Reaction Engines @ SSB

Oliver Nailard from Reaction Engines came to Space Studio Banbury to talk to year 12 and year 13 physics students and interested year 11 students about his role as a rocket engineer. 

He spoke to them about the development of rockets and some of the big barriers/problems with rocket technology and then went through how Reaction Engines are trying to overcome some of these with their new Sabre engine.  He emphasised the growing size of the space industry, not only in the UK but locally and the exciting changes that their new rocket engine will potentially bring to the space industry.
