Tour of the Research Institute of the abandoned artificial minerals
• Tour of the Research Institute of the abandoned artificial minerals
Vladimir region is very rich in various interesting places. Delving into the internet to find something interesting, I came across an article that discussed the bankruptcy of one of the leading research institutions involved in the synthesis of artificial minerals. Intrigued by this article, we have a winter night moved to the institute.
to enter the territory and inside was easy. Perimeter has long not been repaired, and the gap above the spur gate was enough to to get through with a backpack. Once we were inside, the first thing to consistently inspect the first floor, going into all the open doors.
To understand what is and what is - not possible.
Some machines were closed white sheets as cover the dead. Under the sheets were units that will never make money.
The corridor lit places, that hints at the presence somewhere of protection or a minimum duty.
The Marauders have not gotten to this point, so things are on the table in the same position as they were left the last employees of this huge research institutes.
A Room with a large number of grinding machines. On such machines Quartz crystal plate was polished, and the crystals.
In jars, presumably, sanding or polishing paste. Nearby lie the machine the workpiece.
hood. This room is different from all the pictures of the Disney cartoons, which are likely to have caused the staff.
The room with the ordinary obscure units.
On the ground floor there is a shop with a large number of grinding machines.
According to the majority of the ground floor rooms, one can assume that there were all kinds of sanding work.
Microscopes have been in every other room.
Apparently, employees have realized that production will soon come to an end.
For some reason in most things are the white crosses.
Another room with grinding equipment.
As I understand, in the machine rotates faceplate, and on her polished plate.
The next room was closed, but from the grinding shop was a small window, through which we got in the room for X-rays.
It is being tested for possible manufacturing defects.
Time is less and less, and interesting rooms more and more. But yet even the first floor is not examined before the end. Pay attention to a rather big piece of crystal on the table.
plates. They are all different thicknesses and sizes.
Very small room, stabbed equipment.
Finally, the first floor inspected, and we climb higher on the ladder. The second and third are closed, and the time to find ways to get them anymore, so we examine the fourth floor, where there are a few open doors.
On this floor are concentrated laboratory, administration offices and a variety of minor repairs electronics.
In addition to drawing instruments, there were catalogs of products. The main products in the catalog are based jewelry semiprecious artificial minerals. But because of various papers, it became clear that in addition to this produced a lot of things in the Institute else. For example, synthetic diamonds, piezoelectric resonators, Acoustoelectronic device acoustic lines.
room full of different parts for electronics. There were two on the floor such.
Small archive. State such that there are more employees, but, alas, they are here already more than a year did not appear.
Time is very little, and we decide to turn on the light to accelerate the capture, hoping that the guards asleep and did not notice anything.
Old computer. I think if you turn it on, it will still work.
A small collection of minerals, in the offices on this floor, they quite often come across.
Then we have the feeling that we are not in NII climbed, and in someone's apartment, and the owner is about to come.
But the flowers convince us that everything is in order and no one will come.
Another mineral specimens. In the closet all the books on the subjects of geology and mineralogy.
Now we finally understand that it is time to leave, or at the exit from the territory can get under the bypass and spend the morning at the nearest branch. And this is not the best end of this exciting night.
Inspect all, unfortunately, failed, even half we did not see, but I think that's where we'll be back. But safety should not be changed, still more than a year is already building.
