Making Rockets from AI Generated Images

Extremely Overbuild Launcher

YqaCftA.png

Okay so here's an image I generated from Midjourney. Prompt was "Atlas V rocket".

And here's the closest thing I've got(looks like an off brand Atlas V):

The rocket on the launch pad.

Engine ignition.

Flight

Q2yTUr3.png

Jij4QRl.png

Fairing deployment(I told you it was overbuilt).

FOwouHX.png

Orbital insertion burn and me suddenly realizing that I accidentally built an SSTO...

K50ErUd.png

...So I jettisoned the first stage.

QnoZwVZ.jpg

Orbit! .... wait I still have 3,000m/s of Delta V left?!

XBq7uXK.png%5B*burns for the mun*(note: I increased the ambient lighting)

UeQNLCf.jpg

Separation of upper stage(I wasted a lot of fuel + the probe still had 2,000 m/s).

UGt0ALi.jpg

8C4YNpu.jpg

7ViszYq.jpg

nWgsj5v.png

Orbital insertion around the mun.

Z8N1C8c.jpg

Orbit!

Maybe I should launch a heavier payload next time...

...or maybe even turn it into a crewed vehicle and add reusability.

But anyways. That was quite overbuilt.

Fantastic work! I made a minor adjustment on the muo interstage so it fit better (visually) with the upper stage, and it might need more roll capability. But otherwise this is awesome.

Ai Generated Rocket II (Also Overbuilt)

So I made another rocket, this time not using BDB. It still ended up being extremely overbuilt. I used Craiyon to generate the rocket this time.

Download the Craft(Neptune Camera not included): https://kerbalx.com/Smart_Boy/Probe

Prompt: "powerful rocket launching into space."

Original image:

The Mission:

Rocket on pad.

Goofy liftoff, launch pad explodes immediately after screenshot is taken. The TWR on liftoff is over 2.5.

Ascent.

Main engine cutoff

*Turns 90 degrees and starts orbital insertion burn.

FGufoYF.png

Stage Separation+fairing deployment.

ZAApXMO.png

Orbital insertion burn continues.

XAKZlXb.jpg

Mun ejection burn.

*Throws away second stage with 4000m/s of ∆V.

Mun orbital insertion.

Fine tuning inclination.

Final orbit achieved + Scansat and science deployed + Neptune camera

Hey everybody. It's been a hot minute hasn't it? Well, I got something for you guys today.
I was particularly drawn to this one that almost has a lower bottleneck thing going.

Thus I present Lampa I, perhaps one of my weirder shaped rockets I've made (which is probably saying something seeing as this is here of all places).
