"There is a unique museum located on the territory of the former Soviet Union, and to be more precise, in Ukraine. In the museum there are displayed many exhibits of Strategic Missile Forces. There is no other museum of such kind in the whole world; except one that is located in the USA, but tourists are not allowed there and all the guided tours are prohibited. On this photo you can see intercontinental ballistic missile CC-18 “Satan.”"

These are some great looking missiles. And it is nice to see a museum where one can touch everything, and few parts appear off limits. Certainly this is not as safe for the public, or for the exhibits, but comon who doesn't want to press the launch button or peek inside a bell nozzle?
I can't help fall victim to the simple charms of Russian rocketry. These rockets are robust, and often feature an open truss or blank interstage area. That is just a great thing to have in a rocket. So seldom does one see this in rockets anymore, and even in the hobby it is only found in a few Russian scale kits and the older American kits such as the Wacs and Aerobees.
