Did The Russians Build A Better Space Shuttle?
Advertisement
On November 15, 1988, the world learned that the Soviet Union also had their own space shuttle. It had been secretly under development for well over a decade and it had cost the Soviets billions to build it. Several of the spacecraft were in various stages of construction. But the Soviet shuttle, named the Buran, would only ever launch once. Its development had largely been driven by the need to respond to the perceived military potential of the NASA Space Shuttle.

There's the basic synopsis. It goes into more detail too, with some links to further information. The Buran has been photographed over the years but until today, I didn't know what it's name was and that it was indeed a very different beast to the American version.

Watched this over some chicken wings and coleslaw. Thought to give it a share. Good length for a food break coming in at a brief 10:29 runtime.

Remember all space shuttles were unmanned, as is the ISS.

As I remember it was slightly worse but much the same.
Their rockets were better...

I think storing it in a building that the snow might collapse is inept...

Then Russians travel in space vehicles all over this solar system. Since before 1950 anyway

Nature is returning to equilibrium, the only thing being destroyed was never real to begin with - an artifice that has inevitably lost its hold on the hearts and minds of men. Some wait for the end, others give birth to the new.

No. They can fill it with high tech light weight things from today. Rip the asbestos off the walls etc. The astronauts could have it very nice.

Just looking at that picture, it appears to me that they pretty much just copied what the Americans dead including the launch system.

I thought the whole US is better than Russia is better than US crap stopped when the wall came down in East Berlin.
