Rockets of Today

— failed plans, 2017-present —

This section is for projects which seemed promising enough so they got written up on this page, but then were dropped before they ever reached orbit. Some of them have good ideas which might make some kind of comeback later in some different form. So far only three rockets have made the transition to this section: Vector Launch (which went bust), Boeing’s Phantom Express project for DARPA (which was abandoned as too difficult), and Orbital/Northrup’s Omega (which they shelved when the Air Force showed no interest). Several other marginal ideas are probably waiting to come over here soon...
