I am happy to get this high praise to my work, which is coming from the Russian Academy of Natural History this time. The science of heat is an extremely interesting area. For laymen this is a subject about boilers, turbines, and heat cycles. Sounds pragmatic yet boring. However, while dealing with heat we have touched upon one more thing – energy, which is one of the most important substances in the Universe. Energy has always existed and will always exist. This is the first rule of thermal dynamics. And if there is energy them there is substance, they are inseparable. This brings heat to a whole new level – philosophical, - Prof. Voronin was quoted as saying.
