Telluric Rockets (2600-4900)


Heavy and chemical-propelled at the beginning, rockets changed over time

These very simple machines, equipped with plasma breeder reactors, having had hydrogen fusion cells, had the peculiarity of landing vertically, which had the disadvantage of a more difficult access to the loading but a gain of drag on takeoff . These rockets were used for all transport functions until the 4900s, when they were supplanted by new vessels fitted with AMAT turbines, capable of landing and re-collecting under all conditions, including atmospheric conditions. On this side, these ancient rockets, direct heirs of the first naves of the pioneers of the XXème century, could take off in atmospheric environment but in no case to pose.

The rocket below is one of the last. She is seen serving Mimas, one of Saturn's satellites. It has two wheels with internal gravity, but clearly visible here, which disappeared on this type of vessels because of their ungravids crews. On these low-gravity planets, they had their full utility. This rocket, Jarnell. E. Gibbs, constructed at Atmanring, tranquilitatis mare, Moon, commissioned in 3505, was preserved for a time as a museum after its retreat in 3955. It had six main reconstructions, mainly serving the planets of the Saturnian system, With Jovian orbital bases and stations. Height: 156 meters, weight 2550 tons, carbon, titanium, crew 5 to 28, freight 2500 tons or 360 passengers, speed M485.2.
