RUSSIAN rocket scientists want to use Darwin as a launch pad to send spaceships into orbit.
The Air Launch Aerospace Corporation has written a proposal to use Darwin airport to launch satellites into space.
The plan would have a NK-43 rocket engine piggy-back a ride on an Antonov An-124-100 Ruslan serial heavy cargo aircraft. The rocket would be launched into the atmosphere while the aircraft returns safely to Darwin airport.
