I was over at ?Spacefuture's vehicle design page, and I've always wondered about the status for some of the vehicles

Specifically, Space Access, Star-Raker, and Skylon

I've looked at Skylon's website, and that answered a few of my questions, but does anyone know what happened to the other 2? Are they still going? Are they dead? On holding status?

Any other details? Are the companies actually closed, or are they like Kistler? Any other details.

Star Raker has been dead for many years. It was my favorite spaceplane concept. Perhaps with a new materials revolution.

I'll stick with an expendable 100 ton to leo expendable HLLV.

Star Raker could cost more than VentureStar at 20 billion.
