    Here's a little history of the results of some of Russia's recent space program reforms. This is by no means a representative sample.

    My bad.

    Novosibirsk is nowhere near the Vostochny Cosmodrome. As a matter of fact, even though it's in Siberia, it's closer to the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan than it is to the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

    How far is it from Vostochny?
    4315 clicks by road, or about 2700 miles.
    That's a 54 hour drive, according to Google Maps.

    Siberia is bigger than the US.

    Blow for new cosmodrome as officials say first manned launch is still a decade away

    Russian space officials say they remain on target for the first unmanned launch from Vostochny in December this year. But plans for manned launches to commence in 2018 have been shelved, which means Russia will depend on Baikonur in Kazakhstan for another ten years.

    Russia's New Rocket Won't Fit in Its New Cosmodrome

    Work at Russia's new $3 billion spaceport in the Far East has ground to a halt after a critical piece of infrastructure was discovered to have been built to the wrong dimensions, and would not fit the latest version of the country's Soyuz rocket, a news report said.

    The Vostochny Cosmodrome, under construction in the Amur region, north of China, is intended to become Russia's primary spaceport, replacing the Soviet-built Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

    The cutting-edge facility was meant be ready for launches of Soyuz-2 rockets in December, but an unidentified space agency official told the TASS news agency late Thursday that the rocket would not fit inside the assembly building where its parts are stacked and tested before launch.

    The building "has been designed for a different modification of the Soyuz rocket," the source said, according to news website Medusa, which picked up the story from TASS.

    Putin is too busy meddling in others affairs...

    To keep his own affairs in order.

    History teaches us some things about that kind of behavior:
    *Do NOT trust them...
    *Just give them enough rope and they will hang themselves...

    So how about lets elect a POTUS that will hand out rope...
