Eugen Sänger... the father of this type of spacecraft...

Eugen Sänger is not an appropriate name for this type of spacecraft because the Silbervogel he designed was only designed to reach suborbital altitude despite being intended to reach space.

Eugen Sänger is not an appropriate name for this type of spacecraft because the Silbervogel he designed was only designed to reach suborbital altitude despite being intended to reach space.

Since the first Dream Chaser orbital vehicle has been named Tenacity, the other nine Dream Chasers should be given these following names:
- Intrepid
- Joe Walker
- Neil Armstrong
- Friendship
- Liberty
- Gene Cernan
- Wally Schirra
- Bill Nelson
- John Young

-Four of the names you have proposed have zero to do with any lifting body/space plane program (Friendship, Liberty, Gene Cernan, Wally Schirra).
-One of them (Bill Nelson) is a US politician from Florida who, let's be real, forced NASA to take him on a glorified political junket in exchange for continued political support.
-One (Intrepid) is a distinguished retired US aircraft carrier, but who's only connection to the lifting body/space plane program is to serve as real estate for Enterprise.


Therefore, over half the names you yourself proposed earlier in this thread have little or nothing to do with what was intended to be a lighthearted thread naming future Dream Chasers. You have no business correcting Tywin for his suggested name of Eugen Sanger, and if you are a Gentleman/woman, you owe Tywin an apology and should delete your post chastising them.
