And I think I made that clear. A ship that can take off, go to another planet and land, and come back again. Not going to happen.
It seems that NASA thought that the bad design was good enough for the HLS Moon landings. The problem with the shuttle was it was never properly reusable unlike the Starship design. The shuttle system would be better described as partly refurbishable at hideous cost.They said it was underpowered. It's made out of stainless steel. Weight to power ratio. When we launched the Shuttle into space, it had booster rockets. And bigger engines.
