In the wake of the announcement of the government's investment into Reaction Engines and their Skylon not-rocket, I thought it'd be good to have a sort of r+d thread, what interesting technologies or products have you seen or heard of that others would find interesting? Ie. I had no idea about Skylon before I read about the govt's investment, I've looked into it since, fascinating stuff, especially given it's potential.

Also this shouldn't be confined to science, maybe interesting new ways of going about legal or political somethings, or whatever.

I follow all sorts of science publications and have never heard of Skylon before. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Where did you first hear of this if you don't mind my asking?

Something like this

Just your conventional science newspaper article, I think it was on the Telegraph. Exciting stuff, if it works they estimate it'd cut the costs of going to space by 95% or so!

Oh, and it's British, which is nice. Maybe we can reclaim our world-beating aviation heritage of the middle of the 20th century as space becomes ever present. I hope space mining companies are looking at possible integration into this.

Something will go wrong for us, it always does.
