“An explosion more than a hundred years ago was as powerful as 20 million tons of TNT . Wow, was too powerful . There hadn’t been an atomic bomb back then, so how could there have been such a powerful explosion? ” Gu Nianzhi astonished .
“Tens of millions of trees within more than 2,000 square kilometers were burned and charred . The way they fell was very strange . They all pointed to a center, just like the crop circles of later generations . ”
When seeing that Gu Nianzhi was surprised, “Haven’t the crop circles been proved to be man-made, not a natural phenomenon? ”
The ancestors of counterfeiting in the modern sense were actually the people of Great Britain . because they had been faking it for a long time since they were the first countries to industrialize . With the advent of industrialization, counterfeiting also appeared on a large scale . For example, the crop circle, which is closely related to the first industrial revolution, first appeared at that time .
But unfortunately, under the malicious propaganda of the West countries, the Chinese Empire, which had fallen from its peak and risen again, became the birthplace of counterfeiting .
Huo Shaoheng put all his clothes back into the box and locked it as he said, “What would the situation have been if the Tunguska explosion was man-made . ”
“That… was improssible, right? ” Gu Nianzhi continued to read, she said in surprise, “I can’t believe that the whole of Europe, and even parts of Asia, were feeling the explosion at the time . Thankfully, it was in the uninhabited Tunguska region of Siberia . If it had been in a place with more people, it would have been much worse . ”
“There are so many hypothesises about the exact cause? ” Gu Nianzhi read the information she was seeing to Huo Shaoheng, “Some people think it was a comet impact . Well, that’s the prevailing view in the academic world now . Some people still think it was an alien spaceship impact, and some hold the view that it was a small black hole that was passing through the Blue Planet at that time… Tsk, such imagination . Are they really scientists? Not science fiction writers? ”
Huo Shaoheng smiled and turned around, “You can discuss the topic with Ms . Song . ”
“Ms . Song is so professional . I’m only qualified to read popular science books . ” Gu Nianzhi laughed, “Well, there’s even a fanciful explanation here . It says it’s antimatter . With the collisions of protons and antiprotons, Bang! Everything melted into air . It’s just like the words in the Bible, ‘Dust to dusts, dirt to dirts, ash to ashes’ ! ”
Huo Shaoheng stood up and turned around . “See, that’s related to high-energy physics . ”
” … Do you mean antimatter? ” Gu Nianzhi frowned . “If it really was because of antimatter, then it’s really possible to cause this much damage . ”
It was said that when half a gram of iron and half a gram of “anti-iron” collided, the power of the explosion was equivalent to the power of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima .
“Yes, if that’s the case, then the power of the Tunguska explosion is equivalent to 1,000 atomic bombs, which is the power of 500 grams of “anti-iron” collision . ”
Gu Nianzhi frowned again . “But, antimatter can not exist in nature at all . ”
“Yes, antimatter can’t exist in nature, unless it’s in a specific laboratory environment, or there’s radioactive decay during nuclear research, or there’s an faint, fleeting antimatter detected in cosmic rays . ”
Huo Shaoheng seemed to be familiar with this point . He said, “Even if antimatter is produced in the laboratory, it can only appear in a very short period of time because it will inevitably collide with the laboratory utensils and be annihilated . ”
“When antimatter collides, the energy it will release is beyond your imagination . ”
“In front of it, even a nuclear weapon is just a piece of cake . ”
Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng suspiciously . “Why do you seem to know a lot about the sort of things? Don’t tell me they were the bedtime stories that Mrs . Song told you to coax you to sleep when you were young . ”
“Of course not . Mrs . Song’s son is called ‘scientific research’ , and I was just a gift from her to pay for her phone bill . ” Huo Shaoheng was rarely humorous .
Gu Nianzhi’s heart ached when she heard this .
She put down her phone and walked over to hug huo Shaoheng’s waist . She leaned her head against his chest and said, “I’ll tell you bedtime stories from now on . ”
Huo Shaoheng was speechless .
He lowered his head and kissed her on the lips . He said hoarsely, “Are you innocent? If you sleep with me, will I give you time to tell stories? ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
He had completely destroyed all the heartache and tenderness in her heart .
Gu Nianzhi pushed him away expressionlessly and tried to hold back the topic . ” … Are you so concerned about antimatter research because it’s related to weapons research in the military department? ”
Huo Shaoheng smiled but didn’t say anything . He picked up their luggage and said, “I need to buy you some overcoats against the cold before we go to Siberia . ”
Siberia was a vast area of northwest Russia . It spanned more than 10 million square kilometers, from the Ural Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, from the Arctic Ocean to Huck, and even part of the border with China .
Siberia had a Subfrigid coniferous climate . It was very cold, and there were at least seven months below freezing every year .
It was early May now, and it was slightly warmer . However, for Gu Nianzhi, who had grown up in C city in the south, it was still a very cold .
The only kind of clothing she had brought with her was just windbreaker, which was not enough to resist the cold winds of Siberia .
Gu Nianzhi followed Huo Shaoheng out of the hotel and saw the familiar jeep parked ostentatiously at the entrance of the hotel .
Vladimir, the furry second-in-command of the KGB, leaned against the car door .
The driver poked his head out of the car window and greeted them with a smile . “Cereus, where are you going? Vladimir and I will be your drivers and tour guides for free . We’ll send you anywhere you want to go! ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
Huo Shaoheng wasn’t surprised at all .
That was why he didn’t even call for a car . He was just waiting for the two of them to come to him .
In Russia, with the KGB’s escort, he didn’t have to worry about security .
It was so lucky to be hosted by KGB and President .
Huo Shaoheng unceremoniously opened the back door and said, “Sorry for disturbing you . Thank you for your hospitality . ”
“You’re welcome . Cereus and I are friends! ” The driver made a face at Gu Nianzhi . “Come, get in the car . ”
Gu Nianzhi smiled and followed Huo Shaoheng into the car .
Vladimir’s face darkened .
Why did he feel like he was being used by Huo Shaoheng? !
After getting into the car, Vladimir’s face remained sullen and he did not say a word .
The chauffeur did not notice anything and happily chatted with Gu Nianzhi .
“Cereus, where are you going? ”
“I’m going to buy some overcoats to keep warm before going on a trip to Siberia . Is that right, Huo Shao? ” Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng replied with an “mm” and his expression was very calm and natural .
“To buy overcoats, ” Vladimir said sarcastically . “Then go to Gu Mu . ”
“Are you serious? ! ” The driver’s eyes widened . “It’s the most luxurious place in Russia! ”
“Gu Mu? ” Gu Nianzhi looked down at her phone and checked . “Its full name is Gu Mu National department store . Tsk, that’s actually a terrible name . ”
Although the name was tacky and terrible, it was the most luxurious shopping mall in Moscow, and even in the whole of Russia . There was a need for security checks before entering .
All the luxury brands of all blue star had flagship stores here, which truely reflected its grand scale .
When Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng got off the car, seeing the security check at the entrance,they were still struck by the surroundings .
Vladimir laughed strangely as he watched Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi walk into goom . “Hmph, let Major General Huo pay the bill, he deserves it . How dare he takes advantage of me . ”
“Does he? Aren’t we watching them?” The driver was puzzled .
Vladimir felt depressedin his heart .
How did he have such thoughtless subordinates? !
