1. Scientists from Skoltech, together with colleagues from the Karl and Franz University of Graz and the Kanzelhoch Observatory, as well as from the European Space Flight Control Center, have developed a method and software called RESONANCE for predicting the radio flux from the Sun 1-24 months in advance. RESONANCE will be used to improve the accuracy of satellite orbit estimation, satellite return services, space debris modeling and spacecraft collision avoidance.



2. The Russian nuclear space tug ’Zeus‘ with a megawatt power propulsion system can be used in the country's air defense system to track aircraft and target designation to weapons, it follows from the materials of the Research Center. As follows from the materials of the research center, the nuclear tug will be able to illuminate air targets from orbit, and information about the detected objects will be transmitted to air defense systems.



3. Russian scientists, together with colleagues from Germany and the Czech Republic, have deciphered the mechanism underlying the activation of an orange carotenoid protein, a cyanobacterial photoreceptor. The results of the work open up prospects for the development of new light-controlled systems and biomaterials.



4. Scientists of the St. Petersburg Federal Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences have created a digital complex for airports, which connects various services and special cargo transport(car lifts) serving aircraft into a single intelligent space. the developed system can significantly improve the efficiency of the airport ground infrastructure.



5. Russia will not be able to solve the problem of an innovative breakthrough without the involvement of leading foreign scientists; therefore, they need special, simplified entry conditions. This opinion was expressed on Thursday by the Director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research(JINR), Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Grigory Trubnikov during the parliamentary hearings ’Scientific human resources of the country: state, development trends and tools for growth.‘
