«The TSU is already working together with the Hermitage. For two years the scientists have been conducting joint research in the territory of the Republic of Tuva, during which time aerial photography was made of Scythian burial grounds in the Turan-Uyuk Basin, known as the «Valley of the Kings». Scientists surveyed over 20 square kilometres «, said the representative of the press service to the news agency.

TSU archaeologists will use modern equipment to create a 3D model of the entire valley as well as of individual burial mounds and burials. The 3D model will not only have a scientific significance, but it can also become the basis for interactive multimedia exhibitions and virtual museums.

The male-robot «Gagarin», developed at Innopolis, got acquainted with the female-robot «Alisa» (Russan version of the name 'Alice'). He explained that he was named after a cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin and asked if his vis-à-vis was free.

«The robot Gagarin has a list of emotions — surprise, joy, fear, disgust, and anger. Two robots communicated with each other, both have systems of face recognition and expression of emotions,» representatives of Innopolis said to TASS.

They also expressed an opinion that in the future robots endowed with emotions will be able to work in the service sector.

Russian neutron detector will help the Japanese in Fukushima

In the spring of 2017, Japanese research institute Mitsubishi chose a consortium of several scientific divisions of Rosatom to manufacture a highly sensitive neutron detector suitable for operation under extreme conditions of high gamma radiation. The new detector will begin to search for contaminants at Fukushima in the fall of this year, the Russian State Scientific Centre for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics informs.

The size of the detector is less than that of its counterparts, says the message — just two by four centimetres, so that it can be used in the destroyed station «Fukushima-1.» The detector can withstand radiation at 1000 Gy and higher, while the other electronics do not work even when exposed to just a few hundred grays.

The detector will help find where exactly radioactive fuel fragments are accumulated, which will need to be removed later during dismantling of emergency power units of the Japanese nuclear power plant.
