7 40 Craziest Russian Balconies

40 Craziest Russian Balconies

Since the demise of the Soviet state, most Russians found themselves living in typical old Soviet buildings. Most of the buildings had balconies and this is where the urge for individuality was expressed. People started heavily modifying their balconies for a number of reasons. Firstly, most of the balconies were just open air balconies and were not isolated from the outside, so they couldn't be used in winter, or during rains, etc. So the first stage of modding a balcony was to
turn it into a sort of room to be able to use it all year round. Since everyone was doing this job independent of other people living in the same apartment building the balcony room designs emerged with a really diverse variety. And since every balcony was individually designed, people started to decorate them, often very heavily. So let's see what happened with this selection of what might be the forty most crazily modded Russian balconies!

7 Soviet Scientists Knew How Humans Could Live in Space

Soviet Scientists Knew How Humans Could Live in Space

In a sci-fi movie "Martian" an astranaut left on the Mars all alone tries to survive in any possible ways. It is especially curious how he produces water and grows potatoes - but actually something like this had already been done by Soviet scientists fifty years ago. Working on prototypes of future bases on the Moon and other planets, they managed to create  closed systems
that independently produced air, water and even food for participants of the experiment. In the 60-70s at the order of a world-known scientist Sergey Korolev they made a prototype of a space station where people could live for months without obtaining water, air and food from outside. That result has never been repeated by anyone since then.
