    Following their purchase of Sea Launch earlier in the year, S7 (one of the major Russian airlines) has annouced they're developing a reusable rocket because they believe expendable rockets are unsustainable. Who knew?

    There aren't really any good nuggets in the article, but its positive news all the same.
    S7 Space to modernize Sea Launch floating spaceport for reusable rocket

    Related only because it was another article at the bottom of that Tass website, I need to give a shout out to the high-tech form factor of Russian drones. :D

    Yes, that’s a shocker. ;)

    And here I thought the Russian plan was to use trampolines to recover their boosters...
