Space1 Programming Rockets

Not everything in the technical world of rockets and computers has numerical code programming. By definition,  instructions written by a programmer in a programming language are often called source code. In the case of Space1 and the Safety Rocket, as well as the Rocket Space Plane RSP, programming is induced non-numerically.

To hard program the RSP for example, a flight path is created by adjusting the plane's dimensions and attributes, as well as flight parameters. This can include free fall and gliding velocity, weight and balance, trim, positions of ailerons and tail, attitude, wind and direction, and additional flight parameters.

For example, a glider can be hardware programmed to take an autonomous spiral glide flight return path to the Earth without the interactions of intelligent man or machine.
