Russian physicist received an award in 3 million dollars

The Russian scientist Alexander Polyakov became the winner of the largest scientific award in the field of fundamental physics. On the eve of Geneva, a solemn presentation of awards took place: metal balls - symbols of the award - and cash rewards. The size of the prize is twice the Nobel - 3 million dollars.

27-kilometer tube collider rests from trying to recreate the moment of the Big Bang. The magnets and detectors of the Large Hadron Collider are disassembled for modernization, and for physicists it is time to change sweaters and jeans for tuxedos and evening dresses.

Dr. Janotti shared with her six colleagues a special prize of three million dollars for the discovery of the Higgs boson. The last detail of the standard model describing the diversity of the particles of which we are composed has fallen into place. But much more physics is left outside the standard model.

"We will focus on the search for dark matter, which is 25% of the mass of the Universe, try to find out what the nature of the imbalance of matter and antimatter is, whether there are any additional interactions and measurements in the Universe," said Atlas experiment leader Fabiola Janotti.

The world's greatest theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking arrived at the award ceremony.

In understanding the forces governing the universe, a man who is chained to a chair and communicating with the world with the help of a voice synthesizer has advanced further than many. Another laureate of the special award is Stephen Hawking, who explained why one should not be afraid of “black holes” either in space or on Earth.

The “black hole evaporation phenomenon” was really predicted by Stephen Hawking for the first time. And it is directly related to the threat of black holes in the collider. , therefore, they will not pose any threat, "explains the founder of the special prize in fundamental physics, co-owner of Mail.Ru Group, Yuri Milner.

But what calms the public, physicists forced to clutch at the head.

If the black hole evaporates, where does the information that it had swallowed go? The paradox that shook the foundations of quantum physics found a solution in the theories that say that particles are actually strings, fluctuating not only in our four-dimensional space-time. Is this true, how many measurements in the Universe are in fact even the laureate of the main prize, Alexander Polyakov, can only assume.

"It always reminded me of the implementation of the idea of ​​Plato, who spoke. That we are like people sitting in a cave. We see a reflection of outdoor shadows on the wall of the cave. And we do not understand that there is a whole world (outside)," Plato explains situation in modern physics, laureate of the prize in fundamental physics, professor, specialist in quantum field theory, Alexander Polyakov.

So the collider will not remain without work. The detectors are more sensitive, the energy increase and then, perhaps, it will be possible to confirm the theory by experiment. And someday, and create a picture of everything, which will explain, not only how the universe works, but also why it is as it is.

For three and a half years of work of the Large Hadron Collider, physics stepped away. And, of course, the prospects for upgrading the collider are charging scientists with optimism. Many believe that the work for which 21 in March 2013 was presented with awards, in general, can be completed in this millennium.

      I agree, especially since you can study theoretical physics here, but we don't need it, at the helm of the country are "effective managers" and just thieves. Fundamental science is not profitable for them. A vivid example is the same notorious Fursenko, who announced on the air that we do not need to educate a creator, a creator in school, as was done in the USSR, we need, in his words, to educate a competent consumer ... That is, they should create and create in the West, and the Russian people should only consume ...

    Alexander Markovich Polyakov since 1989. works at Princeton University, USA. He is AMERICAN in the first place, Russia has nothing to do with him, because he emigrated from the USSR, so to write that he is a "Russian scientist" means trying to cling to the achievements of another country.

        - unequivocally, only the country where the scientist became a specialist has the right to call a scientist "his".
        I will illustrate - Joseph Prigozhin, Nobel laureate, Belgian scientist and no other. It is accepted to simply add - of Russian origin. Lotfie Zadeh is not an Iserbajan scientist, he is an American scientist of Iserbadjan origin.
        But the hero of the Sabbath A. Polyakov, according to any Russian scientist, and the authors of graphene are also Russian scientists! For they were brought up in Russian (formerly Soviet) schools, studied at universities of the same state, determined with scientific interests and defended their first degrees of scientists in Russia. The fact that, having already taken place, and even mature scientists, made a significant discovery with a foreign country, nothing changes. Well, perhaps thanks to the state that provided good conditions for the scientist.

