The Soviet Union’s Abandoned Nuclear Test Cities

For 20th Century doomscapes nothing quite holds a candle to the skeletal remains of secret Soviet scientific cities and missile test sites. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:

Nadav Kander began a three year survey of secret Soviet scientific cities and missile test sites when he learned of the existence of two “closed” cities on the border between Kazakhstan and Russia that tickled his curiosity for secrecy and his interest in the aesthetics of destruction. This fascination then took him from East Kazakhstan to the desolated landscapes of the Aral Sea. The restricted military zones of Priozersk and Kurtchatov did not appear on any map until well after the end of the Cold War. Long-distance missiles were tested in Priozersk, only known at the same time as “Moscow 10”, under great secrecy. Hundreds of atomic bombs were detonated in the so-called “Plygon” near Kurchatov until the program ended in 1989. The bombs were exploded in a remote but still populated area, and convert studies were made of the effects of the radiation on the unsuspecting inhabitants. He was then drawn to the bleak Aral Sea where there had been a military presence in the area, which had been responsible for launching the missiles used in the development of the defense systems in Moscow 10.
