Alan Bond from Reaction Engines presents a talk about the latest developments about Skylon and Project Troy. This was one of a series of talks from the UK Mars Society Conference 2012 and was held at the National Space Centre in Leicester on the 25th August.

 

Skylon is a concept for a totally re-usable single-stage rocket plane that can reach low earth orbit. Project Troy is a concept for a large space-based assembly of a transportation system which can ferry people and cargo from Earth to Mars with all mission infrastructure being totally re-used for any future missions.

It is private enterprise and visionaries such as Alan Bond, Richard Branston etc that will develop the technology and pave the way for human expansion to space. The technology is in fact mostly there, however the human aspects of deep space travel have still to be be addressed. Reply
