the Head of the Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, was instructed to develop options for a manned winged space Shuttle, similar to the Soviet “Buran” to replace the “Soyuz MS”, RIA Novosti reported.
“Corporation “Energiya” and other teams will now be offering this kind of options of space technology”, — said Rogozin. He added that the creation of reusable spacecraft will take a long time.
Rogozin added that “Union MS” constantly modernizarea, but the endless upgrade “is detrimental to the development of space technology”.
