the accident at virgin galactic
from the information > I have here >
on the space ship two catastrophe >
there seem to be two causes
to having been leading up to this desaster !
first the fuselage should not be able to be flipping up
just from the aero dynamic force itself ....
this has to be happening at a very slow >
at a controlled rate !
along with the right aileron control ....
especially at this relatively .... low altitude
and high speed >>> this being the second cause >
it doesnt need to be done at this height it all
but should be done in space already >
right after the maximum ballistic height reached
because then there is the least danger
of over stressing the structure ....
the flying configuration > is needed only >
right > after departing the carrier plane
to control the going up phase
and then > to land after the shuttlecock phase from
100km down to around 10km ....
but to test the apposite > is simply insane .......
as is the whole concept > not ideal .....
becauce the fuselage should not be movable it all
since you can fashion a high T tail
like on a boing 727 ....
going right from the main cabin structure up !
where then no two moving contraptions are needed
to provide both control of the flying
and the controlled falling mode !
because this one structure is going up and to the rear at 45°
we will be having clear air on falling
with the T aileron pointing up !
and no need for two moving sticks
because the permanent angled up structure
is clearing the rocket exaust as well !
so there is no need for a twin tail !
all in all we will then be having no more drag
and all the control on both modes ...
with only the T aileron on the very top moving !
