Urbex at Space Monkeys Institute

Interesting visit in abandoned laboratory complex situated somewhere in the disputed territory and partially recognized state of Abkhazia located on the eastern coast of the Black Sea and the south-western flank of the Caucasus.The Institute is widely believed to have been the the home of a freakish Stalin-era experiment in inseminating female monkeys with human sperm, with the aim of creating a strong-bodied, weak-brained subcaste to help build the glorious Soviet future. The Institute has fallen on hard times but hopes for a revival based on participation in Russia’s Mars-500 project, which is preparing for possible future Mars expeditions. Few quick shots could barely grasp the volume of such a place!
