Boris Nemtov a fost asasinat

A leading Russian opposition politician, former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov, has been shot dead in Moscow, Russian officials say. An unidentified attacker in a car shot Mr Nemtsov four times in the back as he crossed a bridge in view of the Kremlin, police say. He died hours after appealing for support for a march on Sunday in Moscow against the war in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the murder, the Kremlin says. President Putin has assumed "personal control" of the investigation into the killing, said his spokesman Dmitry Peskov. It "bears the hallmarks of a contract killing," said Mr Peskov. US President Barack Obama  condemned  the "brutal murder" and called on the Russian government to conduct a "prompt, impartial and transparent investigation".

O sfera metalica, extraterestra, cu ADN... foarte interesant...

LONDRA (MEDIAFAX) - O sferă metalică microscopică, conţinând ADN, care ar fi putut aduce viaţa pe Terra, a fost descoperită de cercetătorii britanici în atmosfera înaltă a planetei noastre, informează slate.fr. Descoperirea ar putea să bulverseze complet părerea pe care oamenii o au despre viaţa de pe Terra şi din Univers. Mai mulţi cercetători englezi au anunţat că au descoperit în atmosfera înaltă a Terrei o sferă de metal microscopică, conţinând materie organică, şi au afirmat că aceasta a fost trimisă pe Pământ de o civilizaţie extraterestră cu scopul de "a însămânţa" planeta noastră. Misterioasa sferă microscopică din metal a fost fotografiată în momentul în care expulza o substanţă biologică. Potrivit savanţilor britanici, acea substanţă ar putea fi material genetic. Ea a fost descoperită de o echipă de cercetători de la Universitatea Sheffield şi de la Centrul de astrobiologie din cadrul Universităţii Buckingham. Mai multe teorii au fo
