Reentry Shape

Drawbacks and Problems

Extra Drag

Because we are launching the SSTT from 60,000 feet, we don't need to have a very aerodynamic vehicle; drag is not a big problem. On reentry drag is good because it slows you down faster. We might even want to have "spoilers" (like automobile racers use) on the tail fins of this rocket. Or the SSTT could come in tail first and have some drag device like TGV Rockets does.
