The giant periscope.
Adding yet another feather to the industrial accomplishments of Coimbatore, a local firm has built one of the longest periscopes in the world, a 10-metre long instrument for viewing objects inside the Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) being developed at the atomic research station at Kalpakkam.
