Chernyshenko in Innopolis: personnel with 'digital skills' to determine everything
University rectors are told to go through the assessment screen and train a million IT specialists. And Innopolis obtains a new high status. The vaccine of mass digitalisation in the training of personnel for the Russian economy was prescribed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko at an off-site working meeting that finished late on 6 March in Innopolis near Kazan. The meeting brought together rectors of 500 Russian universities. Chernyshenko told them to urgently train a million IT specialists. But first, the rectors will go through a mass system of competence assessment — a comprehensive assessment.

If bacteria band together, they can survive for years in space

Dead outer microbes protect inner ones in clumps attached to the International Space Station

Outer space is not friendly to life. Extreme temperatures, low pressure and radiation can quickly degrade cell membranes, destroy DNA and kill any life-forms that somehow find themselves in the void.

The quantum Hall effect continues to reveal its secrets to mathematicians and physicists

A transformative experiment is yielding fresh insights 40 years after the effect’s discovery — and energizing transdisciplinary collaborations.

At a lecture in 1939, Paul Dirac said that “pure mathematics and physics are becoming ever more closely connected”. He went on to say that the two subjects might unify, with “every branch of pure mathematics then having its physical application”.

A giant underground motion sensor in Germany tracks Earth’s wobbles

A giant underground motion sensor in Germany has taken its first measurements of Earth’s spin and tilt. The machine’s measurements could help ensure the accuracy of GPS navigation. Although researchers are still getting the machine’s accuracy up to snuff, their observations could someday keep GPS navigation working reliably on devices like smartphones.

Supporting the chemistry community

The Chemists’ Community Fund – formerly the Benevolent Fund – has been helping people for 100 years.

Even before the full implications of the Covid-19 outbreak were being felt in Europe, Chemists’ Community Fund manager Anna Dearden had begun to reach out to members in south-east Asia. Now the pandemic is global, it’s clear that there will be serious long and short term impacts on many members.

Astronomers Make Incredibly Rare Detection of Earth-Like Planet 25,000 Light-Years Away

There may be multitudes of Earth-like planets sprinkled throughout the Milky Way galaxy, but they are not so easy to find. To date, only around a third of the over 4,000 exoplanets found and confirmed are rocky - and most of those are within a few thousand light-years of Earth.

The sun is less magnetically active than similar stars

The sun is less magnetically active than similar stars. Why our star seems so different from its stellar kin is a mystery

A census of stars similar to the sun shows that our own star is less magnetically active than others of its kind, astrophysicists report in the May 1 Science. The result could support the idea that the sun is in a “midlife crisis,” transitioning into a quieter phase of life. Or, alternatively, it could mean that the sun has capacity for much more magnetic oomph than it’s shown in the past.
