MAI museum

During my recent trip in Moscow I had the occasion to visit the MAI museum, here are the pictures I took.

The space shuttle project Kliper

Kliper MAKS 2005

I created a new part on the website that I nammed « Others« , this area will group differents chapters about Soviet spacecrafts, more or less linked to the Buran-Energia program. Indeed, even if the projects seems differents numerous elements and technics are reused which gave some continuity in the timeline.

I added today a chapter on the Kliper shuttle, which is the evolution between Buran space shuttle and BOR models. This shuttle should have been the replacement for the Soyuz spacecraft but unfortunatly the project is stopped.
