    Maybe there will be multiple solutions per payload class akin to transportation methods on Earth. The flight profile featured a reusable flyback booster launched from a modular launch platform, an expendable second stage with a reusable orbiter that would have landed vertically. The United Kingdom continued to contribute scientific elements to satellite launches and space projects. Proposals were to include concept studies and prototypes for the Descent, Transfer Vehicle, and Refueling Elements targeting a human lunar landing in Figure 8. Figure 7. The designs below fall into three categories, electrically driven, chemically driven, and mechanically driven.

    The team behind SpaceShipOne has built and flown a commercial sub-orbital launch system — SpaceShipTwo — based on this technology. Buran-T Fully recoverable version of Energia launch vehicle, with four winged boosters and a winged core stage. If everything goes well, the first prototype might fly within a few years, so stay tuned to this story. Today there are many commercial launch companies. Path 2 was more conservative, with either the Path 1 booster or an expendable booster launching a small re-entry vehicle - a 'Space Taxi'. The British company Reaction Engines Ltd.

    Since such a tall tower could not support its own weight using traditional materials, massive pellets are projected upward from the bottom of the tower and redirected back down once they reach the top, so that the force of redirection holds the top of the tower aloft. Space Shuttle American winged orbital launch vehicle. Vehicles could coast up to low or even geosynchronous orbital height; then a small rocket motor burn would be required to circularize the orbit. The power required would probably be provided by superconductive energy storage units distributed along the tunnel. Herakles Russian air-launched winged orbital launch vehicle.

The second stage was mounted on top of the booster. The structure would constantly need around MW of power to keep it in place. This dream may be just over the horizon. Two versions were envisioned - a preliminary one the size of a DC-8 and a monster vehicle capable of delivering one million pounds payload to orbit.

Airplane-like first stage[ edit ] Some TSTO designs comprise an airplane -like first stage and a rocket -like second stage. Von Braun's design for a reusable space launcher was remarkable in its tubby design. Join our Space Forums to keep talking space on the latest missions, night sky and more!
