Russia is Excellent at Reverse Engineering

This is a subject that I find fascinating and I read about it quite frequently. I especially love the Buran program (Russian space shuttle program that was scrapped). There's a long list of technologies that the Russians have reverse engineered in the past ranging from cars, cameras, to the B-29 Superfortress. It's amazing what technology can be duplicated by tearing down and re-building with new parts.

Reverse engineering is the best way to learn about anything. I'm more fascinated by reverse engineering in biology and how we've learned to artificially create many things found in nature, or parts of the human body, like organs, or even DNA.
