On this matter.... I talked to lecturer 2 years ago who had been to the major
aerospace university near Moscow. They have the NASA wind-tunnel models of the
shuttle there. They bought them off of NASA when NASA was finished with them.
The basic design of the Buran is similar to the STS because the Russians used
the data, and the models, NASA used. They let NASA do all of the basic 
research.
