Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov reminded about this date in social networks.

In the hard times of the Civil War, he headed the Taurida University and actually saved the higher school in the Crimea from destruction, organized many research expeditions to study the natural resources of the peninsula.
Vernadsky is often mentioned in connection with the creation of the concepts of the biosphere and noosphere. But, of course, this is not the end of Vladimir Ivanovich’s role in domestic and world science. The range of his interests was very wide: from mineralogy, geology and radiochemistry to philosophy. Even during the life of the scientist, more than four hundred of his works were published.— said Aksyonov.
