Because, as you mentioned, they are suborbital. Lynx apogee is only around 60 Km if I remember right. Nope. Astronautix covers Cruise Missiles and Suborbs as well. http://www.astronautix.com/mfrs/xcor.htm Its search function seems to be down at the moment. Google "Astonautix" and whatever keyword s...

clearly using liquid hydrogen cooling is a plus for any space propulsion application of polywell fusion, and having a more graceful failure mode would reduce risks of catastrophic loss of craft, so IMHO high purity copper, possibly copper tubes (since hydrogen is also a metal, how would hydrogen flo...
