NOTE: At this time,
there are endless media fantasy images
purporting large spacecraft. All do not accord
the momenta of mass and would pull themselves
apart. All designs on this site are viable.
Launch System #1: Many light-weight Shuttles
ferry scores from airborne launch platforms. This is one of
many systems I planned out in 1980, however Burt Rutan of
Scaled Composites has designed a perfectly similar plane for
Paul Allen and Stratolaunch.
