Space flight, simulators, astronomy, books, flying, music, science, education: whatever the obsession of the moment might happen to be.

It's actually just "BSP" but Greg Burch's Big Space Plane 4.0 is freakishly big (click to see a larger picture and check the size of the pilots in the cockpit window). This view shows it firing its rocket engines after having been dropped from its "first stage" carrier aircraft. I took off from KSC, flew east, and climbed to an altitude of about 56 kilometers for the drop, flying at roughly Mach 11.
