Gyrfalcon

The Gyrfalcon is an almost fully reusable two-stage rocket designed by Sem Van Der Vegte (Founder/CEO of NAXC). The Gyrfalcon is designed to transport satellites, cargo and crews into space, the Gyrfalcon is also able to send people to the moon or put satellite into space that orbit Mars but that's not gonna be the main focus for the Gyrfalcon. NAXC wants to keep the space clean and that's the reason why almost everything of the rocket is reusable including the fairing. Reusing rocket parts is also a lot cheaper than just throwing them into space and build new part for every single rocket launch.

NAXC is also working on a crew/cargo capsule, the Pegasus. With the Pegasus, NAXC wants to send people and cargo to the International Space Station. After each mission the Pegasus will land back on Earth, no matter if there's a crew on board or not. The pegasus will land safely back on earth with boosters just like the Gyrfalcon, but of course it will still have a parachute onboard in case something goes wrong with the boosters.
