Somebody please disprove me, but their bombastic rhetoric leaves me cold.

unfortunately i agree, except it doesn't leave me cold, it leaves me with a slight hint of bile in the back of my throat....

I agree.. not much info... but neither anything negative or wrong.. so I'll still support them.

Sound like they've practised their lines over and over again.....
crappy animation also....

Eveyrthing is based upon the fact that they can use the existing airforce base as a launchpad...

Hmm. For a bunch of people who want to see this private space travel market up and humming, you are hard to please. A seat for the price of an exotic sports car sounds tempting, doesn't it?

Specifically, why is this so hard to believe?

Stefan, you sound like the people who didn't believed in SpaceShipOne in the beginning...

From a game developers view, the Annimations is very well done for a space development company, or do you want them to create a whole AAA game and movie about their project ?

And what do you expect ? To have a vehicle ready and shown directly when they start to talk public ?
I think this starts to sound like gamers who want the game instantly... I thought supporting the Space Industry is believing in them... cause we ALL should know that they can't have a vehicle from the beginning!

If we all start trashing their ideas and dreams... we'll NEVER reach space... cause we all know it's NOT possible right now, I note again NOT possible, but give AERA and others a chance to show their dreams and ideas to us!

And I'll support them, cause this whole industry needs a lot more help.
And yes.. it's all build on dreams etc; so what ?

I'm sure your negative comments won't help them at all.
And even if they would fail, I respect them for trying!

no drawings of their rocket have been released. (at least I couldn't find any)

even Scaled, with all the secrecy they imposed on their bid on the XPrize, released PDF datasheets of SS1 and White KNight in April 2003 (I still remember how excited I was when I first saw them,I knew Rutan would do it all along).


so forgive me if I place this alongside Ridge Nebula Airlines, only with more money.

I think a lot of Bill Sprague. He worked with Truax and aside from Beal, is one of the few big pressure-fed advocates around. The hybrid guys weren't the only ones pushing pressure-feds, you know.
