    now this would be a ball busting technology, if it comes through. one more reason why UK is a permenent five. these kind of technologies are only being conceptualized and tested in the west. although India is also catching up slowly. isro dream of having single TSTO would have to deal with these chanllenges.

    Is skylon airborne? How far has it travelled? If this is tested on earth, then we have tested the scramjet engine , a crucial component of the avatar reusable space plane. Unless this is airborne, nothing is spectacular. Americans have similar projects in the pipeline. The AVATAR space-plane is very similar in concept. We need to know more, before showering praises. It really has a long way to go.
