    Alan Turing
    The absence of laws of behavior that together would determine our life cannot be seen as easily as the absence of a complete list of rules of action. The only way we can find such laws is a scientific explanation, and of course we can never ... say: “We have already researched enough. There are no laws that fully define our life and behavior. ”

    After the war, Churchill, for reasons of secrecy, ordered the destruction of all material traces of the Ultra program, including the Bombe machine.
    More than 60 years later, British history buffs rebuilt one Turing Bombe machine, despite having detailed drawings and explanations (a complete set was assembled for 2 years), they spent 10 years on it.
    The name of the Bombe device is sometimes mistakenly translated into Russian as "bomb." Meanwhile, the bomb in English is bomb. The name Bombe, according to one version, is derived from the name of the dessert from the Bombe glacée ice cream, in the form of a bowl or cylinder.

    Anna Akhmatova
    image Everything in Moscow is saturated with poems,
    Rhymes pierced through and through.
    May silence reign above us,
    May we rhyme apart,
    May silence be a secret sign of
    those who are with you, but seem to be me,
    you will unite in a secret marriage

    That in the darkness grinds underground granite
    And the magical closes the circle,
    And in the night above the ear death prophesies,
    Drowning out the loudest sound.
    1963, Moscow

    Of 30 volumes and 1,200 articles by Pierre de Coubertin, 170 pages were translated into Russian.
