LOHAN (Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator)

Hi Paul,
Since this is in the UK I suppose you've seen it but for those that haven't:

El Reg cuts ribbon on new Special Projects Bureau http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/01/spb_launch/

Earth orbit for £1,000? You must be joking http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/04/n_prize/

El Reg to unleash rocket-powered spaceplane http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/07/vulture_2/

LOHAN spaceplane project starting to shape up nicely http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/29/lohan_concepts/

Can you handle LOHAN's substantial globes? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/08/05 ... challenge/

LOHAN team buried under ballockets http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/08/09 ... _concepts/

We are working on one of those things on one of the projects I'm on.

On our Sugar Shot to Space project [url]sugarshot.org[/url], our static test firing this weekend of what will be the world's largest sugar motor ever made is being delayed due to a leaky mid bulkhead delay grain. If that leaked it would result in a catastrophic motor failure.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for the heads-up - I'd missed some of those. Also thanks for introducing me to the word "ballocket", which is presumably the evil twin of the rockoon...

Best of luck with getting the glitches out of the motor, and here's to a successful, non-catastrophic firing!

Cheers,
Paul
