Nice work! How have you got the centre section attached, it looks like you managed to clip it into the asteroid.

Makes me think of when I heard people refer to the shuttle as the "Flying Brick." Now we have the Flying Rock.

Of course, I won't be satisfied until he turns that into an SSTO... =p

I'm waiting for someone to chain asteroids together and make an orbiting model of a caffeine molecule.

And here I was trying to make a space plane to capture an asteroid when I could just make an asteroid into a space plane..

Very good first post/

I have tried to chain asteroids together to make a three-asteroid triangular shaped orbiting base, and unfortunately the sheer mass involved means even moving at 3-4m/s the asteroids simply destroy anything in their path and keep going.

Thanks Everyone! I ended up landing the asteroid close to KSC. Then created a specialized airplane to bring it back to the runway. I can't believe how well this flies! lol. :)

You, sir OP, are going to fit in well round here!

Congrats on 1) really interesting ship design and 2) making a flying Asteroid cage? transport? dunno what to call it, but I don't think it would fly under real physics! (I'm just jealous :wink::sticktongue:)
