Venezuelan Space Craft

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visited Venezuela on Friday to discuss oil, defense and nuclear energy cooperation with Latin America's main leftist foe of the United States, President Hugo Chavez.

The talks involved a deal to launch a $20 billion venture between Russian firms and Venezuelan state company PDVSA to pump 450,000 barrels a day -- almost a fifth of the OPEC member's current output -- from the vast Orinoco heavy oil belt.

In return Chavez wants nuclear energy, space technology and beefing up defenses with Russian arms.

I can’t help wondering what a Venezuelan space ship would look like.
