The study of the meteorite fragments of Chelyabinsk, in the Ural fallen in February, found that his age is approximately equal to the age of the solar system, said Michael Marov academician of the Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, Vernadsky.
Chelyabinsk meteorite has an age, almost coinciding with the age of the solar system – 4.56 billion years old. This means that in our hands got” the material creation, said Marov, speaking at a conference at the Institute of Space Research.

The ball of bright red, its diameter – 25 cm, was obviously and stand, but she lost.
The first experiments have extended the life of experimental mice.
Tests of the bacteria, due to which people will be able to live up to 100-140 years old, held in Novosibirsk Akademgorodok in the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine, SB RAS.
A unique drug for age identified from the rock, which was found on Mamontova Mountain in Yakutia. The age of rocks, situated in the permafrost zone, has more than a million years. Manages major research Ph.D. Vladimir Repin.

Vulcan minute throws in the upper (now and in the bottom) layers of the atmosphere thousands of tons of ash.

And even if we do not see the finely divided ash hanging over us, it does not mean that it is not there. And to dangle in the air, it will be several more years, gradually settling down and dispersed by wind.
The overall decline in temperature in the northern hemisphere can be quite small – if only to consider solar radiation.

Spraying from aircraft preparations of silver iodide on the eve of May 9 can lead to the fact that Moscow is plus 36 degrees with humidity of 85%, and the Black Sea at this time – plus 23 ° C at a humidity of 50%, – says Andrey Shalygin, Ph.D. , a military scientist. – Nature abhors a vacuum. If in one place something went wrong with its laws and the time of “fallen”, formed “Climate funnel”, and it does involve, for example, the language of hot anticyclone from Asia. The technology developed over decades for military purposes, but now civilian, having heard of reagents, but not understanding the meaning, use the method to “control the weather.
