The actor from “Sherlock Holmes” Vladimir Tatosov has passed away

This is reported by the radio station “Moscow Speaks” with reference to the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Culture Elena Drapeko. The deputy noted that the actor had an oncological disease, which worsened against the background of the coronavirus. “In real life, he was an absolutely wonderful storyteller, very cheerful, very cheerful.

Solovyov said that his media refused accreditation for Putin’s press conference

The annual press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin was held in Moscow on December 23. Journalist Vladimir Solovyov told the Daily Storm that his media “Solovyov LIVE” wanted to get to the event, but he was denied accreditation to meet with the head of state. Some of the “journalists” who came to the meeting seemed strange to the TV presenter: Shnurov attended a press conference “out of boredom,” and Sobchak came there with a personal cameraman because she was “an important person.” “Solovyov LIVE” submitted [an application for accreditation], but they said, “Guys, sorry, not this time.” Well, I can understand, because there were a lot of us in one form or another,” Solovyov said. Solovyov admitted that the refusal of accreditation did not offend him, because journalists from VGTRK, of which he is also a person, managed to get to the event: “Pavel Zarubin worked there, but I

Scientists will search for aliens using laser “spies”

If we assume that somewhere in space there is an intelligent civilization similar to a human one, then, most likely, it is also trying to detect life outside its planet. It is likely that it sends laser signals to the universe, but until recently scientists could not detect such messages due to the lack of the necessary tools. However, the situation has finally changed. According to the University of Hawaii, two fundamentally new devices detecting laser signals were recently installed on the top of the Haleakala volcano. They will work together with similar instruments installed at the Robert Ferguson California Observatory in Sonoma. Together, these scanners will explore the sky in the hope of detecting powerful laser pulses sent by an extraterrestrial civilization. Unlike the previous SETI project, which searches for strange radio signals, this optical network is ready to detect artificially created light signals. It is quite logical that “advanced
