Caption: Cosmodrome. Construction work underway at the site of the Vostochny Space Centre in the Amur Region of eastern Russia. In the foreground is the administrative building. This site is being built to reduce Russia's dependency on the Baikonur Cosmodrome which, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, is in Kazakhstan. This is partly for security reasons and partly to reduce the rental costs of Baikonur. The new cosmodrome will have seven launch pads, will support manned flights and cargo supply to space stations and is expected to be completed by 2018.
