Space seaport, 3D visualization
« on: 01/14/2017 01:58 PM »
It is interesting to hear your opinion about this option the landing.

Video


PS. Perhaps the video, the film could have been done better, but it turned out as is.
To view, set enhanced playback speed, 1.5 or 2.

You need a hige precision in landing. That is complicad.

And the drone ship from SpaceX is not so big how this in the video.

This is unpractical. SpaceX make it easier, better.

Certainly not required for F9 / FH but an interesting idea for ITS recovery.

Thank you for your opinion, it is important to me.

For me it was not in order to preserve the proportions of the objects.
I wanted to show the way to keep a very expensive engine for the rocket.
The surface of the landing can be moved with a small special loaders, managed by radio.
Landing surface can move along the rails by means of electric motors.

PS. I want to draw another way to landing a rocket, but now I have a shortage of free time.

Is the idea that the rocket is refueled and flies back to it's land-based take-off and landing site?

I think it's possible. On the other sea vessels (barges) can be placed on the equipment separately. Fuel for the rocket. Useful things in space, etc. The principle of modularity has long been known.

China is building islands in the South China Sea for military bases so why not one for a landing site .

There are sandbanks and reefs there. Not really building islands, just reenforcing them. Something semipermanent like drilling platforms would do much better and are built easier.
