Blackstar Spaceplane

A quick check of Technorati shows me that the Aviation Week & Space Technology story about the Blackstar Spaceplane has been making the rounds the last day or two, and I'm sure no one has been waiting for me to weigh in on it, but what the heck? It's an amazing story, if true. Conspiracy theorists are (virtually) always wrong, but I suppose that doesn't mean there really aren't the occasional conspiracies, does it?

The article also serves to remind me of the existence of the Air Force Space Command, which I'd forgotten about in the last few months. Neither the future nor space belongs to America in the Space Opera I'm outlining, but there's still a place called the United States in the mid-twenty-second century when the story opens. The existence of this spaceplane might influence what the American players are doing off-stage, though, come to think of it.
