Charles Graham from New York received a patent for artificial teeth in 1822. However, the American should not be considered a pioneer in this field. The fact is that the patent system in the United States has long been autonomous from Europe. In other words, what was an innovation in America could become obsolete in the Old World. So, in France, in 1679, the future “father of modern dentistry” Pierre Fauchard was born. The Frenchman was not afraid to experiment, creating false teeth from various materials.
In 1937, the Moscow Television Center on Shabolovka carried out the first experimental transmission of electronic television over the airwaves in the Soviet Union. Later, the phrase “Shabolovka, 53” (the original address of the TV center) became well known to all Soviet citizens. From the start of constant television broadcasting, bags of letters arrived almost daily at the given address.

On March 9, Soviet politician and statesman Vyacheslav Molotov (1890) was born; the world’s first cosmonaut, Hero of the Soviet Union, Yuri Gagarin (1934); American chess player, 11th world champion, Robert Fischer (1943), Italian film actress Ornella Muti (1955).
