    The Buran space shuttle displayed at the Baikonur Cosmodrome History Museum in Kazakhstan. This is the second 11F35 space ship of the first series originally scheduled for a space flight in 1992.

    The Baikonur Cosmodrome History Museum was established in 1968 on the territory of the world's first and largest operational space launch facility, which was first built by the Soviet Union in the 1950s.

    Since its opening, the museum's exposure has expanded significantly. Baikonur Cosmodrome History Museum provides in-depth insight into missile construction and the development of space technology. Visitors can find out how space was explored, see a stunning collection of equipment used by cosmonauts and even discover what kind of food they ate in orbit.
