XCOR Aerospace Lynx Rocketplane

The Lynx rocketplane is a horizontal-takeoff, horizontal-landing (HTHL) rocket-powered spaceplane that carries two people on a suborbital parabola. During the flight, they wear pressure suits made by Orbital Outfitters. Engine test video below.


This is the flight vehicle in development at the Mojave Space Port, and the subject of the Axe Apollo superbowl ad.
