Glad someone else is stepping up to the plate. Development on such equipment could easily lead to civilian hypersonic aircraft, getting rid of 15 hour flights to Australia and such. Also sparks research on better ways of space travel, as the scramjet is closer to being space capable than a traditional jet engine.

Please explain for the unwashed masses how a scramjet is closer to being space capable? Doesnt it require a funneled input of compressed gas to function... gas that I assume is not too abundant in the vacuum of space?

Ya'll hear about the geometer who went to the beach to catch some rays and became a tangent ?

Working...
