Cross-country vehicle “Vympel” for the oil and gas fields in Yamal

"Vympel" SPA finishes the test cross-country vehicle, which can be called as one of the most impressive Russian explorers of impassable roads! Compared with several wheeled cross-country vehicles waiting on the territory of the "Vympel" SPA this car seemed huge! Its wheel height – is at the level of my eyes, and the car height - is near two human growths! So it is not a surprise that it surpasses all
the rest cross-country vehicles that are manufactured there: its curb weight is eight tons and this 11-meter giant could carry up even six tons of cargo. I want to note that we are talking about floating cross-country vehicle - other wheeled vehicles of high permeability that could drive through water obstacles, could take one, maximum - two tons aboard. Feel the difference!

Where and how the Californium 252 a most expensive metal in the world is made

  If you think that gold and platinum are the most valuable metals in the world, then you are wrong. Comparing with some artificially produced metals, the price of gold can be compared with the cost of rust on an old piece of corrugated iron. Can you imagine the price of 27
million US dollars per one gram of the substance? It is the real price of radioactive element called Californium - 252. Only antimatter is more expensive, but it is the most expensive substance in the world (about 60 trillion dollars per gram of antihydrogen).
