«The facility with a total area of 81 hectares is created to preserve and study the paleontological graveyard of Jurassic dinosaurs — the only one of a kind in the world — in the narrow called Kulinda,» the press service said.

In 2010, Sofia Sinitsa, a paleontologist and Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences discovered several remains of a dinosaur in the narrow (Russian 'pad' - падь) Culinda. In the course of further research, scientists, among whom were not only Russians, but also experts from the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, described a new kind of dinosaurs, calling it a culindadrome.

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.
