Retrieved Duffy, James P Shayler, David J Women in Space - Following Valentina. In June and February , Dr. This led to his being asked by the German High Command to build a secret aerospace research institute in Trauen to research and build his "Silverbird", a manned, winged vehicle that could reach orbit. The fuselage was flattened, which helped create lift and the wings were short and wedge shaped.
There was a horizontal tail surface located at the extreme aft end of the fuselage, which had a small fin on each end. The fuel was carried in two large tanks, one on each side of the fuselage, running from the wings aft. Oxygen tanks were located one on each side of the fuselage, located forward of the wings. There was a huge rocket engine of tons thrust mounted in the fuselage rear, and was flanked by two auxiliary rocket engines.
The pilot sat in a pressurized cockpit in the forward fuselage, and a tricycle undercarriage was fitted for a gliding landing. A central bomb bay held one kg lb free-falling bomb, and no defensive armament was fitted. The empty weight was to be approximately kg lbs. An interesting flight profile was envisioned for the "Silverbird". It was to be propelled down a 3 km 1. After taking off at a 30 degree angle and reaching an altitude of 1. As the aircraft accelerated and descended under the pull of gravity, it would then hit the denser air at about 40 km 25 miles and 'skip' back up as a stone does when skipped along water.
This also had the added benefit of cooling the aircraft after the intense frictional heating encountered when the denser air was reached. The skips would gradually be decreased until the aircraft would glide back to a normal landing using its conventional tricycle landing gear, after covering approximately km miles.
The final test facilities for full-scale rocket engine tests were being built when Russia was invaded in June All futuristic programs were canceled due to the need to concentrate on proven designs.
Although the Luftwaffe did its best to stop Dr. Indeed, post-war analysis of the Silverbird design uncovered a mistake in the calculation of the effect of aerodynamic heating during re-entry - in fact had the Silverbird design ever made it into orbit it would almost certainly had burned up during re-entry. After the war, he was asked to work along with mathematician Irene Bredt for the French Air Ministry, where in a bizarre plot, he was almost kidnapped by Stalin, who recognized the value of the Amerika Bomber.
His sort of fantastical approach to science was extremely popular with engineers and scientists in Germany, sometimes producing amazing technology; other times wasting incredible amounts of resources in otherwise obvious pipedreams.
The Amerika Bomber, had it ever passed the prototyping stage, would have been propelled into the air by a massive ton thrust liquid fuel rocket. The Amerika Bomber was to be mounted on a monorail dolly that also mounted the booster unit. The dolly would have shot down a three kilometer long angled rail in a mere 11 seconds and lifted the Amerika Bomber into the sky roughly a mile.
At this point the aircraft's internal rocket thruster would have activated and lifted the plane to a low-orbit altitude of kilometers and a speed of 22,kph. The plane could have theoretically reached any location on the planet in under an hour and dropped a single 8,lb bomb.
