  • Russian photographer, Ralph Mirebs, traveled to Baikonur, Kazakhstan to document an abandoned hangar that resides in Kazakhstan. Inside the hangar, which has been inoperative for the last 20 years, remain two Soviet Space shuttle prototypes in decaying conditions. An aerial view of the abandoned hangar in Kazakhstan is pictured.
