The Sea, the infamous Aral Sea has left this land. Now it is a desert. The Sea dried up rapidly during the 20th century and some ships decided to stay here as a monument to the sea. Now they decay and here is one of them – a Soviet Scientific ship “Otto Schmidt”.
Before it was a real ship in the real sea. Now the sea is gone. Let’s see how it was before and how it is now:
See those photos from 1960s? The ship was a real ship in a real sea.
Divers were exploring.
Young scientists of Soviet epoch.
The sea was so big you can’t sea the shores.
And now this.
You still can’t see the horizon, but it’s all long desert desert desert.
Pieces of ships here and there.
A few salty water spots still intact but very few.
This is the modern satellite map of the sea:
