До тех пор пока каждый может продолжать дискуссии об этой трагедии мы все к пониманию кто устроил или не устраивал эту трагедию  общего не найдем.А разве только Украина испытала на себе,а что россию это обошло стороной?.И последнее кому и для чего нужна вся эта возня и актуальна ли она сейчас.?

Emily Lakdawalla can't wait for 2016!
2015 has seen few deep-space-craft launches, but 2016 is shaping up to be a banner year with three launches, followed quickly by a fourth in early 2017. All of the missions under development have reported significant milestones recently.

Tons of fun with the latest #Ceres image releases from Dawn.
Fantastic new images of Ceres continue to spill out of the Dawn mission, and armchair scientists all over the world are zooming into them, exploring them, and trying to solve the puzzles that they contain.
