Is this Energia Rocket and Space Corporation’s concept for the Euro-Russian Crew Space Transportation System vehicle? I was told by the two Energia employees on the company’s stand that they had been given it to display at the last minute. They knew very little but said they thought it was reusable and it could carry six people
