The Russian Soyuz Rocket program has been active since its first unmanned launch in 1963. The program has recorded over 1700 launches since then – a feat no other space program can claim. Today, the Soyuz Rocket is used primarily to transport personnel and related equipment to the International Space Station. During the early 1980’s, the production of Soyuz launchers reached a peak of 60 per year making this platform the most utilized launch platform in the world. “Soyuz Express” is my effort to capture the grace and beauty of this 50 year old technology as it leaves earth and heads toward an orbital rendezvous with the International Space Station.
Awarded "1st Place Space" by Aviation Week and Space Technology also won an Honorable Mention at the ASAA 2011 International Aerospace Exhibition.
