This spacecraft design not only looks avante-garde, but keeps future-forward concepts like sustainability and multi-functionality in mind. The MKS-1 SLS prototype by industrial designer Oscar Viñals can serve as a jet on its own, or aid other space rockets and vehicles. This concept aims to help NASA's explorations in a more environmentally friendly and economical way.

The prototype is a launch-support; the MKS-1 SLS would first carry space rockets and vehicles, bringing them closer to the edge of the atmosphere and closer to their destinations. This would lessen the cost of fuel for the rockets and vehicles, since their travel efforts would be diminished.

The design would be made of reusable and cost-efficient materials. It would also consist of an auto-generator that converts heat to electric energy.
