Arabsat-6A Mission

SpaceX is targeting Thursday, April 11 for a Falcon Heavy launch of the Arabsat-6A satellite from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The primary launch window opens at 6:35 p.m. EDT, or 22:35 UTC, and closes at 8:31 p.m. EDT, or 00:31 UTC on Friday, April 12. The satellite will be deployed approximately 34 minutes after liftoff.

Following booster separation, Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters will attempt to land at SpaceX’s Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Falcon Heavy’s center core will attempt to land on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Pegasus VTOVL Launcher and Transport

Pegasus VTOVL SSTO

The 3D models in this video are based on illustrations found in the 1969 publication “Frontiers of Space” by Philip Bono and Kenneth Gatland. Images from the book are linked in the ‘Sources’ section, below.

In the 60’s Philip Bono pioneered re-usable single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO), vertical take-off and vertical-landing (VTOVL) spacecraft design.

Bono was an engineer at Douglas Aircraft Company (which eventually merged with McDonnell Aircraft in 1967 to form McDonnell Douglas).

Bono was a visionary and inventive engineer whose work influenced spacecraft design for many years.

Based on his work was the famous “Delta Clipper” (McDonnell Douglas DC-X/A), a re-usable VTOVL which flew in the early 90’s – more than two decades before Space-X’s remarkable achievements.

Amongst Bono’s innovations was a reusable plug-nozzle rocket engine which doubled as a liquid-hydrogen-cooled heatshield.

Bono was an advocate of intercontinental sub-orbital transport, which could drastically reduce international travel time.

For example: New York to Singapore in approximately 40 minutes.

One of his designs was “Pegasus”, a ballistic VTOVL launch vehicle.

Pegasus could provide rapid Intercontinental transport for 170+ passengers, or deliver ~91 tonnes to 560km orbit.

Technically, Pegasus was a semi-SSTO (Single-Stage-To-Orbit) vehicle, as it used re-usable drop tanks to achieve orbit. This reduced total mass for Continue reading Pegasus VTOVL Launcher and Transport
