1 How Optical Sights Are Being Made?

How Optical Sights Are Being Made?

Remember a few days ago we saw an abandoned place full of optical sights? Now we have optical sights for guns again but this time its not abandoned and they are not made yet. We will see how those are being manufactured and assembled. Might be pretty interesting inside, thanks
to Aslan who has visited a highly secured production line of this Russian factory specializing in the long range aiming optics. Normal people are not allowed there with a camera but he went and made those photos! So let's see, that should be interesting:

5 Trip to North for a Biology Researchers Village

Trip to North for a Biology Researchers Village

This is how an abandoned residential district looks in the Russian North. This is not some Far Far North in Siberia but rather a European North, close to Norway (really close, just maybe 50km from the border of Norway) and close to the waters of the Northern Ocean, which seems not to freeze here due to the Gulf-stream. So the blogger
Lana went there to take photos and thanks to her efforts we can see those photos here, too. Come inside for a tour of the spooky abandoned village, the former home of scientists who came to the North to study biology during Soviet Times but aren't there any more. Some people still prefer to remain living there.

First TU-144 Body Transported thru Moscow

When the first ever version of the Tu-144 supersonic airliner was conceived, they didn't build it all together in one factory. They built the fuselage in one place, inside Moscow city and then decided to move it to Zhukovski city where it could be supplemented with all other parts and systems. To
move such a thing out of the Moscow research center through the city streets they had to build specially-built trolleys that could negotiate the streets, as back in 1968, they didn't have a ready-made means of transportation for this task. These are a few photos of this event.

6 Soviet Magnetic Levitation Train

Soviet Magnetic Levitation Train

Wagon TA-05 - the first Soviet car on an electromagnetic levitation system, built in the period of 1985 to 1986. The first successful launch was conducted on February 25, 1986. "Our laboratory is working on a project of creating a passenger wagon that will move without touching the rails. It will move horizontally using the principle of a linear, three-phase,
asynchronous motor. Moving with a cruising speed of up to 250 kilometers per hour, the vehicle will be virtually silent. The track can be raised on a platform over the main thoroughfares of the city. One kilometer will cost 3 to 5 times less than the subway," the Head of the Laboratory VNIIPItransprogress, A. Chemodurov, said in an interview.
