Awesome pics. Thanks for the post.

I’m trying to think of what I might have sitting around here that I can mount that motor in image #23 in.

Wouldn’t that be a kick?

Expletive!

We are SCREWING UP here!
The only thing the In-Trenched Bureaucracy at NASA does well is
Burn Up Astronauts!

If you'd given a Billion Dollars to the ("Wizards of Aerospace") the Rutans and (Now,His Lordship) Richard Branson...
They'd already have a Tourista Hotel complex on Mars and be building a Casino.

Possibly. On the other hand, there is a slight difference between making little sub orbital hops and interplanetary spaceflight.
