  Nova rocket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nova was a series of proposed rocket designs, originally as NASA's first large launchers for missions similar to the Saturn V that entered production, and later as larger follow-ons to the Saturn V intended for missions to Mars.
Nova was still targeting the direct ascent approach, which required the most lift capacity.
The main determinant in selecting the Saturn over the Nova was that the Saturn C-5 could be built in an existing factory outside New Orleans, later known as the Michoud Assembly Facility, while the larger diameter Nova would need new factories to be built.

 Manic Nova
The Chevy 2 Nova was the name for the upper end model of Chevy 2 that included the V8 and the sport trim.
To this day these Novas retain extreme popularity, and seeing as they were only made for these 2 years, they fetch quite a price if they are in good condition.
The only thing that allowed the nova to stay as a muscle car was the tremendous power to weight ratio provided by the 350, or the 396, with both putting out enough horsepower to melt the tires at a kick of the throttle.

The rocket split in two as planned and the capsule - the top bit where Steve will be when he attempts his manned flight - brought down safely by parachute.
Nova was Steve's fifth launch at Morecambe Bay and possibly his last in the UK.
He added that should the trials go well, he aims to launch himself, the Nova pod and the Nova rocket, 30,000 feet into space by 2004, which will then pave the way for their three-man launch and the $10m X-prize for the first private manned rocket flight.

 NOVA | Transcripts | To the Moon | PBS
The real issue about the NOVA Rocket is the question is could you build it, and if you did have a problem with it, it could really destroy a good part of the Cape Kennedy at the time, because it was such a massive amount of propellant.
Thirty years later, NOVA joins Borman, Lovell, and Anders at a reunion in Chicago - a chance to look back on the perilous journey that was Apollo 8, and to recall the mysterious way it began.
MAX FAGET: It had a huge rocket, the size of the Saturn, with many more engines on it than the Saturn, which they were planning to go to the moon with.

 Enchanted Rendezvous
The immediate advantage of Earth-orbit rendezvous, as von Braun clearly pointed out, was that it required a pair of less powerful rockets that were already nearing the end of their development—in other words, twice as many of his early Saturns.
A massive rocket, roughly the size of a battleship, would be fired directly to the Moon, land, and then blast off for home directly from the lunar surface.
Any single big rocket, such as Nova, that had to carry and lift all the fuel necessary for leaving the Earth's gravity, braking against the Moon's gravity as well as leaving it, and braking back down into the Earth's gravity again was not the most practical, especially if the mission must be accomplished soon.

The Rocket Engine Test Facility (RETF) made a number of significant contributions to the U.S. aerospace industry in the area of rocket-engine propulsion, primarily with their development of the technology required to use high-energy liquid propellants, such as liquid hydrogen, as rocket-engine fuel.
The M-1 was an upper-stage hydrogen engine for the Nova rocket, a launch vehicle that would be more powerful than that for the Saturn rocket, and which was planned as a launch vehicle for sending a manned mission to the moon,.
However, the Nova rocket was kept on the drawing board for future missions beyond the moon.

 Starchaser To Unveil UK's Most Powerful Rocket Engine
The Churchill Mk3 is the latest rocket engine to be developed by Starchaser, and with a design thrust of 147,000 Newtons (33,000lbs) it will qualify as the largest engine of its kind to have been built in the UK since the British government scrapped the national space programme more than 30 years ago.
Starchaser's programme includes the development of a reusable sounding rocket with enhanced performance to that of the recently retired British built Skylark which carried out it's final mission on 2 May 2005.
Starchaser's rocket engine together with the record breaking Nova rocket ship, all built in Britain, will be on display at the Newton building to mark the opening of the new Joule Physics Laboratory at Salford University by Professor Sir John Enderby, president of the Institute of Physics.

An aerospike engine is basicly based on an inside-out rocket nozzle; instead of expanding within a rocket nozzle, the rocket flame expands around a compression area called the "aerospike." The X-33's engines are "linear aerospikes" because they are more like flat surfaces than like a circular "spike."
Aerospike technology has been on the fringes of rocket development throughout the space program and, for the time being, it seems likely to stay there.
The bottom of the craft is a specially curved reflector which focuses the laser light into a central point causing a superheating of the air at that point and an explosive thrust similar to the thrust generated by a rocket engine.
