North Korea: Pyongyang Science & Technology Center

The newly opened (January 2016) lavishly futuristic Science and Technology center is the pride and joy of Koreans and Kim Jong Un. The building is in a form of an atom to celebrate the country’s splitting the atom in a nuclear test. What’s more – the center of building is an exact replica of a missile that took the first North Korean state line into orbit. The missile is visible from every possible part of the building. Various floors are dedicated to various sciences like physics, engineering, biology and hundreds of Koreans are busy studying at computer stations connected to the Intranet (not internet). Everything screams “future” and 21st century” here. There is even a 5D movie theater where the seat move with the movie action and water gets splashed on you when dinosaurs devour each other.
