1 AOE 2104 Introduction to Aerospace Engineering Problem Sheet 7 (ans) 31-32 The X-Prize is an incentive award for the first privately supported organization to put an astronaut in space, return him/her to Earth safely and then repeat the mission within 14 days. We have discussed in class the mission profile for Scaled Composites’ entry for this competition. You are to pick any one of the other entries and to describe its mission profile and any other facts that you can find out about the organization and its design. Your report should indicate the name of the organization, an over view of vehicle of vehicles involved, and a detailed mission profile. 33. Make a plot of final velocity over exhaust velocity vs payload fraction for various structural ratios. The range of structural ratios should include 0.2, 0.1, 0.05, 0.01, and the payload ratios should include the range from 0.001 to 1. It would help to plot the payload ratios on a log scale.
