Concerning the wings as discussed in this thread at least a little bit - might there be a way to provide wings for spacecrafts that can be shifted, rolled up, pulled into the craft and out again later or something like this?

Then the vehicle could start having the wings shifted or folded (etc.) out and the shift or fold (...) them in in regoions where they are useless. It should keep then shifted or folded in during reentry and shiftbthem out later again in regions where they provide use.

May that be a raw idea for a technology prize to be offered by WTN & XPRIZE Foundation?

or do away with the wings entirely and use a lifting body.
Lifting bodies have been proved as controllable during the 60s
look up any of these designs at www.astronautix.com
M2F2, X24A and X24 B and HL10.
