The Tyan-Shan Highland Research Station in Kazakhstan belonging to the P.N. Lebedev Institute of Physics was started in the 1958, when countries fought for priority in the space and research. Being first in the cosmic race was very important.
The purpose of the station is to investigate cosmic rays and their wide range of energies both astrophysical and nuclear- their physical aspects, their interactions and accompanying phenomena. Most scientists named this place Space Station.
In 1990’s most of the scientists who were working on the project were sent on leave without pay (due to the economic shortages of the period).
In 2011 was launched a unique installation named Horisont. The device is more powerful then the Large Hadron Collider. This device has made a contribution to the world of science and allowed to approach to the research of the highest-energy particles at a new level.
