Skylon concept looks a bit like something from Gerry Anderson
Mention in the previous comments thread of the similarity between the ESA/UK Skylon concept and Fireball XL-5 reminded me of this even more striking similarity (basically the same concept, I think, just a few years back) with the doomed Fireflash atomic airliner:
Personally I think the world would be a better place if more stuff looked like it had come out of Gerry Anderson shows.
Let's just hope they can get the wheels down for landing, though. Curse that Hood!
