Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. SERV, short for Single-stage Earth-orbital Reusable Vehicle, was a proposed space launch system designed by Chrysler's Space Division for the Space Shuttle project. SERV was a single-stage to orbit spacecraft that took off from the existing Saturn V complexes and landed vertically at Kennedy for re-use. SERV looked like a greatly expanded Apollo capsule, with an empty central core used to carry up 125,000 lb of cargo. A separate spaceplane, MURP, could be carried on top of the vehicle. SERV was, however, so radically different than the two-stage spaceplanes that almost every other competitor entered into the Shuttle development process that it was never seriously considered for the shuttle program. Note that the name "SERV" was also used by an entirely unrelated NASA project, the "Space Emergency Re-entry Vehicle."show more
