The physics of spaceflight are such that multiple rocket stages are typically required to achieve the desired orbit. Expendable launch vehicles are designed for one-time use, with boosters that usually separate from their payload and disintegrate during atmospheric reentry or on contact with the ground. In contrast, reusable launch vehicle boosters are designed to be recovered intact and launched again. The Falcon 9 is an example reusable launch vehicle. Launchpads can be located on land spaceport , on a fixed ocean platform San Marco , on a mobile ocean platform Sea Launch , and on a submarine.
Launch vehicles can also be launched from the air. A launch vehicle will start off with its payload at some location on the surface of the Earth. To reach orbit, the vehicle must travel vertically to leave the atmosphere and horizontally to prevent re-contacting the ground. The required velocity varies depending on the orbit but will always be extreme when compared to velocities encountered in normal life.
Launch vehicles provide varying degrees of performance. For example, a satellite bound for Geostationary orbit GEO can either be directly inserted by the upper stage of the launch vehicle or launched to a geostationary transfer orbit GTO. A direct insertion places greater demands on the launch vehicle, while GTO is more demanding of the spacecraft.
Once in orbit, launch vehicle upper stages and satellites can have overlapping capabilities, although upper stages tend to have orbital lifetimes measured in hours or days while spacecraft can last decades.
Distributed launch involves the accomplishment of a goal with multiple spacecraft and launches. An assembly of modules, such as the International Space Station , can be constructed, or in-space propellant transfer conducted to greatly increase the delta-V capabilities of a given stage.

For example, a rocket with engine size A would require a ' x ' launch area. The instructions on your model rocket launch kit should specify what size engine and launch area you need. Choose a central location within the launch site for the launch system. Make sure all spectators are at a safe distance away from the launch system. It is also a good idea to position several people to act as trackers as rockets can launch very high and fast, making them difficult to track down once they make landing.
Prepare the model rocket launch system. A model rocket launch system consists of two things: a launch pad and a launch controller. Most rocket launch systems require some assembly. You should assemble the rocket launch system before you begin to assemble the model rocket itself. Most launch pads consist of several parts: a leg platform to provide stability on uneven ground, a launch rod to control the angle of the model rocket at launching, and a deflector plate to protect the launch pad from being damaged by the rocket engine when it is ignited.
Follow the instructions provided with the kit or launch pad to assemble these properly. There are several types of launch pads, and you should always the appropriate one for your type of model rocket.
The instructions for your model rocket or kit will tell you which type is required. Some of these connect to an external battery to provide this voltage. This controller will be connected to the model rocket later via wire and clips. Prepare the rocket for launching. You will need a rocket body and nose cap, recovery wadding, the recovery system, an igniter, the model rocket engine, and engine mount. Recovery wadding is a type of flame resistant material that will protect the model rocket from flames during the ejection of the model rocket engine.
Without the wadding, the parachute or recovery system will melt. Be sure not to pack this material too tight or the recovery system may not eject properly during launch. Third, place the nose cone back onto the rocket body. Fourth, install the igniter into the model rocket engine, as per the instructions in your kit or with the igniter.
The model rocket engine is what powers the flight of the rocket. In many cases, this will be a system of hooks inside the rocket tube or a separate kit for assembly will be included.
Be sure to check your instructions with your model rocket kit to see what is required for assembling the engine mount. Part 2 of Do a quick safety check. Make sure all spectators are at a safe distance away from the launch pad and your tracers are in position to find the rocket once it lands.
Also, check again for any flammable debris or other obstructions to the rocket's trajectory. Slide the model rocket onto the launch rod. First, disconnect the safety cap off of the launch rod and slide the rocket on. The rod should go through a cylindrical piece on the side of the rocket called the launch lug. The rocket should rest on the deflector plate of the launch pad.Rocket Launch (Panoram partial Recall version) () Rocket Launch (LUCA Quirky version) () Earth Polar Axis () Review: While there's something undeniably contemporary about Odeon's seriously psychedelic "Rocket Launch" - particularly the druggy, Weatherall-pleasing arpeggio lines, wayward guitars and densely-layered feel - it also.
