Russian explorer Alexander Kunas walked about 25 kilometers through the desert to reach the Soviet Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan several months ago.(Soviet Hangar Found in the Kazakh desert)
The remnants of Russia’s most expensive space project are abandoned in a hangar, hidden from the sight of the curious on the vast steppes of Kazakhstan, in the Baikonur cosmodrome.(Soviet Hangar Found in the Kazakh desert)
When the program was abandoned by a Russian State with liquidity problems in 1993, there were five models at various stages of construction. The original Buran and Little Bird held together until a storm destroyed the first ship thirteen years ago.
The hangar is located a few kilometers from Gagarin’s launch pad (where cosmonaut Yuri Gagrin became the first person to fly into space in 1961).And next to the shuttle hangar, there is another abandoned building that houses the test model of the Energy-M space rocket. “
