Hey hey, here comes 2022!Right under the chimes, the editorial staff of Hi-News.ru wishes you a Happy New Year, dear readers! All these 365 days, we never parted for a second, discussing not only missions to Mars and the Sun, climate change and the fight against the pandemic, but also the future of humanity, as well as the search for life outside our planet. The existence of the Multiverse, amazing discoveries in the field of quantum mechanics, amazing finds of archaeologists left no one indifferent. Science is moving forward with leaps and bounds, and our task is to tell about these discoveries in a captivating and understandable way. Thank you, beloved readers, for your support and glowing eyes, you make us better! Holding a glass of champagne in one hand and a plate of Olivier in the other, we wish you a Happy New Year! May 2022 bring you health, happiness, love and success!
How will we remember 2021?
We recently talked about the main scientificdiscoveries in 2021. Among them are the flight of the Parker probe to the Sun, the conquest of Mars, the Nobel Prize in physics and, of course, the fight against COVID-19. Vaccinations, quar codes and face masks - will 2021 be remembered like that?
Possibly, but not required. It is worth taking a closer look at how amazing scientific discoveries appear before our eyes - 2021 presented many reasons to be happy, thanks to which we have hope for a bright future.
We have witnessed outstanding scientific advances in biology, astronomy, medicine, engineering, computing, and many other areas of scientific knowledge.
And yet, the development, testing and introduction of vaccines against COVID-19 - major scientific breakthrough, if not years, then decades.The only vaccine that can compete in terms of development and introduction is the mumps vaccine developed in the 1960s (the entire stage took about four years).

The third year of the pandemic is marked by the influence of OmicronIs a rapidly spreading variant of the coronavirus, which was first detected at the end of November and poses a real threat to global health. Early research results indicate that vaccines are less effective against Omicron.
But it is too early to draw conclusions today - scientists are strivinglearn more about the new variant and continue to monitor the growth in the number of new strains of SARS-CoV-2. Progress is also expected in the development of vaccines against other viruses and diseases, including HIV, malaria and Lyme disease. Well, we will definitely tell you about them!

"Don't look up"
2021 opened the world's eyes to another problem -climate change is already outside our window. What is happening to society and the planet is perfectly shown in the film "Don't Look Up." The story begins when a young astronomer discovers a comet flying at breakneck speed towards Earth - about the same size as the Chicxulub asteroid that killed the dinosaurs.
When do other scientists confirm the existencecomet and its trajectory, the orgy begins: "No comet exists, look down - this is the main motto of mankind." Replace the word "asteroid" with a pandemic or climate change - and voila, we are the heroes of the film. “Don't look up” paints a picture that is painfully similar to reality.
Fortunately, we are able to conquer the ones to come.problems and hear scientists. Realize that vaccines can defeat a pandemic and mitigate the impact of climate change. The new year 2022 will bring with it unknown events - both good and bad. Our task is to meet them and fight for the bright future of mankind. Yes, no more, no less.

Hope the world finally listens in the New Yearto scientists and we can defeat the pandemic. The future is in our hands and so far we are able to prevent the fall of the metaphorical "asteroid" on the Earth.
Welcome to the future!
2022 will be especially interesting from the point of viewspace exploration and exploration - two Russian scientific missions, the Luna-25 probe and the second half of the Russian-European project ExoMars, will go to the Moon and Mars. The launch was originally scheduled for 2020 but has been delayed in part due to problems with the parachutes needed to land safely.
According to TASS, two other anticipated events in the world of space science will be associated with the American missions DART and James Webb, aimed at exploring and exploring deep space.

As for physics, it is one of the most anticipatedThe events of 2022 will be the restart and opening of several of the largest scientific installations at once, associated with the study of the fundamental forces of nature. In February, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will resume operation - it was shut down at the end of 2018, and became the second major modernization of its systems.
In 2022, the LIGO gravitational observatory will also resume its work - another major scientific project aimed at studying the history of the formation and evolution of the Universe.
But whatever the coming year may surprise us, we arewe know for sure - we at Hi-News.ru will continue to tell you about all the most interesting from the world of science and high technologies! Happy New Year, dear readers! Be healthy, happy, successful and enter 2022 with a smile on your face! Hooray! Long live science!
