Amazing photos. Yeah the link I gave has plenty of information on the Buran shuttle.

It's good we were smart not to continue it - the idea of second launch is still not quite mature to my taste.

Eine kleinere Variante vom BURAN wäre vielleicht erfolgreicher gewesen. Vielleicht.

A smaller variation of the BURAN would have been maybe successful. Maybe.

You mean, Branson's Virgin Galactic shuttle, Roscosmos/Space Adventures "Soyuz" shuttle and others? BTW, it well may be a few of them are now developed by German-speaking nations.

I wonder what would happen first - Space tourist moving into small companies - or flying cars? ^_^

Uns wurde in Baikonur erzählt, daß damals eine kleinere Variante des BURAN (!) vielleicht erfolgreicher gewesen wäre. Vielleicht.

Aber jetzt gibt es eine neue Idee: Der Kliper.

To us was told in Baikonur that at that time a smaller variation of the BURAN (!) had been maybe successful. Maybe.

But now there is a new idea: The Kliper.
