We've had car on the Baikal lake ice already here. This is something alike, but different. This is the same place, but at night with some artificial illumination planted beneath the ice. I don't recall seeing something
like this before. So here is the story, told by the authors: "We didn't know if we would be able to illuminate the car thru the one meter (3 feet) thick ice. However we decided to give it a try..."
"Krasukha - 4" is another weapon of the Russian army. However this weapon doesn't shoot projectiles. Its sole purpose is to generate interference to jam other signals. As the Russian article on it says, it "makes missiles and planes of others blind and deaf literary". I am not sure how literal this is but what I get from it
is that it is a recently released top secret vehicle, with jamming equipment with a range of up to 300 km, that can jam electronics of the enemy planes, and even as they say, satellites. They also say that "if our Krasukha-4 is active we are sure with 99% possibility that enemy will miss our planes."
In Russia, today (April 12th) is known as "The Cosmonautics Day", as on 12th April 1961 Yuri Gagarin made his first flight to space. TV stations are usually airing something connected with space exploration
and we post here a film strip for high school children made back in 1983. I didn't have any idea that they had taken panoramic shots of the surface of Venus as far back as the early 1980s.
How does natural gas go from fields in the far eastern island Sakhalin to the system of gas pipeline " Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok "? The deposits of the Sakhalin shelf are main resource base.The Kirinskoye field has reserves at about 162.5 billion cubic meters of gas and 19.1 million tons of gas condensate . The system of gas transportation had started to work in October 2013 when the first portion of the test gas was injected to the gas pipeline system " Sakhalin - Khabarovsk -
Vladivostok ." The projected level of gas production is 5.5 billion cubic meters per year. The peculiarity of this field is under water. All equipment is located at the bottom at a depth of 90 meters. In Russian practice this method of extraction is used for the first time . Now let's follow the path of the gas from the field to the end user. On the first photo you see the complex on the beach. A pipe length which streched into the Okhotsk Sea is 29 kilometers.
This man from Belarus collects hammers, judging from the reports. According to the story, this man, Victor, started collecting hammers in 1993. Since then he has collected over three hundred of them. He even has a "hammer exchange". "Sometimes I want a hammer from another hammer owner and he
doesn't want to give me his hammer and won't sell it to me. Then I take the hammers from my hammer exchange fund and offer them to him for exchange. In this fund I have, as a rule, good, useful, household hammers, so many do go for such a deal". Some more stuff is inside.
A blogger from Moscow, Ilya, has travelled to the Russian city of Tver, which is roughly one hundred miles away from Moscow, and has around 400,000 people living in it. He says the city is bad: "Tver is an
African-style savage, dirty and destroyed city. Looks like nothing good has happened here in the last twenty years. I travel a lot across Russia but you don't often meet such a ***hole." - writes Ilya.
