Airbus has been developed a reusable luncher for the spacial application.
After the exploit of SpaceX, airbus present its reusable luncher.
The idea is simple recover the most expensive part of the luncher, the propeller, the propulsion bay and avionics equipment. these element represent 70 to 80% of the luncher.
Airbus choose a other solution than SpaceX, the luncher take off the ground like a old luncher. When it leave the atmosphere the first stage is release, his containe the reusable luncher.
after the separation the first stage eject the reusable luncher and his come in the atmosphere. it procted by the thermical shield after he is transform in a drone and he land like a plane. he have 2 engine with screw folding for the propulsion.
The advantage are more simple and more safe. The land vertical like a SpaceX is to hazardous and very complicated. transforme the luncher on drone it a new way for the reusable luncher.
