Methane Engine

"NASA contractors Alliant Techsystems and XCOR Aerospace are developing a rocket engine powered by liquid methane. Earlier this year the companies conducted a series of successful test firings of their 7,500 pound-thrust LOX/methane engine . Such technology could one day allow for the exploration of deep space, as methane can be found or made on many worlds throughout our solar system."
