Main actors in astronomy research in the country  There are 7 Research Institutes in the structure of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine), 2 Research Institutes in the structure of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sport of Ukraine (MESYS of Ukraine); 15 astronomical observatories and Departments in the structure of the Universities of the MESYS of Ukraine; 1 Private Astronomical Observatory play a main role in the development and teaching Astronomy in Ukraine.
The XPM Catalog  Absolute proper motions of 280 million stars distributed all over the sky without gaps in the magnitude range 10m < V <20m on the basis of combined data from 2MASS and USNO-A2.0 catalogues.
MAO NASU Plate Archive   Digital archive of MAO NAS of Ukraine (GPA) comprises data of about 26 thousands of direct photographic plates, obtained with 14 instruments in 9 observational sites, and more than 2000 digital images of different resolution available via GPA search pages.
Mykolaiv AO Plate Archive   Digital archive of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) includes astronomical data obtained during observations with photo plates and CCD frames. The digitization of the archive is near its completion. Digitized images are available via a web browser and Aladin.
AO LNU Plate Archive   Astronomical Observatory of Lviv National University (AO LNU) is the owner of valuable archive that stores approximately 8 000 of photographic plates from 1939, including nearly 6 000 direct images of the northern sky. The archive is partly digitized and images are available via the joint search pages of AO LNU and MAO NASU.
IRA UTR-2 catalogue of RS   The very-low frequency sky survey of discrete sources has been obtained in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences (Kharkov, Ukraine) with the UTR-2 radio telescope at a number of the lowest frequencies used in contemporary radio astronomy within the range from 10 to 25 MHz.
Mykolaiv AO stellar catalogues   27 astrometric stellar catalogues of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) in VOTable format are available for downloading
AO KNU Historic Plate Archive   AO KNU glass collection contains about 20 thousand photographic plates. Historical part of the archive was received during 1898-1946 and now is being digitized.

The Role of Data Science in Astronomy and Interstellar Exploration 
Space has always been a fascinating frontier for humans. From the first satellite, Sputnik 1, in 1957, to the amazing Mars rovers, our adventures in space show our love for discovery, creativity, and courage. Exploring space is a big dream, always pushing us to learn more and go further. Nowadays, data science is making a meaningful contribution to space technology. It's changing how we think about space. Being able to gather, understand, and use lots of data has helped us get to know the universe better and has changed how we explore and move through space...
GRID-based Virtual Observatory VIRGO.UA 
VO VIRGO.UA for cosmology and astrophysics is a segment of VO «Infrastructure»- a virtual organization, which deals with ensuring the provision of standards for Grid Services for virtual organizations, to ensure reliability functioning of the Ukrainian power grid, Grid training for users and administrators of the Grid sites, as well as the creation of technical conditions UNG for entry into the international grid community...
WDC-Ukraine is a part of World Data Center System of the International Council of Science (ICSU). Among the basic tasks of WDC-Ukraine there is collection, handling and storage of science data and giving access to it for usage both in science research and study process. That include contemporary tutoring technologies and resources of e-libraries and archives; remote access to own information resources for the wide circle of scientists from the universities and science institutions of Ukraine...
US VAO Data Discovery Portal 
Find datasets from thousands of astronomical collections known to the VO and over wide areas of the sky. This includes important collections from archives around the world. Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
US VAO Cross-Comparison Tool 
Perform fast positional cross-matches between an input table of up to 1 million sources and common astronomical source catalogs, such as 2MASS, SDSS DR7 and USNO-B. Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
VOPlot v1.8 Beta 
VOPlot v1.8Beta includes many enhancements and bug fixes. To name a few v1.8Beta supports multi-grid plots for 2D Scatter-Plot which allows the user to have multiple plots having grid size from 1x1 to 3x3 in a single window. Paginated view is added to see data in tabular format which allows user to navigate systematically. Provision to label Lat/Long lines is also added. Users can now plot a cumulative histogram for all histogram types. VOPlot 1.8Beta shows the metadata of a FITS file instantaneously while the actual loading happens in background. VOPlot v1.8Beta also provides better handling of "faulty data" while parsing an ASCII file.

General data:

13.06.1935 - 28.07.2017

Place of birth: Shuya city, Ivanovsk region, Russian SSR

Studied in: Irkutsk State Pedagogical Institute (since 2014 Pedagogical Institute of Irkutsk State University) (1959);

Key interests: physics of comets, minor bodies of the Solar System


She was born on June 13, 1935 in the Shuya city of Ivanovo region of the Russian SSR.

In 1959 she graduated from the Irkutsk State Pedagogical Institute.

As a student, since 1957 (officially) she worked at the city observatory in Irkutsk city under the direction of A. A. Kaverin. The astronomer and his husband conducted a large series of visual and photographic observations of the comet Mrcos 1957d. Observations of the Great Confrontation of Mars in 1956 were made. Since 1957, she and her husband spent two summer seasons in the Irkutsk program of observations of silver clouds.

In 1958 she and her husband began working in the laboratory for calculating time and frequencies of the All-Union Research Institute of Physical, Technical and Radio Engineering Measurements in Irkutsk under the direction of L. M. Nadeyev. Worked in the laboratory until 1963.

During 1964-1998 she was a researcher at the Institute of Astrometric Observations of the Russian Academy of Sciences and worked at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory on the basis of the Leningrad Institute of Theoretical Astronomy of the USSR Academy of Sciences.

The astronomer participated in the organization of the Crimean program of observations of small planets, led a team of the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory, conducted regular positional observations of small planets and comets on a double 40-cm astrograph at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.

Since 1998 she has worked as a senior researcher at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.

and since the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation in 2014, an employee of the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

She died on July 28, 2017.

She was an expert in the field of astrometry of small planets. The number of discovered small planets ranks second in the world among women astronomers - she discovered 268 asteroids.

For scientific achievements and the discovery of a large number of new small planets, the scientist was awarded three times the medal of the Astronomical Council of the USSR Academy of Sciences "For Discovering New Astronomical Objects" - in 1975, 1979 and 1982.

In 1998 she became a laureate of the international prize "Slavs" of the Ukrainian Academy of Ecological Sciences, and in 2004 together with her husband M. S. Chernykh and Rumyantsev V. V. became a laureate of the E. P. Fedorov Prize of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

The scientist was an honorary citizen of Shuya city.

The asteroid (2325) Chernykh, discovered in 1979 by Czechoslovak astronomer Antonin Mrkos, was named after the Cherny couple.
