Spacecraft History and Specification

In 1974, after failure of the N-1 Lunar rocket, the Soviet military preferred a new family of modular following the loss of space race to America. In 1976, the Ministers of the USSR launched the program of the reusable spacecraft system. The former OKB-1 bureau was restructured to NPO Energia enterprise that in charge of the program development. The U.S. shuttle design was studied by Russian rocket scientists but they had no experience in production of large solid rocket motors. The final configuration was resulted in four liquid propellant boosters surrounding the core stage. The launch booster rocket layout was approved by military and was designated 11K25. The first flight schedule was planned in 1983 but development problems led to serious delay. In 1986, with the first launch schedule was confirmed, the 11K25 launch booster was named Engeria. In 1987, The Energia first launched from site-250 carrying a Polyus military payload. The rocket performed flawlessly. In 1988, the Energia carried Buran orbiter and completed first and only flight of the Energia-Buran program. The Engeria production was ended with the fall of Soviet Union and Buran cancellation.
