Only in Russia – people going hunting and found a big rocket lying in the bush

People went hunting and found a missile “We heard a loud noise last night when we arrived, but didn’t pay much attention. Today we went back to the forest and this is what we found lying here, just a couple of meters from the road you see it’s our car right there”

Here’s the video to watch:

And by the way you’d better never do it – rocket fuel is a very toxic thing.

  1. There is a logo “RKC Progress” on the rocket, they build the Soyuz rockets.
    It looks like a second stage of a Soyuz-2, the engines are too small for a first stage.
    Accoring to wikipedia, last launches of this rocket were on November 7th and 16th, classified as “success”, which makes sense somehow. But a second stage is supposed to burn in the atmosphere, isn’t it? Or to return to earth in a controlled manner. Unless it’s some failed test launch.

  2. This is in fact not the 2nd stage of a Soyuz-2 but one of the four side boosters of the first stage of a Soyuz FG launch vehicle. Second stages never fall back intact, they burn up in the atmosphere. The first stage boosters fall back and just crash on the ground. Like thi sone.
