Sumgait

From the series “Top 14 Most Polluted Cities of the Planet”
From the ecological point of view, the cities of the world are worth mentioning the Azerbaijani city Sumgait - the great center of the chemical industry. According to 2012, about 285 thousand people live in the city, many of which work in the industrial sector. Gradually, the chemical industry was not the main industry of the city; In Sumgait, today there are large machine builders, food processing companies, as well as the major centers that produce the building materials.
The townspeople and the industrial representatives are extremely curious about the statements about the bad influence of the farms on ecology. The city dwellers do not want to believe that their city is facing the huge ecological disaster and reject any reports from the ecologists. Over the last decade, a series of events have been held in the city to promote environmental support. But they can not be compared with the extent of the industrial development sumgaits.

All the formations had the same structure and were clearly divided on two halves with the deep gating.
The scientists involved in meteorite research immediately drew the parallel between the discovery of Mamedov and the mysterious Salzburg meteorite because their sections were similar. To the research targets, it was decided to split pairs of spheres. All the balls selected were easily split along the joint.
The base of the spheres was aluminum and less than 20% of the structure was the uniform alloy of the magnetite particles. The complex kimposition of the balls completely excluded the possibility of their natural origin. 21 balls of the same diameter and the identical structure, the regular shape and the symmetrical division with the fugue - these arguments testify that the mysterious bullets from Bulla Island could not form in the natural way and were most probably not created by humans . ...
