COLLOQUIUM: Mikhail Lomonosov - Father of Russian Science

Professor Robert Crease
Stony Brook University
Dr. Vladimir Shiltsev
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

We will briefly review review the life and achievements of Russian polymath Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-1765) who is rightfully called the “Father of Russian science” for his tireless promotion of Enlightenment, many outstanding contributions to natural sciences and foundation of the country’s foremost Moscow University. Some of his projective works in physics, chemistry and astronomy were way ahead of his time, and one of them - discovery of Venus's atmosphere - will be presented in greater detail.
