The Earth has the form of a sphere, which rotates around it`s axis. If to attach to this axis the giant cables which are in turn attached to the space-tug, than approaching the Earth deadly asteroid, the ship could take the Land to the side and thus save civilization. Isn`t it that minded F.M. Dostoevsky when said "the Beauty will save the World"?

The levers of the axis are two pipes of abandoned CHP in Russia and in England. One is located in the moscow region town of Dolgoprudny, on the Flower bypass, 3. The other is to the address: Bankside, London, and is part of the building of the gallery Tate Modern.

The first pipe of the whole project Sergey Katran solemnly launch in the days of the Moscow Biennale. The second part, most probably, will be put into operation already in October 2011, in conjunction with the London Frieze.
