in the world by ultra light. this tiny aircraft weighs less than five hundred kilos of speeds of up to one hundred seventy kilometers per hour it can fly at three thousand meters where from such altitudes you can examine the bottom of the lake because of the clear waters and his four cameras fixed to be afraid. it's not just a scientific endeavor but a personal one. what winds of fate brought the young scientists to the bike out region it all began with a minor research trip. here quite by chance i came up with the idea of experiments. in the world's oceans there are a lot of organisms that exposed to the light of a certain spectrum range emit light of a different range and i wondered if this was also the case with the lake.
6:31 am
in short discovered luminescent crustaceans in by coles waters. serious research of by kal only began in the seventeenth century before that legends travelled around europe that siberia was home to people with the heads of dogs the first expedition destroyed all those myths. habited by. peoples. populated with. white fish and a breed of seal with a photographic memory. it swims close to the shore examines the area and if it's familiar. but if. changed even a little. getting close to the seal. or
6:32 am
a serious threat. feels natural habitat is water. constantly. for the young. one hundred thirty kilos and grow to one and a half metres in length but on the whole. they like peace and calm. away from their natural habitat. the silence of the siberian local shamans. and the spirit of by karl itself they pray for health. and good weather.
6:33 am
one of the oldest of the world's faiths fervently observed by. shamans are able to fall into a deep trance which they believe lets them see into the future solomon realized his calling in a dream but didn't believe it at first. that . health was poor. in the end i was completely. told me. my brother you have to go through. after that.

6:39 am
a region of high seismic activity with earthquakes a common occurrence for five years the scientists research has provided exact forecasts of earthquakes around baikal. in two thousand and eight. separate from a powerful earthquake it was just as strong is the one that destroyed the fukushima nuclear power station in japan which was washed away by a huge wave. fortunately here the earthquake couldn't produce such a tsunami because they used too small. and in two thousand and eight days before the earthquake we registered some fundamental changes in the election magnetic field while money touring. that we had never observed before any other case the. only scientific achievements the neutrino detector has been dropped to
6:40 am
a depth of one kilometer into the lake. thanks to the pure clear water of by karl the device is able to detect many mysteries not just on the water but also out in space discoveries of this kind are impossible and salty ocean water. detector is designed to help us explore the history of your universe. find out how we begin. what is happening to it now you know what will happen to it we believe you can the future. is only possible if you watch the streams of unique particles cold neutrinos. provide us with the information of what was there when the universe began.

6:46 am
deepest parts. and yet it has never changed. a land of science discoveries and a unique nature seemingly frozen in time but by kill the press and live side by side with the spirits of the past just like the lake itself locals preserve their own mysteries and traditions. your. local folklore legends and rituals with great respect. convinced they are absolutely necessary here these rights hold the date back many more years than many of the scientific research projects oh yeah oh yeah a warrior learned.
6:47 am
by college stands for six hundred thirty kilometers covering an area the size of some countries like belgium the netherlands. everybody finds a place in the vast area of by co christians buddhists shamans and old believers of the russian orthodox church they've lived here for more than three hundred years they cross themselves with two fingers and reject modern orthodoxy. their faith and rituals have remained untouched throughout all the centuries their villages have their own unique design each house is painted in rich some a color as old believe as clothing has always been famous for its brightness and neatness as well as embroidered hats i'm sorry phones yes we are going to see if a girl wears why green bends it means she's a bride from a well off family and her father has prepared everything for her to be beautiful at the wedding. he louie. louie you. lloyd.

6:51 am
changed. developing changing. very important. rich with a constantly circulating from the bottom up that keeps itself clean water can safely be drunk straight from. here. this unique nature it was fear has when you emotional states. by
6:52 am
cal through its beauty individuality and energy can reconcile science with man's belief in supernatural powers. scientists might look for answers to any question but it doesn't mean that everything will be explained one day. that's a completely different approach towards goals of science differ from those of folklore . you can't escape these legends like the fisherman who carry out their rituals every time before they leave. god that needs to be placated you should treat him to a little wine or even if you feel like it drink some yourself. oh there's one. where i've never seen anything like this
6:53 am
before. so many in just one that. are just about fifty or sixty you can tell by the way. local fisherman a firmly convinced the bike will give a good catch when people treated with respect. only the oldest but it's also the deepest lake in the world with a depth of one thousand six hundred forty two meters. somewhere on the lake bed the treasures of the russian empire. one legend has it that in the times of the civil war in russia at the beginning of the twentieth century the ship carrying the gold reserves of the russian empire sank somewhere in this area.
6:54 am
no one has found these treasures yet but still being made to this day. cutting edge technology is used and various maps are examined everything possible is being done to find the sunken gold but no one has been lucky so far by cal continues to play hide and seek with. a popular one we have decided to have a go at it and during that one submersion we had about twelve accidents that we had never had before at first the weather was fine and the forecast was good but once we had reached the spot the weather changed and then it turned out that we had somehow lost the directions we had specially rented out once we had reached the bottom. and to top it off when we were rising from the bottom of the motor boat that was to pick us up vessel. and i was damaged more so i understood then that up above we were on the right track to find him as god but my call was resolved to
6:55 am
keep it that you're with. us if he isn't too eager to leave but his wife and two young daughters are waiting for him at home so many things are still to be done and so much about by cal still needs to be unraveled. because of people warned me that once i came to lake baikal my life would change completely i would fall in love with it and would long to come back sure. i never thought that this place would really affect me so deeply thought of the heriot i spent here has been one of the most interesting and dynamic stages of my life conceiving the fire and i will certainly look for an opportunity to return to like like how to feel as though.
6:56 am
