Europe's newest spacecraft, the IXV, or Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle, has moved a step closer to its planned launch in 2014.
As you probably suspected, the US American tenants of the ISS soon won't be able to pay the rent. Fortunately for them, we give them a gentle ride home. :D

Real inovative Space News, unlike ESA trying to engineer what NASA has been doing for six decades. :P

Oh no, not the reusable space toilet paper idea again. :roll:

Spacenews.com is indeed a shit web site.

Ariane 5 could have brought the Columbus Module to the ISS. But a taxi driver asked us for a few Euros in return for a trip in his taxi. We had pity on the taxi driver. These days, he tries to make a living as a dosser.

The same one that put man on the Moon. Oh wait, that was the Saturn V, which is still to this day the most powerful rocket ever built. The most powerful rocket currently in service is our Delta-4.

The most powerful rocket ever built will soon be the SLS. It would have been the Ares V, but Mister Scyents Oboompa-Loompa cancelled the program.

Saturn V was designed under the direction of Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph

on Braun's design was based in part on his work on the Aggregate series of rockets, especially the A-10, A-11, and A-12, in Germany during World War II.


once again, you were unable to achieve anything on your own.

Actually the Falcon Heavy is about to become the most powerful booster since the Saturn V.

If Germany could have built a Saturn V, London would really have been fucked.
