MOSCOW (AP) -- Helicopters zigzagged across Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula on Monday searching for signs of an inflatable space vehicle that could ferry people and cargo from orbit back to Earth, three days after it finished a test run.

Here is the rest of the story:

I wonder if it might've went to the same place(s) that all of that military hardware went when the Iron Curtain rusted away?


Considering that Russia never had anything like a space shuttle, how did they intend to make use of an inflatable re-entry vehicle?

Well Sarcasimo when MIR first went up it was a head of it's time even the Americans wanted something like it. Before the Iron Curtain went down the Russians built damn good things, now because of the cutbacks and lack in budgets the Russians can't build anything or upgrade what they already have.

MIR lasted way longer than it was planned to...that's why it fell apart. Also, the Russians DID have a Space Shuttle (it looked bery similar to ours, but appeared "fatter"), but I haven't heard much about how often they've used it.

Somehow though, the words "spacecraft" and "inflatable" should NEVER be in the same sentence, hehe....

was great russian technology. i belive if the west didn't push so hard on russia and the two actually cooperated and tried to get along like good little girls, we'd be a lot better off. damned people gettin all personal. if red russia and the US worked together as one, they would have been a great power. maybe forming a true world nation. i do belive that mir is space dust at the bottom of the ocean now. didn't they drop it?
