Orizont space rocket

Romanian X Prize and X Prize Cup contestants ARCA presented their Orizont space craft last Saturday to the public of Bucharest. The Orizont is a winged rocket that, like X Prize winner SpaceShipOne, is to be dropped from a plane, after which it will use its H2O2 powered engine to climb to sub-orbital space. ARCA, formed by a group of students in 1999, aims to make the Orizont a safe and environment friendly sub-orbital space craft.
