FYI:

RRX Aerospace, is proceeding, with development, of a preliminary hybrid engine design and, possibly, prototype. RRX Aerospace expects excellent return on investment, in the 7-75 year range.

in the 7-75 year range.
That's the sort of certainty I like to put in my project plans!
I hope they engineer better than they punctuate.

It's all about the funding!

When JFK said we would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade many experts thought he was nuts. It's pretty amazing what can be done when you throw goobs of money, people and resources at a problem/project.

It' is quite a range of years I'll admit. Did you see some of their work though? Some of it is pushing numbers around and developing theories or processes and not actual products.

Well, no - that 7-75 years isn't a development time, but an ROI. They are saying that if the idea works, it may or may not turn a profit in my lifetime. I won't be rushing to invest any time soon...

This looks to me like a scam. The diagram is non-descriptive and the description is just word salad. It has no meaning whatsoever. And the corporate information is so thin it leads me to believe it is just a one-man operation that does......well......he made a website.

Could be right, I could find no information on the parent company "RSL" assuming the "R" stands for Rutherford.
