    That Skylon thingy looks promising.
    It lessens the fuel the ship has to carry with it while still in atmosphere, very elegant.
    We might see more of it in the future.

    Took the words right out of my mouth there! :clap:
    If they get this thing to work, great! Until then i'll remain sceptical.
    I hope they remember to leave some spare fuel for their way back. :D
    Also: Looks way cooler than those Space Shuttles, those were sooo 80's... :mrgreen:

    Well, Skylon is still better than the japanese manufacturer of exeskeletons, Cyberdyne. And what do they call their exoskeletons?
    HAL.
