This Nuclear Physics Lab is a typical lab which was built in the USSR. Every lab had is own investigation program, and according to the curtain of secrecy, nobody could get inside them.
This lab was operating until the 1990s
The power station is on the left. Ahead there is a cryogen station, and the lab is on the right
When it was closed, everything was carefully locked.
There is a shed, that looks like a garage in the thicket. What it is for, and what is inside it, is still a mystery.
Several ventilation shafts are not from bomb shelters. They are from the dungeon laboratory.
A lot of stuff on the ground floor.
A gantry crane is under the roof – to move something heavy.
Desk and chairs are looking good.
Lots of old newspapers and “Popular Mechanic” journals.
“The thing” on the floor can be seen here.
The interior has not suffered from the length of time of abandonment, because it was made rich and with a conscience, as were many other things during the Soviet era.
“To protect public property from fire is a duty of every Soviet citizen” “Follow the serviceability of ventilation” – the signs say.
Here are various instruments, amongst which were found dosimeters and sealed vacuum tubes.
Radio valves thyratron and kenotron for rectification of alternating current at high voltages.
The stairway to the 2nd floor.
The 2nd floor looks like the ground one, but sometimes a machine-tool could be seen.
There were no radiation leaks during all the time the lab was functioning.
Aside from the relatively “old” equipment, new equipment can also be found.
Cats are prohibited.
A basement corridor leads to a particle accelerator.
“Accelerator is working” the lamp says.
The particle accelerator. It’s scruffy, and time and looters have made it unrecognisable.
An empty tunnel leads from the accelerator.
Outside there are some animal relics.
The alive spiders and insects show that there is no radiation.
