scientist 1The Russian Academy of Sciences was founded by Peter’s the Great order on February 8, 1724. In 1925 it was renamed to the USSR Academy of Sciences, and in 1991 – to the Russian Academy of Sciences. June 7, 1999, the Russian Science Day celebration was established with date on February 8 by the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation. The decree states that the festival was set up "taking into account a prominent role of the national science in the development of the state and society, following the historical traditions and in commemoration of the 275th anniversary of the founding of  the Academy of Sciences in Russia."

Mikhail Lomonosov, Ivan Pavlov, Dmitri Mendeleev, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, Pyotr Kapitsa, Lev Landau , Igor Kurchatov, Pavel Alexandrov, Sergei Korolev - these are just a small part of the names of Russian scientists who have made contributions to world science. 

Russia was the first country where the doctrine of the biosphere was developed, the world's first space satellite was launched, the world's first nuclear power plant was set in operation.

The last winner was Russian physicist K.S. Novoselov in 2010.
