Any relation to Expert?[edit]

Is there any relation between this project and the European Experimental Rentry Testbed (Expert)? (announcement) --IanOsgood (talk) 00:24, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, they are both re-entry experiments/technology test-beds but they are most definitely two separate programmes. IXV is part of ESA's Future Launchers Preparatory Programme while EXPERT is funded through the Basic Technology Research Programme and the General Support Technology Programme.

Update[edit]

Article needs updating with successful helicopter drop test with sub orbital drop test from Vega launcher next year and plans for followup PRIDE reusable robotic orbiter craft. WatcherZero (talk) 21:11, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Jargon[edit]

This article is mostly unreadable jargon (unless you are a rocket scientist). 58.168.244.174 12 February 2015

There is quite a lot covered in relatively simpler terms and links to some terms like lifting body. The rest can be ignored by a newcomer. It's pretty hard to dumb down a technical subject.  Stepho  talk  05:26, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Aviation[edit]

Sources call this a spaceplane [1][2][3][4] so seems like it should be an Aviation topic -- 65.94.43.89 (talk) 10:47, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

More details on parachutes used[edit]

Is any detail published on the parachutes used on the Feb 2015 reentry ? eg number, shape, diameter/dimensions, descent rate, weight of parachutes ? - Rod57 (talk) 14:47, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

ESA mag artist impression shows single round parachute. Video talks of hypersonic drogue, hypersonic parachute, supersonic parachute with staged dereefing. - Rod57 (talk) 10:23, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

How does it compare to say X37[edit]

?

What lift to drag ratio at various air speeds[edit]
