”That we live in a post-truth society today, and that we don't care, that we have lost empathy. We have stopped caring for each other in a way. We have stopped thinking long-term and sustainable. And that's something that goes much deeper than just climate crisis deniers.”

”But I mean the climate crisis is not the only problem here. It is just a symptom of a larger crisis. Like the loss of biodiversity, acidification of the oceans, and loss of fertile soil, and so on. And these things will not just be solved by stopping our emissions of greenhouse gases. The earth is a very complex system. If you take one thing and put it out of balance then that will have an impact on things beyond our comprehension. And that goes for equality as well. Humans are part of nature, and if we are not doing well, then nature is not doing well, because we are nature.”

And just to be clear once again: I - nor anyone in connection to me - have or will not receive any payment for this. B-Reel Films will dedicate half of the film's revenues to my foundation and all of that will be donated to organizations and projects fighting for a sustainable world, defending nature and supporting people already facing the worst impacts of the climate- and ecological crisis.

Представление 3D-модели древней Пальмиры

20 августа 2020 года в Санкт-Петербурге была представлена завершенная 3D-модель древней Пальмиры, являющаяся самой точной и детальной цифровой моделью современного состояния памятника в мире, созданной Институтом истории материальной культуры Российской академии наук (ИИМК РАН).

Для создания трехмерной цифровой модели состояния памятника и фиксации полученных им повреждений в результате действий боевиков террористической группировки ИГИЛ (запрещена в России), в 2016 и 2019 годах Институтом истории материальной культуры Российской академии наук (ИИМК РАН) под руководством заместителя директора ИИМК РАН Натальи Соловьевой были проведены экспедиции, участие в которых принимали сотрудники Государственного Эрмитажа и военные топографы.

Фотофиксацией архитектурных остатков храма Бела с целью уточнения создаваемой ими трехмерной модели храма в 2019 году занимались сотрудники Архитектурной мастерской Максима Атаянца. Обеспечивали съёмку специалисты ГК «Беспилотные системы».

Камеральные работы по построению 3D-модели по данным экспедиций проведены сотрудниками ИИМК РАН и группой компаний Geoscan.

Деятельность двух экспедиций позволила получить высокоточные метрические трехмерные модели местности и расположенных на ней памятников архитектуры – храма Бэла, храма Баалшамина, триумфальной арки, колонны Зенобии, некрополей и Погребальной башни, лагеря Диоклетиана, крепости Фахр-Ад-Дина и Археологического музея Тадмора, а также документально зафиксировать все разрушения и повреждения. Съемки выявили многочисленные ямы грабительских раскопок и окопы.

В этот день не имеющая аналогов в мире 3D-модель древней Пальмиры была передана в Департамент древностей и музеев Сирийской Арабской Республике для возможности восстановления в будущем с помощью новых технологий.

WITH FOREWORD BY APOLLO 11 ASTRONAUT MICHAEL COLLINS

It is truly the greatest honor of my professional life to share this cover with you @astromichaelcollins

I am beyond humble and grateful and cannot wait to share your story and your words.

Thank you for everything you have done to in advance humanity in space and where we are capable of going. Everything we do in space is owed to the achievements you and our first space explorers made.

Please help the millions affected by the flooding in India and Bangladesh!
Countless people, particularly in the Global South, are already suffering the devastating impacts of the climate crisis.

Millions of people in South Asia have been severely affected by recent flooding, at a time when many had already lost so much from Covid-19 and Cyclone Amphan.

In India, more than 6.8 million people have been affected by recent severe monsoon floods. Meanwhile, close to one third of Bangladesh is already suffering flooding, with 2.8 million people affected. Although floods occur annually in these areas, the climate crisis is increasing their frequency and intensity, with current flooding among the worst in years.

This flooding has also come during a period of overlapping crises facing communities in India and Bangladesh. In March, Cyclone Amphan destroyed crops, infrastructure and more than 260,000 homes in both countries, while a Covid-19 lockdown has contributed to over a third of Bangladesh's population dropping under the poverty line.

My foundation will therefore donate €100.000 (from the prize money received from the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity) to these NGOs - working tirelessly and in desperate need of funds for flood relief work in India and Bangladesh - BRAC, Goonj, Action Aid India and Action Aid Bangladesh.

International media are largely ignoring this devastation, but we must do everything possible to directly support those suffering on the ground, who are in desperate need of resources. I am incredibly privileged to be in a position to be able to donate such sums of money through my foundation, and we are supporting these organisations to make sure it reaches communities affected by the flooding as soon as possible. If you are able, please consider donating to the relief effort. Visit their websites for details. Even the smallest amount can help.

On this day in 1986, the first genetically altered vaccine for humans was approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This opened a new era for vaccine production.

The new vaccine was intended to protect humans from infection by the hepatitis B virus. It was developed partly by Nobel Laureate Baruch Blumberg, who shared the 1976 Medicine Prize for the discovery of the cause of Hepatitis B infection.

Since then, the vaccine against the disease has helped saved the lives of millions.

School strike week 100!

100 weeks ago I never would have believed that I’d still be doing this today...

Since then, a lot has happened. Many millions have taken to the streets to continue the decades-long and never-ending fight for climate- and environmental justice.

But since then, the world has also emitted over 80Gt of CO2.
We have lost yet another 2 crucial years to inaction, and the climate- and ecological crisis has still never once been treated as a crisis. The changes and level of awareness needed are still nowhere in sight.

These are historical times, what we do or don’t do right now will define the rest of our lives as well as the lives of our children and grandchildren. So spend your time wisely.

We all have a role to play, but the bigger your platform the bigger your responsibility. And the bigger your carbon footprint the bigger your moral duty. It’s time to #FaceTheClimateEmergency

And remember; no one is too small to make a difference

On 14 July 1867, Alfred Nobel demonstrated dynamite for the first time at the Merstham Quarry, Surrey in southern England.

In May 1867, Nobel took out a British patent for dynamite. The demonstration in July took place in order to convince authorities and potential users of dynamite's safety. During this demonstration Nobel set fire to sticks of dynamite, threw packets of the explosives from a cliff, and detonated it in various ways to demonstrate both what it could do and its safety.

Have you heard about the Cherenkov effect?

In certain media the speed of light is lower than in a vacuum and particles can travel faster than light. One result of this was discovered in 1934 by Pavel Cherenkov, when he saw a bluish light around a radioactive preparation placed in water. Igor Tamm and Il´ja Frank explained the phenomenon in 1937. On their way through a medium, charged particles disturb electrons in the medium. When these resume their position, they emit light. Normally this does not produce any light that can be observed, but if the particle moves faster than light, a kind of backwash of light appears.

The three Soviet scientists Pavel Cherenkov, Il´ja Frank and Igor Tamm were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 1958 "for the discovery and the interpretation of the Cherenkov effect."

This was the first time the Physics Prize was awarded to Soviet scientists.

It was said that Charlie Chaplin was the only person in Hollywood Albert Einstein wanted to meet. In 1931, he got his chance to talk to the actor at the premiere of the film 'City Lights'.

Einstein: "What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!"

Chaplin: "True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say."
