Since R7 rocket family still in widespread use, and with the retirement of the Space Shuttle the Soyuz LV booster with the Soyuz TMA-M spacecraft remains the only way to ferry people to and from the ISS, I'd say that constitutes "ongoing greatness" rather than "former"...(at least until 2013 when it will be replaced by the "Angara" family of rockets)

But yeah, the P-7 "Семёрка" is a great ol' dame.

Согласен - гламурный. Но зафотканый до дыр :В Уже и не знаешь с какого бы ракурса её снять, чтоб на зубах не скрипело от занудства. ;p Пришлось пообработать, чтоб совсем уж скушно не было - тени вытянул, тона подкорректировал... небо заменил :D
