Buran[edit]

Shouldn't Buran program be on this template? 70.55.85.84 (talk) 12:19, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

No, Buran was a spacecraft, not a carrier rocket. Meus Nomen 09:19, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
So why do we have the X-37 ??? Hektor (talk) 13:31, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Looks like an anon added it and nobody noticed. Reverted. --GW 14:27, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
"According to [1] Buran had a cargo bay that could launch and retreive spacecraft, therefore, a space launch system. -- 65.94.169.222 (talk) 05:00, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Launch systems[edit]

SpaceShipTwo is put under a "current" section here. In what context does that apply ? First, SS2 has not yet launched under its own power. Second, its a suborbital system, only PLANNING to reach Karman line. Lots of other prospective projects should be categorized here too, if SS2 is listed ( Armadillo, Masten, BlueOrigin, RVT and so on .. ) or distinction should be made between suborbital and orbital launch systems, and clearly drawn line between things that are "in development" and that are operational. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.87.59.206 (talk) 03:02, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

X-37[edit]

Does the X-37 qualify as a reusable launch system? Seems to me that based on current evidence it is the payload. For that matter no way you spin it is it completely reusable as the Atlas V certainly isn't reused. ChiZeroOne (talk) 16:19, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

SpaceShipTwo, Divine Dragon (Shenlong) are current systems?[edit]

Altough SpaceShipTwo and Shenlong programmes built spacecrafts able to reach space neither did that to date. I suggest these should by classified under the Planned category. Tom Paine (talk) 12:30, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
