Project “Problems of
research and use (including development) of space resources: international legal and comparative legal analysis”
“The key goal of
the project is to carry out a comprehensive legal analysis of problems in the field of research and use of space resources: solar energy, orbital-frequency spectrum and territorial resources of celestial bodies. Interest in these and other types of space resources is growing from year to year, especially in terms of their commercial use. However, the international legal procedures for their use have not yet been established. We will work out issues of ensuring security, procedure for international cooperation between states, as well as determine the possibility of private business participation independently or through public-private partnership in such activities,” says Irina Chernykh.

Project “Analysis of
mechanisms for the formation of a circular economy on the example of EU countries”
the work on the project, we will analyze supranational and national mechanisms of state support for the formation of a circular economy. Let us evaluate the effectiveness of these mechanisms, taking into account the rate of improvement of existing technologies and the likelihood of the emergence of new technologies with improved characteristics. This project will be distinguished from other studies in the field of circular economics by an integrated approach to the assessment of such mechanisms,” says Konstantin Gomonov.

Bacteria in biofilms are 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, disinfectants, mechanical treatment, and other types of stress. A chemist from RUDN University suggested a method to prevent the formation of biofilms and reduce the resistance of bacteria to antimicrobial medications. This might help increase the efficiency of antibacterial treatment in the food industry, medicine, and agriculture.
A specialist in spacecraft movement control analyzed the process of placing vehicle stages, boosters, and other space debris into the so-called disposal orbit and suggested cleaning lower orbits up with a spacecraft that has modules with engine units on board. These modules will attach to space debris objects and move them away. As for the geostationary orbit, a preferable way to clean it up would be a towing spacecraft that transports space debris objects into the disposal orbit.
A biologist from RUDN University studied the development of the immune response in prepubertal male and female animals. According to her, the severity and mortality of infectious and inflammatory diseases at this age depend not on the sex hormones, but mainly on the chromosome set or karyotype.
