2 A Visit from a Rocket

A Visit from a Rocket

526675_900This would be a one-photo posting, however I find it important to include here. During the last few days there has been a flood going on in the Altai region of Russia. Hundreds or even thousands of houses are flooded and the people are suffering there, however this post is not about the flooding itself but rather an event happened in one village in the affected region. As news outlets mention, during the recent flooding event the villagers were pretty shocked to find in the morning that their local river has brought a part of space rocket to their small place, located in the middle of the wilderness. This piece of a rocket you can see on the photo above. It’s not clear where the river got it from, however it is probably a piece of a space mission that fell back to the ground during the launch and was not recovered and recycled in a timely manner. So it was probably somewhere in the forest until the flooding happened and the higher water levels made the hardware float and move down the slopes of the Altai mountains towards this village where it was met with great amazement: it’s not everyday your village is visited by a space rocket, coming in by itself.

      Nah… According to the “old” Soviet traditions this could be reused as a water tower, a house, a sauna (well for this size – the whole SPA complex) a pig farm or at least some sort of storage. According to the “new” (post-Soviet) tradition it will “magically” teleport it self to the nearest scrap metal collection point (it does not have to be near the river).

      All depends on which “traditions” the locals follow… more strongly. :D
