Get this from a library! The aerobraking space transfer vehicle. [Glen Andrews; Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.; NASA/USRA University Advanced Design Program.; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. The aerobraking device is fitted with a toroid-like skirt and is integral with the support structure of the propulsion system and other systems of the space vehicle. The vehicle is intended to be transported in components to a space station in lower earth orbit where it is assembled for use as a transportation system from low earth orbit to geosynchronous earth orbit and return.

Aerobraking Saves Cost and Mass. A large, heavy spacecraft requires a large, expensive launch vehicle. NASA has successfully driven down costs of space exploration missions by using smaller spacecraft for launch on smaller, less costly rockets than those used for . The Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) is an landing using aerobraking and parachute descent systems. Figure 7. Intermarsnet vehicle configuration. Figure 9. Plume interaction studies for MSG aerothermodynamics for space vehicles aerothermodynamics for space vehicles.   Thanks to aerobraking, the spacecraft's hour orbit period has been shaved down to a hour orbit, but hundreds of drag passes are ahead. "We've still got a long ways to go," Sidney told The big problem is not to go up to space. The big problem is to go to orbital speed, so the space ship stays in space and doesn't fall down to up is only about 7% to 17% of the effort. More than 83% of the effort to launch a space shuttle is for going to orbital speed.. Inverted aerobraking deals with this bigger part only.

This appendix describes the work that was performed to define the Lunar transfer vehicle and Lunar excursion vehicle which were part of the 'Report of the Day Study on Human Exploration of the Moon and Mars.' A detailed concept definition of both vehicles including overall dimensions, mass properties, subsystem definition, and operational flight sequences is included.
