This nation is such a valuable resource to our planet and proof that even conditions as harsh as they are in Russia can produce an economy, social infrastructure and true gentlemenly sportsman competitiveness the envy of any national educated world to the standard of pioneer degree. Such a proud country steeped in historical content, magical fantasy of a winner's breed, a connection to our planet which is arguably the modern world's leader of a natural, 'the' natural nature religion which is paganism.
Russia, a country known around the world for it's beautiful women, fantastic art of exceptional technique, architecture of classical proportions, musical genius, theatres of fine antiquity, furniture of the highest calibre, jewellery of masterful conception... and Vodka!!!

Best known for the "Faberge Easter Eggs" he designed for the Russian royal family, Carl Faberge (1846-1920) was the jeweller and designer of choice for royalty, dignitaries, and the wealthy around the world, from the late 1800s until the Russian Revolution of 1917.
[Etoile egg/Star egg]
Peter Carl Faberge (Karl Gustavovich in Russian) was born on May 30, 1846, in St. Petersburg, Russia. He was the older of two sons of Gustav and Charlotte (Jungstedt) Faberge. His mother was the daughter of a Danish painter, and his father was a jeweller and goldsmith. As noted on the Imperial Court, Inc. website, tradition at that time dictated that young Carl, as the older son, would follow in his father's footsteps and become a jeweller and goldsmith.
Young Faberge began his education at St. Anne's Gymnasium, the German school in St. Petersburg. When he was 18, his father, wanting him to have excellent training for his career, sent him out to explore the world.
Peter Carl Fabergé (1846 - 1920) Goldsmith to the Imperial Court of Russia
Russian goldsmith and jeweller. Among his masterpieces was a series of jewelled Easter eggs, one of the first of which was commissioned by Alexander III for the tsarina in 1884.
His workshops in St Petersburg and Moscow were celebrated for the exquisite delicacy of their products, especially the use of gold in various shades. Under his leadership, Fabergé became the largest jewellery firm in the world employing a team of around 500 designers, goldsmiths, gem-cutters, modellers and enamellers. [Faberge Moscow 1886].
Because this is the business that I have spent 22 years studying and earned a master's degree with I must say that the exceptionally gifted Carl Faberge is an exceptional intellectual and as someone who has studied some of his work, but, I have have not had the pleasure of working with his modern workshop's or designer's, or gem broker's, It would be incredible for the public to have an idea of how much historical content has been crafted into Faberge's 'unique' item's.
When I complete my studies of gemmology I shall be returning to the business and, I shall be designing items of this particular standard, but, of course the standard of history involved with the item's produced is of P.H.D history standard itself and I'm not sure if the Faberge modern workshop's have anyone to compete with the sort of business experience crafted into the art of our business [from the soil to the window], and so, it is imperitive for me to continue to observe all of the work leaving the Faberge workshop as so as to compile modern historic advocacy of this ancient craft.
Many perhaps have wondered, perhaps not among as many churches and museums as I have what all of the history of jewellery craftman's craftmanship will lead us to and why we are intreaged with it, but, for me, it is obvious that we on this planet have an interest in gemmology and it's various crafts practice's which are translated to the public. On the eve of space exploration which is where my studies take me next on my own personal journey and adventure the quest for mining deposit's of unknown quantities and variations is absolutely tantalising for a gemmological historian.
Of course, there will not be a lot of companies that will have the money to explore other planetoid's immediately, but, certainly the mining sector will have interest's.
History of the House of Faberge
In 1872, Peter Carl Faberge took over his father's jewelry workshop, which had been established in St. Petersburg in 1842. His technical mastery as a goldsmith put him on par with the world's most renowned jewelers. He drew his inspiration from the art of earlier generations which he found in the well-stocked treasury of the Hermitage. As Supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia, Faberge is best known for his unique series of 50 jeweled Imperial Easter eggs dating from 1885-1916. His patrons included most of the world's royalty and other wealthy clientele of his time.
Faberge's creative genius and his quest for originality, combined with his supreme technical mastery are the hallmarks of his distinctive style. His immensely popular Objects of fantasy can be seen in some of the world's most important museums and private collections. Outstanding among these are the collections of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II and Forbes Magazine.

