"On November 7, the research expedition ship 'Akademik Fedorov' of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute of Roshydromet [The Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of Russia. - Chrdk] is leaving for the shores of the Antarctic from the port of St. Petersburg," the message said.

The vessel is to deliver 100 expedition members to the shores of the Antarctic, along with more than 1,200 tons of various cargoes, which include 852 tons of diesel fuel, 67 tons of food, scientific equipment, spare parts, and consumables. The voyage will last for 207 days and will be taken in two stages in the Antarctic, each of which will begin in the port of Cape Town.

Russian scientists improved the algorithm for predicting crystal structures

Russian scientists from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), and Samara State Technical University (Samara Polytech) have improved computer algorithm USPEX, which can be used to predict new crystal structures of chemical substances, the Skoltech press service informed on Wednesday.

Russian scientists will place space observation points in the Arctic by 2020

Russian scientists are planning to deploy a network of space observation points in the Nenets Autonomous District (NAO) by 2020. This will allow to monitor the movement of space debris and other objects, said Alexander Rodin, the head of the Applied infrared Spectroscopy Lab at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), on the sidelines of an expert international thematic seminar 'Scenarios for the development of the Arctic regions of Russia', which is currently taking place in Naryan-Mar.

"We do not have [such] ground observation points yet, [that are needed to monitor] the situation in circumpolar orbits, as well as on solar-synchronous, we plan to deploy such an experimental network by 2020. Monitoring of spacecrafts is an extremely important task right now, all space powers are now concerned with it because outer space has ceased to be empty. The problem of space debris and dangerous collisions is very acute, and especially so for the polar zones, since it is there that converge almost all the orbits of the space vehicles, which are on solar-synchronous orbits," Rodin explained.
