Methane  Fuel for Russian Space Shuttles

Future Russian reusable rocket and space system will possibly use liquefied methane as fuel, Russian engineers say.
      
      Russian engineers have analyzed various designs of this system and have chosen the final project of a family of reusable space rockets, based on module principle and providing delivery of various useful things on a near-earth orbit.
      
      Current research is focused on rocket engines, using a mixture of methane and oxygen, which is much cheaper, than traditional kerosene and has higher thermal capacity.
      
      Russian reusable rockets will start operation not earlier than 2025.
