    Welcome to the Spacefleet Association

    The Association has been set up to support the Spacefleet Project, to build a re-usable space vehicle, which will be able to take payloads into sub-orbital space and then glide back from space to a soft landing. Larger versions could put satellites into orbit (and bring them back). If you are interested in the project, please take a look at it here and send an email requesting membership of this site to admin@spacefleet.org.uk.

     Site changes

    SpacefleetIt is going to be necessary to overhaul this web site completely. This will occur at some time in the next few months, for a much-improved experience - we promise!

     Seven Earths: One Sun

    Extra-Solar PlanetsNASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star. Three of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone, the area around the parent star where a rocky planet is most likely to have liquid water.

    The discovery sets a new record for greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system. All of these seven planets could have liquid water -- key to life as we know it -- under the right atmospheric conditions, but the chances are highest with the three in the habitable zone.

     Mars North Pole

    MarsESA has published a picture of the North Pole of Mars, from pictures built up from imagery taken over several years, to produce a complete picture of the North Polar region.

    The ice cap is a permanent fixture, but in the winter season – as it is now in early 2017 – temperatures are cold enough for around 30 percent of the carbon dioxide in the planet’s atmosphere to precipitate onto the cap, adding a seasonal layer up to a metre thick. During the warmer summer months most of the carbon dioxide ice turns directly into gas and escapes into the atmosphere, leaving behind the water-ice layers.

     Waiting for progress

    The EARL ProjectThe EARL-D4 has been ready to fly on its first test flight since February. We are waiting for a permit from the Romanian Civil Aviation Authority, which we hope to receive in a few weeks' time. We should then be able to do the series of four test flights next Spring.
