Del Rey Station - Rocket

Del Rey Station - Rocket by Haxus

This old-school SciFi wheel-shaped space station is dedicated to Lester Del Rey. His books were an inspiration to me. His stories always seemed to depict people living and working in space. More than one book incorporated a wheel shaped station such as this.

Using only rocket drives, this variation makes a good starter station when gravity drive technology is not yet available. A gravity driven variant is available.

This space station design is distributed in the file DelReyStation-Rocket.SoH.
