Putin got to play around in a deep diving submarine. He took advantage of the occasion to inspect potentially valuable gas crystals at the bottom of Lake Baikal.
“I haven’t seen anything like that in my whole life. This is a very special feeling,” Putin told reporters upon emerging, looking pale and a bit dizzy after spending more than 4 1/2 hours underwater. Asked if he planned to travel in space after his supersonic flight and deep-sea dive, Putin, dressed in blue overalls, said, “No, there is enough work here on earth.”
Scientists estimate that Baikal hydrates contain over 1 trillion cubic meters of gas, an amount comparable with the world’s largest discovered gas fields.
How come he gets to do all the neat stuff in life anyway?
Windows to Russia!
