BURAN – The Russian Space Shuttle

The Buran spacecraft (meaning  Snowstorm or Blizzard), a Russian version of the space shuttle completed only one mission. This was an unmanned flight in 1988 completely remotely controlled (an achievement in its own right).

The Buran program was cancelled in 1993. The flown Buran was destroyed in 2002 when the hangar that housed it collapsed.
