I like the idea. I assume all financed by state / local government along with private industry ?

Excellent! I'd love for the area to bolster its presence in space.

The article states that this isn't "science fiction." But I didn't realize that horizontally launched RLVs were already a reality. I thought they were more of an up-and-coming concept with lots of promise, as opposed to something you could touch. I wish the article had specifics about timing. I'm thinking 2 decades.

Jake check out my story next week on those rockets Several companies are actually doing flights tests (most in Texas) and they showed them off the other other at this conference... Real Buck Rogers type stuff....

Steve Fouga

Will do. I'll look forward to reading it.

A year or so ago, there had been discussion of eventually adding regional (domestic) commercial flights to Ellington, since Hobby is basically landlocked into its current footprint. Does this new development mean those plans are now dead?

Steve Fouga

Doesn't seem like it to me. Ellington seems easily big enough for both.

Love it!
