Russian Nuclear Research Facilities

150_russianresearchDark Roasted Blend has a collection of photos from various nuclear research facilities in Russia.
Some of them are buried deep in the Caucasus mountains, others are lurking in abandoned salt mines underneath forgotten villages, yet others are set up deep underwater in Lake Baikal - all are fully functional, facilitating cutting-edge research, with scientific progress routinely made on glaringly obsolete equipment.

And they come with their own quirks, too, like an Orthodox church sharing space with a neutrino detection facility in an old salt mine, or the real danger of falling rocks at the entrance to another facility. Link
