An operational Delta Clipper might require new triple-propellant, superefficient rocket motors being developed by the Russians for their own SSTO project.
McDonnell Douglas and Lockheed are investing their own money in SSTO research because they believe it's the future.

SSTOs have long been a dream because they are fully reusable and are able to take off and land horizontally from a traditional runway and so make the cost of reaching orbit very much cheaper - estimated at better than a 20th of current levels.
Amid an ambitious 20-month $59 million development program, they are building the Delta Clipper, a unique wingless single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) vehicle that will carry payloads into low earth orbit and return to earth in one piece.
Different versions of the new SSTO craft could carry payloads including scientific probes, cargo and crews for the planned space station and interplanetary missions, and Star Wars experiments.
