A LETTER FROM DR. GUBERMAN

Some news of the existence of the legendary dr. Guberman recently caught our attention. Here is a picture of dr. Guberman by the Superdeep hole in Kola. He has just drilled the first hole of what was to become the deepest man-made hole in the world (12262 meters). Also included is a letter from the doctor with an original Superdeep stamp. As the research director of the Barents Institute, Urban Wråkberg notes: "dr. Guberman is for the underworld, what Juri Gagarin is for space".
