Hadn't NASA just lost a similiar prototype, which also used composite fuel
tanks (albeit canonical oxygen/hydrogen in cryogenic storage), which was
uniformly considered a major throwback for NASA's comeback plans
(considering recent financial cuts)?

I dunno, what NASA Ames does, strikes me as a high-quality outfit groping
for new fields (paralleles to recent military research situation in
Russia come to mind). Comments?
