Artificial Owl


I just discovered this great blog that features abandoned man-made creations.  Each post features a set of pictures and some history on the structure.  By far the coolest post so far, is on the abandoned secret Russian underground submarine base in the Ukraine. There is nothing cooler than a secret underground lair where you keep submarines!

You can read about the town and base here and see the pictures here. Also interesting is the abadoned Sea-Arama Marineworld, an animal/entertainment park near Peter’s current location.

He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (, a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web. His forthcoming book, Science of the South (, connects cultural icons of South such as pecan pie with the science behind them.

  1. Wow this is a pretty cool I have to say, as for that abandoned Marine World is also quiet cool what happened to the animals, its really sad to read that this had to make way for a bigger and newer place. That submarine place is also a bit creepy I don’t think that this is a place that I would want to visit any time soon.
