It is about time to reflect on the year and recall the most memorable events in Russian and world physics
The atomic clock that the modern satellite navigation can hardly manage without has a lot of non-obvious applications: from a search for dark matter and a drift of fundamental constants to Earth’s gravitational potential mapping. Head of the Complex Quantum Systems Optics Laboratory of P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Ksenia Khabarova has told the Scientific Russia portal about the purpose of the atomic clock and its working principle
Observations and calculations show that the Milky Way will collide with its nearest neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy, in about four billion years. What happens to galaxies during a merger? What effect will the future merger have on the Solar System?
