    The Bison of Soviet and Russian science, the creators of the country's industrial power, are slowly leaving.
    Will the current generation of EGists be able to replace them and worthily bear the authority of Russian science? Sadly ... But the hope warms that he managed to educate the successors of his work, because not only out of respect, he continued to work as a consultant at the enterprise. I bow my head low ... soldier
