Nice discussion about this plane/rocket taking off and cruising at altitude. But, what would power the plane/rocket as it approaches and lands? Will it have enough wingspan to glide? Will that wingspan be torn off when at maximum speed?
The Wright brothers didn't invent flight, there were gliders and powered gliders before them. They are credited being the first to have controlled flight, with the ability to control direction, altitude, and speed of their plane throughout the flight.
So, my questions about safe landing is very important. But not one word in this article discussed landing. So I remain unimpressed.
