The space rocket is one of the first space-capable vehicles that can be constructed. It only requires resources found on every habitable world, (meaning no eludium). The space rocket has one passenger seat, so it can hold either a passenger or a cargo container (like a crate).
Space rockets use rocket drive propulsion and therefore do not defy gravity like gravity drive vehicles and spacecraft. Important to note is that a space rocket is not fast enough to escape the gravity of some supergiant stars. In this case it is suggested to not leave the local gravity well.
It is aerodynamic and will go much faster in an atmosphere than a fighter or spacecraft without disintegrating due to atmospheric stress.
The second seat in the space rocket enables you to bring a citizen colonist along with you. On the Comm window, press the *Load Crew, Passengers or Troops* button. Offer the seat to a passenger and a citizen will get into the rocket with you.
The second seat can also be used to carry cargo, instead of a passenger. To use the second seat for cargo, get into the space rocket and drop an item (for example a container item, such as a crate) from your inventory. It will be placed in the second seat position. Click on the item to pick it back up. The item can only be picked up if you are inside the space rocket. This works for other multi-seat vehicles too.
