3D-printed rocket engines powered by plastic waste

 Good News Notes:

“Rocket launch startup  Skyrora, an Edinburgh-based company that’s developing a new launch vehicle for small satellites, has successfully tested its new rocket engines in their first stationary ground-firings, a huge step on the way toward developing their launch vehicle. Skyrora’s rocket engines are novel not only in their use of 3D printing, but also because the fuel that powers them is developed from plastic waste — a new type of fuel called ‘Ecosene’ the startup says makes its launch vehicles greener and more ecologically sound than the competition.”
