    GAUGE GRAVITATION THEORY AS A HIGGS FIELD

    Physicists from MSU developed a gauge gravitation theory in which the gravity field of Einstein’s general theory of relativity is represented as a classical Higgs field, like the Higgs vacuum in the Standard Model of elementary particles and fundamental interactions.

    THE LARGEST MAGNETS

    In collaboration with a group of Russian, German, English, Spanish and Chilean specialists, D.D. Sokoloff has established that the magnetic field of Galaxy M83 is arranged in several spiral arms, some of them coinciding with gaseous arms, and others being located between gaseous arms (see fig. where the magnetic arms are coloured, and the gaseous arms are shown as a contour). Magnetic arms had previously been detected only in Galaxy NGC6946.
