THE ANSWER TO YESTERDAY'S MIDWEEK MYSTERY QUESTION

Too easy – you guessed it!

It’s a Irtysh decompression chamber or in other words a hyperbaric oxygenation chamber,

Its main use was to rescue pilots or trainee cosmonauts suffering from the bends.

It also alleviates excessive bleeding, helping the body restrict the loss of blood.

The Soviets, who put the first satellite, dog, woman, and man in space used it.

It’s been on display in London’s Science Museum on occasions.

Have a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
