The proton rocket still has the coolest looking burn of any rocket.


lmao that shot of the cell phone some editor is really happy with himself


Not only has it taken 14 years for the NAUKS module to launch, also on the rocket is the European Robotic Arm which has taken 20 years to launch. The arm was planned to launch in 2001, but its planned modules have been cancelled, delayed, and pretty much everything else. It’s taken so long to get up there that the spare joint that was launched on a space shuttle has already been on the station for 11 years


Proton launches still gets me, they are something else.


Nauka=science. Love it. Proton is so good looking.
