Sister Ship by steve-burg Sister Ship by steve-burg
This was an attempt to design a fairly believable spaceship.

This craft makes use of antimatter/fusion hybrid propulsion, and the crew compartment is heavily shielded and includes a spinning section to allow for simulated gravity during prolonged flight.

If we could afford to build one... why not amortize the cost and build two :)?

This is one of several views in this "series"...

We would have to build something that could make getting to space cheaper first before we can do this.
My thought is, (And from what I've read that NASA has suggested) is that we build an elavator to space first

That's true! The biggest obstacle to space travel is just getting off the earth. If we had an elevator system, large ships could be built in orbit at a fraction of the cost since we wouldn't have to lift all the materials with rockets $$$
:D

Yup Yup, and rockets are like trying to compare the efficiency of someone trying to throw something strait up as apposed to lifting with a pully

If you lean back and squint a little, it looks like a monster.

Ah, it's nice to see a genuinely realistic spaceship once in a while. :meow:

I agree completely! I started this little project after reading on some forum somewhere that "realistic spaceships are boring".

I just couldn't let that one go :)!!!

Peh, I can see why you wouldn't let that go. It's my opinion that people only think that because they don't understand how realistic things work, or something like that. . .
