Check out this link

This kind of stuff is being done by private companies without government funding. It's amazing!
The future is going to be very interesting. Heres a link to the outfit building the engines seen above:

Armadillo Aerospace

This kinda makes it easier to understand why nations need to establish clear policies for space exploration/exploitation. Seem like in just 20-30 years space will be accesible to anyone with a few 100,000 euros.

I'd never run across Armadillo before... seems they have a video of their "challenge" qualification test hover that went pretty well, with only a small amount of oscillation... there are all kinds of "little" space companies popping up all over. Hover 90 Second Video.

Thanx, I'd likely never have heard of them without your post.
