Bristol Spaceplanes Limited
Bristol Spaceplanes Limited is dedicated to developing a sequence of progressively more advanced spaceplanes. The first vehicle is the Ascender small sub-orbital spaceplane. If built soon, Ascender would enable the UK to become the European centre of the new space age. This is likely to happen soon, when reusable launchers like aeroplanes replace expendable ones like ballistic missiles. Spaceplanes will slash launch costs by enabling an aviation approach to space transportation. They will enable a rapid expansion of space science, exploration, and tourism.http://www.bristolspaceplanes.com/
