SCRAMSPACE scramjet


The USA's X-51A WaveRider has got some competition from Australia. Unlike the crap we get from NASA about New York to London in 15 seconds, these guys are talking about a space launch vehicle. The glib narrator wants his super-sonic airliner, but nobody else mentions it.
       They are planning a September launch from the Andøya Rocket Range in Norway, 200 miles North of the Arctic Circle, and 500 miles from Kristiansund, site of younger son's oil field adventure. There is also an airbase in Andøya. Back in 1982 an SR-71 had to divert there.
