The Tbilisi scientists from the Georgian Systemic Research Centre and the Institute of Physiology of the Georgian Academy of Science believe that it is centrioles that are responsible for age-related changes of cells in a multicellular organism; centrioles being the protein structures that take part in the division of animal cells. Animal cells can split a strictly defined number of times, after which they will inevitably perish; the scientists believe that it is the centrioles that act as the counters of this division.

    The Moon is older than the centre of the Earth
    The group of Yuri Kostytsin from the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry RAS has applied an isotope method to identify when it is that the Earth’s core was formed. The scientists were not able to use long-lived isotopes for dating the history of the planet; they had to resort to the use of short-lived isotopes of hafnium and tungsten. This is the first time such a method has been used. To approximately determine the time of the formation of the Earth they compared the quantities of the isotopes of hafnium and tungsten in rock and ancient meteorites. In accordance with radical changes in the isotope correlation between hafnium and tungsten it is possible to judge when the substance of the planet split into the silicate part (mantle) and the metallic part (nucleus).

This forecast is based on analysis of changes in the Earth’s precession angle, meaning the angle of the inclination of the Earth’s axis on which the Earth rotates around the Sun, and on the dependence of the average temperature of the Earth upon this angle: the lesser the precession angle, the colder the climate.
