But…2019 is 4 years away

Europe’s Newly-Tested Space Plane Aims for Next Launch in 2019. Which is long enough to completely rebuild and revamp the IXV. They’re trying to best decide how to have the IXV touch down on land (landing gear vs glide chute) and will use data from this month’s IXV launch and landing to make a final determination.

Still…4 years seems like an awful long time between one test launch and another.
