Women in Science [Text] : 50 fearless pioneers who changed the world / written and il. by Rachel Ignotofsky. - Berkeley : Ten Speed Press, 2016. - 127 p.

Rachel Ignotofsky, a writer and New York Times illustrator, published her first book ‘Women in Science’ to spread her message about powerful women and their significant influence. ‘Women rock!’ she says and confirms her thoughts with the history of 50 researchers from various fields of science and technology, including such famous personalities as Marie Curie and Hedy Lamarr. We know less about Mae K. Jemison, astronaut, educator, and doctor. Mae Jemison is a good example of a woman who followed her passions and realized her childhood dreams. She became a medical doctor and an astronaut. She worked in the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone and Liberia for several years. Mae applied to NASA and became the first African-American woman in space. Now she founded BioSentient Corporation which creates devices that will allow doctors to monitor patients’ day-to-day nervous system functions.

Interesting information about 49 more women scientists can be found in Rachel Ignotofsky's book ‘Women in Science’.

 

Три століття козацького флоту [Текст] = Three Centuries of the Kozak Fleet / В'ячеслав Саричев ; англ. пер. Г. Остапенко ; худож. Є. Саричев ; упоряд. картогр. матеріалів О. Черненко ; Нац. заповідник "Хортиця", Благод. фонд "Хортиця". - Запоріжжя : Кераміст, 2015. - 136 с.

The history of Zaporizhzhya Kozaks is inseparably connected with sea campaigns and battles. That’s why it is considered to be the history of the Kozak fleet as well. From the late 15th to the late 18th centuries that fleet helped the Kozaks to challenge the confrontation and interaction of Western and Eastern civilizations and protect Ukrainian people from destruction. Taking this into account, the author believes the popular opinion about the historical period of the legendary “Chaika's” existence (from 16th to 17th century) to be arguable. While the Kozaks existed in the place of intersection of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Ottoman Empire, and Russia Empire’s expansion directions, their fleet continued to be a significant factor of geopolitical transformations in the Northern Black Sea and the Sea of Azov regions.

The edition is published in English and in Ukrainian. The book is intended for everyone interested in the history of Ukraine and Zaporizhzhya Kozaks.
