The Hesperus Starship.

Nothing fancy here and by sticking to my typical and very Von Braunian designs, I know that I am also staying within the realm of believability and realism. And if NASA or SPACEX ever needed a concept artist, "HELLO GUYS! I'M RIGHT HERE!"

This is a large craft with specific design functionality. Two Gravity Wheels that counter rotate to abate the Dzhanibekov Effect or Tennis Racket Theorum (Google it or YouTube it for demos of this) and the wheels are large radiused so that they can spin at the correct speed to generate 1G with minimal Coriolis Effect issues...Nobody wants to pee sideways. lol

The big red tank at the aft section is all fuel. Methalox. Methane and Liquid Oxygen with just a touch of helium to keep the pressure against the nozzles of the rocket engines in a zero G environment. Until we can create Fusion Drive propulsion systems, the ol' standbys of quick bursts for speed and trajectory settings will rue the day.
