Re: Russians to invest $50 billion on new space program

Up until this announcement, Russian rocket enginners were being punished and talked town to, after the whole PHOBOS/GRUNT fiasco. The Proton Briz upper stage seems to be a real problem for them.

They are the oldest of the space powers, and that means old age has beset them the hardest, with all the Chief Designers dead.
