I don’t know what the future really holds for space flight but this looks pretty darn convincing that this is a strong possibility. Read for yourself. Finally, it feels like we will be able to peel ourselves out of mesolithic period of space flight and onto something that evens the score with those pesky aliens who occupy our planet like it’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, with their all access passes to our skies. Okay, don’t get me started. 🙂 There are a ton of great concept photos in this article. It’s nice to think that human ingenuity isn’t dead but simply test firing the next prototype.
As a scifi writer I love to jump off from where science says we are now or could be in the near future and contribute to the collective thought of what-might-be. This kind of accomplishment, the horizontal take off for a spaceship that is reusable and goes deeper into space than all other spaceships before it, is perspective changing. Authors, time to start writing those planet colonization stories!
Congrats Earthlings, it’s about time you made the leap to interplanetary space travel.
