СССР-2061 - a retrofuturistic vision of Soviet Union on Mars

Project "СССР-2061" is a community of Russian artists and writers envisioning Soviet Union in 2061 in an alternate reality. In 2011 they held their 1st arts contest asking participants to envision Soviet Union on Mars 50 years into the future. Here are some of the artworks from the contest.

  1. The captions to some of these pictures cannot be copied and pasted into an online translator. I don't know how to enter Cyrillic text. Could someone please do a translation of the captions to English since it is the de facto international language.

    1. There are online image to text converters (as https://www.onlineocr.net ) after which you can do the translation.

  2. Would have taken an economic miracle for that to happen, not unlike US.
