That whole thing was build by a small company from Manchester. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The same company that attached rocket thrusters to a Rover Mini in another Top Gear episdode.

They fired the Mini down a ski ramp to see if it can jump as far as a human. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

This new project was the biggest non-commercial rocket ever constructed in europe.

There is a private group in the USA which plans to send a man into orbit by using a modified repro V-2 missile with cockpit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif


This Robin-Reliant shuttle was just a fun project of course. It was not intended to reach the orbit but to fire it up to 10,000 feet and let it come down with a parachute http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Isn't there a competition with a million pound or dollar prize for any non state sponsored team to get a rocket into space?

I dont know if it is still running. That guy from Microsoft won it with his Spaceship-1.
