Since we have one for weapons, and I've seen a few spacecraft there, I decided to create a thread specifically for alternate spacecraft (rockets, ferry-craft, shuttles, space-stations, probes, rovers, space suits included, etc.). Go Ape.
Actually no, they just used a Titan 3M launcher. The Soviet TKS spacecraft was launched on a Proton.Big Gemini intruiges me...that will need a beefy rocket!
Really? But it looks so much...meatier than a regular capsule.Actually no, they just used a Titan 3M launcher.
Blimey. Now that would be damn cool. It'll probally be a total bankrupt flop of a company within a few months but if it were to be....spacefaring Manx....Incidentally, there's a British company called Excalibur Almaz, based on the Isle of Man, that has bought the plans to TKS and Almaz, the military space station it was designed to resupply, and now plans to launch them on commercial launchers.
That spacecraft makes absolutely no sense!
I assume that before exiting the atmosphere it is planned to do the same, looking at those gigantic fins on the initial first stage?!Because when it returned to the Earth it was designed to do atmospheric re-entry by a long slow glide over 55% of the Earth's circumference.
Actually, those are pure 1950's Von Braun (but note most unlikely to have been doable)I assume that before exiting the atmosphere it is planned to do the same, looking at those gigantic fins on the initial first stage?!
EDIT, wait, I think I even see a total of 3 stages with wings.
