The message down the ages
There has been made a decision to preserve letters of soldiers from WWII for future generations. The metal containers will be kept in one of the clefts of Altai glacier called Big Aktru. In order to get containers to their place the mountain-climbers had to cover very dangerous route. “Here at this glacier we can see yellow spots of snow we call them snow bridges and they are very dangerous if you push or step on it you can fall down at a depth of 100 meters. That’s why we move carefully and if we see those bridges we stay away from them”, says the head of expedition Aleksey Urov. When the mountain-clumbers reach their destination they organize the system of fast descent and raise and they made a decision to put the containers at a depth of 40 meters because it is very risky to go deeper. According to nsknews.info in a week the walls of the glacier will close up but the containers with letters won’t be damaged. The specialists say that letters will be kept there for 200 years and after they will be brought out to the surface.
