From WUT to an international carrier

He was a transferred student at WUT. After his last automotive invention with Ferrari, he came back this time in the space industry. Now he works on projects with The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Meet Adriano Yassin.

He believes that humans should be a multi-planetary species and that the universe is too big to occupy only one planet, colonizing new land means more elements discovered, technology researched and a better understanding of the mechanics of the universe. He is also optimistic about the future of space travel and intercontinental rocket voyage. Last time we wrote about him when he got chance to create sports car rear light for Ferrari, which was covered in this blog. This year he works on a multistage rocket design that’s supposed to allow more cargo and astronauts to be shipped into space per launch using new approach and technologies.

“I started my experience with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) as a member in 2015,” Adriano says. “I published a research paper about aircraft body shapeshifting and it’s ability to change flight characteristics. One year later I wrote the second research paper about non-conventional propulsion systems in space. I have been noticed. At the beginning of this year, I started working on my first prototype design in the space technology PROJECT SANTOS-81 which is a multistage space rocket that will be able to carry more cargo and astronauts per launch which increases space missions and ISS delivery efficiency.”

There are 3 stages of the project. The 1st stage components and engines will fall back to earth and land on three tripod feet via tri-balance parachutes while the external fuel/oxygen tanks of the 2nd stage will be made out of friction-burn materials. They will completely burn upon detaching on their way back to earth while making their way through the outer ozone layer. The cargo bay attached to the 2nd stage is computer guided to ISS docking ports while the 3rd stage capsule ship is big enough to accommodate 6 astronauts and powered by retractable solar panel modules, detachable single rocket engine and a stationary ion thruster in addition to side steering thrusters.

“The project design phase and simulation are finished and it might be seen under construction in 2021 if it stands out among other projects designed and proposed by other prototyping aerospace engineers,” young scientist explains.
