Let’s see… a company I’ve never heard of is planning 100 flights, next year, of a reusable, amazingly reliable, very cheap, single-stage, rocket-only spaceplane that they currently have some pretty 3D renderings of?

I notice their web address is/was spacexc.com - too similar to spacex.com perhaps?
