Quite a find for this guy! http://www.boredpanda.com/abandoned-soviet-space-shuttle-program-buran-baikonur-cosmodrome-kazakhstan-ralph-mirebs/

Quoted from article:

Ralph Mirebs, an urban explorer and photographer in Russia, has revealed extraordinary photos of Soviet space shuttle prototypes gathering dust in an abandoned hangar in Kazakhstan.

The abandoned hangar is located at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, which is still in operation today (with the close of NASA’s shuttle program, Russian Soyuz shuttles are the only way for astronauts to reach the International Space Station). The Buran prototype shuttles found by Mirebs, however, are from an earlier era – they are the last remnants of a space program that began in 1974 and was finally shuttered in 1993. The only operational Buran shuttle, Orbiter 1K1, completed one unmanned orbital flight before it was grounded. Unfortunately, this shuttle was destroyed in a hangar collapse in 2002.
Hi everyone, first post here....very long time lurker!

Looks like this has had an update. I'm not a fan of urbex videos but this one is on a whole different level to most!


Cheers
Robbie

Sorry to be seriously late on this but I'm 90% sure it wasn't a permission visit. On red bull TV there is a whole URBEX series and one episode featured this
Just because it's on TV doesn't mean that they haven't fudged the truth, if anything it probably means they've fudged it more.

These are on an active base that sends everything up to the ISS as well as other satellites and stuff, anyone who says they have done it non-permission is likely talking out of their backsides to make themselves sound cooler.

OK tbh that's fair enough I don't know 100% so it's only a guess

We did it without permission and we're far from the only ones, tonnes of Russians have been and a few europeans. We also got caught due to, believe it or not, another group of Russian explorers who had made the 2 day trek on the same day we did, so its probably quite a highly visited thing amongst the explorers in the post-soviet states. The base is about 100km square and is mostly desert so its possible (albeit a little intense) to move around it undetected at night.

Fair play - most of the early accounts I have read turned out to be permission/paid visits. Whichever way it's done it's still on my bucket list :cool:

Abit late to reply maybe haha, but not true about payed visits. I went last year illegally through the desert and spent 2 nights there before heading back. We had a Lithuanian guy with us that had visited the rocket launch legal. But when he asked to see the space shuttles they declined and told him that was not possible. It's a hard fucking trip and alot of planning and luck comes with it. We both had helicopters and military patrolling. Luckily for us the helicopter was just over our heads when we spent the night in the hangar. But on our way back we had a military Cade that followed parts of a rocket on the train rail. Main reason why I got bit by a fucking snake in the leg. But hey. Atleast adventure for life.
