There happen to be several questions out here on DIY spacecraft/launch-systems ... so I figure this question should be the next that comes to mind
Unless one happens to be on the craft, and well-trained in handling spacecraft at the extremely large velocities a launch vehicle may attain - there may be a ramp-up curve, or un-manned launch. Regardless such probably require specialized education, and processing power (firm-ware & wet-ware, both).
Assuming it becomes possible for a person to put together a spacecraft on their own,
- Can a person control an unmanned spacecraft on their own?
- Is a single person on ground in communication with a manned spacecraft enough?
- What is the minimum team size required to control an unmanned spacecraft from launch through orbit? What about a manned spacecraft?
- Are there any regulations either from NAR, or NASA that define a lower-limit & profiles for mission control of any rocket/space launch?
