The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) being built in France is a joint project involving scientists from the EU, USA, Russia, India, South Korea and Japan. The construction of the facility launched twelve years ago will be completed only in 2025.
Last week billions of insects descended upon the city. The swarms are so large that they are seen even from space.
Researchers from the University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO University) proposed adding a new ingredient to sausages: chitin extracted from locusts.
The mission will begin before the end of this month. The launch vehicle will take off from the Cape Canaveral site in Florida. The Mars rover will come to the Red Planet in February 2021.

The Universe resembles a web: most of it is empty, while matter is collected into small clusters, with large abysses separating them.
If the undertaking is a success, the European Space Agency will get construction material capable to store solar energy.
The discovery has enormous potential in robotics, microelectronics and related fields.
As it turns out, Homo sapiens actively crossbreed not only with Neanderthal and Denisova hominins but also with other unknown to science proto-men. Their genes predominantly discovered among populations of South-East Asia.
