The Silver bird


With the space shuttle now grounded permanantlyI've always wondered why this idea that was being explored in WW2 by the Germans as a way of bombing the US hasn't been explored more fully as a way of developing reusable space craft

Re: The Silver bird


I feel ICBMs made this approach redundant.

Good find though, not seen this before. Would it have beeen V3?

Re: The Silver bird


the ICBM may gave rendered it surplus as a weapon, but as a reusable space craft im not so sure, I mean even the rocket sled used to launch it is reusable!

as a method of getting small satellites to low orbit it has to be cheaper long term than the current methods?

Oh Snowy, I didn't answer the V3 question.

This wouldn't have been the V3, that was in fact made and was still in th experimental phase when it was over-run by the allied forces:
