Episode 434: Skylon with SABRE - Single Stage to Orbit

We interview Reaction Engines LTD Mark Hempsell about the SABRE (Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine). This is a breakthrough rocket engine in aerospace technology that can operate in both air-breathing and rocket modes. Join us as we talk about the SABRE rocket engine, the Skylon Spaceplane (runway to orbit) and LAPCAT (Mach 5 cruise Brussels to Sydney in 4.6 hours).

Plan on spending some time looking over the Reaction Engines web site for an extensive download list of images, video's and technical documents.
