"In a fundamentally different way (the principle borrowed from Russian) in the new "postattack" concept of Americans provided by the division of transportation of people and materials.

"However, the pioneers began the Russian, who was whisked to the ISS tourist, Denis Tito in 2001," - concludes the publication.
