I hope Jay still thinks this is as cool as I do. I spent last week on a tour of the Kola Peninsula, leading a group of international students. While we were in Murmansk we somehow managed to get access to the very-off-limits Atomflot base to take a tour of a nuclear icebreaker. As we arrived at the base, I suddenly saw the Admiral Kuznyetsov, Russia's only remaining aircraft carrier loom into view. I snapped a quick photo from the bus, but we were strictly forbidden from taking photos inside the base where we were barely 50 meters from the behemoth.
Nevertheless, I took a spyshot out the window of the window of the icebreaker towards the Lotta, a floating base for spent nuclear fuel from submarines and icebreakers, and the surrounding storage area. You can check out all the photos from the trip in PhotoSpace.
