SPACE1 ROCKET SAFETY MOTORS
|Typical Engine - Bloodhound Project Link|
In order to achieve motor safety, each rocket motor is used only once. Currently the expanding space-age tourist rocket company has enough motors for 14 upcoming launches.
These motors are not reusable. To achieve the highest safety levels, no rocket motor materials are reused for a reason. Typically, invisible fracture lines and stress failures occur within motor casings, components and cast materials.
This can occur for several reeasons: mechanical in-flight stress, Young's Modulus of flexure, high thermodynamic levels, buffeting, pressure, vibrations encompassing large frequency range, heavy G forces, junction to weightlessness, re-entry stress, jolt stress during parachute deploy (in parachute return vehicles), and other parameters.
Discarding all one-time use components is a welcomed safety feature. This ensures a greater envelop of safety for astronauts in the program.
