[dvice]ESA Approves Single-Stage to Orbit Spaceplane

The Skylon spaceplane is a single stage to orbit craft, meaning that it doesn't use booster rockets of any kind and can take off and land from a conventional runway. This kind of integrated package is tricky to put together, but if they can make it work, the cost of launching a payload to geostationary orbit would be fifteen times cheaper than it is now

It looks more like a Viper MKII than something a skylon would fly.
