The Raging Sandwich

So I spent the past week designing this...

Recommended Posts

I spent the last week or so designing my own spacecraft. The capsule, rocket, space suit, engine, control panel, everything! Here are pictures (some aren't completed):

I designed this for my book Fly Higher, but I don't know. I thought it would just be something fun to design.

@The Raging Sandwich: And that is how it begins! Many years ago, I started a notebook like that. Started by drawing actual space vehicles, such as Saturn series, the Mercury series, then on to the Space Transport System (space shuttle). By the time I reached 10th grade, I was designing my own spacecraft. Because of numerous moves and the passage of time, I managed to lose that notebook. If I ever found it, I think I would actually use KSP to test those designs!

Frak, my drawing skills are awful, but I do have some stuff to show...

Admittedly, some of that stuff involves deuterium-tritium antimatter-catalyzed fusion. Yeah, I wanted an RSS SSTO, and with dV to spare. My intentions were not peaceful.

I sometimes do stuff like this (but still less advanced and realistic than your design :))

So, here's my crаppy fusion torch. I'm adding an image from CoaDE that simulates the exhaust.

Should I resort to Paint to preserve your eyes in the future?
