Russian Atomic Icebreakers

Russian nuclear-powdered icebreakers 1

The Northern coast of Russia is covered with through the most part of the year. People of Russia couldn’t stand the situation when they have a 5000 mile long coastline but can’t transport anything across it. They thought they can fight the nature for their freedom of movement and have implemented those giant, nuclear-powdered icebreakers. They are completely independent from the fuel and are being powered by small nuclear power-plants on board. Here are some photos of those machines and the coastline across which they swim crushing all this ice and scaring the polar bears.

Darvaz: The Door to Hell

door to hell in Darvaz 1

This place in Uzbekistan is called by locals “The Door to Hell”. It is situated near the small town of Darvaz. The story of this place lasts already for 35 years. Once the geologists were drilling for gas. Then suddenly during the drilling they have found an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site with all the equipment and camps got deep deep under the ground. None dared to go down there because the cavern was filled with gas. So they ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out of the hole, and since then, it’s burning, already for 35 years without any pause. Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there.

There is also one video down there:
