6:30 pm
carrier for the one nine hundred sixty games in the us was designed by engineer. aerodynamic enough to allow it to be. transmitted by a satellite that was transported underwater at the great barrier reef before the two thousand sydney games. by plane and train maker. has been specially designed but the gravity. of the shape the body is made of aluminum and a total of one point eight kilograms the flame is powered by propane tank. was designed by rocket. only plant given the stakes. want to make sure everything works exactly as it should. first of all. under any condition
6:31 pm
and it must immediately it has to function. in temperatures lower than forty five degrees below zero it has to work properly with blowing from. the front. it has to work in the rain or any other whether. the torch has to function in. where there is low pressure which is important. to which is it will be produced especially for this purpose. the torch can be used to light the cauldron in sochi next year it's got quite a busy travel schedule ahead of it it will make its way all over russia be carried by many of the country's biggest personalities the list of those will likely. sidelines their compatriots. into competition.
6:32 pm
and. it will be taken.
6:33 pm
but that's only half the story here. train station. in. the first. on the way to the top this
6:34 pm
station for all intents and purposes just about ready for action at the base of the ski jumping center it will be the main stop for those looking to catch some major air. station will help some twenty thousand fans of their high altitude destinations each hour. only heavy machinery and supplies are being tugged up and down the line train by the time two thousand and fourteen rolls around new electric ones along at speeds up to one hundred sixty kilometers an hour thirty minutes from bottom to top is your high speed to get all of the olympic projects under detailed expert review to make sure that they don't unnecessarily threaten the environment or spectators. center off in the distance russian technology is being used for that very purpose.
6:35 pm
the longest track in the world. in the whole of russia. it was built from the ground up already. to make sure everything is working smoothly in anticipation of the world's attention the technology required to create such breathtaking displays. giving ice at just the right temperature and consistency is a major part of the task. so far the results speak for themselves. i like the track the ice is getting better every day is becoming. i think the track was designed properly. in the case safety on and around the course is really priority number one. there are three inclined to help keep over the top speed. keep an eye on the potentially dangerous chemicals used to make the track traditionally ammonia and freon have been the two
6:36 pm
main ways to keep big things cool. refrigerator have always been valued for the relatively low cost as well as better cooling that's been balanced against their overpowering smell and serious toxicity on the other hand. and is totally odorless which actually may make three leaks more difficult to spot. and recent decades destroying qualities have become better known a major reason. to. freon doesn't have any kind of smell. it's quite a heavy gas and in case of major leaks it settles down to the ground. out. there so if they enter a room with a freon leak they can experience oxygen deficiency which may result in something or even death. dangerous
6:37 pm
for. pumping throughout. the company responsible for producing first. in case they have three levels depending on the concentration of whole sections of the piping can be closed off. these systems it would take fifteen to sixteen minutes for information about emergencies to reach those who needed it at times it was even covered up now it's impossible to conceal this kind of data. the company actually developed some produces a wide array of different detecting sensors they run the gamut from electro chemical catalytic to acoustic the heart they all have fast acting technology through calibration and testing here at. the ready to be plugged in for round the clock contamination monetary.
6:38 pm
it's constantly running constantly doing what it's supposed to. the case of an emergency within forty seconds. transmitted to trigger the warning system and allows the necessary measures to be taken it all happens very quickly. all the data from such sensors. and branches of the country's emergency services ministry. information from the connected. stations like this. and another pair of. monitors failed to spot a problem those federal watchdog should be able to react in real time. to record breaking feats. where the ongoing construction and coming influx of sports mad. power grid was in need of much.
6:39 pm
of transmission power. station was built in two thousand. construction on the surrounding area it's. popping up in the area after it given the sometimes twenty degrees temps engineers how much of the machinery behind closed doors. including the federal grid company has increased the number of substations many times over the. transformers are already hooked in and deliver the right voltage to the mountain venue sites while under construction is said to be ready for action this march at the same time six more have been built provide the juice to the coastal. and surrounding areas. updated. on the olympics. over the past few years. the
6:40 pm
constant. projects have been completed and. the. safe. stations have to give an extra. capacity to. produce. that the clean. fuel for. one hundred seventy two kilometers about one hundred sixty of. about four and a half kilometers.
6:41 pm
absolutely. but the cut. from the equation. it gives. to the. station. fifty
6:42 pm
6:43 pm
. this is is
6:44 pm
able to generate. to compensate for spikes in energy consumption. the. choice is head which is currently. the company is a joint venture between. the. solar power technology. and the past decade the new head. which are able to harness. between one hundred twenty five and one hundred fifty five such panels could eventually have. panels. or crystal. silicone
6:45 pm
inside. edition's. produce modules will be able to capture the whole spectrum of sunlight into energy to. allow them to harness both in. the form and some thirty percent. of course the performance. we do have sophisticated. scientists working on the premises of. choice when you consider that the campus has long been. an innovation new facilities have sprung up including a special. energy technologies. maybe in the position.
6:46 pm
potentially deadly blizzard taking aim for the northeast it's expected to hit stunning in a few hours from new york to maine we have team coverage of the storm. but what we're watching is the very heavy snow moving into boston proper earlier today it was very sticky you can see it start to become much more connery down the line there's still a lot of snow out here a good place for snowball fight. jason it is kind of pretty incredible day there and even record snowfall throughout what's been like nobody's luxury driving lessons of emergency vehicles are exceptions.
