The Descent Module - the only part of Soyuz that is recoverable, is occupied by the crew for launch, orbital maneuvering, docking, undocking, re-entry, and landing. The Descent Module has a nominal mass of 2,800kg and a length of 2.2 meters. Energia Corp. the manufacturer of Soyuz calculated that this spacecraft took two years to build and costs upwards of $65 million dollars to fly. 

 

Soyuz is a simple, proven design ideal for its current role of taking crews to and from a space station and providing recovery capabilities for longer duration crews. Its inadequacies are balanced by the bigger American Space Shuttle (now retired), which delivered heavier cargo and consumables. It is noteworthy that due to competition between the superpowers throughout the first four decades of human spaceflight, two complementary craft have been created.
