Short biography. Lomonosov as a multilateral personality
In 1711, on November 19, in the village of Denisovka,located in the Arkhangelsk province, was born the famous Russian scientist Mikhail Vasilyevich Lomonosov. As the brief biography tells, Lomonosov was a chemist, poet, physicist and artist.
The future poet spends his childhood with his fatherVasily Dorofeyevich and his stepmother, the love of which he never felt. They lived as poor as ordinary peasants, Mikhail was the only son in the family. Basically, all the people of that village, including Vasily, were engaged in marine crafts. To inherit all the things that his father did, he needed to get an education. Therefore, the boy is sent to the parish church to be taught literacy.
As the short biography tells, Lomonosov wasvery purposeful child, at an early age he learned to read and write. After young Michael learned about his father's intentions to marry him, he stole his passport and fled.

Unfortunately, with the natural sciences in the first stage of the exercise, as the brief biography describes, Lomonosov does not easily manage, which causes him even greater interest in them. In the future this will be a serious impetus to his professorial career.