        This repeatedly emphasizes that the Jews in Russia were "spread rot and crushed."
        Especially on the Mother they "got off".

        On the other hand, it is clearly seen that the Jews took root very well and inserted Jews into all good-quality places, cutting off the "oxygen" to non-Jews. It is strange to expect "love" after such "shifts".

        An example is the RAS in the time of Lomonosov.
        An abundance of German "professors" and especially teaching in German.

          What it is? Payment statement? Recording waiting lists for visiting the synagogue? No - this is a list of passengers of the very Lenin sealed train. It will be printed by Russian newspapers in the summer of 1917. Only 32 adults. There is a surname on the list 31, and Fritz Platten also rode on the same train, whose orders, as the head of the trip, were to obey everyone who wrote to the Germans a receipt. True, he and Karl Radek had problems with documents, and they were detained on the border with Finland. They will arrive in Russia later. But comrades Rubakov and Egorov — the majors of the German General Staff Anders and Erich — arrived safely in bustling Petrograd.

    I agree with
    Nayhas. As they say: "What we have we do not value, having lost we cry." Few people understand what is driving progress and production now. Look for the numbers: how many truly breakthrough patents are being filed in the US and how many in Russia? I personally knew a person who for 25 years pushed for a patent for a modernized internal combustion engine, which raised the efficiency of the latter from 29% to 58%. He received a patent. A year before death. And where is the engine? But this was a potential Nobel laureate. And another example. Remember the water filter and its inventor Petrik? Seemingly anecdotal character. But this man was condemned at one time for the smuggling of octium, WHICH PRODUCED IN THE HOME LABORATORY IN THE BASEMENT OF OWN HOUSE !!! And where is Petrik now? I think that's what drives US progress.

    Polyakov is engaged in "string theory". These are the frontiers of human cognition in the very thing to eat of THEORETICAL PHYSICS. This is a universal human search for truth. And we should be proud that both the founder and the laureate are Russians.
    We rise from our knees, there will be an opportunity (and mind !!) for the state to allocate to science at least as much as now for the army, and everything will be fine. However, theorist does not need much.

        In fact. I also understand when the annoyance takes that techies, practitioners, Sikorsky, Zvorykin, Novoselov, appear abroad.
        But here we are talking about theoretical physics! Who cares where the scientist writes? Einstein made the theory of relativity in Germany, worked on field theory in the USA - which is the first patriotic, and the second worse due to signs of love for the homeland?

          Do not replace the concept - Einstein was forced to leave Germany for America due to the Nazis coming to power, if it weren’t for this fact, I’m sure that he would have stayed in Germany. But what about Lomonosov? he also studied in Europe, but nevertheless remained a Russian, after unlearning he returned to Russia! but did not stay in the west. If you ask a foreigner to list our classics (of course, who is familiar with our literature), then he will probably list our classics by name and he won’t even think that they are Germans, Americans, etc. I am not against the departure of our scientists abroad to earn money, but at least remain citizens of Russia! so that at least in case of a Nobel or other prize, the whole world knows that they are Russians! And not Germans, Americans, etc. foreigners, because the share of their success is in teachers, professors that they were taught.

          You twist. Maybe they wrote unpatriotic episodes, but this does not mean that they are not patriots of Russia, otherwise they would not have taken place. They may have shown that many are now trying to keep quiet and be "pretty". In your opinion, if some people are dissatisfied with the current government, they are not patriots? You are wrong. Do you know at least one world-renowned writer who would not love his homeland? the answer is obvious they are not.

    If the Higgs boson is really open, which I honestly doubt, (since I think gravity is not a particle but the curvature of the space of time), this opens up unrealistic opportunities for humanity, because this boson is responsible for gravity, and if we can now control it, When generating these particles, the very principle of aircraft to change, now you no longer need the wing as a lifting force, but the optimal shape of the device to move in all planes, i.e. disk or ball ..
    In general, Russian scientists have always been good theorists, because for practice, there was always a lack of state support, and so they invented everything virtually.
