In memoriam
 
The tragedy of October 4 such as the destruction of the plane TU-154 carrying out the flight from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk has become general grief for all of us. The life of 78 persons, among whom there was the remarkable crew of the "Siberia" airline, has broken. Our Academgorodok dwellers have perished too. The Academgorodok is small and thus all of us somehow know each other, both those who live and work in Academgorodok, and those who have left for Israel. Among the perished there are relatives, colleagues, friends of the inhabitants of the Academgorodok.
