1. Scientists from TSU and the Institute of High Current Electronics SB RAS(ISE SB RAS) presented the results of an almost 20-year study that proves that excilamps(radiation sources based on transitions of excimer and exciplex molecules) developed in Tomsk are capable of inactivating bacteria and viruses.



2, Russian scientists reached the conclusion: some supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies can be "portals" to distant regions of the universe. Related research was published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Society. According to experts, the spacecraft can theoretically pass through such "portals" or "wormholes", but the high level of radiation in them will not give the crew a chance to survive.



3. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed an order approving the program of fundamental scientific research until 2030. The total amount of funding will amount to over 2.1 trillion rubles, the government's press service said on Saturday.



4. Veliky Novgorod became the first Russian city where a modern intellectual system was installed - the development of the resident of the Skolkovo Foundation, the Tyumen company OKAS. The robot is connected to the regional hotline for combating coronavirus infection. For 10 days of work in test mode, the virtual operator received more than 2,500 calls, providing Novgorod residents with the opportunity to call the call center and get advice on COVID-19



5. Dmitry Chernyshenko instructed the Ministry of Science and Higher Education to prepare proposals as soon as possible for a plan of major events dedicated to the Year of Science and Technology, which was announced by the President of Russia in 2021.
