Rusty Relics, Modern Ruins
- Raskat launch pad for Energiya rocket with Russian Buran space shuttle (area 110, Baikonur cosmodrome, 29 March 2006)
- UKSS universal complex launch pad (stand) for Energiya rocket (area 250, Baikonur cosmodrome, 29 March 2006)
The Energia rocket used same components as the Russian Buran space shuttle, just without the shuttle. It was launched only once - in 1987 for the Polyus space battle station. That failed. The Buran shuttle only flew once, in 1988, succesfully, without a crew and did an autonomous landing on a runway.
The big pipes are crew and personnel escape tubes, I think.
