A third of Russians think the sun spins round Earth

By Reuters

Does the sun revolve around the Earth? One in every three Russians thinks so, a spokeswoman for state pollster VsTiom said on Friday.
In a survey released this week, 32 per cent of Russians believed the Earth was the centre of the Solar system; 55 per cent that all radioactivity is man-made; and 29 per cent that the first humans lived when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth.
