For no reason other than it’s amazing and terrifying - the Mirny diamond mine in Siberia. The winter temperatures were so low that car tires and steel would shatter and oil would freeze. During the winter, workers used jet engines to thaw and dig out the permafrost or blasted it with dynamite to get access to the underlying kimberlite. #Repost @brutgroup
