Literally out of this world!

A few years ago, space tourism was utterly science fiction. But with private operations already underway and queues of wealthy travelers lining up, this ultimate thrill-seeker’s adventure has become a reality. The XLDron M Gravity concept sheds light on what we might expect from our future spacecraft. The dual vehicle design consists of a shuttle and “rocket-plane” that work in tandem to carry 4 crew and 10 tourists beyond the reaches of our atmosphere before gliding home. 

Designer: Oscar Viñals

    In what way is this different from Virgin Galactic? (except from the completely fantastical sci-fi design of this vehicle, compared to the real world and actually flying SpaceShip One/White Knight combination?)

    And I don’t even find the textures/modeling particularly well done in these drawings…

    Are the front windows of that plane supposed to be different colors in the different images?

    LOL: costs only $150 million.

    Upscale rocket plane to carry 50 into Space & mother plane for dual role: Cargo & passenger mix for Earth flights alone.
    Be awesome.
    R&D in CA & mass produce.
    Love your work < Oscar

    This design looks great!!!
    Good and fresh ideas, that’s what we need, start mass producing this.
    Well done Oscar

    To many things wrong with this design!
    First the aerodynamics of both mothership & spaceship
    together would cause disturbance of each other.

    The spaceships dynamics aren’t stable & you can forget about
    reentre?

    This gives us a glimpse onto the future of flight? Try Virgin’s a bonafide proven, vehicle. But these are nice renderings too, for a movie or something.

    Wing design would not work with current shape. And how can you put a price on a mere concept

  • Rob360 says:

    How is this not a direct rip off of the Spaceship one/two and white knight with some ridiculous wing designs?
