Post Rail launched SSTO system !   Posted on: Sun Jan 13, 2019 6:23 am
Rail launched system for a SSTO !

Really simple and cost effective and reliable ! :wink:

Operated by 70% efficient VAWT wind turbines...which I also invented.


Based on this data; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocket_sled_launch

Due to factors including the exponential nature of the rocket equation and higher propulsive efficiency than if a rocket takes off stationary, a NASA Maglifter study estimated that a 270 m/s (600 mph) launch of an ELV rocket from a 3000-meter altitude mountain peak could increase payload to LEO by 80% compared to the same rocket from a conventional launch pad.[5] Mountains of such height are available within the mainland U.S. for the easiest logistics, or nearer to the Equator for a little more gain from Earth's rotation. Among other possibilities, a larger single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) could be reduced in liftoff mass by 35% with such launch assist, dropping to 4 instead of 6 engines in one case considered.[5]

I also developed a SSTO plane to be operated from rail lauch system.

I checked that shuttle ( looking at the videos ) burned 50% of its fuel when 15% of the speed was reached.
