New Hypersonic Space Plane Is Called the “Sexbomb” for Some Reason

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel


A Canadian aerospace company has chosen an eyebrow-raising name for a hypersonic space plane it plans to launch in 2022: “Sexbomb.”

Space Engine Systems (SES) announced that it wants to launch the, uh, Sexbomb in Manitoba, according to a press release from the company. The vehicle will be used to test the company’s spacecraft engine prototype.

Of course, you might be wondering what’s with the name. Perhaps it was inspired by Tom Jones 0 or maybe the employees are all just huge Scott Pilgrim fans. Or, more realistically, maybe it’s just a grabby name from Elon Musk’s meme marketing playbook.
