John Batchelor and I welcomed back Doug Messier of Parabolic Arc (www.parabolicarc.com) who has been reporting on the suspension of the Lynx spacecraft and XCOR personnel layoffs related to the Lynx. During our discussion, Doug said that XCOR had laid off just under half their employees. Most of those who were dismissed were working on the Lynx. He said money was an issue plus the new XCOR corporate leaderships felt it needed to make changes in the company. He said there was not enough money to pursue both the Lynx and the engine competition for ULA upper stage Centaur rocket motor. Doug was asked if Lynx ticket holders would be getting refunds but he did not know the answer to that question. He also said they were competing with Blue Origin and Aerojet Rocketdyne regarding the ULA engine in question. When asked why XCOR fell behind on Lynx production, he indicated that there were wing and other problems plus financial issues. He suggested too that it was challenging to build a spaceplane that would fly like a jet and go to Mach 3. Other XCOR and Lynx comments were offered during our Hotel Mars segment for this week. You can email Mr. Batchelor or Doug Messier through me at drspace@thespaceshow.com. In addition, Doug can be reached through his website, www.parabolicarc.com.
