1. The early fire detection system, developed at TSU and the Institute of Atmospheric Optics, SB RAS, is a set of base stations that analyze the state of the atmosphere for the content of a number of gases and aerosols characteristic of natural fires. Scientists of Tomsk State University received a patent for the system.



2. In Russia, the sCaptcha service has been created, which checks that the actions on the site are performed by a person, and not by a computer program, the press service of the NTI Platform reports. As noted, the system is more efficient than ordinary CAPTCHA: in most cases, a robot can recognize text protection in 0.05 seconds, while sCaptcha protection is more difficult to recognize - there are no products to bypass it, and it is too expensive to create them.



3. Russian developers have created a technology for human identification based on the individual structure of the network of venous vessels of the palm. This was reported to RT by the press service of the NTI Platform (National Technology Initiative). The developer is the Yekaterinburg company Biosmart.



4. Scientists from Togliatti State University (TSU) have discovered a new method for the production of porous metals from magnesium and its alloys. The advantages of the new material are low weight, high strength and excellent damping properties.



5. The launch of the Nauka multifunctional laboratory module (MLM) to the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled for July 21. This was announced by the general director of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin.
