    Protno and Soyuz are in trouble. The old soviet era folks are quitnig/dieing – adn in true Soviet era ways – they documented nothing so no noe could fire and replace them. So quality adn funtionality are droping.

    Both coldwar era space racers are losing their ability to even get folks into space. Like a race between a couple infirm geriactrics, living off the glory of their highschool rivalries – but hardly able to move.
