Getting to space (Advanced Rocketry)
|This article is a work-in-progress.|
It may be finished in the near future, check its history to see previous edits.
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.

Processing machines[edit | edit source]
Several processing machines are required for further crafts, more specifically
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:
Precision Assembler, which greatly reduces the cost of components like
Control Circuit Boards
Rolling Machine, which greatly reduces the cost of metal plates and is required to make
Lathe, which reduces the cost of metal rods (optional)
Cutting Machine, which cuts wood more efficiently
Crystallizer, which is used to craft
Silicon Ingots in the
Electric Arc Furnace, turn some of them into
Silicon Ingots and
Silicon Boules in the

Making Rocket Fuel[edit | edit source]
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:
- Crafting one (
Space Suit Chest-Piece,
Space Suit Legging and
- Enchanting a set of armor with Airtight Seal in the
Chemical Reactor to substitute it.
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.
