Tien Shan High-Altitude Scientific Station is located at an altitude of 3340 m above sea level at a distance of 30 km from the city of Almaty. The station conducted a wide range of research projects. One of them is the “Hadron-55” complex with the help of which various effects and phenomena associated with the EAS passing through the Earth’s atmosphere are studied. The installation includes a network of neutron monitor, ionization calorimeters, a system of scintillation detectors. In addition, the station contains such complexes as ALMAREC, which studies radio signals from EAS and an acoustic recording system that allows recording possible acoustic effects when muons pass through the earth's crust. Scientific station "Space Station" is one of the best in the CIS.
