Via Winch of Atomic Rockets, this current proposal by a British company, Reaction Engines Ltd, for a vehicle wonderfully named the Skylon. (Click to see full image)
No dull wedge shapes or anvil aerodynamics here! With those wingtip jet engines and little canard wing forward, the Skylon seems to hurtle into the future straight from 1959. (Compare to the winged shuttle in my banner illo at top.) In a concession to modernity the Skylon is an unpiloted cargo vehicle. It is also enormous, much larger than it appears, due to the vast bulk of liquid hydrogen. But this is how were supposed to cross the edge of space.
Probably nothing will come of it, and we will keep getting into space the old fashioned way. But there is a reputed saying in aviation, 'looks good, flies good.' If the design cycle starts turning out exciting looking spacecraft, one of them might actually get built. Meanwhile, what a wonderful daydream!
