The Soviet Union spent much money on outer space exploration building research laboratories which today turn out to be needless. This is a laboratory of metallography (metallography is the study of the physical structure and components of metals). Let's go see what's inside!
It was a secret laboratory with doors equipped with access codes, that even some of its workers could not go wherever they wanted. It has been like this before, now it's different.
So, we're in the control room.
Some part of the equipment has been removed. Probably, for other purposes.
A remote control device.
A control panel. Although the laboratory has been abandoned for some time, if you got caught here, you'd wish it had never happened.
In Soviet times, they conducted a lot of researches and tests here for cosmos exploration but in the 90s the country could not allow it anymore, so the work was suspended... for ever, as it turned out later.
Probably, this device was used for testing space equipment in a vacuum at different temperatures.
Some shots from the inside.
