Challenge Entry : commercial space

Auto Credit Based on BeefyBoy4516's Out Of This World Challenge [CLOSED + RESULTS]

My first full spacecraft.

After many years of technological advancement commercial space travel is here.

Ever since 1961 after Yuri Gagarin entered space the human mind has pioneered space travel, exploration and discovery. After 1969 humans managed to land the famous Neil Armstrong on the moon, he stayed in space for a total of 8 and a half days. This triggered human curiosity.

Humans began to wonder, 'can we live on the moon', so our civilisation set to work creating leaps in technology. For example Satellites to allow data transfer across the globe.

Back in the twenty first century we have been pioneering commercial space travel. Recently Virgin Galactic ,a commercial space industry, have started to release their own civilian flights for as little as £200,000-£250,000. Yes I can't afford it yet but it is available for a low-ish (for spacetravel) price

The rocket has metal fuselage composed of a mixture of Graphine, a lightweight and tough carbon compound, Aluminium, a lightweight metal and Titanium, a very strong metal.

The Central computer uses cutting edge google AI which will aid landing, taking off and cruising.

This Rocket uses procedural engines with the bottom engine inspired by the Apex Engine from Simple rockets 2 ; this engine is a fuel guzzling powerhouse which is used for takeoffs it uses a mix of kerosene and liquid oxygen called kerlox. The smaller engine is a thermonuclear it uses a mix of kerosene and liquid oxygen called kerlox. inside the middle which is semi-powerful engine designed for higher altitude use.

This rocket will cost roughly £150,000 per launch which compared to the Saturn V is £35,000 cheaper. The rocket will cost around £5,000,000,000 or five billion about £1.4B cheaper than the Saturn V.

Bit about the building.

The build was relatively easy using "no-collision". The hardest part was making the Apex Engine which was a lot of tilting and repeating. This is an expansion of my build WT-UDS which wasn't too good and was incomplete. also there are three seats in the cockpit and three people in the building by the landing pad.

Controls.

Throttle for engines

Use groups

G1+throttle=launch

G2+throttle=stage two (losing bottom half)

G3=detaching command pod (cockpit/top)

G4=Parachute

    @DPSAircraftManufacturer I have it I just really don't like the building tools on SR2 they feel clumsy and imprecise especially the mirror tool
