Dear friends, colleagues!
February 8 is annually celebrated as the Day of Russian Science, which was established by presidential decree of June 7, 1999, "given the outstanding role of domestic science in the development of the state and society, following historical traditions and commemorating the 275th anniversary of the founding of the Academy of Sciences in Russia" .
Russian science has given the world many great names and discoveries. One of which was a brilliant Russian scientist - Mikhail Lomonosov, the luminary of world science showed the role and importance of people who can give the world glass!
Mikhail Vasilievich was the creator of the chemical production of glaze, glass, and porcelain. He developed the technology and formulation of colored glasses - smalt (pieces of a homogeneous opaque mixture of glass and metal oxides), which he used to create mosaic paintings.
Nowadays, interest in studying the properties of this material, born of earth and fire, does not wane! Looking to the future, researchers hope to realize a significant breakthrough, using glass to neutralize nuclear waste, create safe batteries and design biomedical implants. Engineers are developing ingenious touch screens, chameleon glasses, safety glass.
On behalf of the Presidium of the Glass Union of Russia and on my own behalf, I congratulate all workers in the glass industry ON THE DAY OF RUSSIAN SCIENCE. I wish you prosperity, development, new promising opportunities and solutions!
