yah, when I was a kid in 2nd grade, I wrote short stories about the space shuttle visiting all the 9 planets. I also was hoping for nasa to outfit the cargo bay with a pressurized habitation module. And having the shuttle dock with a super-service-module, perfect for trekking across the solar system.

And don't forget Haumea

But enough

My idea: launch the spacecrafts and the station spacecrafts with a Falcon X or a Falcon X heavy, with a upper stage (maybe a DM-2 )

Well, i will test now a Energy Rocket using space tugs: Smerch and 2 DM as upper stages. The last DM i will use to do course corrections and insert in the Venusian orbit (although the aerobraking in the Venus atmosphere seems really interesting ) First, i will launch a test module: A Leonardo.

If I knew working with velcro rockets, my life would be easier

Test one: failed hehe

Thereīs a problem with this strategy: if I put 2 DM (one for course correction, another for orbit insert) the ship became too heavy for TVI Burn. With 1 DM and the module, the TVI is ok, but there isnīt enough Delta V for orbit insertion

And I couldnīt do that aerobraking. I passed very near in the atmosphere and nothing

But the sunset in venus orbit was wonderful hehe

I will try the Falcon Heavy

---------- Post added at 10:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:51 AM ----------

One more problem hehe...i will need Delta V for intercept modulesin the venus orbit.
Iīm thinking about to build a little station in the Earth Orbit and send it to Venus in two parts using some upper stage.

Iīm trying aerobrake in venus. Really, is the most economic way but most difficult too. In what vector Have I to burn to avoid be catched by the planet? Iīm trying to escape from Venus Gravity using a Space Tug DM-2

Try experimenting with a probe so you can see which altitude works best for aerobraking.

the best for venus is about 6135k. Is necessary to do any burn during or after? Does Aerobrake MFD works?

6135km? What? The dense atmosphere seems to end at 100km!

6 km? I think that's too low.
