41 Spaceship Fuel and Storage The VG spaceship uses a relatively inert, almost asphalt-like material as the solid fuel. Flash point is just over 400 degrees F, not much of a safety concern. VG and N.M. Fire Marshal will be meeting to resolve any potential problems. When you add the oxidizer (nitrous oxide) and an ignition source, then you get a spectacular reaction. Current plan (NMSA and VG) would have the solid fuel rocket motor mounted to the spacecraft inside the hangar (at full operation, likely no more than 3-4 in the hangar at a time). The spaceship mated to the carrier plane, would then be rolled out onto the apron, to a designated fueling area at a yet undetermined distance from the building, where both the jet-a fuel for the carrier plane and the nitrous oxide for the spaceship would be loaded. The combined craft would then taxi to the astronaut loading point, load up, and head to the runway for takeoff. If there is some reason to abort, for safety reasons, standard operating procedures would keep the techs or pilots from returning the combined craft back to the hangar, fully fueled.
