I saw this a few months ago and I still like the design of the Buran. The American space shuttle to me is still the best rocket to me lol. I always wondered if the Buran would have been really good competitor to the Space Shuttle, that if the USSR didn't fall.

This has always been a really neat part of human spaceflight history. Personally, I consider Mr. Musky's rockets to be the best rockets nowadays, but the space shuttle will always hold a dear place in my heart as well. Saw many a launch in my early days growing up in Florida.

Sort of related: a shuttle launch from my backyard, circa 2009:
