Space Tourism Team, “GIGABay” & “Ceres G”
Years ago we dreamed with the possibility of being a privileged Space Tourist ; in ten years we could choose what "Space's dream" we would like to embark, thanks to a wide selection of future Space Tourism projects or projects that are in development today .
The "Space Tourism Team" that I propose, could consist on a large cargo plane like the "GIGABay" and a Spaceship like the "Ceres G" shuttle, a compact vehicle, lightweight and built with the latest generation of high tech materials.
All begins in a hangar specially adapted ...
1· The "GIGABay" loads on its special cargo bay, three Spaceships "Ceres G", one on the launch pad and two subjected in a system similar to an industrial chain production, located in the ceiling of the cargo bay. After launching the first vehicle "Ceres G", the system "loads" another vehicle on the catapult launch, until the three Spaceships are launched
2· The "GIGABay" takes off from any airport, reaches 13,000m of altitude, opens tailgates (remember that the "GIGABay" concept plane is equipped with a special system to control the pressure inside cargo bay)... extends the EMSC System (Electro Magnetic Space Catapult) with a length of almost 50m (extended) of electro magnetic's rail with an angle of inclination of 20 ° with the horizontal plane from the fuselage's "GIGABay"; launches the "Ceres G" when it reaches an ejection speed of about 200km/h .
3· The vehicle "Ceres G" is ejected about 200km/h, when the air flow "hits" on the back side, thanks to its design is pushed, reaching a speed of more than 600km/h .
4· A few seconds later, the rocket engine is started and the Spaceship "Ceres G" is propelled to an altitude of 115,000m .
"Hit" air flow propulsion,concept
The "GIGABay" runs at more than 800 km/h when it catapult the "Ceres G" Spaceship (remember the special conditions of cargo bay system- review "GIGABay" concept-), the next schemes describe how it
could reach for few seconds a speed of 600 km/h
5· They enjoy few minutes in Zero Gravity ... and after, thanks to 11 boosters' "Ceres G" put the ship in the best path for a safe descent.
6· Thanks to a special designed "Ceres G" fuselage, this descends into a glide flight taking advantage of the airflow, redirecting it when intakes from the ducts over the fuselage and exit from the rear variables exhaust.
7· The "Ceres G" lands on any airport runway and our Space Adventure ends with success.
8· Six Space Adventurers have conquered the Space border; One pilot and five Space Tourists one of those with the privilege of having traveled in the co-driver seat.
9· The primarily objectives of this concept of Space Tourism are to maximize all recourses to put a vehicle into the Space and to increase the target of people who can afford an adventure like this, not forgetting that the plane used to launch the Spaceships, the "GIGABay", is an ecofriendly concept airplane; we can talk of "Green Space Tourism" for this 21st Century.
