    MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 9, RIA NOVOSTI - Nobel-prize winner Vitaly Ginsburg believes that the government under-estimates the role of the Academy of Sciences. Speaking Monday at the session of the presidential Council on science and high technologies, he declared that the Academy should not be turned into "a senile club".

    He also suggested aurthorising the Academy of Sciences in association with mass organisations discuss Orthodox culture tuition at schools. "What is offered today ought not to be taught to children." Ginsburg disagrees with those who consider that all solid young scientists have emigrated, the opinion supported by another Nobel-prize winner, Alexey Abrikosov. "This is nonsense. Some fellows of the Academy of sciences, with a specific mentality, have gone away, but quite a number of whizzes are here," added Ginsburg.

    Ginsburg confirms the existence of the aging science problem. "It is young people carrying no burden of the past on their shoulders who come up with genius breakthroughs, continued the scientist. This is mostly characteristic of physics, but as a whole science is neither ballet nor sport--it has no restrictions on age," said Ginsburg.
