Boeing SLI concept NASA and the US Air Force announced Tuesday that the two organizations plan to continue joint studies of reusable launch vehicle (RLV) technology, including the possibility of a building a demonstrator vehicle. In a joint statement, NASA and the Air Force announced they agreed with the primary conclusions of a 120-day study by the two organizations, including the possibility of building a demonstrator vehicle that could later be adapted as a launch vehicle to carry cargo and crews. The Air Force will provide a "cadre of experienced people" to work with NASA on joint study efforts.
