Dawn Aerospace is developing technology to access space in a more scalable and sustainable way than is currently possible with traditional rockets. Their “spaceplanes”, such as the Mk-II Aurora, will one day launch satellites into space. It is the second rocket-powered aircraft or “spaceplane” produced by Dawn Aerospace. It will be capable of flights to above 100km altitude, the border to space, before returning to land at an airport. Upon landing it can be refuelled and flown again within hours. It will be the first vehicle to ever be capable of such a feat multiple times per day.
