In the morning of 7. April 2005, I found myself at the outskirts of Moscow – together with aerospace veteran engineer Vladimir Fiselovich, who introduced me to one of the five ever built pieces of hardware of the Soviet Space shuttle programme. In fact, we were standing next to a real Buran Space vehicle. What an amazing moment! Later, this spaceship was sold to a museum, since the Buran programme has been discontinued by the Soviet authorities ten years earlier.
