single stage to orbit space plane

this is the game changer a open source space craft for humanity this is not just a piece of hardware its a new open source movement and a ??

this is the start of a home built real space craft that opens space up to the common man and disrupters the global geopolitical system the established space industry and military industrial complex and jump starts true space exploration and colonization and the advancement of the human race

You might be asking yourself "Man is this some kind of joke I son't understand? Well the answer is no. Although most rocket projects are by NASA or some other government federation, the point of this project is to get it affordable to those interested in engineering.

Some of the Project's Goals are

- Relatively Low Cost

- Single Stage 

- Completely Open Source

- Explanation Of Each Step and Why It's Crucial

We hope to allow technology that is only held by the richest into the hands of those who are capable of and wanting to take a spin at Aerospace Engineering For Themselves

  • Part 1 - Forseeable Problems

    Of Course, A Project Like This Has it's Fair Shares Of Problems. Some Forseeable Problems And Solutions Include

    - Overall Cost Will Be Generally High, Regardless Of Changes

    We know this and it's unavoidable, but we can at least try to get it as low as possible, to make the experience good for everybody.

    - To Completely Escape Earth's Atmosphere Would Mean Travelling 300 Miles Up

    The Rocket Engine (Star 48) Will Be Versatile Enough To Make It There In Less Than An Hour If Done Right

    - There's No Oxygen In Space

    The Vessel Will have An Oxygen System Built Into It as Well as a Recycling System

    - What Do You Use Material Wise?

    We will focus on Heat Resistance, Radiation Resistance and Shrapnel Resistance as Well as other specific Materials that will allow for it to be built safely

    - Electricity?

    Solar Panels,  NI-Cad and Voltage Boosters will do the trick.

    - Gravity?

    The Vessel Will Have A Rotating Chamber That Will Create The Effect Of Gravity.

    - Communication and Fail-safes?

    Radio Waves Are The Best Way to Go for Communication, and The Vessel will have an Emergency Pod, Designed For Total Usage of 1 Week.

    - How Do You Tell If It's Sound?

    We will focus on creating procedures that will show just show safe/viable a certain part or process is.

    - What About The Space Suit?

    Those will probably be the cheapest part of the project, and will have all of the design needs shown.

    - How in the Hell will it go up?

    Using the Star 48 Engine, the Rocket will be able to generate up to 15,000 lbs of thrust and go up to 340,000 mph theoretically.

    At the next part, i'll be talking about the design process and chambers, as well as the material choice!

    hi  I started this project as a companion project to my single stage to orbit ultra lite space plane project because I can foresee it getting filled up and maxed out very quickly and I wanted a separate forum to expand on what I already got and use this project as a portal to get more people involved I have been talking to a lot of people of late and have been getting a lot of enthusiasm from some of the biggest players in the field im really surprised when anyone even returns my e mail let a lone some of these groups but this isn't about the big shots in the aerospace industry its about you average people interested in space who can realistically go there in the not to distant future so this sites for you the people ready to make it happen NOW.
