Russia launched its superconducting collider


Last week the first stage of the NICA project was launched at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna, Moscow Region). We are talking about the Russian superconducting collider, the construction of which started in 2013 and should be completed by 2022.


The difference between our collider and the Large Hadron Collider, located in Geneva, is that NICA is less powerful and is aimed at lower energies. So, if in the European version, because of its colossal power, the particles fly through each other, then the collider in the science city Dubna allows you to get superdense matter when they collide. Studies of this substance (quark-gluon plasma) should subsequently help scientists find the zone of its transition from one state to another.

What is it for? It is believed that it was from the quark-gluon plasma that our Universe consisted at the tenth microsecond after the Big Bang. Therefore, thanks to NICA, our scientists will be able to "go back" more than 13 billion years ago and look to the place where time itself just began to exist.

However, our collider also has practical value. NICA will test new types of materials and electronics that are resistant to space radiation and are required for deep space exploration. In addition, research in the field of radiobiology, as well as the processing of nuclear waste will be carried out here.

There are only four such projects in the world today. At the same time, it is here in Dubna that the production of unique superconducting magnets is located, which are the main elements of the collider.

    the collider in the science city of Dubna makes it possible to obtain superdense matter when they collide.

    And not uh-uh ... bang? what

    What if they create a new universe, what will become of ours?

    Such costly projects are possible when everything is good and there is nowhere to spend money. In the United States, not so long ago, they conceived to build the world's largest collider, but they stopped, although many billions have already been invested, and there is a huge foundation pit ... Why was it built in the Russian Federation, it seems that money was cut a lot and constantly, and, as always, to no avail , yes, with sentences about a bright future ...

      And do not say)))
      These scientists, for their incomprehensible theories (incomprehensible to us), require themselves very expensive "toys", no consciousness. Could, as before, or say mathematicians now make their discoveries "at the tip of a pencil."
      It would be much cheaper for them to buy pencils, and for especially talented ones, you can even give out felt-tip pens)

      And then ish that they came up with something like modern physics requires practical experiments for the experimental verification of theories on special expensive scientific instruments.

      seems to cut money a lot and constantly

      why thieves say that there are only thieves around, and drug addicts - that there are only drug addicts around - explains to us such a subject as psychology

      And it would be understandable - if you were a policeman and always rotated in this ge .. But I think you see thieves and think about them or schemes and cuts - not for work

        Replica. By poking strangers. it looks like you are closer to thieves, but such in another segment of crime and in other specialties do not poke around and do not know, with all the consequences ...

          I am pleased with our sad and patient opposition, which was created to whine about cutting on the Internet and endure for decades

          Count if we had those in the opposition who can do something?)
          So I read you, another oppositionist from the Internet, and I understand that everything is going according to plan.

            Here, constructive opposition is necessary for the statehood of the Russian Federation, but it is being toughly removed and it is not there - for 15 days in bulk, Russian patriots for 7 years for the same accusations), and what you call oppositionists are lured mongrels to create visibility ... But this is for you it's hard to understand ...

              I find it difficult to understand men who endure and whine for 20+ years. this is unnatural.
              In 1991, 1993, 1996, the miracle of the elections + the war in Chechnya - suited all our patient opposition, but then Putin came and that means enough to endure?
              Or did you hold a meeting during these difficult times for our Motherland? Maybe he wrote posts on the Internet? And if you didn’t rally and didn’t write, as it is now, then everything suited you?

              but what you call oppositionists are lured mongrels

              well, it's the authorities' fault, the fact that they have oppositionists (including sad emo-commies) - filth fed by the West - which the people of the Russian women have assigned to the place where she is now)

              Just don't say that the opposition was banned from YouTube and the Internet, where it feeds its herd with memes and vidos) and therefore no one knows about this dirt - because Putin has cleared the political field

              I know all this dirt. She climbs into the "recommended" - although I clean it out from all my channels, receiving information, but the West has decided - it means that all of Russia sees this dirt. The invisible hand of the information market, not otherwise

              That constructive opposition is necessary for the statehood of the Russian Federation

              Well, as you find it, show me one.

                briefly: V.V. Putin has not been seen since 2010, only dummies are shown who have nothing to do with the real V. Putin, except for small stature. (Putin died of ridge cancer in 2008, therefore, the divorce from his wife is .Putin and other circus with Siberian Cranes, for a diversion). Western enemies do not make a howl about this, so they are satisfied with a false Putin, or rather a clique hiding behind this image. That noodles are being hanged about strengthening the army, and the enemies are all around, the clique itself has created such a state, and the main thing is that the state is weak and does not get stronger, and the army is to defend against the people (the second army, - the National Guard was created for what?) ... there is no real opposition to stop this plunder of Russia and enforce the laws and put everything in the Russian Federation upside down ... But you don't understand, soap and noodles have shut up everything ...

                  wassat sorry I can't make a diagnosis. so would you help me

                  PS As you endured for 20 years, you will continue to endure - I give you the installation. The quality of the material is.

                    What a Jew can answer to a bitter truth is only untrue and generally crazy statements, otherwise his brains turn over from such reality ...
