    Champions of the reusable concept assert that the lowest cost approach (they claim in fact, "the only way to achieve truly low cost") is to develop a highly reusable (up to 50 or 60 missions before overhaul), preferably single stage to orbit, vehicle that can be turned around for re-flight. Abstract - This paper describes a qualitative business plan for starting a space tourism business. The first step is the development of the Ascender small sub-orbital spaceplane - a sort of "re-invented X" - designed for quick turnaround, and capable of carrying two pilots and either experiments or two passengers. Ascender uses no new technology and could be flying in three years.

    Blackstar: The two-stage-to-orbit Spaceplane. During the s, Soviet-era aerospace companies developed plans for what they called a “space fighter.” The primary roles for this spaceplane concept were the following: military reconnaissance, satellite interception, space station defense, and crew transfer applications. The Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle (IXV) is a European Space Agency (ESA) experimental suborbital re-entry vehicle. It was developed to serve as a prototype spaceplane to validate the ESA's work in the field of reusable launchers. Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle - WikiMili, The Free Encyclopedi.

The Recoverable Booster Space System was a plan circulated in the early 's to use the XB as a recoverable supersonic first stage for a range of systems. Falcon 9 is a two-stage-to-orbit medium lift launch vehicle designed and manufactured by SpaceX in the United States. It is powered by Merlin engines, also developed by SpaceX, burning liquid oxygen (LOX) and rocket-grade kerosene (RP-1) propellants. Its name is derived from the Millennium Falcon and the nine engines of the rocket's first stage. The rocket evolved with versions v (

A two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) spaceplane concept developed in is revisited, and new information is provided to assist in the development of the next-generation space transportation vehicles. The design philosophy, TSTO spaceplane concept, and the design method are briefly described.

A spaceplane is an aerospace vehicle that can fly/glide like an aircraft in Earth's atmosphere and maneuver like a spacecraft in the vacuum of space. To do so, spaceplanes must incorporate features of both aircraft and spacecraft, occupying an intermediate space between the two. Orbital spaceplanes are more like spacecraft, while sub-orbital spaceplanes are more like fixed-wing aircraft.

Skunk Works. Author: Ben R. Rich ISBN: Genre: History File Size: MB A Two Stage To Orbit Spaceplane Concept With Growth Potential. Author. A two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) or two-stage rocket launch vehicle is a spacecraft in which two distinct stages provide propulsion consecutively in order to achieve orbital velocity.

It is intermediate between a three-stage-to-orbit launcher and a hypothetical single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) launcher. At liftoff the first stage is responsible for accelerating the vehicle. 10th AIAA/NAL-NASDA-ISAS International Space Planes and Hypersonic Systems and Technologies Conference.

Two SABREs will power Skylon — a privately funded, single-stage-to-orbit concept vehicle that is feet (84 meters) long. At takeoff, the plane will weigh about tons (, kilograms). A single-stage-to-orbit (or SSTO) vehicle reaches orbit from the surface of a body using only propellants and fluids and without expending tanks, engines, or other major hardware.

The term usually, but not exclusively, refers to reusable vehicles. No Earth-launched SSTO launch vehicles have ever been constructed. To date, orbital launches from Earth have been performed by either fully or.

A two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) spaceplane concept developed in is revisited, and new information is provided to assist in the development of the next-generation space transportation vehicles.

U.S. and European aerospace companies have pushed two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) spaceplane concepts for decades. Most large U.S. airframe manufacturers designed spaceplane-type vehicles during the s and '60s, and XB program documents include a concept for carrying and launching a low-Earth orbiter.

There is an Open Access version for this licensed article that can be read free of charge and without license restrictions.

The content of the Open Access version may differ from that of the licensed version. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking to develop a fully-reusable unmanned spaceplane, and they are now ready to start working their proposed Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1).

The next proposal was for a spaceplane similar in concept to the US Space Shuttle but a little more advanced. Dubbed V-2, it was suggested by a third division of the Ministry of Aerospace Industry.

Like Changcheng 1 this was a two-stage vertical takeoff system, the difference with the first stage being that it was recoverable like that of the. The simplest of the four approaches suggested was Tianjiao 1 (“First in Space 1”), jointly proposed by the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST—the later developer of the Shenzhou capsule) and the aircraft division of the Ministry of Aerospace Industry.

This was virtually an exact copy of the American shuttle or Buran’s aerodynamic shape, with only upturned wingtips, but a.WoodenKnight writes "India's ISRO Chairman, G Madhavan Nair recently gave a brief description of a fully-reusable 2-stage satellite launch vehicle that is being planned at ISRO.

This system is described in two variations, the one with an orbital vehicle that uses a liquid fuel rocket engine and the other with an orbiter using a scramjet.
