Interesting. Looks as if Reaction Engines' approach may not be the only economic way to orbit...

I think you mean "stage" not "state"

Considering that their approach (massively complex and as-yet unproven engines mounted to high-fineness-ratio eggshells) is about as *un*economic as you could get... I sure as hell *hope* that someone else comes up with something...

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

...ISTR "singe" is also a racial slur for native Africans that originated from one of the Rhodesian dialects. It's based on "singed" or "burnt".
