Space1 Space Station V2

Approximation - Gartrell Research Vessel
Space1 has a second space station design, the Space Station V2.

— the future of Space1 series —

The primary difference between the first V1 and the V2 is how the Delta Wing Flyer is handled and the introduction of space station solar panels doubling as rocket fins.

The rocket body is slowly rotated for orientating the station relative to the sun for power to activate the solar panels in space, and to distribute heat - one side being approximated +250 degrees F. and the other side -250 deg. F.

Space Station V2 has an Orion-type capsule at the top to serve as a space bridge for flight control, and houses three or more astronauts and artificial intelligence humanoid life forms.

AI humanoids will help control the habitat in space and perform specialized and routine duties such as monitoring and correction of craft rotation schedules, maintenance of the hydroponics bay, and as companions to long space missions.

It's possible the station will include a greenhouse hydroponics section to grow food and high oxygen plants to assist in food supplements, oxygen creation and CO2 absorption.

SSV2 has a large payload section housing one Delta Wing Flyer. The flyer is released and the empty payload section converts into a space station.

The model illustration is from the Gartrell Deep Space Research Vessel Flying Rocket, and only approximates the actual design.

Rings are modeled to represent rotation habitation rings. Apparently solar panels exist on both sides of the representative solar fins. If the solar fins are in this form (+) at least one panel will always face the sun during rotation.
