Puschino Radioastronomical Observatory is the oldest Russia’s scientific establishment that is engaged in radioastronomic research. It was established on 11 April, 1956, when the authorities gave permission to build the institution and fix up a radio telescope on its area. Currently there are 2,5
radio telescopes (one of them only with its East-West axes working) operating at the observatory: RT-22 FIAN, DKR-1000 and BSA FIAN. On the header image you can see an experimental telescope. These things are dotted around the whole area of the observatory and wired up together.
Everyone has a thing of their own to do in life apart from their job, career, family or studies. That’s where a hobby comes in; and sometimes there is more to it than taking exercises or collecting stamps and coins. Some people collect memories. From time to time one guy that is fond of collecting
old photo cameras comes across old photofilms which were left behind. Author of these shots is unfortunately unknown as well as any other facts about origin of the photographs. We can just guess, but it surely looks like some rescue squad to the North Pole in old 50-60’s.
