ABSTRACT
Focuses on the origin and development of life. Discussion on achievements made in the field of science; Rediscovery of the Mendelian law; Information on the new knowledge of the geneticists; Identification of the genes, which create certain characteristics of the living creature; Effect of bombardment with X-rays, neutrons or other radiation on the genes; Opinion that the genes control the shape that growth takes from the beginning of the new life. Emphasis on scientific revelations that have enormously altered the conception of eugenics.

    A definition of the term "roentgen equivalent (in) man" is presented. It refers to a measure of the effect that a specific dose of radiation has on human cells. It is expressed numerically as the product of the radiation absorbed dose (rad) and a quality factor (QF) specific for the type of...

    We present the preliminary results of our analysis of the observations of the X-ray pulsar SAX J2103.5+4545 by the INTEGRAL Observatory in December 2002. We mapped this region of the sky in a wide energy range, from 3 to 200 keV. The detection of the source is shown to be significant up to...

    A small, specialised amplifier using commercial integrated circuits (ICs) was developed to measure radiation dose and quality in real time using a microdosimetric ion chamber and the variance method. The charges from a microdosimetric ion chamber, operated in the current mode, were repeatedly...

    Multipole interactions are known to play a central role in the unconventional properties of light rare-earth hexaborides and especially of CeB6. Substituting Pr at the Ce sites has the effect of enhancing exchange interactions and changing the symmetry of the local 4f charge distribution, while...

    The population of clearly identified anomalous X-ray pulsars has recently grown to seven, however, one candidate anomalous X-ray pulsar (AXP) still eludes re-confirmation. Here, we present a set of seven Chandra ACIS-S observations of the transient pulsar AX J1845.0-0258, obtained during 2003....

    Accreting pulsars are exceptionally good laboratories for probing the detailed physics of accretion onto magnetic stars. While similar accretion flows also occur in other types of astrophysical systems, e.g. magnetic CVs, only neutron stars have a small enough moment of inertia for the accretion...
