Have you guys seen this site yet?<br /><br />Buran-Energia.com<br /><br />It's got a lot of details and a lot of pictures. It's like the Russian side of Buran.ru, but it's in English (albeit that it's a French site translated into English)<br /><br />Also, it has a lot of pictures of the Hangar 112 collapse that destroyed the Buran. Unlike most places that only show you a few pictures from the empty half of the hangar, this one actually shows the destroyed Energia/Bruan stack.<br /><br /><font color="yellow">*CAUTION*</font>This site also has a picture of one of the bodies of the workers that died in the roof collapse. Why? I don't know.<br /><br />Despite this, it's a very good site. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><em>So, again we are defeated.

I will definitely add that to my bookmarks for Russian spaceflight. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><font color="#666699"><em>"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly . . . timey wimey . . . stuff."</em>  -- The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

This is the rocket that could have got the Ruskies to Mars, they had clocked up record duration manned missions, and the red planet was next in their sights.<br /><br />It all ended with the fall of the USSR

Cool as they may have been I'm sure most of those in eastern Europe would say "fair trade" now that they're in the EU. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

Energiya had to compete with the massive Baikal-Amur Mainline and the completion of the full electrification of the Trans-Siberian railway--completed in 2002 after 74 years of work--thats what bankrupted them...<br /><br />--that and a costly war of occupation fighting a stupid war that got thousands of their soldiers killed for nothing.<br /><br /><br />Sounds familiar... <br />

It's a good site. Shame Buran only had one flight. Unmanned orbiters are interesting!
