The book “How spaghetti is breaking and other problems of physics” authored by the senior researcher of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems Igor Ivanov is in print at the Alpina publishing house. The book is published in collaboration with the “Elementy”, an educational popular-science project. The book’s structure mirrors that of the “Problems” section of the “Elementy” website: “Problem Situation”, “Statement of a Problem”, “Prompting”, “Solution” and the most crucial point, the “Afterword”, where problem solving by scientists is given.

For whom is this book? “I would like heartily to recommend everyone to dive into its marvelous atmosphere. To your surprise, you will find out that knowledge gained at school and native wit are quite enough to make out problems of contemporary science,” advises the Deputy Director of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems Dmitry Naumov.
