One word. REUSABILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is that clear enough for you?rolleyes.gif

Reusability is nice, but when you want to use something once it isn't too important. Plus the reusability comes at great cost. It might be cheaper to make 50 rockets than to build something to be reused and maintain it. Each space shuttle launch toward the end of the shuttle program was costing $400 million tax dollars. Most of that was just maintenance.

How are you going to produce lift in space which would be the only reason to have them?

It does not only apply in space. On earth you will need to use far less combustible to get out of atmosphere. The number 1 cost factor is the total weight of what you send into space.

I'm not sure if you're aware but the Space Shuttle program was not actually a huge success. 2 ships of the entire fleet exploded, killing everyone inside. It was an engineering marvel, sure, but probably over complicated. Reusability is nice, but completely useless if we're going to Mars. I understand going to LEO it would make sense to use a "plane" vehicle, but the Space Shuttle did not reach its goal by FAR. They were intending to do WAY more launches than they actually did. The maintenance costs were extraordinary.
They are not going backwards in technology at all, you have that completely wrong. You should refrain from spreading misinformation, which is already told to you by other posters.

I will say what I said to the other guy that tried to tell me the same thing. I will post what I want when I want and my information is valid and correct. It is not my fault if you are the one that is not.

I was hoping you would have realized this on your own which is why i didn't acknowledge it until now. The Orion spacecraft (replacement for the space shuttle) is reusable.

And now, I shall take my leave.

Future reusable rockets will probably be like this, not like the space shuttle:

I thought you guys were cutting nasa's already miniscule budget? Hard to launch new rocket technology when you don't have any money.
