This is one of the few pictures taken of the remains of the BURAN after it's hangar roof collapsed. You can make out all the tiles and the front windshield. An investigation in 2004 blamed Soviet era pre-fab construction and design for the collapse. Take a DEEP BREATH then click here: http://www.buran.ru/images/jpg/bbur90.jpg
