Drafted spacecraft that will be able to do without rockets

Now for the withdrawal of cargo and astronauts into orbit used rocket-carriers with detachable steps. And not the first year projects, in which it would be possible to use «common» aircraft. Of course, there are the ships of reusable use, for example, the American «Space Shuttle», but the idea of the Russian designer and the author of the project somewhat interesting.

For the authorship of the project is domestic designer Vladimir Denisov, according to his plan, a new spacecraft will be able to dispense with the usual rockets. The basis for this decision can be a sub-orbital plane MG-19. MG-19 — this is one of the unrealized Soviet projects that reached the prototype stage. It is interesting that for propulsion on the ship design is provided as rocket engines, and on Board the nuclear installation. Naturally, the draft was finalized taking into account modern realities and modified to convert both freight and passenger traffic. Externally, the spacecraft is very similar to the already mentioned American «space Shuttle» and Soviet «Buran».

According to experts, a spaceship in the manufacture and operation cost is cheaper than any existing analogues, and it can be used for making long flights to the moon or Mars. To use special space refueling tankers, which are also described in the report of the inventor. At the moment the project is under consideration, and the starting date for its implementation at the moment is also not known.
