    Fascinating photographs.

  4. Kilroy Was Here says:

    Nice. I wondered what happened to the Lenin. Definitely a huge technological step forward in its day.

    ‘scottie here captain we are ready to start the test but I don’t like the idea of shutting down the cooling pumps when the reactor is running at 115%”.

    Neato! Although I’d appreciate translations to English for some of the writing, I don’t know Russian.

    Great photos of a great ship named after a great lawyer and politician which opened old Russia for a new era of the people.

    The absence of computers may reflect this ship left active service in season 1988/1989 after 30 seasons of complex and impressive polar services. The American SAVANNAH(1962), Japanese MUTSU(1970) and OTTO HAHN(1968) were not economically successful ships at all and fast turned to laid-up ships in sad shapes, OTTO HAHN lost her atomic reactor by the way due to bad economy. But the Russians MADE IT SUCCESSFUL! may they conserve this magnificent as museum ship forever, as she was a true conqueror and revolutionary first atomic driven ship in the world fleet! Soon I guess she will be joined by the now retired ARKTIKA which was sent to pension 2008 after 33 years of service, also built in Leningrad in 1971-1975. Her last sisterships are the famous Arctic passenger cruise ships “JAMAL” and “50 LET POBEDY”.

    Beautiful! Thanks!

    Beautiful! Thanks! (A hajót két atomreaktor hajtja, ami elsőre extrának tűnt, aztán kiderült, hogy a Lenin jégtörőbe három reaktor jutott, amiből az egyik 67-ben elromlott, úgyhogy bebetonozták és behajigálták a tengerbe Novaja Zemljánál, mert annak már akkorra úgyis mindegy volt. A fenti kidobásos manőver után nem sokkal a Lenin többi reaktorát is lecserélték, de előtte még egy szivárgási pontot keresve letörték róla a sugárzásvédelmet.)

    sorry, this good: ( A Lenin jégtörőbe három reaktor van, az egyik 67-ben elromlott, bebetonozták és bedobták a tengerbe Novaja Zemljánál, utána nem sokkal a Lenin többi reaktorát is lecserélték, de előtte még egy szivárgási pontot keresve letörték róla a sugárzásvédelmet. ~Into the ice-breaker Lenin there are three reactors, one went wrong in 1967. It was concreted over and it was thrown in into the sea at Novaja Zemlja. They replaced the rest of Lenin reactors then. The radiation protection was disarmed from him when an oozing dot was being looked for on the reactor.Wikipédia writes it)
