Re: If You Could Re-Imagine the Phoenix?

I have indeed been hinting at WW3; technologically speaking it wouldn't be a problem no, but the war would ravage a lot ofthe infrastructure needed to launch and/or support a space station.

Furthermore, I'm not saying that a Titan should launch a DY-100, but more drawing the comparison between a nuclear warhead, which weighs a certain amount, versus an experimental warpship, which would weigh considerably more than a nuclear warhead. In that light a Titan rocket would not have enough fuel to get it into higher atmosphere where the ship could decouple itself from the exhausted rocket and warp off without falling back to earth
