Cover story by me, Bogdana Vashchenko, illustrated with photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin in National Geographic (Georgia) about cave dwelling creatures, and also about issues appeared for the prominent touristic Prometheus cave and how to fix them.
Congratulations to Viktor Lyagushkin with publication in the VIEW Magazine. Editors featured one of his stunning photographs from the Third Element Project displaying bright weird pattern of the walls of the labyrinth of Sylvinite mine located at depth -400 m (Urals, Russia). Sylvinite was well known from the middle ages but its real value was discovered in 20th century. Potassium fertilisers produced of the sylvinite saved many countries of famine and crop failure.
Mini feature in National Geographic Russia Magazine Oct 2014, dedicated to ice caves, describing kinds of ice and snow collecting in caves, explaining what characteristics and case should meet a cave to become a storage of cold.
Our leader, photographer Viktor Lyagushkin is amongst them. Thank you, Alexander, for your warm words, we are proud to work with you and your Magazine. And hope our collaboration will be even more fruitful in the future.
The team of speleologists descended the cave to monitor the state of the glacier.
The cave is covered with ice all year round. Relict cave glacier records climate changes, keeping centuries in its memory. Also bones of cave bear had been found in the cave.
