This guide is adapted from Advanced Rocketry's official Getting to Space guide.

Reaching space is an essential part of progressing through Advanced Rocketry, as nearly all advanced features of the mod require either launching rockets or having launched at least one.

This guide will guide you until you can launch a rocket and safely land on Luna.

Plates[edit | edit source]

Nearly all machines in Advanced Rocketry require metal plates in some of their crafting recipes. These can be made using the
Small Plate Presser.

Place it one block above a block of
Obsidian, put the input you want to process between the two and give the Presser a redstone pulse in order to craft. This allows crushing one metal ore into two dusts, and can turn a block of metal into 4 corresponding plates.

You can also craft an
Holo-Projector, which greatly simplifies building the various multiblocks that the mod requires.

Electric Arc Furnace[edit | edit source]

The first Redstone Flux powered machine to be crafted is the
Electric Arc Furnace. It also requires a 5x5x5 multiblock alongside it, which can be seen in its wiki page or with the
Holo-Projector.

This allows you to craft Steel, Silicon Ingots and obtain useable Titanium ingots, all of which are required for further crafts.

Processing machines[edit | edit source]

Several processing machines are required for further crafts, more specifically
Basic and
Advanced Circuit. Although they can be built in any order, some of them can greatly reduce the cost of several often used components.

Those machines are:

In order to make
Basic or
Advanced Circuits, the complete crafting chain is:

Making Rocket Fuel[edit | edit source]

Now that you have access to
Basic Circuits, you can now craft the required machines to make Rocket Fuel, which is required to launch the rocket. Make an
Electrolyser and a
Chemical Reactor.

The former turns Water into Oxygen and Hydrogen, the latter can either enchant armor with Airtight Seal or turn both of those gases into useable Rocket Fuel. You will also need a bit of Oxygen on the side in order to breath on Luna.

Space Suit[edit | edit source]

There are two ways of making a space suit:

It is possible to mix both methods and have part space suit and part enchanted armor.

Several modules can be inserted into space suit armor pieces in a
Suit Workstation. Up to two
Pressure Tanks of any kind can be inserted in the
Space Suit Chest-Piece, which is required in order to insert Oxygen in it.

Once an enchanted chestplate is made or tanks are inserted in the space suit chestplate, it can then be filled with Oxygen. To do so, craft a Gas Charge Pad, fill it with Oxygen and stand on it while wearing the armor piece.
