News of the Altai territory

In 2010 on Altai have found one of the unfinished projects of the military-industrial complex. This command "Sphere", which could withstand a direct hit of a nuclear warhead. Because now the object is abandoned, you can see how they were arranged like buildings in which an outsider to penetrate it is impossible in principle.

Now the "Sphere" cut into scrap metal, but the remnants of the building and photographs can be understood that it represents. The object was designed on the principle of "Russian dolls": a concrete shaft, in which a metal capsule and inside the capsule is a four – storey block, suspended on shock absorbers. This unit is instrument and control with all systems "Spheres".

shock Absorbers need to tremors in the time of the explosion destroyed the building. Eight shock absorbers are designed to dampen the oscillations horizontal and eight vertical. They also do not enable the module, inside of which are people and equipment that strike the wall of the capsule.

the Capsule consists of several layers of metal. The space between the capsule and the cap is filled by high strength concrete. Inside are heat exchangers which dissipate heat from the operating equipment. And in the case of a nuclear explosion and the heat that it will stand out.

If necessary, the structure can operate in a fully Autonomous mode. And in peacetime when it is not necessary, his life-support systems related to technical building which is connected with the capsule in the tunnel (the postern). This hundred-meter postern remained still.

at the Top of the capsule is semi-circular cover that can be used to evacuate people. This cover also features a retractable antenna. After evacuation of the space between the walls of the mine and the walls of the balloon is filled with granular material, which dampens the shock of the tectonic wave.

on the Inside "Sphere" can be accessed through the gateway that is at the level of the top floor.

the Name "Sphere" suggests that the building itself is round, although inside it is a rectangular. On the walls is a lot of stairs. Also inside are the cells to absorb heat. The distance between the cameras and the capsule not more than five feet.

Near the building were two heavy-duty crane, which has long been disposed of for scrap. The metal part is also cut from the upper part of the capsule.

it is Interesting that now more and more widespread round the house (called a dome) that looks like a sphere. This is one of the trends of suburban construction.

so now you can see in the photos the objects that were not intended for prying eyes under any circumstances.

the importance of this construction says that it continued after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The work was in full swing: to build a command post, who were not afraid of any nuclear bombing. On the secret maps was supposed to be another top-secret facility of the military industrial complex, which showed the full power of the nuclear powers.

Built hangar with the capsule, and the right of the technical building. On completion, the capsule was supposed to be inside a metal shell. Upper compartment capsules contain actuators, masts: antenna, emergency manhole, etc. the Assembly and welding of individual elements of the capsule was carried out on a concrete area in front of the mine.

Protective capsule in its original form resembled a hedgehog. After construction it was supposed to cover and simultaneously fill the heavy-duty concrete. Then you get into the capsule it would be possible only through a special gateway. Construction for the approach to the gateway was protected from any bombardment and attached to the side of the main shaft. Through it also produces hardware maintenance and, if necessary, its replacement. In this building was also built cable canal, which in time of peace was linked to the technical building.

After entering the capsule had to go down six flights of stairs down to get to the main airlock, sealed the door with pipes for cables.

Inside the main gateway – three airtight doors to protect from shock waves during a nuclear explosion.

In the capsule is a lightweight container for equipment, which hangs in suspension. The container is assembled from building blocks separately for each task. In the same container there is a duty shift officers.

on the Side of the container bottom were two of compressed air. Their purpose is to ensure the functioning of the complex offline.

All the hatches were hermetically closed.

On the ground floor was occupied by duty personnel, and the second control module energy part. On the third floor was the cooling system, the fourth – power, battery and compressor compartments.

After the elimination of the object inside the capsule left a feeling of disorder.

Technical building consisted of technical and administrative parts. In the technical part were ventilation and cooling, air conditioners, compressors and the substation transformers. Here was the entrance to the tunnel that connected the technical building with the capsule.

the administrative area was also a dormitory for the staff "Spheres".

After the start of reforms the military-industrial complex was in decline. The construction of the first freeze. Soldiers from the battalion were transferred to other facilities. After some time, began to break down the fence of the facility, disappeared from the metal hangar. Gradually all rusted and destroyed.

But without the protection of such a facility could not leave. The decision was made to eliminate a top-secret unfinished. In 2010 work commenced again. Only now it was aimed at the destruction. The building was cut and taken away.

a few years from a super-secret object were only memories, legends, empty concrete shaft and the wreckage of the technical building.
