The astronomer called life prodvijeniya of Crimea to mainland Russia


The head of the Institute of applied astronomy, RAS Alexander Ipatov has declared that Crimea is moving towards Russia at a speed of 2.9 mm per year. To such conclusion scientists have come due to the complex “quasar-KVO, who noticed a tectonic shift of the Peninsula toward the mainland in a North-easterly direction. Colleague Ipatova, senior researcher of the Institute Nikolai Zheleznov explained to us the essence of the opening.

– We started out your research before all the events in the Crimea and complications in Russian-Ukrainian relations. But it’s funny how the results of our scientific work coincided with the political process.

We actually got the data in 2012 or 2013 due to the radiometric measurements.

The movement of tectonic plates is the most common, some are faster and some slower. For example, the purpose of modern radiometry is to figure out where – with millimetre accuracy – are all the earth Observatory, and how, over time, will change their location. It is very important for stargazing, as any offset means a different latitude and longitude.

– You can find out how many years the Crimea is connected to mainland Russia?

– You need to calculate the distance from Crimea to the rest of Russia, and break it millimeters… If I remember correctly, there is a distance of about 20 km.

It will take hundreds of thousands of years, and then only in the case if he does not change his direction and will not turn back to any country. We do not know all the processes that occur to the bowels of the Earth.

Scientists estimate sample results from the movement of tectonic plates, even after 100 million years, but that in General, the continents, and that will be one Peninsula, to tell very difficult.
