NASA: We like to test out our top scientists with our lower scientists with tests such as this, where the top scientists have to use steam technology to achieve the same amount of lift to space, while the lower level teams can use more of what is commonly referred to as rocket technology with more advanced fusion. Steam technology had to take in water as the fuel and steam as the output, while the lower level teams could use anything as fuel.
NASA Command Center: Rocket is good on launch, all inner parts rotating along with air flow with no drag or resistance. It is as if we are just touching the clouds ladies and gentlemen, now lets try to pull.
They said as the inner air turbines kicked in, going perfectly with the flow of the air around and in the rocket. They used this time to calculate the rockets air flow perfectly without the interference of the air system being hooked up into the main generator of the rocket yet.
But as they turned on the air system it began to grab air, pulling itself to greater heights, the air turbines moving so fast that they rotated faster then the rocket engine could pull in air, so when they spun they only added thrust upwards because they pushed the air down faster then it could be pulled in, and pulled more oxygen into the steam engines main rocket portion that actually needed it the oxygen as fuel, before switching back to full steam in the next nozzle portion.
The system was powered by a liquid hydrogen and oxygen steam engine, that powered the entire rocket using the fuel that use to be used to propel it. These tanks where kept full and trickle fed by the creation of more liquid oxygen and hydrogen in the system which also fed the main rocket engine. After escaping the atmosphere, it was far easier for the system to turn the water reserves which where more pressurizable then things such as liquid hydrogen and oxygen which where explosive. This used the steam version which transferred water reserves to steam and back, the newer versions would focus on specific fusion and fission reactions so water engines would be outdated however fusion oxygen and hydrogen engines combined with steam would an upgrade of technology forward in time, so keeping the material grouped in its elemental form would be the best choice to keep your fuel reserves in the future.
If NASA cannot admit all of its top secret technology, then we shall compete with our whee poof engineers and scientists in the only way we can, because using the latest fusion fission technology we can always beat the lower level scientists and engineers. So we use steam technology, they use all the fission and fusion technology they have. It is either that or don’t compete with our whee poof engineers and scientists.
So the steam rocket would evolve into a rocket that used massive amounts of water pulled through out the system. So on its ground dynamo inside the system would be plants and other life that pulled up a massive amount of water. So trees with spouts on them, or other life. Water to steam also shows off the need to study different molecule combinations of systems and engineering projects not just element reactors and systems. What are all the molecule to element reactions? Get them all combined into one rocket, so the dynamo core center powering the rocket ship can funnel and element type in small amounts together to the rocket engine, so if you could figure out a reaction for all elements up the periodic table into molecules and back into elements such as steam is, then add it into one rocket engine combined with one dynamo that has those elements funneling its dynamo engines that it can then sort out and use for the ship in different ways other then just fuel to move the ship.
