Russia still trying to get second Buran shuttle back. Tensions are continuing to escalate between a Kazakh businessman and Russian space officials over the fate of the second Buran-class orbiter, named Burya. The businessman, Dauren Musa, claims ownership of Burya. This was the second orbiter built as part of the Soviet Buran program, which aimed to produce a fleet of space shuttle-like vehicles four decades ago.

A shuttle for a skull ... At the time of the program's cancellation in 1993 due to a lack of funding, the Burya vehicle was deemed to be more than 95 percent completed for flight operations. Now Musa says that he would only return Burya to Russia in exchange for the skull of the last Kazakh Khan, a man named Kenesary Kasymov. Ars has a full report on the controversy.


Weird flex.

Indeed; straight into the sun so there is no pollution. Shatner, however, deserves to go to space and enjoy the ride. Good for him.

I wonder how many will read the headline and conclude  that Bruce Willis is going to space?

I can't decide if this is a sad or fitting way for Shatner to die.

I hope he makes.

If I had to guess, based upon his history and age, because it's his last chance to nail an Orion slave girl.
