Russia's CEV

Manned spaceship design unveiled, BBC

"It is designed to replace the Soyuz vehicle currently in use by Russia and will allow Europe to participate directly in crew transportation. The reusable ship was conceived to carry four people towards the Moon, rivalling the US Ares/Orion system. Unlike previous crewed vehicles, it will use thrusters to make a soft landing when it returns to Earth."

Editor's note: Soyuz vehicles have been using braking rockets for decades.
