The Tesladyne is an experimental aerospike SSTO designed to prod at the limits of LFO propulsion. It is capable of ascending to a 100x70 km orbit, and returning safely. More skilled flyers may have superior performance. To ascend, pitch up to 45 degrees after takeoff. At 10 km, move into gravity turn. To descend, lower periapsis to 65 km, and aerobrake at 90 degrees pitch. When periapsis is below the surface, pitch down to 45 degrees for reentry. Glide to landing. Images, and download, available at KerbalX.
So. KSP has got me interested in designing (not making, but designing) liquid rocket engines. From my research, it seems that turbopumps have been limited to two types of pumps: axial, or centrifugal. However, there are other types of pumps for which I can't see any issues with besides RPM (and that can be solved with clever drive-shaft modifications). These are: 1. A staged Roots compressor- which has the advantage of creating a high amount of pressure while reducing risk of sloshing 2. A scroll compressor- which is compact, lightweight, and relatively efficient, making it a good candidate for upper stage and transfer engines Any ideas you have, I would love to hear. What do you think?
