i didn't watch the vid, but i read about it before. it could fly and land unmanned.

SpaceX clearly has a better, more cost effective approach though.

Well it was the 1980's when they remote controlled their own shuttle. using 80's tech.

Security
The security was an important part of the process during the development of the two orbiters. The major parts of the avionics systems came from aviation (where it was well tested and approved), main circuits, tubes, wiring are doubled, tripled or even quadrupled (for the on-board computer), so that a hardware failure is practically impossible.

The main advantage of Buran over STS is that is was made from start to be fully automated. So the computer can take decision more quickly than the crew in case of emergency to save the crew and the payload, by reducing thrust or even eject the shuttle (500 scenaries are stored in the computer). If the shuttle is ejected it will return safely in automatic flight to the landing strip. Moreover, the engines of Energia LV use liquid propellant and can be shutdown if wanted.

The pilot and the co-pilot can also be saved by the automatic ejection of their seats during the ascent (from 50 m to 35 km).

I guess they were going to float that thing somewhere as part of an invasion-barge force. No deep sound required for that item.

It's even got Blaupunkt on the side there for water-skiing and what have you.

It even had a cabin eject system which the u.s shuttle did not.They also used liquid fueled rockets instead of solid fuel.This means they could abort mid launch ...
Theres a reason why we now use the ruskies for space flight...

All space shuttles were unmanned for safety, the russians did not need to build these propaganda vehicles to sell the serfs the idea of space piracy to fund NASA.

Just like you believe that there are humans on the ISS, chuckle
