Description

More wing = More better?

A very pretty, fun, but not exceedingly practical Liquid-fuel-only SSTO shuttle for Kerbin orbit! Longer voyages easy if refueled in orbit.
Craft by Exothermos
Built for 1.2.2

Climb on jets at 25 degrees to 12,000. Shallow-out and activate nukes for speed run. When Jets flame-out pull up to 25 degrees to get a big lift bonus. Burn until 65,000 apoapsis is reached. Cut nukes and coast until 60k. Circularization burn above 60k for best efficency. Reenter at 45 degrees with airbrakes deployed. Use large lift / drag to slow down quickly before wings overheat.
