It works fine, even a little better than expected

Space Radio Telescope Interferometer "Spektr-R" ("Radioastron"), put into high-elliptical orbit on July 18, spent the first test observations of the space object. This object has become one of the most powerful sources of galactic radio — the remnants of supernova Cassiopeia A (Cas A).

Climate recognized the inevitable apocalypse

Most scientists attribute the increasing trend in recent years, natural disasters in the world with the effect of global warming. It is believed that a significant contribution to the increase in global temperature brings humanity. However, there are also scientists, ready to disprove the popular theory of the effects of human activities on the global climate. American researchers, representing the State Museum at the University of Nebraska, said that the Earth is currently experiencing the impact of a natural rhythm.
