This early prototype body is completely made of wood! Something we’ve never seen before – a space shuttle made out of wooden planks and plywood.

    Very interesting
    Must have been built as a mockup or something.

    Absolutely a mock up, but also very likely an aerodynamic mock-up. It looks like it has some very heavy rings built into it to suspend it.

    This layout size is 3 times smaller than the original. It made for aerodynamic testing.

    Quizas usado como prototipo para pruebas de aerodinamica, montaje en el propulsor Energia. Similar al estadounidense Pathfinder, tambien realizado en madera y con el mismo proposito. Aun asi es un gran hallazgo fotografico para los que seguimos interesados la carrera espacial. Gracias EnglishRussia!!!
