Since it has been pretty silent here...here is my stealth fighter with 25 km ceiling !

:mrgreen:

Powered with 4 x J-85 that was tested by NASA for Mach 3 speeds !

I was thinking of using very lite composite for it to gain possibly 30 km ceiling !

I am still working on this idea to fly a mother ship to 40-80 km to launch a rocket into space.

Now I have a 100 m spanning ship with 1390 kW from solar panels and a 4 stage rocket that could go Jupiter ( and back ) in a year...and 37 days to Mars and back.

I counted a 1/70 weight compared to APOLLO 11 for instance.

Did you know that the newest high end panels produce 44.7 % efficiency..that is 608 W / m2 at high altitude ?

Paul MacCready's ship SOLAR CHALLENGER flew with 10% efficient panels from London to Paris in 1981.
