Honest Jeb rocket grew out of a need for a low cost per ton launch vehicle for the common 40-50 ton payload market. Engineers long had an idea that use of solid fuel boosters is the key to cheap access to space. However no one could create a lower stage of mixed solid and liquid fuel that was quite satisfactory.
In a design meeting KSP’s chief astronaut interjected
why don’t you use more boosters? The idea lead to a design that coupled a cheap all solid first stage with an expensive but reusable upper stage. For his insight the new rocket was named after the chief astronaut.
dry weight: 59 tons wet weight: 268 tons cost: √88,646 part count: 99 payload: 45.5 tons to 75km x 75km orbit payload fraction: 14.51%
Cost per ton to LKO:
without upper stage recovery: √1948 95% average upper stage recovery rate: √770 90% average upper stage recovery rate: √832
Note: when launching, tilt to 5 degree east immediately after lift off. Once the gravity turn has been started set rocket to prograde.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.5.
