Abstract: The project of “Mercuryplane”—a spacecraft for regular delivery of astronauts to the planet Mercury isconsidered. In the first stage of the flight, with the help of a carrier rocket, equipped with a chemical rocket engine,astronauts are delivered to the international space station ISS. Adesign consisting of an interorbital module and a takeoff-landing capsule hasbeen developed to deliver astronauts fromEarth’s orbit into Mercury’s orbit. The interorbital module is anelectric rocket equipped with 8 superconductor magnetoplasma electric enginesMARS type. The electric power supply for the engines is provided by acollapsible solar panel made of gallium arsenide. The design of thetakeoff-landing capsule has been developed for landing and take-off from thesurface of Mercury. A device has been developed to refuel in Earth’s orbit theelectric rocket engines with nitrogen, and chemical rocket engines with oxygenand hydrogen, which are in liquid state The developed spacecraft is able toregularly deliver three astronauts from Earth orbit to the surface of Mercurywithin 35 days.
