Lawntonlookirs - 2/2/2008 4:17 PM It seems that the Russian Soyuz is very quickly assembled and reliable. Interesting pictures, and I am sure we will see some of the launch.
While I agree with you in the "quickly-assembled and reliable" part, this vehicule is a Progress, as you certainly will have read in the thread's title. Of course, it's based in Soyuz design and shares a big commonality, but it's nevertheless a simpler version. Undoubtedly, the Soyuz capsule must be far more difficult to build and assemble, given its human-rated nature.
