Siberia Region

Bordered on the west by the Ural mountains and on the east by the Pacific Ocean, this region has long fascinated many people. It is not considered a political region but more of a geographic one and does not have its own governmental bodies. Harsh weather may be a part of the vast area but so are extraordinarily breathtaking landscapes. Lake Baikal is not only the world's deepest lake but also one of the most beautiful. Other places of interest in Siberia include the cities of Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Kemerovo, Barnaul, Tomsk and many others. Some of the resources listed here are also listed on our pages for the individual cities, towns, etc.

    Friends in Space



    We've been working with Jennifer Green since the earliest days of F&P and are big fans of the work she has done with F&P Space. She manages the Web site, an active pair of email listservers, and organizes an annual conference in Russia of space engineers, astronauts and cosmonauts. Jennifer's story of fostering cooperation and exchange is one of the best on F&P!