For most SETI [search for extra terrestrial intelligence] enthusiast's this amazing acheivement was the cornerstone of modern astronomy regarding radio signal penetration and behaviour outside of our surface to air lower atmospheric range. It's accomplishment provided data not only on radio-signal distribution in the ionosphere, but, a number of significant first time event human advancements. Apart from confirming to the general public that, laugh or not, it is possible to put intelligence rec eiving and transmitting communication systems in orbit, it would be true to say that the Russian rocket scientist's actually made possible near instantaneous satelite broadcasting and communication i.e paving the way for international telephone and television networks, such is the tremendous talent of our evolving world science.
It was launched into an elliptical low earth orbit by the Soviet Union on 4 October 1957, and was the first in a series of satellites collectively known as the Sputnik program.
Apart from its value as a technological first, Sputnik also helped to identify the upper atmospheric layer's density, through measuring the satellite's orbital changes.
Pressurized nitrogen, in the satellite's body, provided the first opportunity for meteoroid detection. If a meteoroid penetrated the satellite's outer hull, it would be detected by the temperature data sent back to Earth, HEY... WE PROVED THIS DREAM IS BIGGER THAN A MIRROR ON THE SKY!
Sputnik-1 was launched during the International Geophysical Year from Site No.1, at the 5th Tyuratam range, in Kazakh SSR (now at the Baikonur Cosmodrome). The satellite travelled at 29,000 kilometers (18,000 mi) per hour, taking 96.2 minutes to complete an orbit, and emitted radio signals at 20.005 and 40.002 MHz which were monitored by amateur radio operators throughout the world. The signals continued for 22 days until the transmitter batteries ran out on 26 October 1957. Sputnik 1 burned up on 4 January 1958, as it fell from orbit upon reentering Earth's atmosphere, after travelling about 60 million km (37 million miles) and spending 3 months in orbit.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov an ambassador of literature, giving us simple lesson's and idea's about the issue's of life that sometimes baffle even the cleverist of people. A very worthy author with a prolific moral story telling virtue.
This example of Chekhov literature show's us what money can bring to relationship's that are happy without it, what planning a future without money guarantee's, but, what uncertaintie's await with the trivial mondane approach to the concept of ''winning the lottery''...
I guess it is like how some of us people who have a dream of going into space, but, can't afford get while watching the cost of space travel gradually become more realistic, but, will it be cheap enough while we're still alive... Lol...!!!
Some opinion's of Chekhov's story ''The lottery ticket''.
This paper discusses how Anton Chekhov demonstrates that the mere thought of money can severely impact a personal relationship in his short story, "The Lottery Ticket." An older couple with a family holds what could be a winning lottery ticket, but resists checking the numbers while they daydream about what they might do with the money. It examines how, at first, their reaction to the possibility of wealth is joyful; but rather than share their dreams and communicate their wishes, it looks at how Ivan Dmitritch and his wife, Masha, recede into their own worlds. It attempts to show how money definitely does not buy love and how, in fact, it has the potential to destroy it.
From the Paper
"Ivan Dmitritch, who is described as "middle class man who lived with his family," had not previously believed in playing the lottery. Therefore, it was Masha who purchased the ticket. Her holding of the ticket is significant to this story because it signifies power. Ivan reveals his association of money with power when he tells his wife, "It's not money, but power, capital!" Though the couple has not even won, they perceive the mere potential of winning as a source of power. Ivan gradually comes to resent the power that Masha holds, manifested in the lottery ticket. Knowing that because she purchased the ticket she deserves to make the decisions about how to spend the money, Ivan begins to feel threatened."
Peter the great
When I think of Russia, Peter the great is always at the front of my thought's, a natural leader of men, not so just because of his height of 6.8ft, but, as a youth he developed a confidence that was to drive Russia into a continuation of a communication process with europe and it's faster evolving invention's. Peter himself an avid traveler, noble and an art historian of noteble dexterity, contrived to build upon the empiracal organisation skills that the Romanov's built into the frame of Russia. I would dearly like to emphaise my admiration which would serve only as to fall in line with all the european Kings and queen's noteably admission's of his title, which among much turmoil was fought, won and maintained.
As I write this summary I call upon some of my earlier education remembering the later crusades of which much of the trade route's from the mongolian border were re-established for reliable business routes to the Baltic sea and black sea suring the middle east business of peppers and spices, cotton's and silks, but, as a sturdy man of significant application, more importantly the ancient practice treasury in the church.

