1. The 19th International Conference "Aviation and Cosmonautics" will be held online from 23 to 27 November. The event will take place within the framework of the VII International week of aerospace technologies "AerospaceScienceWeek". Organizer - Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University).



2. Scientists from the Institute of Chemistry of Solutions of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences have obtained a new electrically controlled polymer using an original way of organizing its structure. This material has demonstrated extremely high electrorheological efficiency. The most promising fields of application of electrorheological polymers include robotics, active vibration isolation, and bionic technologies.



3. Based on the technological solutions of three residents of the Skolkovo Foundation at once - Ice-Innovations, STC MZTA and Unicorn - for the first time in Russia a biosafety environment has been created in a residential complex in the east of Moscow. The system combats the spread and transmission of viruses and improves the overall level of comfort.



4. Scientists of the Samara National Research University named after Academician S.P. Korolev have started developing a cryogenic engine that will use liquid nitrogen or liquefied natural gas as fuel. It will take three to four years to build the engine. According to the developers, it can be used in the future on environmentally friendly vehicles for specially protected natural areas, as well as on special purpose unmanned aerial vehicles. The latter will be able to remain invisible to infrared trackers, leaving no heat traces in the sky - unlike aircraft that use combustion engines or electric motors to create thrust



5. The Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft, the crew of which consists of two Russians and an American, was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome. The flight to the International Space Station should take a record three hours, and docking with the ISS is expected at approximately 11:52 Moscow time.
