Today we'll visit a unique complex of space monitoring located 9 km away from the Tajik city of Nurek.
I love that. In a city where I used to live there is a similar facility. It was mainly for American NASA
And “Smashed potatoes” for breakfast. My favorite.
I know what you are talking about the facility was used in the early space flight days for tracking purposes they used it for some time into the 70’s I am not sure if it is still in use or not.
I’m intrigued by the geodesic raised panels that the domes are made of. Is each one a separate module that the domes are assembled from? Surely they must have form to their function. I can’t believe the Soviets would have made a technical installation look awesome like that just for the sake of it.
Thanks for the peek into a cool place. One question: Is this where they tracked “space monkey?”
Eye in the sky ! ! ! ! ! !why Tajik authorities don’t took over this facility ? ? ? Due to lack of “technical” Know how or financial difficulties ? ? ? or justifying the “presence” of Russian military units ! ! ! ! ! !
Because they have no need for such a system. What would they use it for? And Russians are paying for it. Also, Russian military “presence” in Tajikistan is justified by the fact that two countries form military alliance which has saved the country from Taliban invasion.
Someone should paint these to resemble the smiley faces.
Beam me up SCotty.
Tajik is not a Russia.
They really did land on the moon two ways to prove it one is that they left a laser that points back towards earth this laser is still active it was placed there to measure the variation of the moon and earth as they move through space.
The other is that with a powerful telescope the kind found at an observatory if one looks and the landing sights you can still see the materiel left behind only part of the lunar lander came back form each moon mission and they also had to leave the lunar cars behind all of these can be seen.
I agree with your distrust of the US government but in the same breath you seem to think that you can trust the Russian government when the fact is that no mater the origin or nation the government that happens to be the current world power(currently the US) will do the same things.
Until people see the world and the people in for what they are and not what some power or group tells them this will never change perhaps the name of the nation may change but the status qua will not.
yojimbo, so right. We are all just people trying to live our life.
When there is peace in our hearts we will have peace in our world.
NASA recently released photographs of the lunar landing sights taken from Earth. I consider the idea that Apollo was a fraud as silly. It may have been possible to fake one landing, but six? Not very likely. FOX news had some absurd special claiming the moon landings were fake several years ago, I don’t believe anything FOX news says.
Archy, try telling Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin they didn’t really land on the moon. I can still remember watching that awesome “small step for man” at my high school hall on TV.
The whole idea’s absurd, sour grapes.
Re: the Moon Landing Hoax thing… Buzz Aldrin finally got fed up with being harassed by that “moon hoax” guy and punched him in the face.
