The space shuttle Buran was the response of Soviet Russia to the U.S. space program.
She made only one flight, uninhabited, in 1988 and although it was a success the program was discontinued in 1993 after the breakup of the USSR.
In 2002 the collapse of the roof of the hangar where it was stored in Kazakhstan  completely destroyed it.

    It’s always sad to see something with such a great potential be destroyed in the blink of an eye.
