SIGNIFICANT EVENTS ON SEPTEMBER 25
September 25, 1945 In the USSR, a record long jump from the stratosphere was made. It was performed by Colonel Vasily Romanyuk, instructor-tester of parachutes and ejection systems of the Air Force Research Institute.
His jump from the stratosphere became a world record, both in height and in the duration of the fall with an unopened parachute.
Barographs showed that the athlete left the plane at an altitude of 13,108.5 m, he spent 167 seconds in free fall and opened his parachute at an altitude of 1000 m.
Subsequently, Romanyuk set 18 world and a number of all-Union records.
September 25, 1818 physician James Blundell – one of the founders of blood transfusion and pediatric resuscitation – performed the world’s first human-to-human blood transfusion. He performed the first successful transfusion of human blood in a patient with postpartum hemorrhage, using her husband as a donor.
Blundell understood the seriousness of this procedure, so he quite clearly developed the technology for taking blood and transfusing it, and also invented the first convenient tools. In the process of research, he noticed a number of defects that accompanied the procedure: blood clotting, its incompatibility, which often led to the death of patients, and air embolism, in connection with which Blundell proposed a number of monitoring methods. But he also noted that no monitoring is able to prevent fatal complications of blood transfusion.
On the last Sunday of September, machine builders celebrate their professional holiday. Engineer’s Day was installed in 1980.
Mechanical engineering is the basic branch of the economy of any highly developed country, the core of the industry, the most important branch of industry, its industrial and intellectual potential. Therefore, the Machine Builder’s Day is a holiday for all workers and engineers in the machine-building industry of the economy.

The purpose of the Day is to raise the awareness of the international community about the problems that deaf people face on a daily basis. After all, according to statistics, every ninth person suffers from hearing impairment.

Every year on September 25, Americans and all comic book lovers celebrate National Comic Day – a genre of drawn literature, which has long become a part of book culture and a profitable industry in developed countries.
Experts call several prominent artists the founders of comics. In the 18th century, the English painter and graphic artist William Hogarth clothed a dramatic narrative in a drawing. The German poet and graphic artist Wilhelm Busch provides his poems with a series of drawings, thereby reflecting the storyline of the poetic narrative.
The first example of real graphic prose is considered to be a series about the adventures of Dr. Syntax – “Doctor Syntax’s Journey in Search of the Picturesque” – by the English cartoonist and painter Thomas Rowlandson.
The first American comic book, The Bear Cubs and the Tiger, was published in the Sunday New York World in 1892. In the heyday of comics, the immortal heroes of the stories “Donald the Duck”, “Mickey Mouse” were created. The themes of modern comics literally cover the entire spectrum of human life: from love to hate, from war to peace.
