firstly if you only have $200,000... your ONLY getting fuel... EVEN with a in flight launch. You need to sit down... and draw up your concept....
start from the core... and work your way out. design comes from intricate and detailed thought, and all others are going to do is flood you with their
ideas as opposed to sticking to your original concept.
Come to us when you have the DESIGN, and then maybe we can help you to brainstorm on how to get it in the air.
200,000 space flight is a death trap... you have to create gravity, and climate in your space vehicle... not to mention enough oxygen to last a LONG
period of time. the Carbon Dioxide filters aren't cheap either. your rocket still needs to be built... and you have about 50,000 left.
rocket *ahem* Vehicle, needs to have some form of shelling that will protect it from re-entry burn up. Thats not cheap. I would never fly in a space
vehicle that had 5,000 worth of design in its housing alone... and your out of money by that point, without the fuel to fly it. (or the trained
personnel to join you...)
like I said... I don't want to be a broken cog in your wheel... but your best bet if your adamant on spending your money on space travel give it to
the X plane or whatever the project is called as a buy-in on the final production model. at least then you know in ten years you have a ride to
(sorry for the trollish comment... But I see you've taken my advice on the Multi posting... I thank you for that!)
