Some say the Buran might have been able to recover the Mir Shace Station piece by piece. The Buran was not a Soviet shuttle, though it was frequently referred to as such. It was never on display in Gorky Park, contrary to a widesprea rumor. On November 15, 1988, It completed its first and only flight.
