1. Serial production of printers using the technology of multibeam electron-beam additive manufacturing from metal wire has been launched in Russia. The new technology, developed at the Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science, SB RAS(IPPM SB RAS), will allow to create products up to several meters in size from metal wire with a productivity that is impossible for other 3D technologies - up to 10 kg/h, depending on the selected material.



2. Scientists at the Ural Federal University(UrFU, Yekaterinburg) synthesized ferrogels with different concentrations of magnetic nano- and microparticles. Ferrogels help deliver drugs through blood vessels and replace damaged bone and cartilage tissues. In addition, they can be monitored in the body using ultrasound detection.



3. The Russian Academy of Sciences and the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic signed a long-term agreement on cooperation in the field of research activities. RAS will provide scientific and methodological guidance and will stimulate the development of various programs and projects that the republic plans to be engaged in. The issues of scientific development of recreational medicine, the agricultural industry, domestic tourism, the IT sphere will become the main.



4. The Russian government has given permission to use the military infrastructure to launch the Gonets-M spacecraft into orbit. "The decision will allow attracting additional extra-budgetary funds to the industry, as well as strengthening Russia's position in the world market for space services. The launch of six Gonets-M satellites from the Plesetsk cosmodrome will take place in several stages - on September 28, as well as in November-December.



5. A group of researchers from Tomsk Polytechnic University are working on the creation of a biological autonomous module in which plants can be grown in space. The orbital greenhouse will be fully automated. Robotic systems will be engaged in planting, caring for space beds and harvesting. The area of ​​the space garden will be 30 square meters. This spring already received the first harvest of radishes, strawberries and chlorella grown by robots, and scientists are expecting harvesting such crops at the ISS in a few years.
