And now ..... my last chance :
"Konkurentom etoi rakety yavlyaetsya proekt firmy ''Yunaited teknolodzhis'', poluchivshii nazvanie UPC (Unmanned Payload Carrier - bespilotnyi nositel' poleznoi nagruzki). V nem ispol'zuyutsya tverdotoplivnye uskoriteli i vneshnii toplivnyi bak ot ''shattla''. K nim podveshivaetsya otsek PN dlinoi 21,9 m i diametrom 6,7 m. K ego zadnei stenke krepitsya blok dvigatelei s sistemoi upravleniya, kotoryi rasschitan na shod s orbity i spusk na parashyute. Massa PN sostavlyaet 52 t, a pri nekotoroi modificacii sistemy - do 68 t."
PS : What do these words mean ? .....Alas, I don't know ..... I don't speak Russian .....
Okay this week's was a little harder to fathom, but here is the explanation from our Space expert:
