Someone recently asked me what advantages the Fenris engine will bring to the space economy. Here’s how it pencils out.

· On current spacecraft 96% of the load is taken up by the stuff that gets you to space and only 4% winds up being stuff you can do in space (aka payload).

· The current rate of astronaut loss is 3.2 people per 100 launches; 19 astronauts and cosmonauts have died trying to go just 100 miles vertical.

· Compare that with .002 deaths per 10 billion passenger miles flown by commercial aircraft.

Fenris will transform the space economy…
