinguisher over 2.4 kilometres (1.5 miles) beneath the surface aims to find dark matter.

COUPP-60 is an underground dark matter experiment consisting of apparatus that includes a large jar containing purified water and CF3I, a chemical found in fire extinguishers. The aim of the detector is to search for signs of dark matter particles. When a particle passes through the detector its energy will produce tiny bubbles in the clear liquid.

“It’s an underground observatory,” explained Fermilab’s Hugh Lippincott, who oversaw the installation of the detector. “So it’s looking for the same thing

Russian Academy of Sciences, scientists have created the world’s most sensitive detector of explosives

Scientists are three institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences have designed and built the world's most sensitive instrument for remote detection of explosives can recognize one molecule of explosive vapor from a million to a distance of 50 meters.

"The prototype device weighs about 600 kilograms and therefore is more for stationary operation in the checkpoints, but if necessary it can drive up to a potentially dangerous objects detected in a public place and turn it into a source of radiation to the desired angle," — said the head of the laboratory of the Institute

Russian neutron device will help discover water on Mars

Developed in Russia device — one of a dozen instruments, which will be equipped with an American rover Curiosity. It is intended to find its water and saturated with mineral high-energy neutrons.

The device, called "Dynamic neutron albedo" (DAN) was created in Lab space gamma spectroscopy of the Space Research Institute (IKI). Leading designer Igor Mitrofanov said that DAN — is the primary means of exploration, if it finds something interesting at a particular point, other devices will help to clarify the situation.

Barguzin big science

Neutrino telescope deployed at depths of Lake Baikal, not only allows you to deal with what is happening in other galaxies, but also launches a new technological directions, find application in various fields — from the oil industry to the Commissar.

Our uazik mastered the sun-drenched white virgin land — an icebound lake Baikal. The space seems endless, but the distance one can see the white-and-blue ridge mountains. Haze hides their base, and it seems that the snow-capped peaks soaring over the lake. Windblown snow drifts — as speed bumps along the way. Some are too deep,

Scientists have shown high precision neutron detector of explosives and narcotics

http://ria.ru/video/20110724/406065479.html Five detectors‘ Dvina-1 ", with high accuracy recognition narcotics and explosives will be before the end of summer in St. Petersburg metro. Supply company will carry out "Neutron Technologies", created on the basis of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. According to the developers, the device has no domestic analogues and significantly superior to foreign ones.

Mobile version of the system for the identification of explosives and narcotics

Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR, Dubna) since 1998, work is underway to study the method of labeled neutrons (MCM) to create explosive detectors (BB) and drugs (HB).

At the entrance to the mass actions today do not pass the metal detector. For the sake of their own protection to have to get used to this procedure, though, as shown by the test, and the newest models allow the error to 0.2%. In other words, when passing two thousand people may well bring as firearms or knives. [

To exclude this possibility, the specialists of the Moscow Research Institute of computer systems to them. MAKartsev and Korean firms Solar Electronic Technology created a mobile metal detector with special software. He does not

Russia’s new radar even see stealth aircraft

New all-altitude detectors allow troops Aerospace Defense (ASD) to detect virtually all types of aerodynamic targets, including those made by "stealth" technology. 

"In their tactical and technical and operational characteristics of all-altitude detector (radar) is beyond the capabilities of previous generations of radar. Radar has a different view modes spaces that allow it to detect almost all types of aerodynamic targets — airplanes, helicopters, cruise missiles (including those made by technology "Stealth") at all altitudes and speeds their applications ", — told reporters on Tuesday, a representative of the press service of the Ministry of Information

In NSU built a prototype detector for dark matter

In the laboratory, cosmology and elementary particle physics, Novosibirsk State University have designed a prototype detector to search for dark materii.Kak the press service of the NSU, the laboratory cosmology and elementary particle was created in 2011 by means of megagranta the Government.

  

Says Alexander Dolgov, head of the Laboratory:

— Made a big step with the construction of the detector. From a small model, we have moved to action prototype. This is a huge job. In the theoretical part of the research, we are working in two directions: cosmology and astrophysics.

Officials of the tender commission checks on a lie detector

Sergei Sobyanin: Two-thirds of the members of tender committees have not passed a lie detector.

"In the conduct of these activities are two-thirds of employees of tender boards were suspended. Occurred to replace them," — said Acting Mayor, stressing that in general have been laid off hundreds of employees.

Metropolitan officials will continue to check on a polygraph, told reporters Acting Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin after a meeting of the Council on combating corruption. The mayor said that he considered such a mechanism to verify the effective and help to make all processes in
