Today I built my first SSTO ever! It's a bit odd, but it somehow gets to orbit in one stage. Just don't expect it to get anywhere else.

I used KW Rocketry parts.

It's also surprisingly efficient. Most vessels require boosters and a few stages to make orbit, but this tin can can do it on one fuel tank.

Just don't tell Jeb we used decouplers instead of adapters.
