I returned to explore the abandoned Soviet-era Buran space shuttles in the middle of the Kazakhstan desert. The adventure of a lifetime – a second time. It's an 80km (50 mile) hike across unforgiving terrain, mostly undercover of the night. The adventure requires crossing into Russian territory and evading armed Russian military patrols. And, this time, we were exposed to sub-zero temperatures. This video includes the first-ever 4K complete tour around the space shuttles. See the Ptichka orbiter – 95% complete for space flight – up close like never before. It's an incredible work of engineering to behold.

It had been secretly under development for well over a decade and it had cost the Soviets billions to build it. Several of the spacecraft were in various stages of construction. But the Soviet shuttle, named the Buran, would only ever launch once. Its development had largely been driven by the need to respond to the perceived military potential of the NASA Space Shuttle. When the Buran was first launched, the world speculated that it would be used to build Soviet space stations or even assemble spacecraft for a manned mars mission. But as the Soviet Union began to collapse, funding for the Buran program was limited and eventually eliminated. There’s no denying that the Buran looks very similar to the Space Shuttle. But in many ways, the Buran was quite different from the NASA Space Shuttle. The Buran orbiter didn’t have integrated main engines. Almost all of its lifting power was provided by a separate super-heavy rocket called Energia, which consisted of a core stage and 4 liquid-fueled boosters. Unlike the Space shuttle, which was a single system, the Buran orbiter, and its lifting rockets were actually two separate systems. While the Shuttle, with its integrated engines, was more reusable, in practice, it required intensive maintenance between launches, which offset a lot of this advantage. But once in space, the Space Shuttle’s integrated engines no longer served a purpose. So, for most of the Shuttle’s mission, it was forced to haul around thousands of pounds of dead weight. Without integrated engines, the Buran could carry slightly more payload than the American Space Shuttle. But the Energia rocket could launch by itself, without the Buran attached. That meant it could carry external payloads into space, and could launch an astounding 100 tons. From the outset, the Buran was also capable of fully automated flight, meaning it could be launched, put into orbit and returned back to earth without any crew on board. In the final days of the Soviet Union, when it was clear that the American shuttle had no meaningful military potential, the Soviet military no longer wanted anything to do with the Buran. The Soviet space community was left with a spacecraft that was expensive, complex, and largely without a real purpose. #Buran #SpaceRace #Spaceships #SovietSpaceProgram Further Research: We highly recommend the book ‘Energiya-Buran: The Soviet Space Shuttle’ by Bart Hendrickx and Bert Vis.

Music: Звездный Пегас - Сквозь звезды Buran was the first spaceplane to be produced as part of the Soviet/Russian Buran programme. Besides describing the first operational Soviet/Russian shuttle orbiter, "Buran" was also the designation for the entire Soviet/Russian spaceplane project and its orbiters, which were known as "Buran-class orbiters". The only orbital launch of a Buran-class orbiter, 1K1 occurred at 03:00:02 UTC on 15 November 1988 from Baikonur Cosmodrome launch pad 110/37. Buran was lifted into space, on an uncrewed mission, by the specially designed Energia rocket. The automated launch sequence performed as specified, and the Energia rocket lifted the vehicle into a temporary orbit before the orbiter separated as programmed. After boosting itself to a higher orbit and completing two orbits around the Earth, the ODU engines fired automatically to begin the descent into the atmosphere, return to the launch site, and horizontal landing on a runway. After making an automated approach to Site 251, Buran touched down under its own control at 06:24:42 UTC and came to a stop at 06:25:24, 206 minutes after launch. Despite a lateral wind speed of 61.2 kilometres per hour (38.0 mph), Buran landed only 3 metres (9.8 ft) laterally and 10 metres (33 ft) longitudinally from the target mark. It was the first spaceplane to perform an uncrewed flight, including landing in fully automatic mode. It was later found that Buran had lost only eight of its 38,000 thermal tiles over the course of its flight.

