Rocket debris scavengers in Russia

Wed Oct 02, 2019 10:37 am

An interesting report from the area around Plesetsk. Hunters are looking out for debris, use circular saws to cut the boosters apart, and from the metal sheets, they create boats, sheds and other stuff.

It's a fitting counterpart to the rocket that built on a Texas farm.

Missiles and rockets have extremely thin skins, even thinner than the skin or an airpane. I would trust a boat or shelter built from them.
