NASA research of Earth-Moon mechanics by astrophysicist Robert Newton leads mathematicians of MSU to a breakthrough in the chronology of civilization and Russia. Peter the Great had literally ruined Russia, lost at least a quarter of its population, tried to break into Europe, moved the capital of Russia from Moscow to St. Petersburg, made Russia to an awkward upstart and a laughing stock of Europe. After three years in Holland and Germany, he ordered the nobility to cut beards, smoke tobacco and dance, reformed the Orthodox Church into total submission. He did not quite succeed in his brazen reforms and left a testament ordering the successors to conquer Europe. Peter beheaded old imperial guard, created modern army that won and built a fleet that sank. He tested his new army on the king of Sweden Karl XII who also claimed Russian throne, beat Karl and his army, rumored to be the best, into pulp in Poltava. Russia paid very high price for Peter's reforms in blood, sweat and tears.