Although the US and the Soviet Union had periods of healthy cooperation in the past, they also had a history of intense competition when it came to space. The Soviets held the record for launching the first satellite into orbit, but America managed to beat them to the Moon. This video looks at how the Soviets managed to get their hands on important Shuttle documents in order to create an even more advanced version of the Space Shuttle called the Buran.

LKS was a strange mini Soviet Space Shuttle concept, that was proposed as an alternative to the well known and loved Buran Space Shuttle. While Buran and it's Energia rocket are quite well known in the space community, LKS seems to have faded into relative obscurity and deserves a little spotlight. LKS had some curious aspects to it, and in hindsight might have been a better choice. What do you think about LKS? Special thanks go to "Lunar Orbit" Patreon supporters MrKumquat, Dashane Du Plessis.

"..The only orbital launch of Buran occurred on 15 November 1988 from Baikonur Cosmodrome Site 110/37. It was lifted into orbit unmanned by the specially designed Energia rocket, which to this day remains the heaviest rocket running on liquid fuel. Unlike the NASA Shuttle, which was propelled by a combination of solid boosters and the Shuttle's own liquid-fuel engines fueled from a large fuel tank, the Energia-Buran system used only thrust from the rocket's four RD-170 liquid oxygen/kerosene engines developed by Valentin Glushko and another four RD-0120 liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen engines. From the very beginning Buran was intended to be used in both fully automatic and manual mode..." "..The main differences between the space aeroplane Buran and Suttle-orbiter are follows: - the automatic landing of Buran from orbit onto airdrome; - the absence ot the main rocket engine on the orbital aeroplane. The main engine was placed onto a central block of a carrier-rocket ENERGIA which is able to launch into an orbit 120 tonns of payload against 30 tonns for Space Shuttle; - the hight lift-drag ratio of the space aeroplane Buran is 6.5 against 5.5 for Space Shuttle; - the space aeroplane Buran returned 20 tonns of payloads against 15 tonns for Space Shuttle orbiter from an orbit to an aerodrome; - the cutting lay-out pattern of thermoprotection tiles of Buran is optimal and longitudinal slits of tile belts are orthogonal to the flow line. Sharp angles of tiles are absent. The tile belts of the Buran fuselage and fin have an optimal position..."
2023 UPDATE – I returned to the shuttles! See the new 4K video here: 🤍 Instagram ⇢ 🤍 Reddit ⇢ 🤍 In November 1988, the Soviet Union launched the first and only orbital mission of their VKK Space Orbiter programme, commonly known as the Buran programme. The Buran programme was a direct Soviet response to a perceived military threat by the US space shuttle program. But despite visual similarities and the KGB's ability to acquire unclassified NASA documentation, there were key engineering improvements. The primary difference was that the Buran launched, performed two orbits, and landed autonomously. But with the collapse of the Soviet Union and subsequent funding issues, Russia officially cancelled the Buran programme in 1993. The Buran orbital shuttle, the 95% complete Ptichka shuttle, and a full-sized engineering mockup were stored in hangars at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. In 2002, a hangar collapse destroyed the Buran orbiter and tragically killed eight workers. The other shuttles remained in their nearby hangar, undisturbed. Although many people in the space community were aware of the location and fate of the unfinished orbiter and test shuttles, the story of one of humanity's greatest achievements faded into obscurity as the years passed. But that all changed in 2015. A Russian man succeeded in making the dangerous journey to the derelict hangar and revealed the current status of the shuttles to the world. Upon hearing his story and having wondered about the abandoned shuttles after the Buran collapse, I knew as a space enthusiast and explorer of abandoned places that I had to see them up close. This is the journey of a lifetime to explore the abandoned Soviet space shuttles. Let's go exploring past the present future.

