Abstract:

The document states that during the last fifty years the USSR has attained an extraordinarily high level in the development of the national economy, culture, and science. New scientific and engineering disciplines were developed, and scientific research centers were founded. Scientific instrumentation has become the researchers tools. Nuclear physics has discovered Cherenkov radiation, the supervolatility of helium, and the spontaneous division of the nucleus. A greater emphasis is being placed on energy systems, chemistry, data processing, and communications facilities. The high-mountain scientific stations and artificial earth satellites have added much to the theory of cosmic radiation.
