An amazing new photo series shows rusting Soviet space shuttles in their abandoned hangars.
According to Mashable :
These relics from the Soviet Union’s Buran program were built in the 1980s as competitors to NASA’s space shuttles — reusable orbiters that could bring people to and from space on a regular basis until the program’s retirement in 2011.
These Russian shuttles never flew to space except forone test flight in 1988. The facility fell into disrepair when the Soviet Union collapsed and funding ceased.
What was once a grand superstructure built to house the new phase of space program is now a burial ground.
