this[^] looks great. However, the author of the article clearly doesn't understand that air breathing engines will not operate in space due to the lack of, well, air. Quite amusing really as she usually appears to write reasonably well informed articles.

"With air-breathing engines, future space travel could be faster and cheaper, in part due to the potential for reducing the absurdly heavy onboard liquid oxygen weight currently necessary to make that journey from earth to space.

Air-breathing engines could allow for far larger payloads revolutionizing cargo transport to space and between points at home."

Hmm: to be fair perhaps she just means to get to space and then use another means of propulsion once there is no further usable air.
