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.

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.

Studied in: N. I. Lobachevsky Gorky State University (since 1990, M. I. Lobachevsky Nizhny Novgorod State University) (1975);

Key interests: history of astronomy. PhD Thesis: Genesis of the field concept in Maxwell's electrodynamics (1987 Institute of the History of Natural Science and Technology);


He was born on July 30, 1952 in Chernivtsi city of Chernivtsi region of the Ukrainian SSR.

In 1975 he graduated from the Faculty of Radio Physics of N. I. Lobachevsky Gorky State University.

During 1980-1983 he studied at the full-time graduate school of the Institute of History of Natural Sciences and Technology of the USSR Academy of Sciences.

In 1987 he received the degree of Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

He has been working at the P. K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University since 1986. He went from an engineer to a senior researcher (he received the title in 1998).

Since 2001 he has been the head of the Museum of the History of the University Observatory of the P. K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute.

The area of ​​scientific interests of the scientist is the history and sociology of science. Main areas of research: the history of astronomy in Russia, the history of classical field theory, the scientific revolution of 16-17 centuries.

In 1987 he successfully defended his dissertation at the Institute of History of Science and Technology on "Genesis of the concept of field in Maxwell's electrodynamics", devoted to the analysis of the processes of formation in the works of Faraday and Maxwell fundamentally new ideas about the structure of physical reality.

Main scientific results:

1) In the archives of the Russian Federation found and studied a number of materials relating to the history of astronomy at Moscow University. The results of the research were published in a number of issues of the yearbook "Historical and Astronomical Research" and a collective monograph "On the study of the phenomenon of Soviet physics in the 1950-1960's. Sociocultural and interdisciplinary aspects." St. Petersburg, 2014. (Chairman of the P. K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University in 1950-1960. (Chronicle of major events).)

2) Some social aspects of the Western European scientific revolution of the 16th-17th centuries have been studied. Among other things, the role of the Royal Society of London in the development of political philosophy in the second half of the 17th century and the role of Isaac Newton in the preparation and implementation of financial reform at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.
