  1. Baikal is a Russian non-alcoholic drink of dark-brown colour. The drink basis is water, the composition includes also sugar, citric acid, carbon dioxide and extracts of some natural medicinal herbs. It has been produced since 1969. It was developed as the Soviet counterpart of Coca Cola. After the beginning of Pepsi Сola production in the USSR in 1973 the formula was revised. From 1973 Baikal has had an original formula, which now closed to Russian company "OST-Aqua".
  2. The Baikal booster is a proposed reusable flyback booster for the Angara rocket family based on the Angara Universal Rocket Module. It was designed by the Molniya Research and Industrial Corporation for the Khrunichev Space centre, reusing the flyback and control system for the reusable Buran orbiter. The booster would be equipped with a RD-191 rocket engine burning kerosene and liquid oxygen to provide approximately 200 tons of thrust. In addition, it would be equipped with a folding wing stored parallel to the fuselage of the vehicle during the booster stage of the flight. After separation from the Angara launcher's second stage at an altitude of about 75 kilometers and a speed of Mach 5.6, the Baikal's wing would rotate 90 degrees and the booster glides in upside down position reducing speed. Once the booster reaches subsonic speeds a U turn is performed and an air-breathing RD-33 jet engine in its nose section is started to fly back to its launching site and make a powered horizontal landing on a runway. Apart from economic advantages, this procedure greatly reduces the risk of falling space debris.