6:47 pm
wealthy british style. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy with cars or for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines kaiser reports. more news today violence is once again flared up the film these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. corporations are today.

mission creep couldn't take three months for charges free. range month
6:49 pm
three. three stooges free. and free blog. for your media projects free media. the most hard road to top for any of the sun here in russia have added an experimental exercise already in week training regimen. it seems cruel but despite all the hard work blood sweat and tears the majority of aspiring athletes will never reach these peaks of professional sport but that researchers working with the university of physical culture and sport in moscow are looking to harness the latest technology to get aspiring athletes over that hump is potentially dangerous
6:50 pm
and illegal doping isn't an option the new secret to success may lie in element ever present in the air we breathe but longer overlooked. was discovered over one hundred years ago by sir william ramsey and morse travers' a novel finding certainly practical applications for the one nine hundred thirty s. when it found use in high speed flash photography and a bit later as an anesthetic an operations. high cost prevented it from being adopted by the medicine that all could be changing. thanks to work being carried out here at the institute of medical and biological problems xenon could be on the verge of a major revival. amongst the hyperbaric chambers where many of the country's divers and astronauts have gone through pressure chamber tests and training. docs are taking a look at just what xenon has to offer. in recent years what used to
6:51 pm
be observable favorable side effects of xenon base and has become objects of inquiry in their own right. exactly how the gas interacts with receptors is still under study initial trials and experiments have shown that xenon and its neuroprotective properties can relieve stress anxiety and even help addicts get over withdrawal symptoms. and if we talk about the production of xenon in russia there's no better place to look than in the business for over twenty years it ships its goods all over the globe company officials placed their market share at around one quarter of total demand. for most of their history though the company has primarily dealt with so-called technical xenon that is not for human ingestion but over the years as the gases and medical benefits have grown the demand for peers seen on has followed accordingly. and other noble gases are all around us all of the time they just in such small
6:52 pm
quantities that getting our hands on them requires sophisticated machinery and no small dose of know how as a result there's a very limited number of countries currently able to capture scene on and put it to use for human kind. you know if for me to portray it as all of those who are only human producers worldwide extracted from air but there are only five countries they produce it commercially the united states france germany russia and ukraine. is a by product of production it's large mental or physical factories for its plants special air separating machines oxygen and also generate as an encrypted mixture as a byproduct of the next of those to gases is then shipped to us for further finding which we manufacture zenon for made. purposes the encrypted mixture requires extra puti cation. and they will produce is ninety nine point nine nine nine nine
6:53 pm
percent edition lee we also limit the share of harmful impurities in the gas our refining technology isn't paid indeed unique and allows us to remove all these impurities entity in pure medical xenon it can further be used for surgeries and all kinds of other treatments and. at the end of the process they get nearly ready to be sent on to clinics and hospitals under the brand name med at the moment is still rather expensive especially when compared with other and statics. proponents argue that when you take into account problems in complications associated with other knockout gases the prices come closer together but before the medical xenon gets into the hands of a qualified doctor every batch is tested and checked for purity. requires them to control for six kinds of impurities they go the extra mile and control for a full tin as a result the level of impurities in the medical xenon produced here is around two
6:54 pm
to three times lower than regulators demand. every year we discover a new particular overusing xenon as in an authentic as a result we're figuring out at the absolutely new way still plays in this is a truly unique medicine it is totally harmless to humans but at the same time it is still very powerful and it can be used to treat just about any organ in the body depending on what the problem is with but with. medical xenon has many potential applications researchers here are specifically interested in how we can improve the performance of athletes they recently organize an experiment to lay the groundwork for future use in sports. to be a very. in other words cases involving stress whether it be acute a chronic stress the best way to deal with it is small therapeutic doses of this
6:55 pm
substance and when we talk about spilled before competition and needs to relax sleep well and improve he's a functional capacities with this experiment we're trying to see just how xenon can help him. for a ten day period a group of young athletes were given a controlled dose of and had a healthy. research is allowing doctors and scientists to better understand how the gas actually interacts with the body's organisms as well as working out the best way to incorporate into one's workout after taking in the gas the experiments the subjects would spend a night in a controlled environment with. more closely. to see what the results of the experiment looked like from the athlete side of the coin and one of the. training across the country in.
6:56 pm
two thousand and fourteen in his mind the short experiment and a noticeable effect. after the experiment in the hyperbaric chamber it was much easier for me to train and i was able to recover much more quickly afterwards. during the test trainings at my ski club i posted the best results. more experiments are planned for later this year but of course it will take. breathing sessions to get to these guys level both the first results and hand researchers hope that they've done their part to bring hardware back home this time next year. old to be used. in professional sports. it's going to be passed on to two physicians and hopefully they will be able to use it to help athletes get.
6:57 pm
back at the olympic park the venues like the bolshoi are already completed and starting to host their preliminary test events earlier this month the main hockey arena was packed to the gills not for any competition but to mark the start of the final countdown. decent amount of entertaining performances as well as speeches by international sports chiefs and national leaders there's not a minute. much less a second to waste. keeping one county into the ceremony. actually we. will see you next time.
