Another spaceplane enters the mix!

Post by Hotdog »

Swiss startup considering space launches from Florida
Established in 2012, the Payerne, Switzerland-based company is developing a suborbital space shuttle to put small satellites in orbit.

Named the Suborbital Aircraft Reusable, or SOAR, the space plane would launch from the top of the Swiss Space Systems modified Airbus A300 jet at an altitude of 33,000 feet, or 10,000 meters.
