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.

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:

1923 - 1993

Place of birth: Krasnoyarsk city, Russian SSR

Studied in: Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical Institute, Russian SSR (since 2004 V.P. Astafiev Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical University, Russian Federation) (1940-1941, 1946-1949);

Key interests: decameter radio astronomy, minor bodies of the Solar System, physics. PhD Thesis: Investigation of temperature magnetic hysteresis of nickel by the method of automatic photo-recording (1954 Moscow Oblast pedagogical institute); ScD Thesis: Magnetostructural transformations in ferrites (1966 M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University);


He was born in January 1923 in Krasnoyarsk city of Russian SSR in family of workers. His parents came from the Drokino village which is locating in the suburb of Krasnoyarsk.

In 1949 he graduated from the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the Krasnoyarsk Pedagogical Institute, where he graduated from the 21st Krasnoyarsk School in 1940.

The Teaching at the University was interrupted by the beginning of the Great Patriotic War of the USSR with the German fascist invaders, which was part of the Second World War. In September 1941 from the second year he was called into the army. The airplane "Alaska-Siberia" was flown by a flyer-pilot, discharging American planes through the taiga spaces of Chukotka and Western Siberia. Later he participated in the battles of the First Ukrainian Front. He was awarded the medal "For the victory over Germany". After demobilization in 1946 he continued his studies at the Krasnoyarsk Pedagogical Institute.

In 1954 he defended his Ph.D. thesis "Investigation of temperature magnetic hysteresis of nickel by the method of automatic photo-recording" in the specialized council at the Moscow region

pedagogical institute. Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR L.V. Kirensky was his scientific leader.

In 1966 he defended his doctoral dissertation "Magnetostructural transformations in ferrites" at the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University.

He started his career as a teacher of the Krasnoyarsk School of Young Workers No 1, still a student at the pedagogical institute. During 1949-1951 he worked as an assistant at the Department of Physics of the Siberian Forestry Engineering Institute. Since 1954 he has been working as a lecturer in the Department of Physics of the Krasnoyarsk Pedagogical Institute.

After launching on October 4, 1957, in the Soviet Union, an artificial satellite of the earth, according to the decision of the Astronomical Council of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR at the Krasnoyarsk Pedagogical Institute, an observation station for artificial satellites was opened. Associate professor of the Department of Physics V.D. Dilgerov was appointed the head of it. A group of teachers and students supervised. Among the most active teachers was Alexander Ivanovich Drokin, they spent a lot of work and forces on organizing the station's service and preparing students for this work.

During 1961-1964 he worked as a Senior Researcher, and then Deputy Director of Science at the Institute of Physics, USSR Academy of Sciences. During 1964-1969 he was the head of the laboratory of magnetic materials at the Institute of Physics of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1967 he was awarded the title of professor.

During 1969-1975 he was the rector of Krasnoyarsk State University.

Since 1975 he has been working as a Head of the Department of Experimental Physics of the M.V. Frunze Simferopol State University and headed the laboratory of magnetic materials for computer technology. He was a representative of the Siberian Magnetic School, headed by Academician L.V. Kirensky. Scientists became the founder of the Crimean Scientific School of Magnetism.

In 1957, the scientist received an honorary diploma of the Ministry of Education of the RSFSR, later on the honorary diploma of the Astronomical Council of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, the badge "Participant of the International Geophysical Year", as well as the medal "For the development of virgin and transitional lands."

He died in July, 1993 in Simferopol city.
