The technologies used to achieve these hypersonic speeds include one or more of the following. With all of these technologies, the speed after the reentry can be higher or lower than the reentry speed.
1- Very low-drag RV design with exotic heat-resistance techniques.
2- RVs with propulsion systems like scramjet engines and/or rocket engines.
3- Variable-geometry RVs.
Great input as always Morpheus. Many Thanks.
This is just going to open up into a long line of questions. .I don't want to bother you. Last one, though. I am venturing to guess you won't have the time to explain each of these technologies in details, so can you please share some links, from where I can read about these technologies? Thanks again.
I'll continue this topic in some future posts.
