thanks Dave,

  this is fascinating.  Total reusabiity is broader than SpaceX: from
Skylon to Blue Origin. Winged ascent & descent, SSTO, has a bigger
payload fraction than ballistic ascent & decent. In the end, the
accountants make the judgement call after the engineers test.

   I only wish I had the means to attend this year's IAC. I am trying to
save up for IAC 2018.

- Keith.
