A group of daredevils went to Kazakhstan to the ex-Soviet main cosmodrome Baikonur. They were crazy enough to park their car some way away from the place and then climb thru the fence and trespass inside, hiding from police and the guards. They managed to see giant Energia-M launching sites, abandoned Buran Soviet space shuttles and more.  They even could climb inside the Buran and saw the launch of the real Soyuz rocket up-close. Amazing story.

After they got inside the perimeter of the Baikonur cosmodrome they stayed to spend a night in an abandoned house.

Here is a photo in the morning after the night spent there.

Close to this there was a abandoned Sport and concert hall which belonged to Russian “Energia” science corporation.

Then after the night comes they run hiding to the dynamic tests building of Energia corp.

Went to the top of the building and hid there, as they suspected police was tracking them down.

Here is what they saw from the top of the building. A last “Energia-M” rocket.

Here is the rocket from the side floor.

Here is a blogger for a scale.

Then they went to the roof top and watched a launch of Soyuz rocket which was in 1.13pm.

Here is the launch made by bloggers unauthorized and trespassing, but what a view.

Rocket goes in to the skies.

If to look in other sides there are also launching platforms everywhere.

The building is 100 meter (or more) tall.

And that building ahead is “assembly and refueling station”. That hangar hosts the never-fly versions of Soviet Buran shuttles. And that’s where they were heading next.

This is a bottom of the Energia-M hangar.

And now the building with Buran shuttles.

It’s gigantic inside.

They climb the stores up and up.

Down there two Burans standing. One was called “Burya” and another one was “OK-MT”.

Went down, there is a blogger standing too.

Buran’s tail.

The Buran was open and they managed to climb inside.

Here is a cargo cabin of Buran. The “ball” in the end is the docking station.

Here is a docking station upclose.

From it you can climb on top to the cockpit.

Some things are missing but many still in place.

Pilot’s seat.

Then they left the place but a few moments later were caught by police. (You can see them sitting inside the police car). They managed to hide the memory card somewhere and even after have been searched police didn’t find the photos so they managed to publish them later for our viewing pleasure. Hope you liked those.

Their website is below.

    Great photos, great image quality.
    I wonder… what is the punishment for trespassing the Cosmodrome?!

  2. Imagine the money and work spent on Buran….ultimately all for nothing.

    The USA scrapped the Space Shuttle, reason:…..extremely dangerous.

  3. No human being has ever gone into space more than low earth orbit. Both the US and Russia discovered that outer space is a hostile environment that we know next to nothing about. Besides that, no human being has ever been to the moon. Most all ”space programs” are employment opportunities that spend tax dollars. Real space exploration will most likely involve anti-gravity devices.

  4. Talent and IOU’s are all it takes to revive Buran – no money needed.

    Since the international space station was largely made of components from various aerospace design bureaus involving the Russian Republics and the United States Aerospace Contractors, crews had to work in Russian and English.

    Yes, that’s right – the spoken languages on the international space station are Russian and English.

    There must be quite of few retired astronauts with qualifications in Russian and English just tinkering around restoring old cars. Pity, that is all they are doing with their talents – fixing old cars.

    What about restoring old Space Shuttles!

    They are all still relatively young men and women, too gifted to be restoring mere old cars ( I like classic cars all makes and models).

    Perhaps all these old thrill seekers should up their game and restore a shuttle or two? Maybe restore a Buran or two. Why not?

    But all it takes is money? Not so! No gold or silver not needed. Besides, Russians don’t need no stinking dollars. Only decadent Americans use dollars. All this project needs is, talented people and good credit.

    Its just like that salesman said on TV, the guy from the furniture store in San Diego CA.- Good credit? Bad Credit? Military ? No problem … You’re approved !!!

    Interst rates have never been lower.

    I hear there is a new President, some where, would would likely guarantee a loan for at least 6 years. Long enough to restore a shuttle or two until it can start to earn income on its own. What business? Recovering, repairing and launching satellites – that stuff is too expensive to burn up. And no one is doing this work right now.

    I suppose if astronauts and aerospace engineers are not fascinated at the possibilities they can always go back to fixing cars.

  5. Too dangerous to fly – my ass! Fix the heat tile problem. Don’t cut corners. Or remotely pilot the orbitor. Time for UAV to be applied for peaceful purposes. This could be a first and it would belong to who ever did it first. Bring back the SPACE RACE MR PUTIN!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Had it been in USA , it would have been preserved properly for visitors to see. But BURAN’s bad luck. They should Museum it for tourists.
