Some interesting photos from Star City.
Mitch Karunaratne took the snaps of the highly secret Star City complex - known in Russian as Zvezdniy Gorodok - inside forests around 30 miles (48 kilometres) from Moscow.

The centre, run by the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), is in a closed town where the legendary cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin trained.

Star City is always an interesting place to photograph, caught in a time warp, but slowly modernizing. The article photos are great but the map showing Star City being north of Bryansk would have done the secretive Soviet era proud! It is just northeast of Moscow.
