This engine is a true potential game changer as far as known propulsion is concerned. It could become the engine that powers the first jet/shuttle hybrid aircraft.
It will dramatically decrease the cost of putting payloads in orbit, and decrease flight times between different parts of the world.
Im just hoping it stays uk based and we develop the infrastructure to support it here. It would provide a massive economic boost to remote areas of the UK. We are already one of the world's top manufacturers of satellites for commercial use, so offering both the tech to both launch and produce satellites cheaply would be a major coup.
