Skyrora launch review
Soyuz Tested For Single Stage Rocket Skylights
The single stage rocket Skyrora launch is planned to put the Skyrora capsule into orbit around the Earth from a position on the bottom of the fairing where the Soyuz vehicle and the payload can be joined. It has a take off weight of just over seven hundred kilometers and the actual delivery to orbit is planned for approximately the same time. The capsule is approximately the size of an aluminum soda can with a hydrogen fueled engine. With such a small amount of fuel the Skyrora can actually remain within one stage of the Earth's gravity giving it the opportunity to return to earth as a booster stage.
Once in orbit, the Soyuz vehicle will perform its maneuvered landing and the Skyrora capsule will be released from the remaining strap-on structure on the top of the Soyuz. This landing will be accomplished by way of parachute landing allowing the Soyuz to separate from the stricken vehicle and parachute back to the base. All of this is set to occur at approximately ten minutes after liftoff making it the fastest of any space vehicle.

Once the Soyuz lands it will ignite its parachute systems and the Skyrora capsule will then detach from the Soyuz. It will then burn up shortly after landing completing its first mission. The entire process is set to occur within less than one minute making it one of the most speedy orbital launches in history. Although many skeptics have expressed concerns about the vehicle breaking apart during re-entry, the designers of the Skyrora have designed a number of mechanisms that will ensure that the vehicle will not suffer any damages during re-entry.
The Skyrora launch is being carried out by the Energetic Materials Corporation using their new VASIMR (Vibration Intensification Mass Resource). Developed primarily by NASA and the Russian Ministry of Industry, this technology concept will allow the designers of the Skyrora launch to incorporate liquid or gaseous shields to protect the Skyrora capsule during the launch. However, during the flight of the Soyuz will be attached to the top of the rocket and it will continue to fly alongside the Soyuz throughout the flight. Being attached to the top of the vehicle means that the Soyuz itself will not suffer any damage should something go wrong during the flight. The Soyuz will simply slow down as planned and land normally allowing the Skyrora capsule to detach from the rocket and land safely on the ocean, following a successful splashdown.

In terms of design the Soyuz rocket stage is comprised of three distinct parts, which will link up in sequence during the flight. The first part is the lower segment, which will attach to the bottom of the Soyuz rocket. This part is known as the 'semi-trailer' and will allow the Soyuz capsule to be rolled out to the launch pad and erected for its final approach to the launch site. The semi-trailer is made up of an escape motor which will activate once attached to the Soyuz and propel it away from the launch area. The main landing gear - the semi-trailer's legs - are then fitted into place on the bottom of the Soyuz and used to tow the main lander away from the rocket.
The third and final part to the Soyuz single-stage launch vehicle is the fairing stage. Fairings are made of a fairing skirt which is stretched around the vehicle and will protect it during the flight. This skirt will also be deployed at the beginning of the mission to help protect the vehicle during powered flight. Once deployed, this skirt will then separate from the Soyuz and parachute into a holding position on the ocean.