Peter the great built many of the historic architectual building's that utilise the old Mongolian Persian type building designs with the newer opaque spacious conformity to regal platonic geometry administration establishments.
Vladimir lennin Undoubtedly one of the most known men of recent history, it is apparant that many of the 20th century revolution's were with communist countrie's, but, If we look a little closer of the actual virtue attempting to implement itself we see a pattern that continue's to pose a question with modern day economic's.
We see vast swaths of wealth hoarding with particular secular group's of people and it really is frightening to consider that poverty exemplifie's a man still starving on his home planet after several thousand's of years building on it and enhabitting it.
In such a fierce climotologically demanding region pestilence the true test of manhood and his stamina and temperance to survive we look around and ask is revolution such a crazy thing in an evolving world desperate for equality and the basic fundamental's available to all.
I would certainly consider the conatation's of a federation governed and totally manned and administrated on behalf of our race. We still sit in front of the television watching starvation in Africa and in other region's of the world.
It make's people angry and surely causes controversy...
What will we do on other planet's? We all have the knowledge that space travel will be available to us at some stage, but, will we be able to afford a house off planet?
Will we be bringing money?
I think those issues surfaced for a reason, and here on the eve of space travel they certainly have there weight to issues that we as a collective have failed to deal with maturely and sensibly.

When we start planting flowers on other planetoids it will be the flowers that have the strength to adapt to the new atmospheric situation. Because Russia is a country bordering the north pole it's proximity to birkeland current's give it credible source's of positron distiction for neuclide stimulation that will enevitably be the starting source for photosynthesis [creating an atmosphere].

When we start planting flowers on other planets I have no doubt that some of them will be named after Russian men that will be immortal to us because of there service to mankind. Thank you Yuri, you are an absolute hero to many, many, many men and women.

Winter gardening, or, winter flowers and shrubs are a great way to add a little spring cheer to the long cold months, or, for our purpose the beginning's of photosynthesis [converting liquid organic solids to gas from light]. Starting a winter garden is usually carried out before the first frost hits. There are a number of Orangeville flowers that will bloom during the cold and harsh months.
For explorers and scientist's, when choosing which flower seeds you will purchase, it is important to know which flower's will bloom in rough weather conditions such as extreme cold.
The following are the different kinds of flower seeds that will bloom in the winter:
Flower Bulbs: If you are partial to flower bulbs, there are a number of different bulbs that will bloom in the winter. Various bulbs include: Snowdrops, Snow Crocus, Daffodils, Cyclamen, and Hyacinth. There are also spring blooming bulbs such as Tulips can be made to bloom during the dark and cold months.
Camellia sasanqua: The Camellia sasanqua contains an abundance of attractive apple blossom type flowers. The types of Camellia sasanqua that contain the words ‘winter’ or ’snow’ in their name can bloom and endure at temperatures of about -5 F.
Winter Heaths: These flowers can thrive in very cold temperatures. These evergreens will produce small bell shaped flowers that can be reddish purple, magenta, and pink in color. Types such as the Erica carnea and E. darleyensis can bloom in temperatures from -20F to -25F. Heath has a very distinctive appearance and makes for a great ground cover plant.
Honeysuckle: There are different varieties of the Honeysuckle that can bloom in cold temperatures. Types of honeysuckles that bloom in very chilly temperatures include: Lonicera fragrantissima and Lonicera x purpusii (Winter Beauty.)
Wintersweet: The Wintersweet is well known for its lovely scent. When properly cared for, it can eventually reach 12 feet in height. Between December and March, the C. praecox (C. Fragrans) variety produces cup-shaped yellow flowers that have purple centers. The ‘Grandiflorus’ type blooms in late winter and contains red centers. [Picture of Snowcrocus]

