On the Edge of a Dark Pit

Olenegorsk, Russia is like this. A Northern town, with a population of around 20,000, it is much further north than the polar circle. This means that there are times in the year - called Polar winters - when the sun doesn't rise and doesn't lighten up peoples lives in the city. This is not the only thing, but now add to this a large, deep mine pit,
which looks pretty depressing even at daytime during this air flight around it, but then in winter when it's all dark and the whole small town is situated on the edge of the primordial dark pit which in size looks like not much smaller than the town itself. Might be a pretty romantic location for some of the Olenegorskians...

Right now we are going to visit a very interesting place - abandoned bunker of nuclear response automatic control. Just imagine a 125-tonne capsule, 33 meters high, having twelve tiers,

3 Underground Lviv

Underground Lviv

Those tourists who come to Lviv, Ukraine, are often offered to have an exersion to the city underground, but in fact they are always fake - for twenty hryvnias you come down to a basement of some house and listen to stories about some terrible tortures and
executions. This time you can have a look at the real underground of Lviv - the biggest underground river in Ukraine - the Poltva. One more place we are going to visit - an abandoned bunker, former secret object "Loschina" ("Hollow").

Stange Soviet Scientific Object Or the Kingdom of Mirrors

How can you be sure if the probe you are about to send to the Mars won't burn out? Where can you check this? Or how can you make a "sun knife" that is able to cut any materials and even evaporate metals? Or how can you
generate the temperature of 4 000 C from sunlight? All this - just by means of a sunbeam! Answers to these questions can be obtained at the place few know about. You are invited to visit this place right now.
