    Only the second stage booster is not reusable...all others are. Or would be.

    This is very lite and small but all numbers add up nicely.

    This can speed up into 11.1 km/s speed with chemical rockets and then an additional 219 km/s with Xenon ( 500 kg ).

    Let's Do Some Rocketry !?

    I have calculated several interesting scenarios and recently found out that if you have Xenon and an MPDT ( magnetoplasmadynamic thruster ) drive you can actually reach the famous " ludicrous" speed.

    For this 3rd stage ( or after the third stage ) it can accelerate to an almost 1 000 000 km/h speed ( with no fuel to brake ). It needs also 200 m2 solar panels ( origami like in the fuse ).
