P1160221Today, the eldest researcher of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems Yulian Aramovich Budagov is 88! Two flipped eights—a double infinity sign—is a rare symbol. Chinese people believed that an eight is a symbol of luck, Jews respected it as God’s number, ancient Greeks found stability and harmony in it, Indians considered it as a fusion of male and female principles in nature. This sign can also be defined as eternity of cognition and everlasting human striving for self-perfection and understanding of the world. We wish Yulian Aramovich not to stop moving towards cognition and harmony in his inside and outside world! Stay strong, active and healthy following this way! May grateful trainees and caring colleagues always surround you! May the Universe give you good chances every day to realize your intentions! And good luck in all you do!
