Currently every mission to space destroys a rocket costing between $45 million and $200 million and takes around three year to build. The vision of SKYLON is a fully reusable spaceplane that can take off from a runway like an aeroplane, reach orbit with 15 tonnes of cargo, and then return to land back on the runway. This will make access to space more available, more reliable and cheaper. The talk outlines the technologies that are being developed to achieve this vision by the early 2020s.

This talk is part of the Cambridge and Anglian Materials Society meetings series.
