“Union” docked with the ISS – BFM.Ru

the station delivered a new crew

docking of manned spacecraft (WPK) “Soyuz TMA-13M” from the International Space Station successfully held in the automatic mode, the official Website Роскосмоса.

rocket “Soyuz-FG» c crew on board was launched yesterday in 23.57 MSK. from the cosmodrome “Baikonur”. Through 528 seconds of flight TPK “Soyuz TMA-13M” cleanly separated from the third stage rocket orbiting artificial satellite.

After 6 hours of flight manned transport spacecraft “Soyuz TMA-13M” delivered to the International Space Station (ISS), members of the new long expedition.

The crew consisting of commander Roscosmos cosmonaut Maxim Suraeva, flight engineers – Astronaut Reid Wiseman (NASA) and Alexandra Gersten (ESA) feels good.

Tomb corrected humpback – Russian planet

legendary in its obscurity King Richard III was not a hunchback, researchers found

descendants of the last king of the dynasty of the British Yorks (a branch of the Plantagenets) – Richard III – significantly distorted his appearance. Scientists from the University of Cambridge and Leicester, examining found two years ago the remains of the monarch, refuted the conventional version, according to which he had a hump and other severe physical flaws. The results of the будут published in the Lancet on May 31.

remains of a man whose death in 1485 put an end to the war of the Roses, archaeologists found only in the autumn of 2012. According to legend, who died in battle, Richard III supporters prevailed the Lancaster was buried without honors at the Franciscan monastery. According to one version, in the XVI century the body was thrown into the river, on the other – the monks saved it.

Following the second version, in August 2012 a group of British archaeologists began excavations on the site of the municipal car park in Leicester and soon found the ruins monastery, and then the deceased monarch. That the body belongs to Richard III, confirmed the genetic examination. Tomb King opened scientists previously unknown details of his death.

As it turned out, the monarch was buried in a hurry and very unceremoniously: his body was buried without a coffin and shroud even in a narrow shallow grave, not suitable for the growth of the king. Hands of the deceased were related. It was also found that Richard III received several wounds in his last battle of Bosworth, and after the death of his detractors mocked corpse (historical chronicles knew that naked body of the dead were taken to the streets of Leicester).

That The study also confirmed that Richard III was suffering from scoliosis. Later, in September 2013, scientists from the universities of Cambridge and Leicester сообщили, that the life of the monarch was infected roundworm Ascaris. The latter was rather a compliment royal chefs: getting to know the time of a full range of meat parasites, including tapeworms. That King “caught” only roundworms, says quality thermal processing of food.

Appearance monarch, however, remained an enigma: the earliest portrait of him extant, was written 35 years after his death. By the time the new Tudor dynasty (founded by King Henry VII of the House of Lancaster) already being engaged in “debunking the cult of personality.” Loser Richard III court historians have described as a bloody tyrant, disfigured many ailments. The image of “lopsided toad” and “hunchback” entrenched him after William Shakespeare’s play “Richard III».

To confirm or disprove this legend, researchers from the Universities of Cambridge and Leicester held 3D-reconstruction of the spine of the monarch. The diagnosis of “scoliosis” confirmed: scientists have documented a deviation to the right of the ridge at 65-85 degrees and twisting spiral. However, as noted in the work, it was a “balanced bend”: Richard III would not be difficult to conceal under clothing ailment or armor.

No hump, no lameness, which attributed to the King descendants, the researchers found. The head and neck of the monarch were oriented vertically. Judging by the participation of Richard III in many battles, not flaws hampered his movements. The only thing that could be seen outside observer, this small difference in shoulder height and length of the housing relative to small hands and feet.

Richard III rules just three years – from 1483 to 1485 minutes. During this time he managed to survive two major uprisings, but lost to Henry Tudor at the Battle of Bosworth – technically, the penultimate in the War of the Roses, but the outcome has already been decided. Henry VII had not formally rights to claim the throne, so the formation of special importance attached “correct” version of his victory over Richard. Even chroniclers of life in praising him as a just ruler and the author conceived laws later radically changed its position.

Discovered in 2012, the body of Richard III is захоронено in the Cathedral of Leicester, despite requesting descendants move to the grave “family nest Dynasty” – York.

Russian scientists have become laureates Kavli – of

Kavli Foundation and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters объявили scientific names of the winners of the Kavli Prize in 2014. Among the awardees included Academician Алексей A. Starobinskii , working at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences Landau and Андрей Linda D. , now at Stanford University.

Kavli Prize was founded in 2007 by an American entrepreneur and philanthropist Fred Kavli Norwegian origin (Fred Kavli, 1927-2013). It is awarded every two years for research in three areas: astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience. Committees to select candidates in each of these sciences, composed of scientists of the Academy of Sciences of China, the French Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck Society, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society. Then the candidates selected by this committee, approved by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

Alexei Starobinsky and Andrei Linde, shared the prize in astrophysics with the American researcher Alan Guth (Alan Harvey Guth). The award was given to scientists for creating inflationary universe model. This cosmological hypothesis, which has recently received significant evidence was devoted to one of the recent лекций project “Public Lectures of».

Prize in neuroscience got Brenda Milner (Brenda Milner) of the Canadian McGill University, John O’Keefe (John O’Keefe) from University College London and Marcus Reychl ( Marcus Raichle) from Washington University in St. Louis for the discovery of specialized networks of the brain associated with memory and cognitive abilities.

For achievement in the field of nanoscience prize awarded Thomas Ebbesen (Thomas Ebbesen) from the University of Louis Pasteur University of Strasbourg and Stefan Hell (Stefan Hell) Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max Planck Society and John Pendry (Sir John Pendry) from Imperial College in London. These scientists have found a way to produce images of objects smaller than 200 nanometers using visible light.

Awards laureates will be awarded to the King of Norway Harald V 9 September 2014 in Oslo. The laureates will receive gold medals, diplomas and cash prizes.
