There was an excellent multi-page article on the SABRE development project in last weeks Flight International...It's looking very promising.

They need to get some real business revenue into the company otherwise this just bumbles along forever as one of those never ending British research projects.

I’d suggest MOD applications for hypersonic missiles - do that now and find the space ship off the back end

Well, they're currently finishing the construction of the engine test bed facility (in the UK) so it does seem a bit quiet at the moment but once thats done and the engines start testing with the cooler technology, it will be in the news again.

Some more good news from Reaction Engines....looks like the relationship with RR is deepening. Given RR's work with Boom, Virgin Galactic and Tempest its not really a surprise.