The US Space Shuttle was an iconic spacecraft and a workhorse for the US space program, but did you know that the Soviet Union also built their own Space Shuttle type spacecraft known as the Buran. Russia and the Soviet Union planned an entire fleet of Buran class orbiters that would fly attached to their Energia rocket which was a powerful and versatile rocket. Many argue that the Buran was actually a huge upgrade to the US Space Shuttle program and was known as Shuttle 2.0.

In 1981, America made history when NASA launched its first Space Transportation system, carrying two astronauts into orbit. But unbeknownst to many, Russia was in the middle of building its own spacecraft with stolen parts and specifications acquired through espionage. As the most ambitious project in the history of the Soviet space conquest, over one million people from 1,286 companies and 86 ministries and departments participated directly in the project’s development. Then, on November 15, 1988, Soviet cameras recorded the Buran space shuttle successfully taking off into orbit. While Buran may have looked like any other Soviet vehicle from the Cold War, the now-forgotten space shuttle had one unique characteristic: it could fly itself. - Dark Footage showcases the most unbelievable photos and videos from history while telling the stories behind the camera.

Subscribe: 🤍 It was not really until the climax of the Space Race that the US gained the upper hand against the USSR in space exploration. When Neil Armstrong landed on the moon in 1969, America was finally regarded as the victor. Nonetheless, the USSR was ready to retaliate through the KGB and began a more unconventional campaign to make sure it wasn't going to be left behind. The Soviets enlisted hundreds of spies that successfully obtained both classified and public intelligence related to the American Space Program. Thanks to its clandestine efforts, the Soviet Union was able to steal the first US shuttle design during an operation that took place in the late '70s and early '80s. The Russians called their carbon-copy space shuttle the Buran or Blizzard. This is an intriguing tale of the competition between the Cold War's two great powers, filled with politics, paranoia, war, and what historians have called the first recorded case of online spying...
Rewind Wednesday. This episode: Buran - the 'one hit wonder' of the Soviets space program.
The Buran (Snowstorm or Blizzard in Russian) spacecraft made its only flight on the 15th of November, 1988. This flight was completely unmanned. The interesting footage of the orbiter's landing was taken to make this video clip. 15 November 1988 - I remember, I'm proud of it.
Buran or Buran-class Shuttles were spaceplanes designed made by the Soviet Union. Unlike the Space Shuttle, the orbiter and rocket were not considered part of the same spacecraft and had different names. The rocket was called Energia, and was capable of launching other payloads besides the Buran orbiter, like the Polyus weapons platform. Get the blueprint: 🤍
Energia II, named Uragan (Russian: Ураган, Hurricane), was a rocket design proposed to be fully reusable with the capability to land on a conventional airfield. Unlike the Energia-Buran, which was planned to be semi-reusable (like the U.S. Space Shuttle), the Uragan concept was to have allowed the complete recovery of all Buran/Energia elements, like the original, totally reusable Orbiter/Booster concept of the U.S. Shuttle. The Energia II core as proposed would be capable of re-entering and gliding to a landing.

This journey that started for me aged 17 in Anna’s Russian class has now come to an end. I have been officially banned from Russia for a period of three years. What great memories were created. From the villages of the Komi republic to the mountains of Dagestan, to the Siberian forests and Baikal, we have experienced so many adventures. I'll always remember the amazing Russian people I met with great fondness but it's time to to bring the curtain down. Glory to the USSR!
The Buran programme ("Blizzard") was a Soviet and later Russian reusable spacecraft project that began in 1974 at the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute and was formally suspended in 1993. 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 unmanned spaceflight in 1988 and was the only Soviet reusable spacecraft to be launched into space. The Buran-class space shuttle orbiters used the expendable Energia rocket as a launch vehicle. They are generally treated as a Soviet equivalent of the United States' Space Shuttle but in the Buran project, only the airplane-shaped orbiter itself was theoretically reusable, and while Orbiter K1 was recovered successfully after its first orbital flight in 1988, it was never reused.
