Look! Up in the sky! It's a plane! No... it's a spaceplane!

Getting to space is expensive, both in time and in money. The concept of a spaceplane isn't new, but the Skylon's engine -- well, proposed engine -- is a step in the right direction. And while I really want to see a video of it in action, I'm forced to only share the cool picture within the story itself.

Keep your eye on Reaction Engine. What they're developing could pave the way for easier access to LEO, putting the reality of commercial space activities that much closer to the rest of us.
