Pressure Chamber And Fire Department – Shadows of the Past

Pressure Chamber And Fire Department 2

In Moscow there’s a scientific institute that has been already closed for a long time. This two-storeyed building on a fenced territory is a shelter for this test chamber that was probably made in the USA.

The door is very heavy, two compartments inside.

And it’s another part of the building – here nearly nothing has remained.

  1. Wow. Madonna looks nice in calander. shes a freak now. Good Pics. Always like the abandoned buildings. Reminds me of Glasgow!

  2. That pressure/vacuum chamber looks like it was Canadian made, or perhaps British, because of the Celsius temp gage.

  3. The “pressure chamber” is in fact a vacuum chamber. It is most certainly NOT made in USA, as evidenced by the distinctive asian fonts on English wording, and asian idiomatic translations to English of signage. Could be from China, South Korea or most likely Japan.
    It appears that human subjects were used in experiments.
    For what use was this machine intended?

    • Definitely not made in USA. Hey Russia, not a good idea to leave the mess to the next generation to clean up. But then the US is not perfect either. Just sayin……

    • are you suggesting Soviet science-ethics were worse than those anywhere else? People’s lives weren’t endangered.

      • No question to ethics at all. Diminished pressure studies on humans were part of Soviet and USA space programs, as well as military research on effects of high altitude on pilots.
        I am only curious as to the nature of the use of this particular machine.

    • I will guess Boritz, that it was used for human and static experiments for the purpose of determining whether or not a human being could survive in a post-nuclear environment if positioned in a vacuous environment. Obviously cobbled together from odds and ends, and of a very crude technological and scientific theory.

  4. A. Bunka here. As far as the celsius meter is concerned, all of youse commie pinkos use the metric system, even American ones. Thank God the American people, in their righteous indignation, refuse to use the metric system, dispite millions of dollars of taxpayer money wasted trying to convince them otherwise. The metric system is a Franco-socialistic plot.

  5. I wonder if there are any recordings made on that reel to reel. It is still full of tape. Then mystery could be solved.

  6. Chamber looks to be a super high pressure hyperbaric chamber for pressurizing people. Also very similar to semi-conductor vaccum chambers.

  7. I somehow doubt it has much to do with high pressure, considering the fact that the chamber is rectangular in shape.

    High pressure / vacuum chambers are rounded, like the shapes of pressurized gas tanks for example, in order to distribute forces evenly on their walls. Corners and flat walls provide far less resistance for this purpose.

    Looks more like something designed for extreme temperatures tests (mainly judging by the thermometer scales).
