Sneaking Into A Russian Military Rocket Factory

rocketWhen you walk by a topnotch military rocket factory and notice that there are no guards on duty, it’s an opportunity for fun. A set of unbelievable photos, via Gizmodo:

Her name is Lana Sator and she snuck into one of NPO Energomash factories outside of Moscow. Her photos are amazing, like sets straight out of Star Wars or Alien. Now the Russian government is harassing her.

It was easy to get in. She just went there, jumped over the fence and got right into the heart of the complex through a series of tunnels and pipes, which was very surprising. After all, this is an active industrial installation that belongs to one of the top manufacturers of liquid-fuel rockets in the world.

And yet, she found nobody. No guards, no security. Nothing. Just a few CCTV cameras here and there in rooms packed with huge machinery.

While some of these zones look decrepit and abandoned, the factory is active. In fact, the government is really pissed off about Lana’s adventure. The authorities have sent her letters saying that her situation will get “much worse” if she keeps posting photos from the factory.

But Lana doesn’t seem to give a damn about it. She posted the letters on her site, which makes me want to go to Moscow, become her friend and party hard for a whole week. This girl is cooler and more badass than I will ever be.

    Makes me wonder how much of that nuclear stockpile was sold off when the former Soviet Union collapsed.  Come on even supermarkets have security. The factory looking inactive is the perfect cover for manufacturing weapons for the black market.  The government ( a.k.a mob) is pissed because now they have to change their location and cut into their ‘overhead’ for producing ‘war toys’.

        You, sir, are a fucktard.

        Perhaps you should research British English and its punctuation rules before attempting to fill the role of a grammar nazi.
