Lithuania is preparing a project that will allow remote registration of virtual companies with limited liability (VLLC). The function will be available for legal entities from around the world, and the technology of registration is based on blockchain. This is the first project of virtual company registration in the world. According to Jonas Udris, the General Manager of the registry department, this technology will provide with reqired transparency and accessibility.

Each shareholder will be able to manage his funds at any convenient moment, because the blockchain will make possible to sell shares without intermediaries. Banks of Lithuania supported the initiative. The project is planned to be released in 2019.


TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite mission) space telescope was launched on April 18. It will allow scientists to discover planets outside the solar system. About 2000 exoplanets have been found since 2008, with a new telescope this number can increase tens of times. TESS replaced Kepler telescope, which was engaged in research of more distant stars and planets.

TESS will also study stars that are 10 times closer, and can cover almost the entire space around the stars. Scientists plan to study new exoplanets using the infrared telescope “James Webb.” NASA plans to launch it into orbit in 2020.


Area 120, a working studio of Google, has released a mobile application that will allow both adults and children to learn programming. Grasshopper will teach JavaScript basics due to easy lessons and practical tasks. As the material passes, theory and practice become more complex. Also, application users will be able to learn how to draw shapes using the JavaScript library D3.

The application is absolutely free and supports the interest of users through various achievements and progress indicators. In the future, developers plan to expand the theoretical base, but they will not add new languages.
