Blast from the Past

Hyperion: The Fully Reusable SSTO!

Hyperion was an idea from 1966. The video is a recent creation.

Golly gee, that looks familiar. A comment clued me in:

When Worlds Collide (1951)- Leaving earth
Razor Shark

I saw this movie when I was a kid and it made a huge impression on me. Didn't see it when it came out, that was the year I was born. Must have been a later release, maybe when the Apollo project was ramping up.

Questions. 1. Starts horizontally then turns uphill. How many G?
2. Not enough fuel on board for SSTO? Needs 95% or more.

The problem with this movie is that they took scientists but left the people that could actually build and fix stuff behind.

Remember this is from the era when science was the dominant religion and was going to save us all.
