(Science) Space Planes!

Very interesting story about the possibility of the 'Spaceplane' program that's been rumoured for the last 20+ years having been recently shelved. The whole affair was incredibly hush-hush by alla ccounts but bits leaked over the years. Now the program is believed to have been stopped altogether Aviation Week & Space Technology have decided to publish all they heard about it so the breakthrough doesn't simply disappear into some filing cabinet under the Pentagon (or somewhere...).

Thanks to autopope for the link.
