Welcome to the team.

Officially formed after the Roswell Incident of 1947 by Johnathon Derringer, Dead Orbit's goal is to explore the stars beyond our own.

The solar neighborhood is resource rich and will benefit earth greatly, and with our rocket designs, we as humans will be walking among the stars.

The Dragon 7 rocket is a rocket designed to put satellites and the Phoenix pod into space safely and efficiently. It is the first orbital spacecraft capable of reflight. This will pave the way to humans being able to colonize other planets.

The Dragon 7's simple two-stage design was made for minimum separate events, and with nine first-stage engines it can complete missions even if one or two engines need to be shut down.

Dragon 7 made history in 2016 when it delivered the Phoenix pod to rendezvous with the International Space Station. This made Dead Orbit the first commercial company to visit the station. Since then it has completed numerous trips to space, putting satellites to orbit and delivering/retrieving cargo from different space stations. The Dragon 7 as well as the Phoenix pod is just a glimpse into the future of space travel.

The Phoenix Pod is a free-flying spacecraft designed to deliver cargo and passengers alike to orbiting destinations such as the ISS and the soon-to-be Albatross. It is the only spacecraft capable of returning and delivering large amounts of cargo. It currently regularly shuttles humans and cargo to and from the International Space Station. The first demonstration flight under NASA's Commercial Crew Program launched on March 7th, 2017 at 1:15 a.m. ET. The Phoenix Pod successfully docked with the space station ahead of schedule at 4:31 a.m. ET on March 8th, 2017, becoming the first American spacecraft in history to autonomously dock with the International Space Station.

The Phoenix Pod is capable of carrying 8 passengers to and from Earth orbit, and even further. The pressurized cabin is designed to carry both people and atmosphere-needing cargo such as plants. Near the base of the capsule and covered by the nose cone are the Wing thrusters, which make the capsule capable of orbital maneuvering.

The Phoenix Pod's bottom half serves as support for the upper-half of the craft, as well as unpressurized cargo space. It remains attached until shortly before entry into an atmosphere where it is disconnected to deploy the heat shield for the upper half.

The Dragon Supra is the most powerful rocket made by man. Capable of lifting up to 150 metric tons (nearly 330,000 pounds) into orbit, the Dragon Supra can lift more then the legendary Saturn V rocket at nearly half the cost. The Dragon Supra draws on the reliable design of the Dragon 7.

Utilizing four Dragon 7 first-stage boosters, the Dragon Supra has 63 engines to help lift it into orbit with more then 7 million pounds of thrust at liftoff. Not even the Saturn V, which last flew in 1973, can compare to this beast of a rocket. The Dragon Supra will carry humanity into the solar system, enabling trips to Saturn to take place in the near future.

1. Begin work on Albatross Station
2. Finish Shuttle
3. Complete a flyby of the moon
4. Begin Moon Base
5. Colonize the Moon

Our future begins around other stars!
