    Welcome to the Spacefleet Association

    This Spacefleet Association site is for people who are fascinated by astronomy, space technology and engineering, space exploration, commercial use and many other related topics. The site has an archive of space news stories going back 14 years. We also have our very own space launch project.

     SpaceX plan in earnest for Interplanetary Transport System

    Space Launch
    Elon Musk, the CEO and founder of SpaceX, the successful USA-based space launch company, announced recently, at the International Astronautical Congress, in Adelaide, Australia, that SpaceX now plans to transition to a reusable, two-stage, multipurpose super-heavy-lift launcher that not only can take on the satellite delivery and station resupply flights that keep SpaceX financially viable, but also fly crews and cargo to the Moon and Mars. The system also could be used for suborbital, point-to-point travel between destinations on Earth.

     Ready to launch EARL-D4 and Dart

    The EARL ProjectThe EARL-D4 sub-scale rocket-powered UAV/boost glide vehicle is ready to launch, and our sub-scale space dart vehicle is nearly ready. We now have a permit from the Romanian Ministry of Defence, to test-fly these vehicles at a military range in Romania. the first flights could occur later, this month (October), if our paperwork is deemed to be all in order and the weather is kind to us..

     Earth-sized planet orbits brown dwarf

    Extra-Solar PlanetsAn Earth-sized planet has been discovered in orbit around a small, cool star, but at the Sun-Earth distance. Thus, its surface must be very cold. If the planet has as much water as the Earth, it will be an ice-ball, but this cannot be determined from the observations.

     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.
