A spacecraft such as a fly back booster or a reusable launch vehicle, or an aerospace plane has a fuselage and a set of scissors wings consisting of two main wings. Both of the main wings are rotatably mounted on the fuselage and can be yawed at opposite directions. If the spacecraft is launched vertically, both of its main wings can be yawed to be generally parallel with its fuselage so that it can connect with other vehicle or vehicles to form different launch configurations. When the spacecraft or aerospace plane is flying in the air, landing, or taki...
1. An aerospace apparatus for providing thrust to power a transportation system to fly in an air environment toward orbit, or for flying from an air environment to orbit, said aerospace apparatus comprising: (a) a fuselage, and (b) two wing means for generating aerodynamic lift, and (c) each of said two wing means having a left-side wing and a right-side wing, and (d) at least one pivot means for rotatable installing said two wing means on said fuselage, and (e) at least one yawing means for yawing said two wing means about said pivot means...
