Welcome to The Mars Society - To Explore and Settle the Next World.  Ohio Chapter

A Look At SpaceShipOne Landing At
Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio.


SpaceShipOne with White Knight - in shadow.

SpaceShipOne is ONLY 6,800 pounds when full of fuel (3,000 pounds empty - or only as much as a compact car)...the mothership (White Knight) is only 6,000 pounds...for a total that is LESS than 13,000 pounds with a FULL payload! Absolutely INCREDIBLE when you COMPARE it with conventional metallic spacecraft! Its hard to imagine the incredible power to weight ratio for a composite spacecraft, if you used NASA class rocket power. Read MORE about it in the link provided nearby.
