"Sputnik V" is an important, but not the main scientific achievement of modern Russia


After the British medical journal The Lancet recognized the effectiveness of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, many Western media called it the main achievement of our science since the days of the USSR. However, this is not quite true.


Russia takes an active part in international scientific projects, many of which simply would not have been implemented without us. For example, the Russian-German observatory Spektr-RG, launched into space in 2019, has already discovered dozens of previously unknown objects. We are also making a huge contribution to ExoMars' European mission to explore our Red Neighbor. The French project ITER and even the Large Hadron Collider could not have done without Russia. In the first case, we produce complex and expensive parts for the reactor, and in the second, super-powerful magnets.

However, our country is not limited to participation in international projects. Russia has its own achievements, which include the most powerful neutron reactor PIK, the superconducting collider in Dubna, the most powerful laser for research in high energy density physics, as well as the Siberian ring photon source (SKIF). And this is what already exists in the gland.

In addition to all of the above, our scientists annually make many discoveries, making a huge contribution to world science. Thus, Sputnik V is undoubtedly an important, but not the main scientific achievement of Russia.

    This is a really cool and outstanding achievement of Russian science. Like the Sputnik V vaccine.

    I sit, brothers, somehow with an African,
    And he, imagine, and says to me:
    "It's cold to swim in Russia,
    And that's why it's an unsightly view. "

    But, I say, we make rockets
    And they blocked the Yenisei,
    And also in the field of ballet
    We are ahead, I say, of the entire planet.


    Then we hit three hundred,
    And he, imagine, and says to me:
    "In Russian villages they don't dance twist,
    And that's why it's an unsightly view. "

    Then they filled it all with champagne
    He says: "In general, who are you?
    I, - he says, - an African heir ".
    I say: "Technologist Petukhov".

    Imbued, he says, with the best feeling
    Open, he says, your main secret to me.
    Please say real art
    In our century, more than a hundred missiles.

    I'm afraid that in international projects Russia is held as a free supplier of advanced Soviet technologies and successful design solutions ...
    But, the desire to jump out of his pants, in an attempt to please the West, will not save the current "leaders" from terrible reprisals, in the style of the destruction of Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein. The West will also seriously get rich on this.
    It's just that the time has not yet come when the "elite" will finally begin to regret the missed opportunities.
    But it will be too late ...

      - My plus to you ...
      - But personally, I would make a small correction ...
      - Today Russia is no longer interesting to the West ... as a "free supplier of advanced Soviet technologies and successful design solutions" ... - Everything that they could ... - they have already "shaken off" for a cheap price ...
      - And today Russia continues to try to "jump out of its pants, in an attempt to please and please China in everything" ... - But Russia is becoming more and more not very interesting for China either ... as "a free supplier of advanced Soviet technologies and successful constructive solutions "..; although Russia practically for free (for Chinese junk ... - clothing and technical) supplies China with modern weapons and secret technologies ...
      - My plus ...
