National Geographic Russia in April

The main story in the April issue of National Geographic Russia magazine is devoted to Trajan’s Column. This 38-meter monument has towered over Rome for nearly two millennia. Carved reliefs winding from the bottom to the top of the column depict Trajan’s victory over the then-powerful Dacian empire. For centuries, historians have studied the reliefs to understand its many images – and that academic debate continues to this day.

A true acrobat, it can easily snap upright at will.

The Hubble at 25: The images that the Hubble space telescope transmits to Earth are striking for their visual clarity and wealth of detail. The telescope was launched into space a quarter century ago. During that time, the Hubble has enabled astronomers to have a glimpse of far-off worlds and answer questions that date back billions of years.
