Why do jellyfish glow?

How and why do living things glow? In what way does the light of jellyfish differ from the luminescence of insects, and can they hide once they’ve started to glow? Why did they put a monument to fireflies in London?
The discovery of what protein led to a Nobel Prize award? Should one believe the insidious light of a female firefly? What are the "milky seas"? Participants will conduct laboratory experiments and produce light through chemical reaction. They will make zebrafish (Danio rerio) glow, learn how people use natural luminescence for their own purposes and finally create a living light bulb.

Please note that all programs are run in Russian only.
