Sudden failure of engineering structures always happens. One of the earliest references to this relates to the XV century, when during the construction of the Assumption Cathedral in Moscow collapsed its support. But the percentage of damage was not great, and every time could explain their shortcomings in construction or other reasons, usually uncertain, but seemingly reliable. First sharp increase in damage occurs during the development of the railways — in the middle of the XIX century, and is associated with arising in connection with this increase in construction. Percentage of

Neurobiological war with the brain

No matter what development or even what a discovery, especially a revolutionary new and promising, immediately attracts the attention of not only the general public, and the military. At the moment, there are the first experimental samples of systems to control the vehicle (wheelchair) with the signals of the brain. At the head "driver" is attached some electrodes, a signal that goes to the host computer, where it is converted into a form that is easily understood units strollers. Argues that before the creation of a similar system to control the car or even an airplane remained a matter of
