Seemingly abandoned spaceship on the streets of Moscow
A photo slideshow of the Soviet Space Shuttle Buran left lying abandoned in a Moscow junk yard. How very sad it is to see his once magnificent flying machine left to rot after all the effort that once went into getting her into space and back.
A Bing translation from the link page:
Seemingly abandoned spaceship on the streets of Moscow is something from fantasy. But alas, this is reality. Correspondent of "MK" discovered "Buran" orbital Soviet valâû?imsâ like garbage on the Metropolitan fringe. Abandoned before what once was a symbol of the cosmic power of our country.
