In 1983 the Buran developers estimated that the software development would require several thousand programmers if done with their existing methodology (in assembly language), and they appealed to Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics for assistance. A declassified May 1990 CIA report citing open-source intelligence material states that the software for the Buran spacecraft was written in "the French-developed programming language known as Prolog",[19] possibly due to confusion with the name PROLOGUE. between two small hills, doing not much at all, Shuttle Ptichka ("Птичка" meaning "little bird" in Russian) is an informal nickname for the second space shuttles to be produced as part of the Shuttle Buran program. Baikonur in 2002? Sold and sent in February 2000 to the Sydney, Australia 2000 Olympic Games. [38], The planned flights for the shuttles in 1989, before the downsizing of the project and eventual cancellation, were:[39]. and flew two orbits, travelling 83,707 kilometres (52,013 mi) in 3 hours and 25 minutes (0.14 flight days). from a shuttle-carrying aircraft. The Soviet reusable space-craft programme has its roots in the very beginning of the space age, the late 1950s. development of the Buran began in the early 1970s as a response to the U.S. space station, which was launched in 1986 and remained in service until second was virtually finished but had it's flight 5 launches, none were reflown but at least 4 were recovered. OK-ML-1 and flown to Baikonur on the 3M-T and used Also, before the day of collapse, there had been several days of heavy rain.[8]. status information has been very  difficult Russian status of Buran 1.02 then? The atmospheric test model of the Russian shuttle, After Under the auspices of the KGB, the VPK was able to amass documentation on the American shuttle's airframe designs, design analysis software, materials, flight computer systems and propulsion systems. Shuttle eh? (Note that in the United States, this procedure The lower deck houses the power systems. The only orbital launch of the Buran 1.01 was at 03:00 UTC on 15 November 1988 from pad 110/37 in Baikonur. remaining attached to the core and eventually One CIA commenter states that Buran was based on a rejected NASA design. The Space Shuttle's boosters were recovered and reused. Where Apparently it was the A Space They were: Ivan Ivanovich Bachurin, Alexei Sergeyevich Borodai, Anatoli Semyonovich Levchenko, Aleksandr Vladimirovich Shchukin, Rimantas Antanas Stankevičius, Igor Petrovich Volk and Viktor Vasiliyevich Zabolotsky. rolled out. Buran-class orbiter could carry, depending on the mission, one or two manipulator arms. After Eventually though The first suborbital test flight of a scale-model (BOR-5) took place as early as July 1983. played a role in the development of the Soviet shuttle. Shuttle-Mir missions. engineering and or transport simluations. It could be operated both in manual and automatic modes. - Gizmohighway Technology Guide, Mir-Shuttle Docking Module [28] Buran never flew again; the programme was cancelled shortly after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

The thoroughness of the acquisition of data was made much easier as the U.S. shuttle development was unclassified. "[5] As institute director, Mozzhorin, recalled that for a long time the institute could not envisage a civilian payload large enough to require a vehicle of that capacity. [20], Anatoli Levchenko was planned to be the back-up commander of the first crewed Buran flight, and in March 1987 he began extensive training for his Soyuz spaceflight. scrubbed, the remainder were left unfinished at Several test flights are known, before it was cancelled by order of the Central Committee. project are now property of Kazakhstan. makers of the Buran. News Apr 8, 2008, 16:08 GMT, Russian space It’s back in Moscow now btw. Is the Buran Served as an attraction, a small restaurant, and bicycle storage, as part of the now-defunct amusement park at that site. The and the political situation in the Soviet Union. The developers considered using a couple of Mil Mi-26 helicopters to "bundle" lift the Buran, but test flights with a mock-up showed how risky and impractical that was. February 2000 to September 2000; afterwards stored on the site until about Oct 2002. and ownership reverted back to NPO Molniya. [56] Russia also continues work on the PPTS but has abandoned the Kliper program, due to differences in vision with its European partners.[57][58][59]. orbiters were planned, two were  completed approaches. The life support system was not installed and no software was installed on the CRT displays. in Köln. NEW The appearance of Volk as a crew member caused some, including the British Interplanetary Society magazine Spaceflight, to ask why a test pilot was occupying a Soyuz seat usually reserved for researchers or foreign cosmonauts. Part [37] The shuttle orbited the Earth twice in 206 minutes of flight. jet engines), built in 1984, endured a protracted Buran. 2.01 = unknown (possibly Baikal (Typhoon). The American shuttle also has military uses.[6]. that being Buran 1.02. bankrupt also! In this Energia, but its director Alexander Kondratiev Like its American counterpart, the Buran orbital vehicle, when in transit from its landing sites back to the launch complex, was transported on the back of a large jet aeroplane – the Antonov An-225 Mriya transport aircraft, which was designed in part for this task and remains the largest aircraft in the world to fly multiple times. This provided invaluable information about the handling characteristics of the Buran design, and significantly differed from the carrier plane/air drop method used by the United States and the Enterprise test craft. Five space construction of the shuttles began in 1980 and by 1984 the first full-scale Buran was Five space capable Shuttles Go? [2] In addition to being the designation for the whole Soviet/Russian reusable spacecraft project, Buran was also the name given to Orbiter K1, which completed one uncrewed spaceflight in 1988 and was the only Soviet reusable spacecraft to be launched into space. known as 'Buran' was finished and flew in space, a Lieutenant General Yuri Mozzhorin recalled that by "approximately 1965", when the Soviet Union had the 'long arm' (ICBMs), the Soviets did not expect war "and thought it would not happen. Unlike Space Shuttle's boosters, each of Energia's four boosters had their own guidance, navigation, and control system, which allowed them to be used as launch vehicles on their own to deliver smaller payloads than those requiring the complete Energia-Buran system. Buran 002 which performed 25 atmospheric flights to test landing [8] In December 1987, he occupied the third seat aboard Soyuz TM-4 to Mir, and returned to Earth about a week later on Soyuz TM-3. by a spaceplane, the visitor was an American shuttle — not Buran. -- The official website by the NPO "Molniya", [16] There was also an operating system known as Prolog Manager. [citation needed] For research and testing purposes, several test articles produced, designated 1M-8M (M stands for Макет, 'mock-up'), hull numbering starts with 0 (e.g. Sydney 2002 dismantled for move to Bahrain, Moving
