The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty

At the behest of reader Joeman, there's now a Reg forum open into which which you can throw your Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) comments and/or suggestions.

Click here for a bigger version of the LOHAN graphicWe reckon this is a better place to slog it out than in comments on individual stories, because we find we keep having to answer the same questions, such as the old favourite "Why don't you use hydrogen instead of helium?"

If we pool all the LOHAN stuff down in forums, I'll only have to answer this one more time. Well, after this time. The reason we don't use hydrogen is because we like tobacco too much. Simple as that.

So, you lovely people, let's get thing rolling down in the spaceplane mosh pit. Here's something to get you started: our updated mission summary, showing just where we're at with LOHAN...
