Russian policemen guard the Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft as it is transported to its launch pad at Baikonur cosmodrome June 13, 2010. In Baikonur as elsewhere, the once-pioneering Russian space sector is struggling to live up to its legacy, end an embarrassing series of botched launches, modernise decaying infrastructure and bring in new blood and new ideas.
