The 2012 Odyssey Essay Collection

In Powering the Future, Building the Engines of Tomorrow, Odyssey speculates on the potential of the SKYLON space plane to radically change the dynamics of travelling beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.

Here, gathered together in one place for the first time, is this year’s collection of Odyssey essays. Literally just a click away, we hope you will enjoy browsing the anthology, which in many cases celebrates the unique history and heritage of the BIS.
