Russian/European Manned Spaceship Unveiled

Spaceship DesignThe first official image of a reusable Russian/European manned spacecraft has been released. It will replace Russia’s current Soyuz vehicle and will allow Europe to participate in crew transportation.

The ship will carry six crew into low-Earth orbit and four on missions to the Moon, which rivals the US Ares/Orion system. The new design includes thrusters which will let the craft make a soft landing when it returns to Earth.
