I wish the photos had captions on them, but I guess nobody knows what to say about all that rusty stuff. From what I can figure out, it looks like it shows the big hanger building where the roof caved in back in 2002 killing 8 workers and destroying the only space flown (Buran) shuttle. Another photo shows the carrier that the entire shuttle, tank and boosters would ride out to the launch pad in the horizontal position then be tipped up vertically for launch. That little skinny dog, is that a cousin of Laika? Someone please toss that poor starving pup a pile of cheeseburgers and a box of Snausages!

Fascinating photos that just bring up more "what is that?!" type of questions.
Let's hope Kennedy Space Center's launch complex 39 doesn't end up like this in a few years.
Here are a few more sites with a lot more information on this mysterious old spacecraft.
