DSL is a concept for an advanced Two-Stage-to-Orbit (TSTO) space transportation system (STS), under investigation at the Space Systems Analysis Division of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

Very cool post Nans,

I had no idea the Germans were looking at an independant launch capacity. it makes sence, rather than be at the mercy of the ESA and the Airiane 5.

Although it is a national study I believe the hope is that ESA adopts it as this woud be the only realistic way of seeing an operational system produced, rather like the BAe HOTOL of the 1980's which was sadly not to be, although it did lead to the hypersonic engines that the US is using and developing today.
