You saw Richard Branson’s, Vox space, launching rocket from plane to space. We are proposing the same, but bigger, with 500 t reusable rocket, pushed from the mountain and ignited on 11 km, raising payload mass and decreasing first stage workload on rocket engines. Bullet exiting barrel, scaled on mountain and space rocket, we get launch system that is efficient and ecological. Raising ~ 15% payload mass, decreasing 40 % first stage workload on rocket engines, with 2.5 G of acceleration & start velocity of 950 km/h, by starting engines at 11 km of elevation and speed of 950 km/h. Being sustainable, quietest, ecological & economical launch system, with secure flight trajectory it could be safely built near highly densely populated areas, like high frequency modern airport at an altitude exceeding 2000 m. It will be designed to be compatible with today’s space launch rockets, like Falcon 9, Vega, Angara, Delta and possibly others with propulsion supporting balancing platform technology that is in a process of IP protection study. Location of the launcher in the center of the Europe’s Balkan Peninsula is being considered, while parts of the technology are being tested in the form of a ballistic parachute of the modular aircraft SvetoLet. Project is accelerating with support of Astropreneurs.eu and others.
From time to time our workshop create some aerospace motivated products so that home have some cosmic touch.
