# spp135 Molniya space corporation

Rare patch depicting official logo-emblem of NPO Molniya-Research and Industrial corporation founded in 1976 to create the First Russian manned reusable spaceship. Logo of Molniya corporation depicts graphic picture of Buran shuttle orbiter. Buran tested by cosmonauts in atmospheric test flights between 1985-1988 and flown on orbit controlled by computers in november, 1988. The development of reusable systems to put into an orbit was a logical step of technical engineering progress and in 70-s the USA and the USSR got down to development of the Space Shuttle systems. This patch is certainly an interesting piece for collectors of `shuttle` memorabilia
