Russian theoretical physicist Yevgeny Avronin kept notes that were released pertaining his lifelong work in nuclear weapons. Avronin was a theoretical physicist, nuclear engineer and Scientific Director at the Russian Federal Nuclear Centre (RFNC). He was a co-developer of the RDS-37, the first Soviet two-stage thermonuclear bomb. He died in 2018.
Rosatom released declassified information pertaining to German nationals who were working on nuclear weapons in Nazi Germany and after World War II came to the Soviet Union. Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corporation, is a Russian state corporation headquartered in Moscow that specializes in nuclear energy. It was founded by Russian president Vladimir Putin in 2007. The document release is the start of celebrations continuing to August 2020 commemorating 75 years of the Russian nuclear industry.
Nobel Prize in Physics is a yearly award given by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences for those who have made the most outstanding contributions for mankind in the field of physics. The 2019 Nobel Prize in physics depends on the atomic physics.
The 2019 Nobel Prize is split between Michel Mayor (University Geneva), Didier Queloz (University of Geneva, University of Cambridge) and James Peebles ( Princeton University) for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star, which is based on the radial velocity method. Also known as Doppler spectroscopy, it is the most effective method for locating extrasolar planets with existing technology.
An American astrophysicist Julian B. Muñoz found a process to study the universe during an earlier era of its formation. Muñoz is a theoretical cosmologist at Harvard. After the Massive Explosion (Big Bang), the universe was hot quark gluon plasma, that cooled during the expansion of space. A gluon is an elementary particle that acts as the exchange particle for the strong force between quarks.
Russia has announced the first functioning prototype of the Quantum Computer. The Quantum computing idea began in the 1980s when physicist Paul Benioff proposed a quantum mechanical model of the Turing machine. The field of quantum computing is closely related to quantum information science, which includes quantum cryptography and quantum communication.
The Russian scientists in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics, Samara National Research University discovered an effective method to deal with space debris. Samara National Research University is one of Russia’s leading engineering and technical institutions. It is located in the City of Samara.
Roskosmos posted recent ideas they’ve received pertaining to moon travel. The Roscosmos is a state corporation for space activities. It is a Russian corporation responsible for a wide range and types of space flights and programs.
A Russian scientist, Alexander Mayboroda, Director of Avanta Consulting in Rostov-On-Don, offered his engineering solutions. He has a myriad of patents pertaining to space. The most recent one being a “Method for Delivering Cargoes into Space and a System for Implementation of Same.” Rostov-on-Don is a port city and the administrative center of Rostov Oblast, the Southern Federal District of Russia.
Russia announced their intention to create an electrode-less plasma rocket engine prototype. The engine will be made by the Russian Kurchatov Institute with a target completion date of 2021. The Kurchatov Institute is one of the leading entities in the field of nuclear energy research and development. It is named after Igor Kurchatov, who was widely known as the director of the Soviet atomic bomb project and one of the top nuclear physicists. Kurchatov is known as the “father of the Soviet atomic bomb” and later, “the father of the Soviet Nuclear Missile.
The Russian military is adopting new radar based on radio-photonic technology. The first prototype has been released this week and is being tested by Russian military personnel. During the 24th International Crimean Conference Microwave & Telecommunication Technology in 2014 the first report on the subject was presented.
This summer Russia suffered multiple tragedies in their defense sector, including the loss of lives on the “Losharik” nuclear submarine. The latest tragedy was an explosion during the Nenoksa Missile Test Site near Severodvink, a region in northern Russia. Both times, highly skilled Russian elite specialists died. The incident at the Russian defense nuclear testing facility claimed the lives of seven people and left others injured. Overall, it is the third incident within a week in the same geographical area.
Space war, or technical warfare is silently being waged all around us. On July 13th, 2019 (this past weekend) the European Union’s (EU’S) Galileo satellite went, or was taken offline. Galileo is owned by the collective European Union, managed and operated by the European Space Agency, and is used for nonmilitary, scientific, and civilian purposes.
