The industrial team that aims to make an astronaut launcher by marrying parts of the US space shuttle and Europe‘s Ariane rocket says it now has a complete system.

To be known as Liberty, the launcher would be sold to Nasa to take its crews to the International Space Station (ISS).

According to the BBC, Utah-based Alliant Techsystems (ATK), whose side boosters got the shuttle off the pad, is leading the project.

The company expects Liberty to launch on its first manned mission in 2015.
