Fuji
« on: 11/07/2006 08:54 AM »
Found this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuji_%28Spacecraft%29

while looking for info about the Indian capsule.

Are they any resources providing more info on this dead Japanese project ?

The book ( http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/4785387580/503-9174822-2808701 ) which is given as reference in the wikipedia article is available on amazon.co.jp. The title is "Our manned space ships - the Japanese individual space transportation system Fuji" by Sinya Matsuura.

I have received the book, there are nice artworks of the Japanese capsule. Looks like Apollo, but with an incredibly low angle for the back cone.

The Minimum System configuration of Fuji was essentially just a Reentry capsule with a manned space flight endurance of 24 hours. It was scheduled for development at the early stage of the overall project. This minimum system called the Core Module (CM), and was to be a cone-shaped module with a diameter of 3.7m, gross weight of 3 tonnes or less, and room for a crew of three. It was to have thrusters for position control and a rocket engine capable of producing a small amount of thrust. The targeted manufacturing cost was to be about 800 million yen each.

Seems like an interesting capsule. Less than 3 tonnes for 3 people and endurance of 24 hours is a unique configuration...
