Stepashin`s dismissal would introduce serious alterations and cause a two- or three-week delay of the session.

PROF. LASHIN`S PROJECTS: FANTASY OR FANCY?
 
Attention of the visitors of the fair-exhibition "Science, Education, New Technologies" held in Irkutsk was drawn by a model of a set-up for chemically polluted water purification. The fundamental process in it includes the use of an accelerator. It`s easy to imagine the difficulties met by the authors of this concept while embodying it. The decisive role in the realisation of the project belongs to Prof. Anatoly Lashin, the director of the Institute of Electron Beam Technologies of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
 
LIGHT OUT OF THE WATERS OF THE WORLD OCEAN
 
One of the insistent problems in late 20th and early 21st century is the conservation of the diversity of biological objects that inhabit our planet. Excessive anthropogeneous impact on natural objects leads to changing of number and - not rarely - complete disappearance of some biological species bringing a threat to biosphere equilibrium.
