Alan Bond is the British Inventor of an new combined Rocket/Jet engine called SABRE that will propel aircraft at speeds of up to five times the speed of sound or directly into Earth orbit.

 

Following in the footsteps of Sir Frank Whittle,(Jet Engine) Sir Christopher Cockerell (Hovercraft) and Barnes Wallis (Bouncing Bomb), Alan tells us how he has had to fight his corner over several decades to get his vision of Space Travel supported by the British Government.

 

Now, in this exclusive interview, Alan tells us how British Space Travel will advance with the recent grant of £60 million from the UK Space Agency and what still has to be done to get the British Space Shuttle into daily service
