Competition definitely drives us, I don't find it too hard to imagine we'd be on Mars by now if the Russians hadn't given up.

On a positive note with the Chinese becoming a serious contender, it could drive things forward again in a whole new way :)

Ive seen the Buran shuttle twice....once at the paris airshow, and once at the moscow airshow. I also managed to photograph some half scale shuttles as well as some interesting russian space agency aircraft in flight. I was sent to moscow as a photographer for an aviation publication. I remember being introduced to some interesting people whilst there....they were spies. Back then, the food was bad too. yes our trip had it all!
