Scientists have discovered in the Spanish cave of Ardales drawings left by Neanderthals between 45 and 65 thousand years ago. Chemical analysis showed that the cave art in Spain was of man-made origin, and archaic people brought ocher from outside the monument. Apparently, karst formations played a symbolic role among some groups of Neanderthals.
Astronomers using the SRT ground-based radio telescope have built the most detailed radio map of the Andromeda Galaxy. It made it possible to better study the structure of the galaxy and its properties, as well as to compile a catalog of background sources.
For the first time, astronomers have reliably registered the presence of a dusty Moon-forming disc around a protoplanet in an exoplanetary system. This was done thanks to the ALMA radio telescope, which observed the system of the young star PDS 70.
