Current access to space relies on expensive single use rockets. What if you could simply climb into a reusable aircraft, take off on a runway and fly into space? Well that dream is closer than you think.

At Reaction Engines we are working on the next generation of air breathing rocket engine that makes this a reality. 30 years in development, the SABRE engine is moving into the exciting test phase of development at our facility near Oxford. When proven it is set to revolutionise space access and provide a path to hypersonic travel and all with a clean hydrogen burning engine.
