The collapse comes on all fronts: the concentration decreases (down 2% on the day), thickness — also, now it is 2.8 millimeters. But every day the protective cover, which protects humans from harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, becomes thinner (2-3% per day). To the previous anti-record in 1979 left some six-tenths of a