Witch Hazel: The Witch Hazel is another flower that can bloom during the cold dreary months. It produces lightly scented yellow or red flowers. Depending on the type, Witch Hazel is a shrub that blooms from late fall to late winter, Vernal Witch Hazel, Orange Witch Hazel, and Common Witch Hazel are three popular types of flowers that are often maintained during the frigid months.[Picture of Snowdrops]
Hellebore: Often referred to as the Lenten Rose, the evergreen leaves of the Hellebore are deep green on the top and red underneath. The colors of the flowers can be white, purple, green, red, and almost black. From November to March, the Hellebore’s clump of bell-shaped flowers will bloom.
Oleaster: Regularly referred to as Russian olive, when the Oleaster blooms, it first produces small white flowers, and then it produces berries that are fit for human consumption. This evergreen can reach up to 10 or 12 feet in height. It is more suitable for environmental conditions near the shore.

Maintaining blooming flowers during the winter requires time and great care. By choosing robust flower seeds that can handle the cold temperatures, you can add color and vibrancy to the long and dreary cold months.
"Soyuz-ST" launch vehicle
Is today the most successful and reliable rocket regularly used. Russian launch programs have been successful mounting an international plateau for what we now consider the start of world unification converging to what we hope to be some day a federation of planets utilising mankind's intelligence for the betterment and advancement of our species.
"Soyuz-ST” launch vehicle is developed on the bases of “Sayuz-2” launch vehicle and design for commercial spacecraft launches from Kourou launching site (French Guiana).
“Soyuz-ST” launch vehicle is adapted in compliance with the requirements of Kourou Space Centre in terms of safety (uplink commands to stop the flight), telemetry system (UHF transmitters with European IRIG format for telemetry frame) operational environment (high humidity, sea transportation and others).
“Soyuz-ST” launch vehicle is equipped with ST-type Nose Fairing, meeting international demands. When used with “Fregat” kick stage it will enable to orbit a wide range of Payloads, men, satelites and scientific orbiter's i.e. graviton screening, neuclide measuring, positron cloud detection, planetary core activity imaging and gravitation feild observing equipment.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky became a Russian voice among the peoples community with his urging of patriotism uniting knowledge of all that is strenthening about a community that needs sturdy encouragement while braving the elements of change brought from the natural resurgence of the circling universe. Among a sea, a ship and a helm...
Dostoyevski, the writer of his first noteable book ''poor people'' was laying the path to all that the Russian people stand for and so desperately fought to establish with the work of the great period czars encompassing the righteous work ethic endemic to a pioneering breed of people pulling empires out of the snow.
Pulling the agricultural community from the country farm peasantry of the clutches of the last tzars must be a story as large as the russian land mass itself, if just the truth of a scattered bunch of hardship plough shackled tough men and rigid women veined in the love of the warmth of their blood, the russian cavalry dismantled yet still existing after 1812 revolution and nicholas II perilous scandal of administering heritage families to a land smelling a changing european elite wafting from the echos of Parisian politics. The giant who walked the land and singlehandedly pulled man, woman, boy and girl into the industrial age and through it from the remnants of the age of enlightenment, if only for his own manly pride barren of deceit and skull duggery for the truth of what was to become a mighty modern ethic spanning the globe inside the shadow of its illustrious character residing fortitude for the machines of steel that put the russian man in space ships. Anything right will tell you, that's a right man.
Joseph Stalin would surely be a proud man, a Russian man, a human man considering the respect Russia has earnt with it's hard work solid committed ethic that gives Russia a staunchness required for space evolution and development whether it be an industrial space development or a rigidness required for harsh conditioned colonising an infrastructure world reknowned for it's solid practical approach.
Perhap's Joseph Stalin inspired men from Russia will seek to create from it's own empirical empire a federation which encapsulates the essence of space exploration for all humanity to embrace as one unified species of differing cultures all with the same work ethic to survival, human maintenance, community building and the sheer awe of rocket science.
