This Girl Snuck Into a Russian Military Rocket Factory

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. Their engines power the modern Soyuz, the Zenit 3SL, and the Angara and Baikal launch vehicles. Heck, their RD-180 engine powers the first stage of the Atlas V, an American rocket. More importantly, they have specially strong ties to the Russian military.

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.

That or she's crazy.

I don't care. Whatever it is, I love her.



This shot is absolutely spectacular. It looks like an abandoned core in the Death Star.

Lana. Not only she's badass, but mighty cute.

Anyone knows what this may be? Apart from a massive structure made of pure awesome, I mean.


They keep the baby Sarlaccs here.


Massive pipes in perfect state.

This is some pretty incredible work. Thanks for all the Star Wars references too, Badai Wink

Almost looks like they are making more then rockets. It's quite funny though.

Its quite impressive of Lana to first of all sneak into a military rocket factory,a nd secondly to defy the government as well.
Fortunately for her, its not the Gorbachov era where she would be most likely to have received extreme measures, such as probably disappeared by now, and her site run down. Rolling Eyes

What is shocking to me is to find that there was lack of security in these installations, that anyone can take pictures of, and probably even sabotage the place, or copy their ideas / scemas / engineering mechanisms etc to make one of their own elsewhere. - Perhaps that is why the Goverment is trying to force her to stop the pictures, not just for the embarassing lack of security at the factory, but also for opposing countries to figure out the technology from the pictures itself.

The pictures are quite impressive, and yes, I agree that some of them look like science fiction. Just glad it isnt a death star. Laughing
